At 11:00, We Find Out Just How Crazy JoAnne Kloppenburg Is

This will be fun.

And appar­ently I may be the only one who might hold Tom Foley – the Wis­con­sin Lib­eral Blogosphere’s “Best Legal Mind” with a sus­pended law license (Just fin­ish you CLE work already and pay your dues pal)to task for his pledge he’d join the Wis­con­sin GOP if Klop­pen­burg files a suit.  For the record Tom, most Wis­con­sin or National Repub­li­can Oper­a­tives I know couldn’t care less that you’re gay.  In fact, if this out­ing by a left-wing group was cor­rect, the old Oppo Chief at the RNC (before he was sacked in May 2010 for being a com­plete and utter jerk, or so I’m told) may be gay.

Heck, I don’t care that you’re gay Tom.

Just tend to think you’re a jerk; I’m sure the feel­ing is mutual

The cam­paign for state supreme court chal­lenger JoAnne Klop­pen­burg said she would make an announce­ment at 11:00 a.m. Tues­day on a pos­si­ble legal chal­lenge against the results of the state-wide recount in the race for Supreme Court Justice.

She had until the end of Tues­day to decide whether to take legal action after los­ing the recount to incum­bent Jus­tice David Prosser.

Klop­pen­burg asked for a statewide recount after pre­lim­i­nary fig­ures had her los­ing to Prosser.

Brian Nemoir, cam­paign man­ager for Prosser, says the recount has been an exhaus­tive process and it’s time to move on.

If they do file a suit we will fight that suit with all vigor.  It’s unnecessary.”

The recount results were cer­ti­fied last week show­ing Jus­tice Prosser beat­ing chal­lenger JoAnne Klop­pen­burg by about 7,000 votes.

Sources to 620 WTMJ radio talk show host say Klop­pen­burg will indeed con­cede the race.  We’ll know at the top of the hour if they are correct.

No doubt Foley’s sigh­ing in relief and hop­ing that Sykes got it right; no doubt the first time in Foley’s mind.

UPDATE II: Politico is report­ing their own sources are con­firm­ing the Sykes report.

UPDATE III: Open blog, insert foot.

As Tom has pointed out, I appear to have libeled him. Most likely on the gay com­ment, and for that I sin­cerely apol­o­gize for.  Maybe over the past cou­ple of years of skim­ming over Tom’s posts on gay mar­riage and his crit­i­cisms of con­ser­v­a­tive Chris­tians on homo­sex­ual issues, I mis­took his pas­sion on them as a piss-poor assump­tion that he was gay himself.

I hon­estly meant no harm or mal­ice from it.

My mis­take, and I apol­o­gize for it, as this quote from one of Foley’s own posts, which was passed on to me shows — I am really frickin’ wrong.

I don’t get the obses­sion with homo­sex­u­als, which seems to be a fea­ture of both fun­da­men­tal­ist style Chris­tian­ity and polit­i­cal con­ser­vatism. Per­son­ally I don’t think about gay peo­ple too often. Chris­t­ian con­ser­v­a­tives will often tell you they aren’t so much con­cerned with gay peo­ple per se, but rather their focus is on “homo­sex­ual acts.”

Maybe that’s why I’m not a con­ser­v­a­tive Chris­t­ian because, trust me, homo­sex­ual acts are about the last things I care to focus on.* It makes lit­tle sense to me why self-proclaimed anti-homosexuals would want to focus on homo­sex­ual acts because the only peo­ple who should be focus­ing on homo­sex­ual acts are, well, homosexuals.

So again, Tom, my sin­cer­est apol­o­gizes.  I AM AN ASS.

    Wow, this post is the biggest dick move ever on a local blog, and I’ve seen a lot of them.  Can’t wait for you to eat shit on the correction.

  • Anony­mous

    I’ve reached out to Tom so I can offer one.

  • Asher Heimer­mann

    How fuck­ing low of you Kevin. You pig.

  • Anony­mous

    You kiss your mother with that mouth Asher?

  • http://www.bloggingblue.com Zach W.

    It’s just unfor­tu­nate that you didn’t real­ize what a dick move this was before you clicked “post.”

    Then again, maybe it was all part of a strat­egy on your part, given that this is the most com­ments you’ve got­ten on an entry here in a good long time.

