Today is the day

For all the hoopla and the promise of up to 100% more signatures than needed, I haven’t seen a lot in the way of details as to delivery of those signatures. I guess I’ll spend some time looking into that this morning.

(Oh, in case you have my case of the morning fuzzy brain, I’m talking the Walker recall.)

Of course, it would be a hoot if they didn’t get them in on time. Funny, but not likely. I guess we are to expect the minimum will be met, and we’re looking at a recall, but I’m going to wait to talk about that until after we know for sure.

I’ll update here if I find details until the announcement is made.

A ton and a half of paper! That’s 36 trees plus the water to process, fossil fuels to transport, etc. So much for maintaining that Democrats are the only ones to protect the environment in this state. 😉 And the announcement looks to be 3:00 p.m. today. Still looking to see if there’s a press conference scheduled.

–Look for around 900,000


  1. Are you still going to be a “verifier”?

  2. I’m a little confused about this. The group I signed up with is doing it all from an online arrangement, but there’s another group that met the other night, and I’m not in that one. At least I don’t think I am.

    Sadly, the fact that I’m confused could mean a lot of others are too.

    So yes, if someone gives me information to show up at so and so time for three 12 hour days, I’ll show up to do the data processing. I will not, however, waste my time with political rallies masking as training sessions.

  3. The J-S online headline says over 1 million, but the article doesn’t give any more detail. Figure roughly 1/4-1/3 are invalid, which likely means that there are 650,000-700,000 valid signatures to force the recall.

    It could be a close election. It will be interesting to see how it turns out, both in the primary and general election.

    I wonder if there will be a “split” with Walker winning, but people voting out Kleefisch as a protest?

  4. Holy cow that’s a clever observation, KPOM.
