Everything you need to know about today’s WI recall filing.
- Democratic Big Labor cronies are submitting recall petitions today to force a recall election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch. They claim to have enough to weather the inevitable challenges.
- This latest exercise in partisan petulance is scheduled to cost the state of Wisconsin 9 million dollars’ worth of taxpayer money, once you factor in all the state- and municipal-level Democratic temper tantrums. And here we thought that getting Democrats out of office would stop them from wasting productive people’s money.
- Governor Walker has already amassed a $5.1 million dollar war chest for this nonsense, and he can raise as much as he darn well pleases. There’s going to be a lot of money poured into these recall elections, by the way; money that the Democrats in particular are going to miss.
- The Democrats don’t have a clue who to run against Walker. (via @VickiMcKenna)
I don’t want to sound too dismissive of this situation, but Wisconsin Democrats spent a ridiculous amount of money last year to buy one, and rent one, state Senate seat. That does not mean that complacency is justified, but it does mean that I can point and laugh with a clear conscience. It’s good for morale to remember that these people talk a bigger game than they can actually play.
