(PatriotWise.com) — Ann Coulter pleaded with Republicans and conservatives to stop pushing an anti-abortion agenda. She said conservatives had won the battle against abortion, and Republicans were losing winnable elections because they insisted on continuing to campaign on the issue. She referred expressly to Janet Protasiewicz’s victory in the Supreme Court race in Wisconsin. Her win means the Wisconsin court has a liberal majority for the first time in over a decade.
Coulter tweeted the plea with a link to a New York Times article that outlined Protasiewicz’s primary campaign points. The candidate focused on abortion, and the report stated, “Judge Protasiewicz made a calculation from the start of the race that Wisconsin voters would reward her for making clear her positions on abortion rights.” Coulter later appeared to agree with other Twitter users who claimed the Republicans are inept at winning elections.
The race for the Supreme Court seat was between Protasiewicz and her conservative opponent Dan Kelly. The Republican ran for the seat in 2020 and was also defeated on that occasion. When Protasiewicz’s victory became clear, Kelly gave a speech that later drew widespread criticism. “This was the most deeply deceitful, dishonorable, despicable campaign I have ever seen run for the courts. It was truly beneath contempt,” he said.
The election took place the same week that Republican Rep. Dan Knodl defeated Jodi Habush Sinykin and took an empty seat in the state’s Senate, giving Republicans a supermajority and the ability to impeach. Knodl said he would consider impeaching Protasiewicz because she, and others, had let down the people of Wisconsin by imposing weak sentences on criminals. He would also consider action against Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm. The DA’s office released assault suspect Darrell Brooks Jr. on $1,000 bail. Following his release, he killed six people when he drove his SUV through a Christmas parade in Waukesha.
The state constitution allows for the impeachment of the Governor, judges, Attorney General, and the state school superintendent.
