Another One in the Hopper. Recall papers filed for second WI (R) Senator

MADISON- Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following this morning's report in the Fond du Lac Reporter that petitions to force the recall of Sen. Randy Hopper will be filed today in Madison.

"Randy Hopper, like Dan Kapanke before him, made his choice when he cast his lot with Scott Walker and his extreme power grab. Today, a coalition of Republicans, Democrats and independents took the historic step of calling him to account.

This announcement comes only two days after Wisconsinites turned out en masse, with some precincts posting record turnout rivaling that of the 2008 presidential election, to stand up against Scott Walker and his outrageous assault on Wisconsins working families.

People all over Wisconsin, and the 18th Senate District, tried to make themselves heard in February and March, but Hopper, like Walker, would not listen.


The train keeps rolling here in Wisconsin!

14. Wonder If His Ex Will Help Bring Him Down...
This is the shitstain whose been living with his lobbyist-girfriend who ended up with a cushy state gig. This dude is one of the most embarassing and vulnerable. Great to see they are filing. And there's more on the way.

Drip, Drip, Drip...watch for a new recall and then elections all throughout the summer and into the Fall...Wanker and the Fitzgeralds will continue to be Kochroaches and one by one their power will be sucked away.

This is democracy at work...and it still works very well. But there's still a lot of work to do.

Cheers!

25. Walker hasn't gotten the message via Prosser loss, MAYBE a successful recall or 5 will drive it home
?

:shrug:

If not, losing his recall election outta do the trick.

27. In the special election, the Dem will be said to win by one tenth of one vote
Followed by some overlooked machine votes that tilt it the other way.

Bookmark my words.

28. So is Walker
and the these guys having an "Oh shit" moment yet? I would like to think so, but I personally think most of them are too stupid to see the consequences of their actions.
