Wisconsin Recall Targets raising money as fast as they can.

<snip>

Most of the lawmakers targeted for recalls are taking advantage of state law that allows them to exceed normal contribution limits when facing removal from office, according to a WisPolitics check of campaign finance reports.

Joint Finance Committee Co-chair Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, leads the way for fundraising among recall targets with $188,226 through March 21. She also spent $15,579 and had $177,863 cash on hand. Her biggest donor was Daniel McKeithan of Tamarack Petroleum, who gave $20,000.

The normal contribution limits for state Senate candidates are $1,000 from an individual or a committee.

Lots of work to do to beat these heavily backed anti-American elected criminals.

Send money."

Is there a web site to contribute at?

3. We got THREE mailings from Darling last week!
All on the theme of standing up for taxpayers. She opened a campaign office several weeks ago. As co-chair of the Joint Finance Committee, she is a bigshot and they don't want to lose her.

5. oh yeah, they're "standing up for taxpayers". And the RWers buy it...
I can't help but think of this:

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight,
Red is gray and yellow white,
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion

Apparently a lot of people are MAD.

13. Personally, I think it will be close, just like many of the original
elections were. Remember, we got spanked in the mid-terms because we were too cocky. Let's not let that happen again.
