The 4th Reich, Part 3
There's not a limited range of reasons the people of Wisconsin can recall their elected and appointed public officials. "Because they want to" is all the reason the state constitution requires. I'm worried about the junta's hijacking of the GAB, though. Ironic to gather enough signatures to recall, only to have Scooter veto it in the end. Jaded? A little. Article XIII, Section 12. Pretty straight language. It's followed by our neanderthal marriage amendment in Section 13, for what it's worth.
The money behind the recall is coming from outside the state, according to Herr Walker during a bill-signing today. So where in Hell did the money that bought his sorry ass into office come from? Pardeeville? And now he's all over the country raising more, including an appearance on Hannity tonight because, you know, Fox is always there for the floundering fascist. I couldn't bring myself to watch, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't at least a URL for donors if not an outright plea for funds.
The smell of all that money is sexy, I'll bet. Walker promises to spend whatever it takes to "get his message out." And whatever's left over he will probably get to keep. Unlimited campaign spending means no accountability or oversight, right? When it's all over, Caribou Barbie can probably give Scott and Tonette a helluva deal on a tour bus.
If anyone actually ever reads this, I'm sorry to have been away for so long. It's been busy, being a public servant in a regime run by people who have no concept what the term means, except in the context of serving themselves.
