    PROSSER EXCUSE #1
    Prosser says he did not know about the extent of Feeney’s crimes at the time
    No one has claimed Prosser knew about all of Feeney’s crimes, only that a mother told him about her two children being assaulted. What Prosser neglects to say is that in 1978 he had knowledge of a third victim of Feeney. While the third victim was refusing to testify in court, the knowledge that there were at least three victims of Feeney should have alerted Prosser to investigate more closely. In 2002 when the Outagamie County sheriff’s department did launch a full-scale investigation of Feeney, they systematically contacted people in the different communities where Feeney served and developed leads about possible victims and uncovered numerous victims. Those same investigative techniques could have been used in 1978 if Prosser had been committed to the case. As with most serial offenders, all of their crimes are usually not known at once, but it requires investigative work to uncover them. In this case, Prosser dropped the ball even though he was personally aware of three victims.



    PROSSER EXCUSE #2
    Prosser says the crimes weren’t severe enough to warrant prosecution, claiming falsely, that it was not first degree sexual assault.
    Prosser is alarmingly trying to minimize the severity of the crimes. It is true that he did not know about the abuse in the confessional, as the victim did not disclose that until 2003, but the other charges did include first degree sexual assault. According to the 1979 police report: “Fr. Feeney then slipped his hand down and under his pajama bottom.” In 2004, Feeney was convicted of three counts of first degree sexual assault and one second degree. These charges included both the attack in the children’s bedroom, which Prosser knew about, as well the second assault in the confessional booth. The crimes could only be charged the same way that the laws were when the crime happened, so it must have been first degree sexual assault back in 1978 when the assaults occurred. This is part of a pattern of Prosser trying to downplay the seriousness of the crime.

    Re: Wisconsin Judge Prosser Assailed on Child Molestation

    Like I said before, even though the attack was done for the sake of a character assassination, it still raises some serious questions. An interesting fact I found was that Prosser was running for election during this time. I could certainly see this influencing his decision (either because he didn't have enough time to properly investigate the matter or because he didn't want to bring forth such a controversial case right before an election).

    Re: Wisconsin Judge Prosser Assailed on Child Molestation

    does anyone think this ad would be running in a normal election year?

    somehow i highly doubt it. this isn't an ad to protect kids; it's an ad to attack Walkers union bill. like all the Republicans who are suddenly sure that Congress Has To Have An Official Declaration Of War For The US To Engage Militarily, this moral charge isn't actually believed by those putting it out; it's merely a weapon.

    But here is the point - If Prosser did do what he is accused of, you don't think it's fair game? If the shoe was on the other foot, you can bet your bottom dollar that Republicans would gangbang the hell out of a Democrat in the same position.

    The victim has his own ad up and running in WI attacking Kloppenburg and her decision not to request them to take the add down.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    After having seen the integrity of the unions and the Democrats on display, it's not difficult to form an opinion.
