Here is the forty-seventh article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is federal Judge Rudolph Randa. He is so honored for his blatant attempt to help the Republican Fartfuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan, Scott Walker, get away with his electioneering crimes.

A homeless man says to a Republican, "Sir, please..., I haven't had a bite in 3 days." So the Republican --being one of the nocest of that crowd-- bit him.

Q: Why can’t a republican dial 911? .. ..
A: He can't find the eleven.

Fitting candidate for the parade and grounds for citizens to also file an ethics complaint with the State Bar Association. One might say a strange perversion of looking at intent of behavior related to motivation for the legal without addressing the customary letter of the law where if addressed should be a finding of unwarranted leniency. To find the investigation as partisan seemingly requires classifying anyone who rose in politics without Walker's coat tails to be agin him--very odd.

Why don't they care?
Because it's easier to give someone the finger than a helping hand
thanks TC

A Bush the First appointee has an assistant who is married to Walker's worker. And they say Chicago is corrupt!

Another candidate that deserves a special place in your parade of Republicans, TomCat.

"Judge Randa’s May 6 decision halting the investigation is extraordinary." That may be the understatement of the month. Besides being responsible for a miscarriage of justice by halting an investigation while state court proceedings are ongoing for crimes perpetrated before SCOTUS dubiously changed the rules, Randa also used the opportunity to wage war on Democrats by accusing the bipartisan district attorneys, prosecutors and judges involved of politically-motivated retaliation against Republicans. The fact that his assistant is married to one of Walker’s campaign lawyers, is not even touched upon by PR Watch.

It seems to me that Randa (July 25, 1940) is looking towards retiring and wants to do so by creating such a stink that he'll be remembered AND with an very nicely topped-up pension fund so he can live out the rest of his life in the comfort he has grown accustomed to. Lets hope there are ways to counter his despicable decision so that Scott Walker gets what's coming to him and that there are ways to put a corrupt Randa in the cell next to him.

No, your Honor, you are missing the point. The guillotine is not LIKE limits on money in politics. The guillotine IS what you are going to get if you don't limit money in politics. Did you not hear about the guy who threatened to rip John Boehner's expletive head off because Boehner blocked unemployment extension?

"Corruption doesn’t get get much more Republican than that!"

No, it really doesn't. But having watched Rachel Maddow's show the other night in which she highlighted what is happening to various tea party organizations around the country, it is, to me, obvious that not only have the people had enough of that kind of politics but even some republicans have. I particularly enjoyed the bit where she showed the Oklahoma tea party page (whose chairman was just convicted of a felony for trying to blackmail a state senator) was taken over by hackers and re-translated into Japanese. Very amusing. But also telling, this is the fate of the uber right, they are going to fade away quickly. Because their ideas and policies are dead wrong and do not work. They create monster deficits for states that can ill afford them, Kansas and Missouri being two wonderful examples of the mess real conservatism makes of government when allowed free rein. Or reign. They get ordered by federal judges to properly fund public education, no matter that they have half a billion dollar deficit because of their misguided "cut taxes and jobs will appear" strategies. Walker won't last either, not long. Wisconsin is smarter than that.

That is one scary face - and obviously, it represents the being behind it quite well.

I must admit that Republicans are better than Democrats on one thing....that is cheating or trying to cheat.......

What's Scott Walker trying to pull now? Is it something new or his general slimeballness? (I don't care if that isn't a real word.)

I wonder how much federal Judge Rudolph Randa got paid to do this!

Ashley, I like that word, whether it is "official," or not.
"Cut taxes and jobs will appear," relates to the jobs that will appear in order to count all that money in the off shore banks. But, you knew that.
No, Joanne , I had not heard of that guy, until now; how do I give him a star?
I hope you guys are correct about the end of the Teanuts!

Wisconsin repubs are as corrupt as they come. Walker's cronies called in the markers on this one. What will the electorate do - remain ignorant and vote Red or turn the bastards out.
