Republicans rigging the recall
As I write, Scott Walker and his rubberstamps in the legislature are taking an ax to the foundations of Wisconsin's democracy to try and protect their own jobs.
Just days before we begin collecting signatures, Scott Walker's fellow Republicans are attempting to add a new requirement that all recall petitions must be notarized.
Scott Walker knows we have the energy and the support needed to recall him now, but rather than letting your voice be heard, he's trying to put up roadblocks to impede the recall process and sully our democracy.
Rest assured: They will NOT stop us.
Make sure your voice is heard by signing our petition to tell Scott Walker and his cronies to stop abusing their power by trying to rig the recall rules in their favor.
Scott Walker and his powerful corporate special interests know that they can't stop our people-powered movement. That's why they are resorting to more dirty tricks and political games in a blatant attempt to hold onto power.
In just 10 months, Scott Walker has done everything he can to deny the rights of Wisconsinites at the ballot box. He passed an undemocratic voter ID bill. He signed into law rules that give himself power over the nonpartisan board that regulates Wisconsin's elections. And now he is trying to change the recall petition process itself for his own benefit.
Show Scott Walker what democracy looks like. Sign our petition to save our democracy now and tell Scott Walker that we'll be recalling him soon so he can longer trample our democratic values.
To top it all off? Scott Walker himself voted for the reforms that were put in place in 1999 that removed the notary requirement.
Sign our petition and forward this email to five of your friends to let them know that we will not let Scott Walker rig the rules to further a political career that has shown such disregard for the rights of Wisconsinites.
Thank you for your support. Together we will recall Scott Walker.
Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
