Recall Scott Walker
Democratic Party of Wisconsin - The Official Recall Scott Walker Headquarters
Dear Ray, This is incredible. Last night I went on The Ed Shultz Show to formally announce that on Nov. 15th, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will join with United Wisconsin and other grassroots organizations to begin the recall of Scott Walker on Nov. 15th. In just under 17 hours, over 2100 grassroots supporters have joined our fight for Wisconsin's working families by donating more than $60,000. Recalling Scott Walker is a going to be a task of historic proportions. But I know you are up to it. As we kick off this extraordinary undertaking, please make a donation of $11.15 toward our goal of raising $540,206 by November 15th. Like you, I still get chills when I think about the thousands of people on the Capitol steps in Madison when this all started back in February. It has since become clearer than ever that the people of Wisconsin - the traditions and institutions of our great state - cannot endure any more of Scott Walker's abuses. It is clear that to preserve Wisconsin, we must begin the recall of Walker as soon as possible. Scott Walker was dishonest with the people of Wisconsin when he ran for Governor. Soon after he took office, he proposed a radical change to state law by trying to take away state workers’ right to collective bargaining which he never mentioned once during the campaign. We cannot sit back and allow Scott Walker to continue to dismantle our education system, run our government as an auxiliary of corporate special interests, put our clean air and water at risk, and ignore an unemployment crisis that his policies exacerbated.
