Last Friday Wisconsin Judge Maryann Sumi, breaking all court precedent, overruled the electorate, the Wisconsin state legislature and Governor Scott Walker by issuing a temporary restraining order that prevented implementation of the state's new public sector employment law.
Earlier today the invaluable RedState reported:
Judge Maryann Sumi should have recused herself entirely from the Wisconsin battle due to her inability to be neutral in this case. You see, Maryann Sumi has a clear conflict of interest. Her son is a political operative who also happens to be a former lead field manager with the AFL-CIO and data manager for the SEIU State Council. Both the SEIU and the AFL-CIO have members who are public-sector employees in Wisconsin. In fact, as a federation, the AFL-CIO can boast of several member-unions that represent public-sector employees. Maryann Sumi is hardly an unbiased judge in the matter.
Not only that, but Jacob 'Jake' Sinderbrand is a virulent anti-Walker campaigner. Consider, for example, his Facebook page.
Sinderbrand's Marxist crew is linked throughout.
The material is so offensive that it wouldn't surprise me to find out that members of Sinderbrand's posse are among those issuing threats to Wisconsin's legislators and Governor.
Long story short: Judge Sumi has a dog in the hunt.
She's a disgrace for not recusing herself and should be recalled or removed from office if the law permits.
