Wisconsin releases recall petition names amid safety concerns

(CNN) - Wisconsin released the names of more than 1 million people who signed a recall petition against Gov. Scott Walker, state officials said, despite safety concerns among petition signers.

"In the interest of full transparency, the board has always planned to release copies of recall petitions to anyone who requested them and to post them online," said Kevin Kennedy, director and general counsel.

    Other than our own governor in Florida, Walker has to be the sleaziest criminal to ever be elected in Wisconsin.

    Mr. Walker is totally finished, as he should be. The Koch brothers must now find a new guy to prostitute himself.

    Why not do the Palin thing and paint bulls-eyes on the backs of those who signed the petition? This is like releasing the names of people's choices in a secret vote. Regardless of how you feel about the recall, this is another sickening attempt at intimidation by Walker and his criminal gang.

    Scott, now that you have seen the effect you have on the voters of Wisconsin, why don't you do them a favor and resign.
