It’s irrelevant according to John Fund now at the American Spectator. The WI senate is in recess for the year and there will be redistricting that will ensure that Gov. Walker will have a Republican majority in the next session.

There is at least one person desperate enough to give that poor little man a hug, isn’t there?

As a side note: Walker and Kleeficsh better have ramped security after tonight. For their safety. There are a lot of weirdos on the left who would love to be a hero.

The "alerter" had no reason to alert. There was no personal attack nor was he/she calling out the OP.

Yes they are!!!! I was selected to be on one of their gay little juries tonight! (the "Jury" at the DUmp decides if a post or thread can remain in veiw if someone reports it as "offensive".) It is so much fun!

They just don't get it.

It think it’s four. We’re winning all with similar margins, and the Lt. Governor recall, as well. The Lt. Governor has a much smaller margin, though.

What a waste of money.

Actually pure democracy needs to be dead. It's 2 wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner, while a constitutional Republic allows a well armed sheep.

campaign finance documents show Big Labor both inside and outside of Wisconsin pouring just over $7 million into the effort to recall Governor Scott Walker and four GOP state senators. In the 2011 recall campaign combined total spending by unions and progressive groups reached $14.7 million, or just over twice what labor unions alone have managed to raise or spend in what is the opening round of the effort to knock out Governor Walker less than two years into his term.

A Walker victory would be a stunning setback for organized labor.
“If we lose, it’s a shot in the mouth,” said Greg Junemann, president of the Professional and Technical Engineers union and a Milwaukee resident. “We can survive it, but we’ll be reeling.”

What is Wisconsin most special special interest of them all?

Yet in Wisconsin, it seems somewhat difficult to get anyone to refer to government unions as a “special interest.” Unions refer to themselves as “the middle class,” or the “hard-working people” of the state — as if every member of the middle class worked for a state or local government. To the Left, any collection of individuals that uses their own money to influence a public debate is known as an “interest group.” Conversely, if a similar group uses taxpayer money boosted through union dues to do the same thing, it is known as a “grassroots organization.”

Last year, these little mom-and-pop unions spent $25 million in Wisconsin in an attempt to recall six Republican state senators. According to the recent finance reports, unions have spent well over $5 million in the Walker recall so far, and the Democratic primary hasn’t even yet been held. In large part, Walker needs to raise prodigious sums of money to keep up with the union spending that is expected during the general-election campaign prior to June 5.

Not only are unions a special interest, they are what we can call an “enhanced” special interest. It is one thing for private interests to spend their own money on campaigns; if the Sierra Club or NRA want to influence elections, they have to find members, solicit them, and keep them on board.

But public-sector unions have to do none of this. In his report Dues and Deep Pockets: Public-Sector Unions’ Money Machine, Daniel DiSalvo of the Manhattan Institute describes how state laws mandate union participation, thus making dues compulsory. Taxpayers pay taxes to pay for public employees, whose wages are then garnished and sent to union leaders, who spend that money to elect officials that will vote for higher taxes to pay higher wages and hire more union members. Wash, rinse, repeat.

These mandatory dues add up. In 2010, according to DiSalvo, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) reported an income of $211,806,537; the National Education Association (a major teachers’ union) received $397,953,771; and Service Employees International Union received $318,755,793.

I’m sure my sister-in-law and her husband’s reaction was just as bad when they heard. Well not that bad, but close. They live in Dane County, WI and he is a criminal defense attorney. My SIL’s twin is also in WI as a dean at one of the universities.

How my hubby turned out to have the brains to vote conservative I have no idea but I’m glad he did!

The demoRATs & media keep harping on how Scott Walker raised $31 million to fight against the recall.... but last year the unions & dimTurds spent $45 million to recall 6 Repub senators, plus trying to vote in Kloppenberg as WI Supreme Court judge vs David Prosser.

And the estimates I recall reading for the recalls this year were that the unions, (WI state & national unions) had $61 million that they allocated to recall Walker, Kleefisch & the 4 Repub state senators. So in total, I would say between last year & this year, the demoRATs & unions spent $106 million on wasted recall campaigns. I for one, am thankful & overjoyed that we kicked the crap out of the demoRATS & unions.
