Remember my post about this turning into a Clown Car, with 14 candidates on the primary ballot for Governor?
Now, pay attention. This is now so convulted that I should draw up a flow chart or something.
Among these candidates are Republicans running in the Democrat primaries and vice versa. And Republicans voting on Democrat ballots and vice versa.
Enter Arthur Kohl-Riggs, running in the Republican primary against Scott Walker, who until just recently was serving pizza at a Children’s Museum. He’s a ‘progressive Republican’.
His mission? To force Republicans to vote for Scott Walker on the Republican ballot so they don’t cross over and interfere in the Democrat primary selecting the weakest candidate to face the Governor in the recall.
As you may know, the Governor’s is not the only recall vote under way. The Republican Lt. Governor and 3 remaining Republican Senators are also facing recalls. And the Republicans are running their own ‘protest candidates’ on Democratic ballots so that every race has a primary challenge, otherwise the general election in each race could be moved up to the date of the primary date.
In other words, the May 8th vote could have been a primary for some races and a general for others.
Oh. And to keep it interesting, in Wisconsin you don’t need to register by party, so apparently you can ask for the Republican ballot for Governor, the Democratic ballot for Lt. Governor, and the Republican ballot for state Senate.
It’s official. Wisconsin is in complete chaos thanks to the Democratic Party.
Read this article from the Waukesha Patch, that delves into the whole messy matter if you dare.
And if you think Wisconsin is the only former-blue-state-gone-red in the grips of raving lunacy, you would be wrong. Michigan Democrats are engineering a recall movement against Governor Rick Snyder.
Hell hath no fury like Democrats scorned.
