There already are efforts to bus supporters of the recall to the polls for early voting.
There’s nothing illegal or unethical about that, so long as only eligible voters vote. But it’s a reminder that some good polling is not a substitute for going to the polls on June 5.
Via WISN (video at the link):
Many groups have organized campaigns to help encourage voters to get to the polls. But a third-party group is already producing results in the form of absentee voters, and they’re producing them by the van-load.
“When it comes to election time, we want to make sure people get out and have their voices heard,” said Mike Lauer, executive director of Wisconsin Jobs Now.
The group is picking up voters from dozens of locations throughout Milwaukee’s north side and central city, and bringing them to vote in the state’s recall election by absentee ballot.
Elsewhere in Wisconsin insanity, the Judicial Ethics Commission, whose special prosecutor signed the Walker recall petition, has demanded the state Supreme Court take up charges against Justice David Prosser. This is complete insanity for reasons explored here dozens of times — if anyone should be brought up on charges it is Justice Ann Walsh Bradley, who charged at Prosser with fist raised and with such evident anger that another Justice had to step in to prevent her from hitting Prosser.
I’m not predicting a win, and fear the worst, but if Walker wins, there’s going to be a victory dance here like nothing ever seen before. The neighbors probably will call the police. Is it possible to set off fireworks on a blog?
It’s not just for Walker, but to bury all the indecencies the decent people of Wisconsin have had to put up with for the past 15 months.
(Suggestions on a victory dance video are being accepted, although it’s hard to beat the incumbent victory dance.)
