It looks like Orville Seymer and the folks at CRG, in an attempt to intimidate Milwaukee County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic into voting the way they think she ought to vote on the Milwaukee County budget, are threatening a recall of Sup. Dimitrijevic:
A potential recall effort against Milwaukee County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic was announced Wednesday, hours before the County Board was to consider overriding vetoes to the 2011 budget by County Executive and Governor-elect Scott Walker.
The recall threat was prompted by Dimitrijevic’s support for increases in the new budget over the level proposed by Walker, said Orville Seymer, of Citizens for Responsible Government Network.
It’s worth noting Sup. Dimitrijevic has indicated she is considering a run for County Executive in the coming special election to replace Scott Walker, so it’s no surprise the folks at CRG – who’ve been happy to do Walker’s bidding since they helped him get elected County Executive – are threatening what’s likely to be yet another failed recall effort against a popular elected official in Sup. Dimitrijevic. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the real reason behind the threatened and likely to fail recall effort against Sup. Dimitrijevic is nothing more than an attempt to preemptively weaken her candidacy to the benefit of Scott Walker’s preferred successor, whoever that may be.
