Walker Recall Effort Off to a Fast Start

MADISON, Wis. (WHBL) - United Wisconsin says it's about one-seventh of the way in getting the signatures it needs to force a recall election against Governor Scott Walker.  The group said during the weekend it obtained over 105-thousand signatures.  It needs 540-thousand valid ones for the vote to take place.  And United Wisconsin has said it would get up to 700-thousand signatures to make sure it has enough good ones. Weekend petitioners could be seen at places with crowds -- the largest being a pro-recall rally on Saturday in Madison, and outside yesterday's Packer-Tampa Bay football game in Green Bay.  Meanwhile, U-W Madison professor Barry Burden says the gap between Wisconsin's two political parties has grown over the last 10-to-15 years into what he called a "poisonous" level.  And he said it's hard to know if it's reversible. But despite things like last week's cyber-attack on the recall organizers' Web site, and the rally outside the private home of the governor's family, U-W Madison professor Dennis Dresang says today's political discourse is not as bad as it's been in the past.  He said he remembers the civil rights violence of the 1960's -- and this year's protests were relatively peaceful. Dresang tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel quote, "We ought to be proud to be Badgers."
