Recall Process begins for Seven Wisconsin AWOL “Fleebagger” Lawmakers


Not only do elections have consequences, so do actions, or lack of them …

As reported at JS Online, recall efforts have begun on seven of the 14 AWOL Democrat lawmakers that have fled the state to avoid their job duties of representing the people of Wisconsin. They need 16,000 signatures per senator to force a recall election. The people certainly do not approve of the actions of the lawmaker, this might be interesting and send a clear message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated, no matter what the issue is.

The clock is now running for groups trying to collect enough signatures to trigger recall elections against seven Democratic senators, state officials said today.

Reid Magney, spokesman for the Government Accountability Board, said local groups have officially registered recall committees with his agency to try to recall Sen. Bob Wirch of Kenosha and Jim Holperin of Eagle River.

In addition, a Utah group, American Recall Coalition, has registered electronically to set up recall committees against Wirch and five other Senate Democrats – Lena Taylor of Milwaukee, Mark Miller of Monona, Julie Lassa of Stevens Point, Fred Risser of Madison and Dave Hansen of Green Bay.

      These people are CRIMINALS! They are stealing tax payer dollars by NOT being in the seats they were elected to and sworn to uphold.

      These people are also the typical liberals who live in libtardia. They are cowards! They are an example of the pus*ification of America; run and hide and whine when they don’t get their way!

      Hang em at high noon!

      Just musing about how to go about hiring
      a thief that would steal money from others
      and give it to me. Since Politicians are
      licensed to do it, I’d be glad to pay them
      back with some of that money and give
      them votes as well. Hmmmm….I know…
      I’ll become a Union Boss!

      Regarding “The people certainly do not approve of the actions of the lawmaker“, one thing needs to be clarified. The linked poll results for this sentence are not WI citizens, and therefore do not represent whether or not WI approves of these recall actions.

      As a WI citizen, I can state quite clearly, that my State Senator (and Assembly Representative as well) has fulfilled his duty to represent me and my interests in this matter. That is also the position of our entire family, which includes several more voters.

      It may just be me, but having a Utah firm so involved in a local recall effort is unexpected.

      Finally, a politician who is doing what is in the best interest of his state. Those AWOL “politicians” should be ashamed of themselves. They have a job to do whether they like the outcome or not. As has been said many times, elections have consequences. Whether they like it or not, the Constitution is what guides all of us. Get yourselves back to work and stop making idiots of yourselves. As you can see, Governor Walker will NOT back down and you will be in big trouble if you don’t return. COWARDS, ALL OF YOU. Your careers are over. Bet on it!!
