GAB Takes Unfortunate Step To Complete “Democratic Hacks” Status

Sorry, but Kevin Kennedy is still a Doyle Hack.  Always was a Doyle Hack, and remains a Doyle Hack.

This only proves it.

State election officials put off making recall petitions available publicly on Monday after hearing privacy concerns from people who signed them.

The state Government Accountability Board provided copies of the petitions against Gov. Scott Walker to Walker’s campaign on Friday and had said that it planned to post copies of them on its website on Monday. But agency spokesman Reid Magney said the board was holding off on posting them online after hearing concerns about a stalking victim and others who did not want their names released.

Recall organizers say more than 1 million people signed petitions to recall Walker, nearly double the 540,208 valid signatures. The board has until March 19 to determine if enough signatures were filed to force a recall election.

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican state senators also face potential recalls. Copies of the petitions against the senators were posted on the board’s website in January – just as they were last year for six Republicans and three Democrats in the Senate who faced recall.

The accountability board is still electronically scanning copies of the Kleefisch petitions and plans to give them to her campaign later this week.

In the past, the accountability board has treated recall petitions as public records, just as it has the routine nomination petitions that candidates must submit to get on the ballot. Making both types of petitions available has allowed the general public to verify that enough proper signatures were gathered.

My sincere sympathies to those who have concerns over stalkers, but this reasoning is poppycock!  These are public documents, have always been public documents, and nothing should change that precedent.

Also, something tells me GAB wasn’t up in arms when crap like this happened last April.

Over the last few weeks thousands of Wisconsin voters signed a recall petition in Green Bay to recall [Democratic State Senator] Hansen and when voters sign such petitions they must give their address and phone numbers so that authorities can verify the voter’s signature in order to approve the petition. Now it seems that the Wisconsin Democrat Party has gotten hold of these petitions and have begun a telephone harassment campaign against the individual voters that signed the petitions.

The Wisconsin GOP has discovered this disgusting campaign and have found that the Democrats are using a fake phone number and a fake caller ID in order to get voters to answer the phone only to be harangued about having signed the recall petition.

So…if you’re a Democrat willing to harass Republicans in the Green Bay who wanted to recall Dave Hansen, that’s okay by GAB standards.  But if you’re a Democrat who signed a petition to recall Scott Walker, you’re information is suddenly needing Level 7 Clearance from the NSA?

Fascinating.

And a bunch of bull.

Funny little legal ending to the Hansen Recall calls.  Eventually, the Hansen Recall Committee went to court to try to have the calls stopped.  They lost in their bid to get a restraining order placed on the out-of-state telemarketing firm DPW was using.

Didn’t see the ACLU fighting for the Brown Co. GOP last year, did you?
