Prosser Watch: Fox says alleged victim should resign

You can't make this up. Fox News natterer Greta Van Susteren said Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson should resign because Walker clone  Justice David Prosser tried to choke Justice Ann Walsh Bailey.

ThinkProgress has the story:
Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren has called for the resignation not of Prosser but Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson:
And while I have no idea who is off the wall (Justice Prosser or Justice Walsh or both), I do know one thing, CHIEF JUSTICE SHIRLEY ABRAHAMSON sure is not doing her job to lead the court and to give confidence to the people of Wisconsin. She needs to step aside and let someone else attempt to run that zoo.
Abrahamson is a previous victim of Prosser’s abusive behavior. In March, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, “Justice David Prosser exploded at Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson behind closed doors, calling her a ‘bitch’ and threatening to ‘destroy’ her.” While Prosser admitted he “probably overreacted,” he also said his outburst was “entirely warranted.” Bradley, Prosser’s latest alleged victim, wrote an email to the other justices complaining of his behavior.
Isn't that what abusers do -- blame the victim?
