Please re-Freep this poll re: Scott Walker
The Portage Daily Register ^ | 6-17-2013

Posted on 06/19/2013 3:15:32 PM PDT by gorush

Should Scott Walker have pulled the nomination of a UW student Regent after learning that the student had signed a recall petition against Walker?


TOPICS: Government; Miscellaneous; News/Current Events; US: Wisconsin
KEYWORDS: chat; vanity
There appears to be an effort from the left to counteract our effort from the right. :{) Fair play, but I sure would like this student to understand that his actions have consequences. One commenter states that he lied on his questionaire...I don't know. It is in my backyard and I'd love your help in adjusting this poll. Please vote "yes". The poll is halfway down on the left. Thanks in advance.

I voted no- Our side shouldn’t take political action for revenge.

If he deserved it then he deserved it.

The poll is actually half way down on the Right.

And YES is winning currently

We hit the poll a couple of days ago and the “yes” vote surged way ahead after initially losing...then it appeared that some were using our tactics against us and that really p***ed me off. This must not stand! :{)

I wonder why Scott Walker really pulled his name?

Policial revenge is what Comie-crats do. And crying racism and bigotry when they get caught trying to get away with something. Standard stuff.

This liberal rag paper said it was because he voted against Walker. I seriously doubt Walker did

No doubt there is certainly more to the story.

Even a liberal would make up some stupid lie excuse and not flat out say its because of revenge.

PS - I voted YES

This poll has been up a couple of days. I guess they’ll leave it up until it gets the result it wants.

7:00 PM It’s now about 320 Yes to 220 No.

Poll to FReep: should Scott Walker have pulled his nominee for UW student regent?

Actions have consequences. This little liar signed the recall petition which cost the taxpayers hundres of thousands of dallars. Then he “forgot”. Then he didn’t even vote. He’s too dumb to be a regent of the University system. Vote Yes.

There were a few reasons from what I understand. First of all, this was a major fail by Walker's staff. It turns out that this young man signed the recall petition against Walker which means that he lied on his application saying the he agreed with the Governor's positions. He later claimed that he only signed it to support his mother who is/was a school teacher. It was also discovered that he only voted once in his entire life, which means, even at his young age, he skipped several elections.

Like I said, Walker's staff really screwed up this time but I think the decision to withdraw his name was justified.

We need to start playing the Dems game. Now this lying POS can’t use this position as a stepping stone to a bigger job in the future.

I voted No. If you can’t handle a difference of opinion from a college kid, then you have no political courage or strength of character or core convictions and I’m tired of those people running our party.

Again, the phrase is 'elections have consequences' ~ and this little idiot signed a petition to recall Governor Walker.

Governor Walker won. The idiot lost.

I voted Yes, since he had not been truthful.

Yes, "our side" should never fight dirty like the enemy. "Our side" should lose again and again with dignity.

That isn’t revenge. It is correcting a mistake especially when the individual did not disclose his signing the petition.

Do we want someone voting on policy that doesn’t even vote?

WE have enough problems in solving state problems, we need good people that will promote conservative problem solving.
