This should come as a shock to exactly....nobody... The judge selected to hear Governor Walker's assertion the the GAB should discard obviously false names has ruled in the Governor's favor...Waukesha County...huh...who would have figured...This is clearly a judicial end around the explicit purpose of the law which requires the candidate up for recall to sift and filter through the names and addresses in order to challenge the perceived invalid ones.

This is clearly a disappointing ruling and, honestly, I am not sure how this is all going to play out...what with the make up of our illustrious State Supreme Court. The end result seems to be this...Governor Walker, and his ilk, get a free pass with regards to the heavy lifting they should be required to do. Regardless, I am certain that those in the position of vetting petitions on our end will have done a very good job of limiting the type of signatures the Republicans want everyone to believe are rampant...

Either way, the clock is ticking for Scott Walker...

Solidarity everyone!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
