Showdown in Wisconsin. Dems already squealing UPDATE:Walker holding?

If you’re looking for live updates, you can find them over at Powerlineblog

It’s hard to overstate the importance of this recall. Actually the 3rd the Democrats have held since the 2010 election. Never mind we already have a process in place by which voters a can remove an elected official, which depending on the office it’s every two, four, or six years. The unions see their grasp on public funds slipping in all but the bluest of states(no worries Connecticut) and so the fight to get Walker, the Lt Gov found four State Senators.

The young President’s health care plan is so unpopular and economy so bad that were it possible, he would face a recall. But ours is not a parliamentary system, at least it’s not supposed to be.

But have no fear my little mobsters, even if Walker wins the Dems are already screaming foul, setting up a challenge.

With only about four hours into the Election Day voting, members of the Milwaukee Democratic Party claim that calls are going out to voters telling them if they’d signed the recall, they didn’t need to vote today.

Milwaukee County Dem Chair Sachin Chheda said that Walker supporters can’t get through the day without “cheating.”

“This latest lowlife sleaze comes on the heels of countless reports from around the state of various Republican dirty tricks on behalf of Walker,” Chheda said in a statement. “For instance, reports surfaced last weekend that Walker supporters are paying homeowners to post Walker signs on their lawns.”

A state GOP source dismissed the claims, saying it was expected from Dems who have made voter suppression claims part of their playbook.

Meanwhile our good friend John Hayward says there’s plenty of proof the other side is trying to fraud up.

Meanwhile, Fox News spotlights an eyewitness account of organized Democrat vote fraud, delivered on a radio talk show, in which a caller describes “Greyhound-size buses, filled to capacity” with Michigan Democrats, recruited from a labor union and shipped into Wisconsin to illegally vote against Walker. The caller infiltrated one of the buses, and called radio host Chris Plante sotto voce from the road. The spy claimed organizers handed out “a lot of freebies” and fed him lunch, although he didn’t say what he ate, or whether it was prepared by unionized food service technicians.

Make no mistake the public sector unions have a lot at stake here. This stance for fiscal responsibility in state government is spreading nationwide. Expect the public sector unions to keep up the fight

UPDATE:Drudge reporting exit polls show Walker holding seat. But no link yet?

UPDATE 2: Apparently TRS is reporting just no way to verify the call claiming Union cheating. TRS says better to dismiss it for now.

    ‘Tis a fine mornin’!!!!!!
    The teacher union in WI ruined the public perception in unions by their demands and actions.? I am absolutely embarrassed by them.? The did not lose their collective bargaining rights as they’ve screamed.? They should have been ashamed of themselves for NOT paying into their pension nor for paying only 3% into health care costs!!!! CT sets the amount teachers pay into their pension and teachers negotiate with their district regarding what insurance is to be offered and how much we need to pay in to its cost.? We did NOT have dental for years.? Our prescription rider was wonderful until it got to be too much and then we had to accept different co-pays.? That makes sense with the economy.? So, the bargaining they cry about losing CT teachers haven’t had it.? WI teachers will continue to negotiate working conditions, etc.? We do that now.? So, I think they’ve had to come down to reality.? I wish they had shown some integrity and ethics while doing it.? Crybabies.

      Barrett conceded and Walker won by 8 percentage points — more than when he won the election in 2010. Loooooove it.? Gonna be a lot of depressed union teachers in WI today.? Maybe they should spend their time in therapy instead of protesting and defacing public property.

    Let us emphasize that this is a BLUE state, where ?bama won in 2008 (explaining why they are clinging to the “well, some of the poeple that voted for Walker say they favor ?bama over Romney” meme that is being floated around).? It shows that the deep seated dissatisfaction among liberals themselves with the liberal/progressive mode of tax and spend and tax, followed by favors/waivers for friends and supporters specifically exempting them from the programs (pogroms against healthcare?) they inflict on the rest of us.
    It reminds me of the time MA rejected “bilingual education” back in 2002 by (are you sitting down?) about 70%!?? To paraphrase Michelle ?bama, I have never been so proud of my state.? 😉

    Don’t think teachers are stupid,they may have made noise but I’m guessing many of them voted for reality.

    Yeah ricbee and phil !??Right on the pink, tomato nose:
    – You can lead union members to the voting booths in busses.? But you cannot tell whom they actually voted for.?

    Linda Mae says:

    Apparently the Walker exit polls were skewed.? I bet the Obama/Romney ones were as well.? Who wants to tell a union goon that you voted against him/her?? I’m sure there were enough crazy people there.? (some might have been wearing purple.? I know some seiu people and they are really nice – but we haven’t talked politics.)
    Bet the real number is @ 50-50 for R and O with R having a few more supporters.
