    Wisconsin Recall Drive Hits Republican Hurdle

    By DOUGLAS BELKIN

    Wisconsin Democrats handed in one million signatures on Tuesday calling for the recall of GOP Gov. Scott Walker, but Republicans have succeeded in delaying any election, likely improving the governor's chances of surviving the bruising and widely publicized battle.Republicans recently won a court order requiring the Government Accountability Board, which is responsible for counting signatures, to check for duplicate and fake signatures. Board officials said they will accomplish that by entering each name into a database. That painstaking process will put off the election at least until late spring.The election could be further delayed by legal challenges fueled by a separate examination of signatures the Walker camp has pledged to conduct.
    Absolutely approve of this move. Can't wait to see if the Unions managed to get 1,000,000 legit signatures.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Nothing surprises me anymore at what the weasels in Madison are willing to do to usurp the will of the people. They have runamuck.

    This will be a true test as to what weight the will of the people REALLY holds here in America. Now Walker wants to act like Kadaffi and refuse to yeild to the masses. Typical of GOP folks these days. Not surprised MrV approves.

    I don't think the need but 540k so with 1m turned in they probably have enough. But the process described in the article is going to drag this out for some time which may help OR hurt Walker's chances. Of course until 'certified' the opposition will not have to name their candidate which could help/hurt them. We'll see...if they get what they want or what they asked for...

    If only 1/2 of them are legit, that's enough. I bet that less than 1% are phoney and, further, I bet it was a republican who attempted to falsify the recall efforts in their unscrupulous support for Herr Walker.

    Any takers?

    If they are just trying to ensure that all of the signatures are real, then great, if they are just forcing an unnecessarily long procedure to try to slow down the process then they are just letting people know just how badly they need to be recalled.

    if walker is so sure he will survive the recall, why the need for this? why doesnt he tell his people to stand down? have not his cronies been crying about how much the recall is costing the state? doesnt this add to that cost? seems a bit hypocritical to me....he is willing to spend the money when his ass is on the line.

    I don't think he's sure he'll survive the recall. At all. He can't be. Common sense says he's in trouble. This is the political process at work. Let it grind it's way through whatever hoops the election board has in place; let the Republicans conduct their own investigation. Surely if the situation were reversed, the Dems would do the same.

    Consider if he rushed through this process and pressed for a recall election ASAP. The Democrats would be screaming as they need time to choose a candidate and have adequate time to campaign. The recall process is not merely an up/down vote on Walker but simultaneously includes the alternative candidate. It would seem in the Democrats best interest to have more time as they have yet to announce their pick.

    There is generally a state law governing the amount of time between recall votes being handed in and accepted and the actual recall election. He doesn't have the authority to declare the election to be the next weekend. The only thing he could do is slow it down by taking actions such that he has here. If any of the process is slowed down any more than is necessary just to ensure that votes are on the up and up then I think he's just making it more likely that he'll lose the election anyways.

    Listen to your rhetoric, you're disgusting. So you don't like Walker, and you support recalling him early. I get that. Is there any PLACE in American Politics for your over the top hate? No, but that's what you and people like you are reduced too. Emotionalism. Your arguments are not rationale, your position untenable, and the worst part is, you think it's not only proper, but necessary to be so... venomous. You CA, disgust me.

    Can you voice your position without the BS? Of course not, that's hard to do. Much easier to play the angry guy.
