    Mickey Mouse, Adolf Hitler Allowed On Wis. Recall Petitions - Politics News Story - WISN Milwaukee

    I wish some day the left would realize their ends do not justify their means.

    This is LUNACY! The left are so insane about getting Walker out of office they are trying to give their imaginary friends, media idols, voices in their head and dead foreign dictators a chance to vote against their hated political adversary in the form of Scott Walker.

    But what blows me away is that the review board will not strike them WITHOUT CHALLENGE! They'll just accept anything with a WI address!!!

    You realize invalidation is how Barack Obama got his state senate seat, and went on from there. Walker needs to get his people in there and challenge ALL of them they possibly can and catch these asshat liars in their game.

    You almost gotta scratch your head and say WTF. Every democrat elected to state office abandoned their post and fled to another state rather than vote on a bill and they want to recall...who? Republicans?

    state law requires that all signatures be submitted, at which time they can be challenged.......

    yes, walkers should get his people in there and challenge as many as possible......

    just like obama did......

    Exactly, Whitehall. I couldn't believe it. Then they recall the REPUBLICANS! The Democrats in Wisconsin with the help of outside unions reminds me of a backwards country.

    There's nothing in this article about "the left". Indeed, recall petitions have been generated against both Democrats and Republicans in Wisconsin recently. The article describes some of the procedures of Wisconsin's Government Accountability Board. Specifically, when they encounter a suspicious signature they will flag it so that it can be challenged before the final tally of signatures can be made.

    Imagine if it were otherwise and the GAB were allowed to strike signatures they deemed suspicious with no oversight. This would give unaccountable, possibly partisan bureaucrats the power to invalidate petitions with no grounds for appeal. The system in which both sides openly challenge or defend each suspicious signature/ballot is cumbersome but seems necessary (a system seen in the elections of Bush and Franken, for instance).

    Simple question... would those fictitious names have made a difference? Or is just more vomiting from the right?

    What was lunacy was that Walker put himself in the position to be recalled in the first place. Had he stopped with gaining concessions from the unions then this action would not even be taking place.

    But he has a right to be worried. He's not too popular these days......

    Poll shows majority support Walker recall

    Even among REPUBLICANS he's losing support.....

    Walker Recall Poll: Poll numbers show tripled Republican support for Walker recall - WITI

    Yeah, it's gonna be an uphill battle for him............
