Gov. Scott Walker will not challenge any of the signatures filed against him because his campaign did not have enough time to review the more than 150,000 pages filed seeking his recall, a spokeswoman said.
Walker faced a deadline today to file challenges after a Dane County judge granted him a 20-day extension beyond the 10 days allotted under state law. Walker also sought an additional two weeks but was turned down.
As everyone knew, they had no ground to challenge any significant amount of signatures that would cancel the efforts of the grassroots citizens movement who spent their holiday’s gathering signatures. The recall of Governor Scott Walker will proceed, everyone knew it on both sides.
The interesting tidbit here though is the fact that the Walker campaign even knows how insignificant the "Verify the Recall" group is. This anonymous far right wing group has been busy putting up a searchable database of all people who signed the recall petitions online as quickly as possible, while also talking about the incredible amount of fraud. Since the Walker campaign itself, has now distanced themselves from this group, will they disband? what is their purpose?
I predict they will not disband, since their purpose has not been changed. They were formed strictly for intimidation of recall petition signers and that will continue.
Congratulations to the Walker campaign for not partnering with this fringe group!
