In a series of stories last week, the AP broke news and drove the coverage as it documented how Wisconsin Republicans are considering impeaching a state Supreme Court justice before she’s even ruled on a case, an unprecedented move in a critical swing state. The reason? The new judge flipped the court’s majority control to liberals. The series of stories included the exclusive — from the targeted justice herself — that the commission that investigates judges had dismissed complaints against the justice that form the basis of the argument for impeachment. Other stories included a deep dive on how her acceptance of campaign cash from political parties, another argument for impeachment, was commonly done by other justices.