  • Anony­mous

    No, I sin­cerely screwed up. Trust me, I didn’t mean any harm.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=503309470 Cindy Kilkenny

    Rats. And here I thought it was going to get interesting.

    So, he’s really let his license lapse?

  • http://www.bloggingblue.com Zach W.

    Yeah darn.…here I was hop­ing we’d have another law­suit involv­ing a right-wing blog­ger as a respondent.

  • Anony­mous

    That, or he never fin­ished his con­tin­u­ing legal edu­ca­tion (CLE) and has to wrap up some course work. The link for that went straight to the Wis­con­sin Bar association’s lawyer search.

    Also, I’ve had the fight over his law license with him once already. He tried to scold me by say­ing he could still go before a judge as an offi­cer of the court and I would be some poor schmuck try­ing to attempt to say I know the law.

    Good times.

    Lame excuse.  Let’s fol­low your logic.  You assumed that any­one who wrote about “gay mar­riage and …crit­i­cisms of con­ser­v­a­tive Chris­tians on homo­sex­ual issues” must they them­selves be gay.  Tom has pro­vided rather sen­si­ble and con­sis­tent crit­i­cism of Kloppenberg’s pur­suit of a recount.  He makes a snarky post say­ing he’ll join the Wis­GOP if she files suit.  You decide to post to “hold him to task”, per­haps hours after he made his post.  (Brave move!  It’s not like he deleted his post or retreated from his position.) 

    You make a deci­sion to resort to ad hominem attacks.  You imply there’s some dis­honor in get­ting a law degree, then not keep­ing up on your CLEs.  You call him a “jerk” with­out sup­port­ing evi­dence.  You call him “gay” as if that should be an insult in itself. To put the cherry on top, you refer to an RNC oppo’s out­ing as if it were con­nected to the rest of the post.

    You didn’t mean any harm”?  Really?  What was the pur­pose of the insults, then?  Your story is incon­sis­tent.  You say you believed he was gay; you say it “was a joke.”  Which is it?

    This legal analy­sis From The Guy who’s told us for years “he’s a future cus­toms attor­ney” ?
    I agree with Zack. This Blog is pretty poor since most folks have tired of the  Kevin good, every­one else bad men­tal­ity of its author. Our Kev who knows all.
     So he’s pro­lly try­ing to drive num­bers.
    At least he doesn’t pre­tend to offer REAL DEBATE.
    Blog may be put away any­ways.
    Who knows if his new employer will let him tweet and post all day like he did at while at  Kohler Co.?
    But at least lit­tle Asher boy is reading.

    No harm?  I guess this explains your 5/31 5:06 p.m. tweet “Oh no, I made Tom Foley mad. Mis­sion Accom­plished.“

    Yeah, was think­ing he was upset about the law license thing.

    No, but he sucks his father’s dick with it.

    Grow up. Asher’s an annoy­ing kid, I know from expe­ri­ence from 2006, but
    don’t go there.

    Can you think of any rea­sons why some­one with a law degree might choose to not keep their license active?  What exactly was your mis­sion here?  Arguably, Foley said some­thing that should make Kloppenburg’s ene­mies cheer.  For this, you decide it’s time to insult him?

    Kevin, the Mar­jorie Rock com­ment was from a troll who has been infect­ing my site, and I’m guess­ing oth­ers with his “wit.”  My mother, Mar­jorie, passed away in Sep­tem­ber 2009.  That should give you an idea of how low this crea­ture stoops.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FGG42ATQXA7SZ7YOVZIHSWKPLI Mar­jorie Rock

    But not as low as you stoop on a daily basis, Timmy.  Do a shot with me.  Or 12.

    Why don’t you tell me who you are.  We could have a face-to-face.

    Doesn’t say much you leave this crap up, Kevin.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FGG42ATQXA7SZ7YOVZIHSWKPLI Mar­jorie Rock

    I know who you are — a thin-skinned, whiny, past-prime unem­ployed loser who tur­tles when any­one hits back at you.

  • Other Side

    You’re still a cow­ard.  Noth­ing changes.  I’m done.  Hate your­self all you want.  I will never respond to you again.

  • Jim Spice

    We could prob­a­bly start a class action.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FGG42ATQXA7SZ7YOVZIHSWKPLI Mar­jorie Rock

    OK.  But don’t go out and hit the bot­tle.  It’s a doc­u­mented fact that alco­holics tend to raise alcoholics.
