Thom Hartmann: Let The Recall Begin

Thom plus logo
Wisconsin Democrats are expected to turn in a truckload of signatures today in their recall Governor Scott Walker effort. While the exact number of signatures collected is still uncertain - organizers claim they have collected far more than the needed 540,000 signatures to trigger a recall against both Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch. In fact - the number of actual petitions being turned in today weighs over a ton according Wisconsin Democratic Party officials. This all started because Governor Walker decided to attack working people last year - triggering a national backlash against Conservative anti-union policies that's led to two Republican state senators in Wisconsin being recalled - a radical anti-union law in Ohio being repealed - and now a pending recall election against Walker himself. But don't expect this to be easy - Walker has been out of the state raising money from millionaires and billionaires to keep his job. And this recall election will undoubtedly be the most expensive one ever as those same corporate millionaires and billionaires are determined to win this proxy war against the middle class.
(Do you think they will be recalled? Tell us here.)
