Posted on 06/03/2011 3:16:52 PM PDT by Jean S
Madison - A Dane County judge granted state election officials a week to determine whether three Democratic senators should be recalled, but declined to delay recall elections for six Republican senators.
The judge's order means the state Government Accountability Board will have to formally certify the recall elections for July 12 for the six Republicans later Friday. Any recall elections for three Democratic senators would be held a week later, on July 19.

The system is so corrupt it’s beyond redemption.
“Rules for thee but not for me.”
If this wasn’t such a good thread, I’d tell you to stay off of it.
It doesn’t matter this country economics favor the GOP bigtime right now.
Don’t know if they are elected, but they should be adding that judge to the recall list.
Is this the same judge who made th edecision today? The story really doesn't identify him. This is just a pile of bovine excrement. Who is this judge. Who appointed him?
What in the world is that supposed to mean?
That means that it is made up entirely of activist Democrats and brain dead, senile Republicans. s/off
Randy Hopper (Fond du Lac) won by only 163 votes in 2008. I'd call that one at very serious risk.
Alberta Darling (River Hills) won by 1% in 2008, just over 1,000 votes. I'd call that one at serious risk.
Dan Kapake (La Crosse) won reelection by less than 3% in 2008, about 2500 votes, slightly smaller margin than when he took the seat. He ran for congress in 2010 and lost by almost 4%. I'd say there's some risk to this seat.
Sheila Harsdorf (River Falls) won by 12% in 2008, over 11,000 votes. Probably safe.
Rob Cowles (Allouez) won with 99.35% of the vote. I think he's safe.
Luther Olseon (Ripon) won with 99.35% of the vote. I think he's safe too.
Exactly! Why is that? Did we draw Sumi again?
This is terrible reporting by JSOnline. They know who the judge is.
yes, he is ID’d in the story but not till many paragraphs down.
what’s outrageous?? the ruling?? or that once again the GOP takes it lying down????
How in the heck do you know that the WI GOP is taking it "lying down"?
Of course it outrageous but then again, it is expected given it is a libtard judge granting such. =.=
You can’t rely on the past support levels for this election to be indicative of the probable results - the dynamics are completely different here. There is as much energy in the Republican supporters as there is in the Democrats’, perhaps more so.
Obama has a hatred on for this state, and is sending his goon squad to overwhelm us, Scott Walker and Paul Ryan specifically. We’re going to be in this mode for a good long time. Buckle down Wisconsin.
Where? I can’t find the judge’s name in the article.
You cant rely on the past support levels for this election to be indicative of the probable resultsThat's a good point. My mother is an example. Even though she normally votes Republican, she has always voted for her Democrat State Senator (Holperin), because she thought he was a "good man" and that he "cared for his constituents".
However, after seeing Holperin and the other Dems run away last spring, she is absolutely furious at him. She signed the recall petition, and will be voting to have him recalled (assuming some Dane County judge doesn't manage to throw out the recall petitions against the Dems).
I can't believe that my mother is alone in her feelings, but I haven't heard anything in the news about a backlash against the "run and hide" Dems. If they manage to have an honest recall election, I suspect that the Dems won't be happy with the results.
