Walker Recall Update From Rawstory.Com: Wisconsin Democrats Hit Halfway Mark In Signature Effort Aimed At Anti-Worker/Anti-Union Republican Governor Scott Walker
Organizers working on a campaign to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch are more than half-way to their goal, they announced Monday (November 28th).
United Wisconsin, which teamed up with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, has collected 300,000 signed petitions since November 15th. They need to collect 540,206 valid signatures in a 60-day period to force a Recall Election, or roughly 9,000 signatures per day.
“Scott Walker has taken to the airwaves, supported by millions in corporate cash, to defend his record of job loss and full-scale assault on Wisconsin’s institutions and values,” United Wisconsin Executive Director Meagan Mahaffey said. “But all over Wisconsin, the people are seeing through Walker’s deceptions and are moving to take our State back.”
Organizers are aiming to far exceed the State’s signature requirements, just in case they have any duplicates or other issues that could disqualify some signatures. They’ve collected nearly 1,040 signatures per hour, according to United Wisconsin.
