Republican leaders in the Legislature said Monday they would consider introducing legislation this fall to make it harder to recall state officials.
Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) said the upcoming recall elections had launched the state Senate into “full campaign mode” and was slowing down the legislative process.
Of course the more cynical think the GOP are trying to protect themselves with this bill. I doubt the bill would take effect soon.
But this is not new with me. I complained about the ease of recalls long ago, but I can’t find the link .But it might be too hard to correct. One man’s malfeasance is another’s governing style. But it shouldn’t be recallable unless there’s criminal misconduct. Like Anthony Weiner, David Vitter or similar.
Not just because we disagree with their policy.
