Well, today was the day that recall organizers had to turn in their signatures in the recall of Scott Walker. They originally planned to turn in around 720,000 to make sure they got the required 540,000ish to force the recall election. They turned in approximately 1 million today.
You don't have to be from Wisconsin to appreciate the magnitude of this event considering that only twice in American history have elected governors been defeated in recall elections. From this point the GAB will review the validity of all of the signatures, a process that will likely take several months. That means that we probably won't see the election take place until around June.
Oh, and where is Walker this fine day? Oh, over on the East Coast at a $2500 a plate fundraiser.
