So the recalls mattered - - which is why Lazich (bottom left) is also trying to burden petitioners with new, notarization requirements as they gather signatures beginning later this week to recall Gov. Scott Walker - - another move that will backfire by adding motivation to organizers dedicated to ousting him.
And to fuel the planning for more Senate recalls in 2012, and other focused campaigns down the road against Republican obstructionists, until Lazich, her cohort and their reactionary agendas - - from Voter ID to environmental giveaways to eliminating collective bargaining - - are driven back in the minority.
This may well produce the title on whatever news stories sum up her career - - "She Helped Recall Scott Walker" - - and add to a legacy heightened by a national shout-out on The Colbert Report for proposing, in the wake of Gov. Walker's revealing and politically damaging phone call with a prankster, that such calls be criminalized.
