“At the moment, [Governor Scott] Walker is benefiting from a loophole in Wisconsin election law that allows candidates to raise unlimited funds between the beginning of petition gathering and the deadline for the election board to authorize a recall election. Petition gathering began in November and the election board might not be ready to authorize a recall until March.
Under normal rules, donors are limited to $10,000 contributions and nonaffiliated groups are limited to $43,128.
About 45 percent of the $4.5 million Walker collected during the last two reporting periods originated from outside groups giving $250,000 or more.
WisPolitics.com, an online media outlet in Madison, reported that two contributions totaling $500,000 came from Texas billionaire Bob Terry, who was a major financier of Swift Boat Veterans For Truth, the group known for the attack campaign against Democratic Sen. John Kerry’s presidential bid in 2004.” - Mark Guarino

"Scott Walker has spent his time in office grabbing political power and catering to corporate interests, not fighting for the middle class. Because of his actions, Scott Walker has rendered himself vulnerable to the one tool left for Wisconsin to hold him accountable — his recall."
Mike Tate, Chair the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.  Tate will be on the Ed Schultz Show tonight to talk about the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s decision to throw its weight behind the effort to recall Scott Walker. (via wisconsinforward)
