Aw, look at this. The citizens of Wisconsin are trying to get their state back. Can they actually do that? I was under the impression that Scott Brown sold it off with a no-return policy…
A total of 540,208 valid signatures, or 25 percent of all of the votes cast in the election that put Walker in office last January, were needed to force a recall election, but organizers had aimed for hundreds of thousands more than the minimum requirement to ensure they met the threshold even if some signatures are disqualified.
The Wisconsin Democratic Party was quick to dub the recall effort — which also targeted Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and a handful of Republican state legislators — the "biggest" in American history and boasted that organizers had gathered a whopping 460,000 extra signatures for the recall of Walker, who infuriated many in his state last year by pushing through a law that ended most collective bargaining rights for many public workers.
You know, that's fine and all, but I don't think that petition will considered legally binding unless at least a third of those signatures are Charles Koch's.
And I'm pretty sure the other two-thirds need to be David Koch's.
