Why Wisconsin Democrats Can’t Lose
Sarah Jones at PoliticusUSA explains. For one thing, it’s so rare to have a recall election, that even getting to this point is a victory.
This victory belongs to the people of Wisconsin, who never gave up. In their long fight, they along with neighboring states (Ohio, Michigan and others) inspired the rest of the nation to fight back. They led the way forward to reclaiming the voices of the people.
And a walk down memory lane is not kind to Walker.
Scott was found guilty of illegal campaigning while in college and the local paper, that had previously been neutral, finally declared Scotty “unfit for Presidency.”
…Wisconsin senate Republicans rammed through Walker’s union busting bill 18-1 to strip Wisconsin public employees of their collective bargaining rights.
Republicans did so in spite of being warned by Democratic assemblyman Minority Leader Peter Barka that they were violating the state’s open meeting law…
“Wisconsin job losses highest in nation for last 12 months, federal report says. The job losses weren’t all public sector. Oh, no. Walker can kill jobs everywhere. Public, private, you name it, Scott Walker can kill it.
And then there’s the John Doe investigation, which surrounds not all of Walker’s unconstitutional ways of governing, but rather the illegal campaign tactics employed by him while County Executive of Milwaukee and while campaigning for governor.
