Wisconsin: chickens home to roost?
The union campaign to recall Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin achieved another success today when recall votes were announced for state Senators Dan Kapanke of La Crosse, Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac and Luther Olsen of Ripon. Recall petitions also have been filed for Alberta Darling of River Hills, Shelia Harsdof of River Falls and Robert Cowles of Green Bay, and decisions will be made on those recall campaigns next Tuesday. Democrats need to win three seats to take control of the Wisconsin Senate. Supporters of a recall needed about 15,000 signatures to secure recall elections for each senator. In each case, more than 21,000 signatures were gathered. You can still buy a ‘We Are One’ solidarity badge to show your support to the union campaign in Wisconsin – each badge sold means more money for the campaign for workers’ rights.
