The Wisconsin Supreme Court resorts to violence

Anyone who has been following Wisconsin politics knows it has been, well, interesting. Marches on the Capitol, Senators leaving the state, midnight votes, there has been all kinds of things going on here in Wississippi. Now we have a Supreme Court judge allegedly putting a chokehold on another Supreme Court judge. His defense? He was defending himself, sort of like she flung her neck into his hands. At least its entertaining:-)

Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley late Saturday accused fellow Justice David Prosser of putting her in a chokehold during a dispute in her office earlier this month.

"The facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold," Bradley told the Journal Sentinel.

Sources told the Journal Sentinel two very different stories Saturday about what occurred. Some confirmed Bradley's version. According to others, Bradley charged Prosser, who raised his hands to defend himself and made contact with her neck.

A joint investigation by Wisconsin Public Radio and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism first reported on the incident early Saturday, stating that Prosser "allegedly grabbed" Bradley around the neck.
