There are no permanent victories in politics, but the U.S. Supreme Court came as close as we’ll get Monday by rejecting the request by Wisconsin prosecutors to resurrect their abusive, secret campaign against Governor Scott Walker’s political allies.

You may have thought this campaign against free speech had died in July 2015 when the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that the probe was “unsupported in either reason or law” and later fired Special Prosecutor Francis Schmitz. But Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm couldn’t accept his humiliation, and he and his media allies ginned up a campaign to beseech the U.S. High Court to hear the case.

The effort included the not-so-coincidental recent leak of some 1,500 pages of documents to the Guardian purporting to show scandal when there was none. On cue, the cause was picked up by the herd of independent minds at the Brennan Center for Justice, the New Yorker and New York Times.

The appeal was a long shot because the case concerned a matter of Wisconsin law. But the relentless persistence of the left in trying to prosecute political speech shows what could happen if the U.S. Supreme Court gets a five-judge liberal majority. The progressive censors will gin up cases to overturn legal precedents like Citizens United and SpeechNow v. FEC that have made it harder for government to regulate who can join with allies to influence elections.

As for Mr. Chisholm’s Wisconsin targets, they can now stop paying defense lawyers. One of those targets, Wisconsin Club for Growth Director Eric O’Keefe, went on the record with us from our first editorial in November 2013 reporting on the dawn raids and intimidation tactics. He took a risk in doing so because state law then barred targets from even speaking about their predicament.

With the Wisconsin press in the pocket of prosecutors, we were happy to help Mr. O’Keefe and the other targets fight back. The resulting legal challenges shut the probe down, and the state legislature has since rewritten its John Doe law to make such abuses less likely. Sometimes the good guys still win.

and anytime to say whatever you like.

"My right to free speech"

What Huh?

What has that got to do with singing the national anthem which is what you were hired to do?

No one has the right not to be fired from their job because in the middle of their job they get up and start grandstanding on company time their political views.

Add the NBA to the NFL to my no longer watch list:

I have taken a knee when it comes to the NFL. Never really watched the NBA anyway.
