Wisconsin Recall: Told Ya it Wasn’t Over

Wis. Dems File 1st Petition to Recall GOP Senator

In order to recall Republican Senator Dan Kapanke, Democrats needed 15,600 signatures to force a recall election. They turned in 21,700. The people of Wisconsin are pissed off, and they have every right to be. They are pounding the pavement to recall eight GOP senators. They believe they can get six:

The chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is confident that at least six of the eight recall elections of state Senators that the party is seeking will be successful, leading to an unprecedented set of recall elections in the summer or fall.

I’m not surprised at all. Check out one of the ads the Progressive Change Campaign Committee has been running:

Psst. I donated a little to keep it going. You can too.

This is just the beginning.

    This will continue in tit for tatdom, ad infinitum

    Were those signatures from his district, or what? Because if where he lives is bright red, he’s going to win recall in a walk.

        I don’t, Spinny. Tough one.

        La Crosse County 2010 Election Results:

        Registered Voters: 73,019
        Turn Out: 42,790
        Percent: 58.51%

        Straight Republican Votes Cast: 9,476
        Straight Democrat Votes Cast: 9,272


        Scott Walker: 20,754
        Tom Barrett: 20,639

        Kapanke ran for Congress and lost 52% to 44%, so maintained his job as State Senator.

        Frankly, I think he’s toast.

        Close numbers, but I think he’s toast too. Especially since they received more signatures than necessary.

      • Terrance H.

        In my view, it’s because the numbers are close he’s going to lose. Walker and a few other Republicans barely won that district. You cannot believe that every person who voted Republican supports what the Republicans did, because, frankly, nobody really knew Walker was going to go that far.

        Some of the Republican votes may have been angry, left-leaning independents who felt a change was necessary. I don’t know. They support the Republicans attempts to turn the government around, but not at the expense of workers.

        I see things different, of course, but I realize the way by which many view his actions.

        I believe this is the key.

    Yep, even I chipped a few bucks to help remove these rascals.

    Too bad, breaking the backs of the unions in the heart of progressiveville would have been a momentous achievement. I’d vote for Walker for president just for standing up for fiscal responsibility and going toe to toe with the public unions who have held governments hostage for far too long. Just say “no” to union thuggery.

      Hey Dave!

      I hope life is treating you well on your side of the fence. 🙂

      Walker for President? I just threw up in my mouth a little. Haha. Why didn’t he screw all the public sector unions? I’d still hate him, but I’d know he was fair across the board. I guess you have to thank the unions that supported you during your campaign in some way. 😉

      Just say no to the Koch Brothers’ sneaky sneakiness. 😀

      Naah the momentous achievement would be to get the huge corporations like GE and B of A to pay some taxes. Hell, I’d settle for the government not looking out for their interests way more than those of their own citizens.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂
