    Petition to recall Wisconsin GOP Sen. Sheila Harsdorf to be filed Tuesday

    More than enough signatures have been collected in an effort to recall Republican Wisconsin state Sen. Sheila Harsdorf, organizers announced Monday.

    Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Graeme Zielinski said a petition will be filed with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board on Tuesday. While he didn't have a total signature count Monday afternoon — signatures were still coming in — Zielinski said the number is well over the 15,744 needed.
    4 down and 4 to go, although I believe that only 5 or possibly 6 out of the 8 will end up being recalled. Still, considering the difficulty of recall in Wisconsin, this is a very impressive number - Which goes to show you that, if you are elitist enough to believe that you can do anything you want after being elected, and act like thugs while doing it, you are going to be hammered for it.

    Folks, THIS is what Democracy looks like.

    Elitists? Thugs? Did you say the same thing about Democrats and Obama when they forced the health care law through in similar fashion?

    Democracy is a messy think pal. How did the democrats force the health care law down our throats again? Did they really force it down? Obama campaigned on it for two years!! Walker did not campaign on getting rid of labor rights and collective bargaining rights.. Obamacare was not some surprise legislation like Walkers "budget bill"..

    They have enough signatures to force recall elections on at least 2 democrats (Holperin and Wurch) and i've been hearing that they have enough for a third.

    Based on how the districts of the senators that have enough signatures to force recall elections voted in the recent supreme court race, I would not be at all surprised by a net gain of 1 for republicans.

    There was a big article that came out today (I can't find it at the moment) discussing the recall election chances based on the recent elections in 2011, 2010, 2008 and 2006. They had two democrats and two republicans in the "likely to be recalled" column.

    It was at a big political website, but I can't remeber the name at the moment. If I can find it again, i'll post it.

    The US isn’t a democracy and neither is Wisconsin. They are both constitutional republics.

    I really must laugh at you right now though. You are working overtime defending Hugo (the expropriator) Chavez in another thread as a non-elitist, non-thug “defender of the people” and jump in here to claim that the events that occurred in Wisconsin were the result of elitist thuggary?

    You are always entertaining my friend.

    Here you go. They don't call it "likely to be recalled" they called it "first tier".

    From everything I'm hearing, I would have put Wirch into the first tier with the other two.

    I'll believe it when they've been recalled. The petition is one thing...the vote's another. Ya' know, I'm pretty cynical, and I've read that petition signers were told they were signing to recall the Dem14 (15?) running-shoes guys. It ain't over 'til it's over...
