We are just one day away from the historic recall election that could determine the future of our entire country. The stakes could not be higher; simply put, Wisconsin needs Tom Barrett to win this election. On the day before the recall we bring you some breaking news:
Timothy Russell, Scott Walker’s closest aide and good friend snitched on him and confirmed that Walker has been stonewalling prosecutors. As you may recall, Timothy Russell was arrested earlier this year for stealing money from “Operation Freedom,” a program for veterans and families.
This revelation indicates two things and neither look good for Scott Walker. The first, Timothy Russell is now cooperating with prosecutors. The second, Scott Walker is a target of the current John Doe investigation. If Scott Walker were to win the recall election, he would likely be indicted shortly afterward. Scott Walker has remained consistent in his stance that he is not a target of the investigation. He’s been quoted as saying this as recently as yesterday. Of course, denial is a common tactic, and with Wisconsin so divided, some people actually believe it. Even the most blind of conservative sheep, however, should see now that Walker is the target of the investigation.
We have a choice here in Wisconsin. We can continue as a state that disregards laws and values. Or we can move forward, united for Wisconsin’s future. The Lieutenant Governor’s election this year will be equally as important. It seems almost every day we hear something that indicates Walker is soon to be indicted. If Walker were to win, however, the Lieutenant Governor would take his place as Governor. Rebecca Kleefisch would be just as bad as Walker. If Mahlon Mitchell wins, he would become Governor in case the Governor was indicted. There is also more at stake however. With Walker spending a lot of time out-of-state, the Lieutenant Governor takes role as acting Governor when the Governor is away.
The battle, however, all comes down to turnout. In the last couple of weeks, Democracy for America, We Are Wisconsin, and several other groups have had many volunteers knocking on doors and encouraging people to vote. We are also encouraging people to call voters here. Together we can beat Governor John Doe. Together we can fight this takeover of our state and country.
One day longer! One day stronger!
