If taxpayers are fightin’ mad about frivolous government spending, then they should really be angry with the Republican Party.
Republicans now oppose recall elections, a political tactic they fiercely pursued by creating professional recall organizations to serve the party nationwide. It caught on when they successfully used the economic collapse created by the energy industry in California to recall Gov. Gray Davis.
In the Republican campaign to stamp out voter fraud and restore confidence in the electoral process, spoiler candidate James Smith is about to commit a complete contradiction.

LaCrosseTribune: Republicans have found a spoiler candidate to challenge Rep. Jennifer Shilling in this summer's recall election, which would force a Democratic primary and extend the campaign by nearly a month.
James Smith, until recently a member of the La Crosse County GOP's executive committee, says he is running as a protest candidate. He said he does not plan on campaigning aggressively but wants to protest the recall process. "I want to bring light on the issue that 22,000 signatures can pretty much overturn an election where even the loser got 40,000 votes," he said Tuesday.
Smith apparently doesn’t think 22,000 angry citizens is enough to tell Republicans they’re not listening.
