The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) has recommended that a recall election against Scott Walker and his Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch should proceed.
You knew it was coming. But still – every movement forward on this momentous recall against our dairyland dictator is a glorious thing to witness.
Care for one more moment of pleasure? As for the right wing spin trying to say there was SO much “fraud” – the validity rate of signatures came out to just under 97 percent for the Walker recall and 96 percent for Kleefisch.[from MaddowBlog]
GAB is scheduled to vote tomorrow, Friday March 30, on certifying the election. The primary is slated to be May 8 and the general election would then be slated for June 5.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin elections officials are recommending that a recall election against Gov. Scott Walker proceed.
Staff of the Government Accountability Board say in a memo released Thursday that more than enough signatures were collected on petitions seeking recalls of Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.
The board was scheduled to vote Friday on certifying the election. The primary would be May 8 and the general election would be June 5.
The board has already said enough signatures were collected on petitions seeking the recalls of four Republican state senators. It plans to vote Friday on certifying those elections for the same dates as those against Walker and Kleefisch.
Thursday’s memo says there were 900,938 valid signatures on the Walker petition, far more than the 540,208 needed.
