A top Walker aide said today the Republican governor won ’ t challenge any of the one million signatures submitted on petitions seeking his recall from office because his campaign staff ran out of time to go through them all.
In this case there were 594 signatures officially submitted. The Sheriff would have been risking 20k for a favorable ruling. As we were there as the signatures were verified, he would have been better off taking the 20k and putting it on a blackjack hand. Better odds for a victory.
