Oh, that ....wellll ...
In another article, that I can’t find right now, an Election Official said the GOP’s candidates will more than likely stay on the ballot. You can’t keep someone from running because of their “past” Party affiliation.
In other words, most democrat voters are so stupid they couldn't win a game of chess against a box of rocks.
Gee....what’s the problem? The RAT party has been sending their people to run as Republicans for years. Just look at the examples. Snowe. Collins. Graham. McCain. McConnell. Murkowski. Romney. And more.
Hey Dems, you reap what you sow! How many fake ‘Tea Party’ candidates have you placed on ballots? I rest my case!
Someone explain to me how this differs in substance to an "open" primary, where Democrats get to choose MY Republican candidate?
The Dems claim that is perfectly fair, no disenfranchisement of Republican voters.
Something coming back to bite the Socialist election thieves on the a$$?
I thought this came up last year and it was pointed out that recall primaries are NOT partisan primaries?
After all, a non-partisan primary is really the only thing that makes sense for a proper recall. Recalls are not meant to be a “do-over” when the losing party is upset that they lost, but rather a mechanism to get rid of an elected official who is doing something wrong, often (but not necessarily) criminal. It makes no sense to limit the voters to the party they rejected last time, or a “wrong doer” incumbent.
I’m pretty sure that’s why most states run their recalls the other way around — vote on whether or not the incumbent should be removed, then you decide on who will replace.
Liberals run in the GOP all the time, from Bloomberg, to Romney to David Duke
brilliant....elongate the process...I think there is no limit to the amount of money Walker can raise in defense of his recall.
Doesn’t the Progressive macho-man who cries foul want to cry foul about Mickey Mouse’s signature being declared as valid on recall petitions?
(The sound of crickets chirping when some fraudulent signatures were brought to light a while back.)
It’s an absurd complaint, because anybody can join any political party they want. If republicans want to try to make the democratic party conservative, by running for office as democrats, nothing can stop them.
The democratic party is free to run ads claiming that these candidates don’t meet their standards. But lets face it, if we could kick people out of elections because they weren’t in tune with the party, we wouldn’t have to have primaries.
The recall election process actually has a severe flaw — the opposition party gets to run a primary to pick a candidate, but the party of the person in power doesn’t — they are stuck with the candidate in office already. So there’s no way a court would deny other republicans the right to try to run for the office.
Wisconsin Dems try to disqualify Repubicans running as Democrats ping
FReep Mail me if you want to be on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
My first thought exactly. I love it that there are at least some Republicans in this country who take joy in rubbing the Democrats' diapers in their faces, just like they deserve.
LOL, I love it when Republicans do things like this.
There is no faking. People can run for office under any party they want.
