Wisconsin moved one step closer to a recall election on Monday.

The deadline for Governor Scott Walker to challenge the more than one million signatures gathered to recall him from office came and went on Monday – with the Governor declining to challenge any of the signatures. That means the recall petitions only have one more hurdle to clear before a recall election date is set – and that’s state election officials who have until March 19th to validate the signatures.

Then the stage will officially be set – grassroots activism versus big corporate money. The Koch brothers have already pledged to do all they can to help Walker stay in office – and in a post-Citizens United world – they have a much, much louder voice than ordinary Wisconsinites. But something tells me the millions of working people across Wisconsin who spearheaded this effort won’t let democracy be stolen.

This is great news for the citizens of Wisconsin. Of course, there will always be that percentage of people who hang on to Walker, but with the ground-swell fo support the petitions received, they should be able to successfully recall the Governor. Don't take it for granted, though. Remember what happened with the chief justice there.

N-O-R, Not One Republican, 2012. Pass it on.
