Latest poll now says that 58% favor a recall of Gov. Walker in Wisconsin, while Republican support of a recall is up from 7% to 24%.
Petitions started yesterday and requires 540k signatures, a quarter of the ballots cast in the last general election. The aim is 750k.
- The WI Government Accountability Board veryfies the signatures.
- Election is called six weeks after that.
- If there is a contested primary, generel election is four weeks after the primaries.
Some reasoning for the recall:
Scott Walker ran on a moderate platform to create jobs and bring economic stability to Wisconsin. There was nothing in his campaign about outlawing collective bargaining and destroying unions; nothing about privatizing all state services; nothing about giving huge tax breaks to corporations while cutting funding on virtually every state program Wisconsinites have come to depend on.
