Posted by: I will get more"Likes"than Scott Walker

"So even as a Republican, Schultz, not Republican leader Scott Fitzgerald, is the most powerful man in the Senate—he is the balance of power in Wisconsin, and if he's interested, he could team with Democrats to form a majority coalition, or even switch parties outright."

Remember Dale Schultz? He was the one Republican Senator in Wisconsin to vote against Governor Scott Walker's anti-worker Budget Repair Bill.

I'm pretty sure this isn't a new tactic. The Hatch Act was signed into law by FDR in 1939 to prevent this kind of thing after all. No, this is just the latest instance of Republicans thinking the laws don't apply to them.

Kevin Kratsch Good letter Jeremy. A step back, catch our breath, and let the Darling felonies play out is good. And Holprin/Wirch we need. We also need to remember, next year is the senate (and assembly?) races, and of course whether or not to go after Walker. But for now, relaxing works. It's been an emotional few months for thousands of people.

Did the GOP Steal the Wisconsin Recall Elections? A True Vote Analysis « Richard Charnin's Blog

Richard Charnin posted to Election Integrity

In a pre-election post, I indicated that only election fraud could keep the Democrats from winning three of the six GOP recall elections. They won two. This post-election analysis indicates that they did much better than that. They may very well have won all six.

Jacqueline Janecke hhmm, obama WON all 6 districts where the recalls took place. stunning nugget richard. i'm guessing we won 5 out of the 6 races. there's too much (economic) pain in wisconsin, rural or not, for people to have continued to support the GOP. thanks for this rc.

Dael V Escher Nusbaum, no votes in nortoriously voting dem areas... 4! "According to the unofficial tally, Nusbaum received no votes in four Kaukauna precincts. That in itself is an anomaly"

Jacqueline Janecke anyone live in kaukauna or nearby??

Dylan Ratigan Rant: Debt Negotiations 'Reckless, Irresponsible And Stupid'

Melody Hopkins
I am RIGHT with him on this rant. I've been saying it for years. Until we get campaign finance reform and get this MONEY out of the hands of politicians, we WILL NOT turn this country around. The banking system is corrupt and the corporations are taking over. Please listen well to Dylan Ratigan. He is on the right track!

Wisconsin’s Warning to Union-Busters
www.nytimes.com
In recall elections, Republicans in Wisconsin paid a price for their anti-union law, even if Democrats had hoped for more.

"Recall elections are extremely difficult to win; only two had succeeded in the state in the last 80 years. The districts lean Republican, and getting people to turn out in an unusual off-year election is always a struggle. Had Democrats won one more district, they would control the Senate, but they were also trying to send a warning to Republican lawmakers around the country who are trying to break public employee unions. In that, they succeeded."
