Welcome To The Jungle: Lawlessness And Disorder In Wisconsin

16 December 2011 @ 09:36

Do you still have any doubt that that mainstream Leftists want to bring crashing down government at all levels?

Maybe this report will finally persuade you that that is the goal of all Progressives of every stripe.

From Christian Schneider, over at The Corner:

Last week, I pointed out that in the ongoing effort to recall Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, any signature submitted to the state Government Accountability Board would be given the presumption of validity. Furthermore, the Board itself won’t be checking the veracity of signatures — they count until Scott Walker’s campaign challenges them.

This came to a head at a GAB meeting on Tuesday, when election officials admitted names like “Mickey Mouse” and “Adolph Hitler” would count toward the 540,000 signatures needed to force a recall election. That is, unless Walker’s volunteers can enter hundreds of thousands of signatures into a database and challenge the fraudulent ones within the ten-day window. (This, of course, assumes that Adolph Hitler is not actually alive, living in Wisconsin, and supporting the recall Walker effort. If he is, the state has a lot more to worry about than protecting union benefits.)

The Mickey Mouse and Hitler hypotheticals are ridiculous examples meant to demonstrate how screwed up the signature verification process is. But, in fact, it’s much worse than it seems. It’s not easily recognizable names like these that should concern Walker. He needs to worry about the fabricated names that don’t stand out, and therefore will be impossible to challenge in a timely manner.

Say, for instance, you’re an elderly volunteer scanning a list of recall signatures. You see the names “Wyatt Donnelly,” “Freddy Newandyke,” “Frances Buxton,” and “Emil Schuffhausen.”

Those names are, in order: The in Weird Science, the of Mr. Orange in Reservoir Dogs, Pee Wee Herman’s fat in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, and Michael Caine’s in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. But unless Leonard Maltin is scanning those signature sheets on that day, all those names will count.

Also difficult to find will be the people who signed multiple recall petitions. Under the rules, someone can sign as many times as they want, but only one signature will count. It is then incumbent upon the recall target to sift through hundreds of thousands of signatures and challenge the duplicates. One guy boasted of signing up to 80 petitions — meaning, some campaign volunteer will have to play “find the other 79.”

And this is how the unions will attempt to unseat Gov. Scott Walker…

Pure lawlessness.

The Revolution is well underway.

That this story is not generating huge headlines across the nation is a glaring and garish sign of our moral depravity. Merry Bloody Christmas.

    “Moral Depravity”,
    An understatement as we enter into Bloody Christmastide.
    And many of these thugs are actually teaching children and serving the interests of the public.
    Vile and beyond comprehension.

      I wish it were still beyond comprehension, but no longer.

    It’s not generating headlines even here in Wisconsin, even though everyone knows it’s happening. Whenever I see those clowns with the clipboards out collecting signatures, I feel ill. And helpless.

    When is our side going to learn that we need to oppose the left at every level and on every field?

    Gov. Walker is a decent man who is just doing what he promised he would do if he were elected.

      What the unions and their Leftist allies are trying to do is nothing less than overturn a legitimate election. I’m sorry, but to me that’s domestic insurrection.
