Scott Walker | Wisconsin | Recall | The Daily Caller

December 14, 2011 Signatures of Hitler, Mickey Mouse acceptable on Scott Walker recall petitions

The signatures of Adolf Hitler and Mickey Mouse will be counted in the effort to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, so long as they are properly dated and bear a Wisconsin address.

The Government Accountability Board reviewing the petitions unanimously approved a plan that would allow questionable names to be counted if they are signed within the circulation dates and have a proper address, WISN Milwaukee’s Channel 12 is reporting. According to the ABC affiliate, the suspicious names will be noted as such, but will not be eliminated without a challenge.

“All signatures are given the basic presumption of validity,” said petition reviewer co-team leader Katie Mueller before the board. “So it may not be eliminated due to the fact that this is a valid signature on face value.”
I see that Democrats are getting along just fine without the services of ACORN.

Posted by LaborUnionReport January 6th

Last April, after months of laying siege to the Wisconsin capitol building, unions poured $4.5 million into the state to unseat Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser in an election. Though their efforts ultimately failed, unions did all they could legally and now, it seems, illegally to win at all costs.

In October, Media Trackers uncovered documents exposing three SEIU-affiliated individuals who took advantage of Wisconsin’s lax voter registration rules to register and vote by using a Residence Inn as their address. The individuals, SEIU organizer Todd E. Stoner from Freehold, New Jersey; Clarence Haynes, a SEIU organizer from Florida; as well as Austin Lee Thompson, a left-wing protester employed by an SEIU-affiliated group, all used the Residence Inn in Glendale, Wisconsin as their address.

Now, Milwaukee’s Assistant District Attorney has taken an interest by issuing a search warrant for Clarence Haynes.
Can't wait for the unions to roll into Indiana when our legislature takes up right-to-work legislation. They're so classy.

What about the right to choose to join a union or not? Or the right of non-Democrats to not have part of their paycheck stripped away to support candidates or causes they don't.

I believe there's a place for unions but they seriously need to join the 21st century. The top-heavy, heavy-handed model isn't working in a highly competitive, global market that severely punishes inefficiency and bloated labor costs.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTW) — The Indiana House speaker has called off what would have been the first day of the new legislative session after most House Democrats remained behind closed doors to discuss their response to a "right-to-work" bill pushed by majority Republicans.

Republican Speaker Brian Bosma tried three times Wednesday afternoon to gavel the House into order, but each time no more than five of the 40 Democratic members were on the floor.

Bosma says he'll try to have the House meet on Thursday, but that a Democratic boycott won't lead to Republicans backing off on the "right-to-work" bill.
This is what "union-bought" democracy looks like.

Today in Indiana...
Quote:
Gov. Daniels signs right to work bill

Gov. Mitch Daniels signed "right to work" legislation this afternoon without a ceremony, making Indiana the 23rd state in the nation with the law.

Daniels and other Republican supporters characterized the measure as needed for Indiana to attract jobs.

“The only change will be a positive one," the governor said in a statement released today by his office.

"Indiana will improve still further its recently earned reputation as one of America’s best places to do business, and we will see more jobs and opportunity for our young people and for all those looking for a better life.”

His signature will make Indiana the 23rd state in the nation with the law, and the first in the so-called “rust belt” states of the industrial Midwest and Northeast.
The next few years are going to be booming for U-Haul renters in Ohio, Michigan and our president's home state.

Tomorrow in Wisconsin voters rise up and give a big win to the



GOP.

Sorry students and union workers but looks like Gov. Scott Walker will get the win.
Hopefully it will be a small win,
a margin of 5 or more per cent will be a real set back.

It's heartening to know that a billionaire in far away states can buy an election for a Wisconsin governor.

Dems cry foul early into Election Day; Sen. Taylor demands investigation

With only about four hours into the Election Day voting, members of the Milwaukee Democratic Party claim that calls are going out to voters telling them if they'd signed the recall, they didn't need to vote today.

Meanwhile, State Sen. Lena Taylor, D-Milwaukee, sent a letter to Government Accountability Board Director Kevin Kennedy asking for an investigation into that alleged call and another that claimed the election was Wednesday.

People calling in on the radio in Wisconsin are saying today that voter turn out at some polls is higher than in 2008! That usually means good news for Dems, I hope so anyway. Record number of voters so far!

Did you hear about the robo calls going around last night? Someone put together a robo call in Walker's camp to try and make people confused saying that if they signed the recall petition they didn't need to go vote.
Classy eh?

no one is optimistic about the Dems chances, but we'll see.

i'm wondering why we don't just elect Foster Friess and/or Sheldon Aldelson to the presidency. as billionaires they are entitled to much more free speech than the rest of us.

I do believe public pensions and benefits are a serious problem, they are way out of portion compared to the private sector.

But, this meat cleaver approach does seem a bit too heavy handed, I am not sure how I would vote if I lived in Wisconsin.

Unless you are equally concerned with billionaires like George Soros pumping money into Wisconsin or union protestors being bussed in from other states your objection rings rather hollow.
