Scott Walker drones on with the "integrity of the process" lie about recall, like he did about fictitious voter fraud!!!

Like Paul Ryan's condescending performance on ABC News this weekend, Gov. Scott Walker matched Ryan with his sometimes snarky, whiny, sleepy eyed nonchalance over his lawsuit to distract and defang the non-partisan Government Accountability Board. Hey, nothing shakes this guy up I guess.

Supposedly Mickey Mouse has signed to many recall petitions, which by the way, is a fiction created by Republicans to cast another pall over the recall. Any fake names would have been weeded out long before they finally checked by the Walker people. And, it's not the GAB's job, as much as Walker wished it was.

Walker and the Fitzgerald's never once demanded their supporters stop the harassment and misinformation campaign. Not once, and Democrats shouldn't let them forget that. The Walker administration endorsed, through their silence, the intimidation and threats of petition shredding. From TMJ4:

Walker joined TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Daybreak." About the pending lawsuit against the Government Accountability Board for how they say the Walker campaign and supports have to conduct the process of verifying recall petition signatures:
 "We think the integrity of the process - and I think most people, no matter where you stand on a given issue, think that's it's responsible that if the law says only that one signature should count, not multiple signatures from the same person, that's something that the Government Accountability Board should be responsible for, particularly because if people, not only those who have the right to choose the recall petitions, but if someone chooses not to, their right should be protected the same way. "If somebody is allowed to sign like the guy who was reported to have signed 80 times, that means that 79 other people who chose not to sign the petition are essentially having the right not to be compromised."
When asked if such problems would be solved during the process, anyway:
"We have 10 days under the state statutes to look at potentially 600,000 to 700,000 signatures.  I think any reasonable person looks at that and says, 'That's an incredibly difficult task.'  It's one where we're certainly going to play our part, but we think the Government Accountability Board, certainly they're the people that have the expertise.  That's what they do.  That's what they look at.  We're not asking them to do anything biased or favorable.  We're just looking and saying, 'Look at the facts.  Make sure people are applying the law.'
