Approximately 540,000 signatures were required to initiate a recall of Governor Scott Walker, and nearly twice that many were collected.

In total, the number of signatures collected for recalling the governor is roughly 46% of the number of all votes cast in the 2010 gubernatorial election. Scott Walker won the race with 1,128,941 out of 2,160,832 total votes.

Needless to say, this is unprecedented.

    If Walker is recalled, other republican governors will be scared shitless to try these shenanigans again.

      Not Michigan’s governor. But he seems to be smarter than Walker, and a much more determined fascist type.

      Not every state allows recalls.
