Scott Walker Recall Effort

January 25, 2012

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has been under scrutiny due to his leadership role in efforts to limit pay and benefits for state workers. Anti-Walker organizers succeeded, overwhelmingly, in collecting enough signatures required for a recall vote. Interestingly enough, while only 540,208 signatures are required, the opposition delivered 150 boxes of petitions to the state department, with an estimated 1 million total signatures. Nearly equal to the total number of votes Walker earned to get into office.

“An incredible number of Wisconsinites have stood up to be counted and say, ‘We can’t wait for the next election. We absolutely must get Scott Walker out of office right now,’” Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate told POLITICO.
