You can't make this stuff up:
With recall petitions to be filed against Gov. Scott Walker Tuesday, aides said the governor would not be available for an interview because of a busy schedule.

Goal ThermometerWalker is scheduled to hold a fundraiser in New York City in the afternoon hosted by Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, the founder of financial services corporation American International Group, according to a copy of the fund-raising solicitation posted on the website of the New York Daily News.

Walker has repeatedly slammed the influence of out-of-state money in the recall effort against him, and also repeatedly claimed that his "reforms" are helping the Wisconsin economy. So, naturally, on the day that one million recall signatures are filed against him, he is in New York City collecting money from the founder of the Wall Street group that played a key role in crashing the worldwide economy.

Get this guy out of office already. Contribute $6 to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Orange to Blue.

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.
