Democrats: 1 million signatures collected for Wisconsin governor recall

(CNN) - More than a million people have signed a petition to recall Wisconsin's governor, the state's Democratic Party said Tuesday.

That's nearly twice the 540,208 signatures required to seek a recall of first-term Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who drew the ire of labor unions and public school teachers after he stripped public employees of their collective bargaining rights.

    This is Stupid – WHY Didn't those idiots in Wisconsin VOTE !! IF they've got a MILLION signatures, why didn't they VOTE a Million Signatures ?????
    Translation : they didn't CARE enough to Vote, so that's what they've got to put up with, til that idiotic Republican serves his TERM !!! Serves you right, you wisconians – that's what happens when you "don't have time" to VOTE !
    or "it's too cold out" to VOTE, or whatever !

    "The Democrats penchant for fraud when it comes to elections is legendary."
    You're confusing legend with myth. There's not a single, objectively credible piece of evidence to support your nonsense accusation.
    SEVERAL prosecutions and a few active investigations out on the web. Go look them up. I know you know how to use the Google!

    That picture CNN posted fits. He even looks like a loser.

    Truth, give us the active examples you cite. For once, back up your asinine claims with some real facts that don't come from one of your favorite sites, like FAUXNews. Give us names, give us convictions. I know you know how to "use the Google" as you like to say, so actually use it to back your claims up.

    So when the unions bankrupt Wisconsin, do you expect the bankrupt federal government (aka the rest of the country) to bail them out or will all of the taxpayers in Wisconsin see their taxes sky rocket? Or will the state just renege on all of their commitments?

    Funny how you don't hear the libtards in here talk about the REAL PROBLEMS, just personal attacks on the people trying to fix them. That's because libtards only have one solution, take more and more and more, with no end to the taking.

    this is big union money and power. Has nothing to do with what is good for the citizens. This govenor was elected with a strong margin and he will be again if necessary. No wonder jobs are leaving WI with this going on...horrible!

    @sniffit: are you serious? Not a shred of proof that Dems steal elections via fraud? Remember the Richard Daly machine in Chicago? Your selective memory is amazing but considering your left-wing idiocy, not surprising in the least!

    Validate every single one of them. The Democrats penchant for fraud when it comes to elections is legendary.

    EXCUSE ME but after the nonsense when BUSH Stole the 2000 election and surpressed the vote in Ohio in 2004 we know who the pros are at FRAUD
