Want To Stop The Walker Recall Dead In Its Tracks? Flood The Polling Places And Write In "Scott Walker" as Scott Walker's Challenger, Once the Date is Set
Corrected: Not Today; Date of Recall Primary Not Yet Set

Corrected: This is a great idea, but today may not be the day -- although today is a Democratic Primary voting day, a Twitter guy says the recall vote isn't today.

Drew confirms that -- they haven't even certified that a recall will take place yet.

So today isn't the recall-nominee day, and this post is premature and wrong.

But, when date is set, it's a good idea.

Fellow Wisconsinites,

Tuesday, Feb 21 [TODAY] is the democratic primary for the recall of Governor Walker. It is an open primary so anyone with a Wisconsin drivers license or ID can vote in it. If you so agree please go vote and "write in" Scott Walker in the line provided for write in candidates. If he receives enough votes, there won't be a recall because he can't run against himself. It would save the state of Wisconsin the exorbitant election fees. In the neighborhood of $2.3 million. If you agree with this, please pass it on. There is a face-book page and a web site set up to drum up support, and it has been going strong so far. Let's at least try to stop this dead in it's tracks. I know I have to try.

There's still lots of time to do this.

5 This is a dumb move. Do people think the Democrats won't have a fake challenger to Scott Walker in the Republican Primary?

Walker is going to crush whoever his Democratic opponent is (Falk most likely). Why taint what is sure to be a clear victory and definitive message from the citizens of Wisconsin to the union thugs?

I know it's not about sigs, but someone mentioned that Walker is still validating the sigs as if that effort will stop a recall. I was just pointing out that Walker has made it clear that while he will challenge invalid sigs, he has no doubt there are enough valid ones to force a recall.

And the closer we are to a 50/50 nation/state, the more these recalls become random based on who can get time off work to go vote or whatever every 3 months for the next recall election.

The following statement is on behalf of Mike Grebe, Chairman of the Friends of Scott Walker and Brad Courtney, Chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin:

“The Republican Party of Wisconsin along with the Friends of Scott Walker want to address a grassroots effort to write in Governor Walker’s name on the ballot during a Democratic primary election.
Under state statutes, when a recall election is certified against Governor Walker he is automatically placed on the ballot as a Republican. According to Wisconsin Statute 8.03, a candidate cannot represent both parties, therefore making his name invalid in the Democratic primary, despite the number of write-in votes he may receive.
We appreciate the outpouring of support on behalf of Governor Walker and want to thank all the volunteers who have worked so hard to ensure a fair election process. If you haven’t yet volunteered and would like to help, please visit www.scottwalker.org for more information on how to become involved.”

69 There's so much wrong in that email "Chris" sent you it's not even worth mocking for it's complete ineptitude.

For starter's, today isn't any Democratic primary or recall primary in Wisconsin. It's the non-partisan primary and run-offs for local municipal elections for things like mayor, village board, school board and judges.

Secondly, this was already put to rest by both the Wisconsin GOP and the Walker campaign after it got out of control on Facebook. Here's a link from the Freepers to the joint press release commenting on it where both groups lay out the state statutes why such an idea is pointless.

Here's the text anyway:

<blockquote>The following statement is on behalf of Mike Grebe, Chairman of the
Friends of Scott Walker and Brad Courtney, Chairman of the Republican
Party of Wisconsin:

88 Blows my mind how undemocratic democrats are sometimes.

They lost in the leg, so they fled the state to deny quorum. The people wanted X, the democrats said 'no'.

Now, they elected a GOP governor, but that's not OK, so we need to keep having elections until they go democrat, at which point of course we should let him serve his full term.

It's ridiculous, and yes, it's very expensive. And the whole point of the outrage is Walker's budget solutions. They are out of money, and they want the money to keep flowing, and this is just a temper tantrum that again wastes the people's money.

Anyway, I'd be happy to vote Walker for president.

89 i fretted about this all night, will we win the presidency with any of the hopefuls?

I'm becoming convinced that none of our candidates can possibly win the election. However, I am at least somewhat hopeful that the SCOAMT can royally screw up, and therefore lose the election.

If you get the difference.

If we're looking at $4.00+/gal gasoline in August, and real UE of 19%, and Greece still looks like it's circling the drain (or, worse, has actually started going down the pipes), then there's nothing Obama or his "machine" can do to that will win him the election.

On the other hand, if we're "only" looking at $3.50/gal gas, and real UE has dropped to, say, 15%, then I don't think there's much we can do that would beat him, either.

105 If they want to recall Walker, I say let them.

And when their state starts to swirl about the drain from Democrat mismanagement, we can sit on the sidelines and watch, and when someone (preferably a union member) tries to climb out of the swirling mess, a big boot is applied to his head to send him back in.

109 Ok, if we can't write in Walker, how about we instead write in the Lt Governor, Rebecca Kleefisch
That, despite the fact that the simultaneous recall effort against Kleefisch is technically an entirely separate election process, would likely be ruled by the Government "Accountability" Board (which is looking to not only claw back money they see as theirs but looking to save their jobs through a successful recall) as violating the general prohibition against appearing more than once on the same ballot (same section of the statutes that keeps us from putting Walker on both party lines).

113 This has already come up on Ann Althouse's blog. Someone commenting there pointed out that under Wisconsin's election law a candidate can not appear on the general election ballot under two different parties. The result is supposedly:

"Even if a campaign to write-in Walker as the Democratic nominee was successful, the law says that if a candidate is already the nominee of one party for an office, and is also nominated by write-in votes at the primary election to the same office as the candidate of a different party, the candidate does not have a choice, but shall be placed on the ballot for the election under the office and party for which the individual was already a candidate."

Unclear is whether then the next candidate in line gets the party nomination instead. But I'm betting it would go to court and the Dems would argue they have to have a candidate and that would be the solution.

Seems to me there are better uses of everyone's time than trying to push this campaign.
