Former Sen. Feingold will be a professor at Marquette Law School

MILWAUKEE — Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold is moving from politics to the world of academia.

Marquette University Law School says Feingold will be a visiting professor of law starting in the spring semester.

The Milwaukee school said Wednesday that the three-term Democratic senator will teach an elective course called Current Legal Issues: The U.S. Senate. It will be open to upper-level law students.

Feingold’s third term in the Senate ended Monday. His replacement is Ron Johnson, a Republican businessman from Oshkosh set to be sworn in Wednesday.

Feingold earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his law degree from Harvard University. He practiced law for six years with two Wisconsin law firms and also served for 10 years in the state Senate.

    Russ Russ used to come home to Wisconsin a few times a year and set up bogus town hall meetings. He looked really bored -yawning anmd rolling his eyes repeatedly- as constituent after constituent pleaded with him to vote NO on ObamaCare. So Russ Russ goes back to Washington and voted YES on ObamaCare because “almost everybody I talked to in the great state of Wisconsin wants this bill.” If my kid was a student at Marquette I’d be asking for a tuition refund with this idiot now working there.
