In the latest salvo surrounding Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's (R) controversial budget plan, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Wednesday endorsed recall efforts against several GOP state senators.
Democrats are targeting eight Republican senators who are eligible to be recalled this year in an effort to take control of the state senate and prevent Walker from passing his agenda. The GOP currently holds a 19-14 majority in the state's upper chamber. Three of the eight would need to be recalled and replaced with a Democrat in a recall election in order to flip control of the state senate.
If we can recall at least three Senators and regain control of the senate, we can end the ugly games Republicans in the legislature have played in the last few days - unplugging phone lines, bolting windows inside the Capitol shut, and withholding the paychecks of Democratic legislators," wrote party chairman Mike Tate.
Is because we didn't when during the regular election a reason for recall?Answer Question

The people have the right to be heard. If they want their reps recalled then so be it. Just like when Darrell Issa and the Reps made Davis their scapegoat and had him recalled so we got stuck with the Governator.
Or is it only ok if Republicans do it?

The democrats; the ones who walked out leaving their constituents without representation in Madison; the people who are refusing to perform the job they were hired to do; those democrats are wanting the republicans to be recalled. This just goes from the ridiculous to the sublime. There is some great metaphor to humans in all of this. I'll just need a great poet to help put it into words. But the irony just screams. The ones who ducked out want the ones who stayed to work recalled. If it wasn't so sad, it would be humorous.
