Wisconsin’s anti-union, anti-middle class, anti-99% governor is about to have his hat handed to him. The people of Wisconsin have just submitted over 1 million signatures to force the recall.
The people needed 540,000 signatures to force the recall. This additional 460,000 appears to be a safe margin.
There is still a very long way to go in terms of getting Walker recalled. A massive amount of cash will again flood into the state from both sides in order to influence the outcome. But the mere fact that there’s already so much support for the recall suggests that despite the Dem failure to take back the Wisconsin state senate last year, there’s still a tremendous amount of grassroots energy on the ground on the Dem side — nearly a year since the fight in Wisconsin first began — in a key swing state in a presidential election year.
Sweeeeeet! How awesome would it be if their over-reaching causes them to lose everything next year?
Governor Snyder, are you watching Wisconsin?
