Lil' Scooty's lawyers say the recall process violates his "equal rights" protection under the 14th Amendment, by placing an "undue burden" on him. The burden? Verifying all those signitures calling for his head!

The recall only requires 540,000 sigs. Looks like they'll make it easily.

LOL! Whatver happened to tort reform, Goopers??? "Frivolous lawsuits"???

Lil' Scooty's days are numbered!

Shouldn't the burden be on those trying to recall Walker? Or the board RESPONSIBLE for verifying the signatures, which they have stated THEY WILL NOT DO?

I believe the filthy Democrats started this tradition in 2000 when they couldn't deal with the fact that Algore lost his home state and the election to George Bush.

What an ass. The right wingers are so desperate they are trying everything they can to throw the election. Having Walker thrown out on his rear is going to be a great day for the people of Wisconsin and america

94% of the needed number in the 1st month. Yep, looks like they are going to have lots of problems getting the Recall election under way???

With people signing the petitions 80-100 times each, they should have had 100% of the needed number in the 1st week.

Walker might lose, but even if he does the collective bargaining ban stands. And, demagoguery aside, the Democrats will never repeal it because they know damn well that it's what needed to happen to save the state's finances.
