MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Groups working to recall Republican officials have asked an appeals court to block an order denying them permission to join a lawsuit over how the state should verify petition signatures.

Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and the state GOP’s leader filed a lawsuit in Waukesha County last month demanding the Government Accountability Board aggressively review petition signatures. The recall committees wanted to join the lawsuit but a judge refused to allow it.

The committees’ attorney, Jeremy Levinson, asked an appeals court Tuesday to immediately block the judge’s order. Levinson argued the judge’s decision means Republicans can attack the recall process without any opposition from the other side.

Attorney Joe Olson represents the Walker campaign and the state GOP’s executive director. He said the judge got it right the first time.

  1. I would like to see the case law and the statute that caused him to make this ruling? It must be Wis statute 8000000:001 Cash to judges is now legal in Wisconsin. This law was legilated from his bench. Now I can except the GOP`s cash and go on another worldwide vacation. This was the best judge the GOP could buy. Websters dictionary : To change what is norm for personal, political or religous reasons is an act of perversion. Why is this ?? on the bench. This ruling has no rational of the law. It makes this judge exsempt from immunity under the law. This judge could be charged with a crime. If not for double standards they would not have any.

  2. 1. “Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and the state GOP’s leader filed a lawsuit in Waukesha County last month demanding the Government Accountability Board aggressively review petition signatures. The recall committees wanted to join the lawsuit but a judge refused to allow it.”

    The recall petition is not yet in the hands of the GAB and the plaintiffs have presented no evidence that the board will not review the petition as required by law. Where is the case and controversy? The suit is premature and should therefore be dismissed.

    2. The recall committee certainly has standing to intervene. The judge’s reasoning in denying intervention is that such will delay determination of the suit. The recall petition is not due in hand until the 13th. No review of the petition has started and no recall date has been declared. I am at a loss to understand the judge’s reasoning.

  3. If Wisconsin US attorney was a honest honorable person not a Protection Rackeet for his fellow republicans. Walker would be in a federal penn. A federal judge in Milwaukee in 1/2001 ordered Milwaukee county to rehired all the people Walker fired. The judge stated Walker mislead the county board on everything. The judge basicily stated Walker commit a few dozens of crimes and without any doubt abused his power. The judge stated Walker created a FALSE emergency. The judge detailed Walkers crimes. This has cost the state how many millions? Why is US attorney John Vaudruel protecting Walker and allowing him to continue his reign of terror on the seniors, poor, and or future our children. Is Vaudruels agenda protecting his GOP pals more important than our children? John stop your protection rackeet.
