    Just imagine if all of the public money, time and effort dedicated to the "recall election" had been put to some better purpose. Perhaps the first new law passed should be to limit these "recall" elections, to only cases where an actual abuse of power can be proven in court (like elected representatives fleeing to another state to avoid voting to serve their public).

    Actually, it's not a fact that Dems attempted to steal anything.

    It's amazing how all we have to go on this is the magically "Mike" conversation. When proof actually is shown, then present it. Until then, have fun foaming at the mouth.

    If the right were not allowed to make up their own facts, they'd have no argument at all

    The recall process was intended for use when the elected official had broken a law or commited some offense, not to redo a lost election so I couldn't agree with you more.

    No. Impeachment is for offense. Recall is to invoke the lemon law.

    Once again, the right has made up their own facts, and once again, they are wrong.

    But seriously... was there ever any doubt?

    Wisconsin Constitution, Article XIII, Section 12 (as created Nov. 1926 and amended April 1981): Recall of Elective Officers

    The qualified electors of the state, of any congressional, judicial or legislative district or of any county may petition for the recall of any incumbent elective officer after the first year of the term for which the incumbent was elected, by filing a petition with the filing officer with whom the nomination petition to the office in the primary is filed, demanding the recall of the incumbent.

    [...] no law shall be enacted to hamper, restrict or impair the right of recall.

    I never claimed the recall was illegal; I do however think it was misused. If we start having a recall election every time one side or the other loses an election the entire country would be in the chaos Wisconsin has been in. Wisconsin and I imagine other states too need to look at this mess and amend their constitutions to stop this abuse of the process. There is a lesson to be learned here.

    Clearly you don't even understand your own post. That is surprising.

    Another thread about voter fraud after so many times people claiming it never happens. VOTER ID LAWS ARE NEEDED!

    This is what the majority of Wisconsinites clearly want.
