You would think that Wisconsin state officials charged with ensuring the intergrity of elections, including the recall against Gov. Scott Walker, would want to check for duplicate, fictitious and fraudulent signatures on recall petitions.

But no.  As I reported in November, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board decided that it would not check signatures. ...

Democrats in Wisconsin are trying to make Charlie Sykes, the great conservative talk show host and blogger, a campaign issue in the recall.

Sounds like a plan, a stupid plan:

From Charlie’s blog:

Pure political genius if a state political party running against a talk show host and the largest radio station in the...

Governor Scott Walker is facing a massive recall effort mounted by national unions and Democrats looking to take out a leading Republican.  It appears that enough signatures have been gathered to force a recall election in the spring.

Walker will win if Wisconsin voters have a reaction similar to that of reader...

The recall petition drive against Scott Walker has more than a month left to get the required 544,000 signatures.  Organizers assert that over 300,000 already have been collected,

The assumption has to be that they will get enough signatures and that there will be a recall election sometime in the spring.

So says a man interviewed by a Wisconsin news station about his signing petitions to recall Scott Walker 80 times:

Man:“I think I signed about 80 times.”

Wainscott:“You’ve signed 80 petitions, you think?”

Man:“I signed a lot of them for the past two weeks. I’ve been  seeing them at the Grand Avenue Mall....

It’s hard to be shocked at anything anti-Scott Walker protesters do anymore given Wisconsin’s Long Strange Trip.

So as much as I want to be shocked at anti-Walker protesters greeting the Governor with a Nazi salute at a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the State Capitol Rotunda (via Big Gov’t, h/t ...

Apparently not the Governmant Accounting Board according to the McIver Institute (h/t CharlieSykes):

The state board overseeing the potential recall election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker tells the MacIver News Servicethat they will rely upon temporary workers to scrutinize recall petitions and those individuals will not be expected to catch any duplicate signatures...

I think this hits the right theme, sour grapes and Walker doing what’s right.  I would call this preparing the battlefield and...

The recall effort against Scott Walker is being led by United Wisconsin, which bills itself as a non-partisan group.

Of course, that’s nonsense, this a Democratic effort through and through, as reported by WISC Madison:

The recall effort against Scott Walker starts today, and Walker took a preemptive strike on Monday Night Football last night:

This is the right message.  Unlike in Ohio where the collective bargaining reform bill lost in a referendum, in Wisconsin the benefits already are being felt.
