MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is urging his supporters to sign a petition in support of his law restricting collective bargaining that a judge last week largely struck down as unconstitutional.
Walker sent an email Thursday to supporters urging them to sign the online petition that derides Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas as an "activist" who "chose to put politics ahead of your votes."
Madison teachers' attorney Vince Powers has criticized Walker for attacking the judge instead of the merits of the decision. He has called on Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to say whether he stands by the statements.
Van Hollen has declined to comment. He asking Colas to put the ruling on hold while it is being appealed.
