Who's political?

James Dobson's right-wing Familiy Research Council has been running radio ads supporting David Prosser and bemoaning the fact that the Supreme Court race has been politicized.

But Milwaukee News Buzz notes:

Although the Family Research Council ads weep for the politicization of this state’s Supreme Court races, the ads are funded by the Council’s “Faith, Family, Freedom” political action committee. It’s website says it’s targeting a dozen states – including Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan – in a campaign against big government.


On Feb. 25, State Rep. Robin Vos (R-Burlington) appeared on Council President Tony Perkins’ radio show, Washington Watch Weekly, in support of the legislation curtailing the power of unions.


“We can’t afford what we’ve already got,” he said of public employee benefits. “The only option we really have is to give those tools to local governments and take them ourselves as a state and say taxpayers have to come first, we have to ensure we have good, quality services but at a price we can afford.”
