Which is more than $9 Million. $16 million spent, purely out of spite. Call it a $16 milliion dollar temper tantrum. Not that of a two year old, but more like the football player's girlfriend who burns down his mansion. I realize that in today's world, even at the state government level, $16 million seems like little more than a rounding error. But it is, because this isn't the state level, it's the local level.
And as this Fox 11 story points out, local governments didn't budget for this. This is on top of the money spent for last year's recalls. Pile on top of that the tens of millions liberal groups(unions) have spent on last year's State Supreme Court race, those recalls, these recalls and imagine they lose all six races next month. Think of the wasted money all because of an entitlement mentality. And imagine how they'll react if they lose everything.
