7TH UPDATE: The recall process in WI needs dramatic change

Previously on This Just In…

The update: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorializes today:

It's bad enough that recall fever has dragged Wisconsin into the muck of bitter and ugly political contests such as the kind we saw last summer. Worse is that it's taking attention away from legitimate political fights such as the Republican presidential primary and local contests on April 3. And even worse is that it's contributed to such a poisonous atmosphere in Madison that it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to get the people's work done.

“The state recall process begs for change such as the bill proposed by state Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester), which would have limited recalls to cases of misconduct in office. Vos says he will continue to push for such a bill; we hope he succeeds in getting one passed.”

Even when the paper gets it right, it gets it wrong.

Sure would have loved more editorials like this throughout the past year when recall fever was out of control. The paper’s timing is off. A lot of good this piece does when the legislative session is over.
