WE NEED ACCOUNTABILITY AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS: The Wall Street Journal urges the U.S. Supreme Court to take the free-speech case arising out of Wisconsin’s John Doe investigation. Ann Althouse notes the inability or unwillingness — she doesn’t use the word “complicity,” but I might — of the Wisconsin state courts to deal with this and comments: “It’s one thing for federal courts to refrain from jumping into state court proceedings that might do a decent-enough job of enforcing federal rights. But here, these proceedings have worked to suppress political speech for 2 election cycles and beyond. It’s quite shocking.”
