The Wisconsin recall process has worked nicely for the current regime - - remember that Mark Neumann was involved in trying to recall both Democratic US Senators, and Scott Walker got on the road to the Governorship through a recall election win in 2002 to become Milwaukee County Executive - - but now that Walker is facing great recall energy statewide, West Bend Republican State Senator and Constitutional Rights' Denier Glenn Grothman wants to put a legal crimp in the process.
Recall by citizens in Wisconsin without limitation for cause is a right under the State Constitution.
I'm bold-facing a few words - - those Grothman wants to upend, doing his part over Republican Crybaby Weekend:
Recall of elective officers. SECTION 12. [As created Nov. 1926 and amended April 1981] The qualified electors of the state, of any congressional, judicial or legislative district or of any county may petition for the recall of any incumbent elective officer after the first year of the term for which the incumbent was elected, by filing a petition with the filing officer with whom the nomination petition to the office in the primary is filed, demanding the recall of the incumbent.And the final sub-section:
(7) This section shall be self−executing and mandatory.
Laws may be enacted to facilitate its operation but no law shall be enacted to hamper, restrict or impair the right of recall. [1923 J.R. 73, 1925 J.R. 16, 1925 c. 270, vote Nov. 1926; 1979 J.R. 41, 1981 J.R. 6, vote April 1981]
