3. Wait! Are these
public employees charged with this responsibility? Shouldn't it be in the hands of private enterprise so it could be more efficient?




Don't mind me. Just projecting into the future.

5. Five Republicans so far and three Democrats filed for recall..
I hope there is enough evidence of illegal activity on the Republicans side to Challenge their petitions...If Three Democrats are recalled and five Republicans the Senate would still be under Republicans control...

8. Yes from what I gather they filed the petitions for three Democrats..
The Democrats did hold a news conference though saying many signatures might be suspect.

10. yeah...I knew the Dems had, four of them at this point... no repubs yet though
it would be funny if they couldn't get the signatures needed to recall the dems.
