Rebecca Bradley's Slip Of The Tongue

By Jeff Simpson

The good folks at One Wisconsin Now did some reseach on Scott Walker's flunky Justice Rebecca Bradley and what they found was beyond ugly.  

It seems when Ms. Bradley was in college at Marquette in 1992, the Clinton/Gore election did not sit too well with her.



Here are her letters in full! 

While those statements are beyond hateful, there was something she said, in trying to cover for her pure homophobic hate speech, that unwittingly showed her true colors.

In a statement, Bradley apologized "to those offended by comments I made as a young college student," and said she assures "you that those comments are not reflective of my worldview. These comments have nothing to do with who I am as a person or a jurist, and they have nothing to do with the issues facing the voters of this state. 
They have nothing to do with the issues facing the voters of this state?  Maybe the white upper class GOP voters but not most of WI.   I would hate to be an LBBQT person hoping for a fair ruling from Ms. Bradley.  

But wait there's more .......

She said she wrote the columns "as a very young student, upset about the outcome of that presidential election and I am frankly embarrassed at the content and tone of what I wrote those many years ago."
She admits that she is so pure red, dyed in the wool Republican that when the Clinton/Gore ticket beat the George HW Bush/Quayle ticket she could not control her anger and lashed out at the people she hated/blamed.  The gays and the ignorant people of WI, who were not as smart as she is when she heads to the ballot box.    

I am certain now though that is is not a member in good tsanding of the extreme right and she will hear and rule on everything completely impartial.  At least the cases she decides to stay around and listen to, and not go campaign.

As a quick aside, NO judge in history(until now) has EVER left oral arguments to go campaign.  ever.

$147,403 dollars a year doesn't buy what it used too.   Her independence is as fake as her love of hunting!

Looks like Chris Martin and his shadow group - Wisconsin Alliance for Reform, will need to spend a heck of alot more than $700,000 to get this lazy bigot elected!

PS;  The one hilarious thing that came from this breaking story, was Charley Sykes little temper tantrum.

Sykes Tweet:

. Eagerly await breathless reports on student writings of Russ Feingold, Joanne Kloppenburg, Tammy Baldwin.

I know Charley is a little slow but let me help him out. 1. The so called "liberal" media had NOTHING to do with releasing these reports it was done with some good research by One Wisconsin Now. 2. If Only Charles had say a TV show, a radio show on the biggest tower in WI and a right wing propaganda website, then maybe he could actually dig up the student writings of stated Democrats. 3. What Sykes is doing here is working the refs....he is trying to guilt them into finding same stories on the Dems(so he does not have to do the work) or else making them hesitate in the future about reporting on such stories. 4. Pretty sure Chuck does not see any problem whatsoever in her writings.

It is essential in 2016 that we elect people who are not fresh out of central casting in 1950.  


  1. Her columns, if full text. Just for context- here are the columns she wrote. If you read through them she seems pretty clear in expressing her thoughts.

  2. I would suspect that just being a Democrat or having signed the recall petition would be a cause to find one guilty based on her expressed destaste for anyone who is not of her political color or flavor!

  3. By 1992 medical science had already known for seven years that AIDS was caused by a virus, HIV, which could be spread equally by heterosexual or homosexual (though unlikely to be lesbian!) transmission -- indeed, in its home continent Africa it was and still is spread predominantly through heterosexual sex -- while other non-sexual means like contaminated blood transfusions were known to occur (Ryan White had received a contaminated blood factor for his hemophilia in 1984).

    The overlooked problem with Bradley's comment is not just that it was bigoted but that it was deeply ignorant, and even stupidly false in this major respect: two uninfected partners (of whatever gender) cannot create the virus by their behavior. Also, she'd apparently never heard of something called "safe sex" (barrier prophylactics, e.g. condoms).

    That such a person should be entrusted with a judgeship, let alone appointed to three of them in rapid and elevating succession, is dismaying. But I must say that it is par for the course of Scott Walker's decisions, viz. Act 10, WEDC, dismantling the GAB, and his whole deplorable record on health care, the state's environment, voter rights, and labor relations. Rebecca Bradley supports him on all these issues, as she is his loyal servant -- and that, of course, was his sole consideration.
