David Prosser's little helpers

Early this week a sleazy new website sprang into being to deliver shrill and cowardly attacks on Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg, who is running against conservative Supreme Court Justice David Prosser in the April 5 election. is registered under Domains by Proxy, meaning the creator doesn't want to be known. On Wednesday, the site was not accessible, instead flashing a "Be Back Soon" sign. We can hardly wait.

The site -- see here (PDF) for copies of referenced pages -- consistently misspelled Kloppenburg's first name ("Joanne") while calling her "a left wing hack job." It used a Mr. Yuk symbol to declare her "Poison to Wisconsin."

Kloppenburg's years of prosecuting environmental violators under both Republican and Democratic attorneys general, the site said, "have left her with the blood of everyday Wisconsin homeowners on her hands." (Really, it said this.) It claimed she has "no judicial philosohpy," as opposed to Prosser, who has "Judicial Philosphy." And it directed readers to Prosser's campaign website and encouraged them to volunteer.

Or should that be "volutneer?"
