Part of the problem here is that Walker said he was not going to challenge anything related to the recall petitions. Which is true, to a point. There are out-of-state organizations who do not represent any interest in the state who are trying to challenge items related to the petitions.
If we expect Judges to maintain a completely unbiased view, they should be barred from participating in anything relating to the types of cases they may hear. Which pretty much means they could have no political views / activities, not donate to anything, not socialize with anyone involved etc... The public would expect the Judge to remove himself from having a life. I think the best way to approach this is to allow the Judge to recuse himself from anything he may feel conflicted about. After all, the Judge is in that position because the people trust hos judgement, right?
"You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
