Ripped into? Why rip into Roggensack? Well, that's the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's characterization. Here are the details provided:
Roggensack faces Marquette University law professor Edward Fallone in the April 2 election. The winner will secure a 10-year term on the court. Fallone has focused much of his campaign on the altercation between Bradley and Prosser, saying it is emblematic of dysfunction on the court.
On Monday at a luncheon in Milwaukee, Roggensack condemned the behavior of both Bradley and Prosser, as she has in the past, and said she should not be judged by their conduct....
Roggensack on Monday said Bradley came at Prosser with a raised fist. "I believe they (were) both out of line," she said. "I said that from the very beginning. I don't think that the conduct was appropriate by either one of them."...
Bradley also said Roggensack has mischaracterized how she acted during the incident. As she has in other recent comments, Roggensack said in Friday's debate that she got between Prosser and Bradley, separated them and "held onto Justice Bradley until she calmed down."
Bradley said Roggensack did not get between them, but rather pulled her away from Prosser when his hands were around her neck. "She didn't comfort me or calm me down," Bradley said. "What she did was instantly try to shift blame."
Said Roggensack on Monday: "I got myself between the two of them and I did hold on to her . . . because she was very upset."
