    16 candidates file for Wisconsin recall elections | Appleton Post Crescent | postcrescent.com

    The Republican Party of Wisconsin recruited six people as “protest candidates” — Republicans running as Democrats to force primaries, giving the Republican incumbents an additional month to prepare for a general election.

    Expense of fake Democrats in primaries will top $400,000 - JSOnline

    Madison - A plan by Republicans to run fake Democratic candidates in this summer's recall elections would cost taxpayers upward of $428,000, according to election clerks.

    In one Senate district alone, the cost would top $100,000, interviews with county and municipal clerks show.

    That's OK.
    In the last presidential election Republicans ran fake Republicans for national office.

    Vitter, Craig, and Ensign were before Wiener. Only Wiener didn't break the law.

    You ask "who will win?"--

    the vote already came in with the state wide election for the judge on the Wisconsin supreme court. The unions lost--encumbant Prosser won reelection and this election was virtually considered a mandate on the government workers unions that were broken up.

    Nothing new about it. It is a tried and true method of taking votes away from your opponent. I am sure the Dems are plannning the same thing themselves.

    Tell that to Obama, he is the one that wants him to resign. Along with Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Schartz, and just about every Democrat everywhere.

    You want to know the real difference? Weiner is a complete wiener. He attacks everyone, even his own party, and has no friends anywhere in Washington.
