How long does it take to pass a Constitutional amendment in Wisconsion?
Advertisements [?]
I don't know much about Wisconsin's constitution, but if there's a lot of popular support for getting Walker out of there FAST, couldn't the people of Wisconsin pass an expedited amendment to their Constitution that discards the one-year waiting period provision for recall elections? It would probably have to specifically state that the amendment is effective as of the last election, so that Walker will be subject to it--but I bet that would be a MUCH faster way to fire his ass than waiting almost two years (1 year waiting period, and then almost another whole year for the election cycle) for the recall.

Has anyone brought this up as a possibility? Even if their constitution takes a while to amend, I doubt if it'll take as long as this recall will. Just tossing around an idea.
