Walker won't challenge recall on!!?

According to Wispolitics:
Gov. Scott Walker will not challenge any of the signatures filed against him because his campaign did not have enough time to review the more than 150,000 pages filed seeking his recall, a spokeswoman said. Walker faced a deadline today to file challenges after a Dane County judge granted him a 20-day extension beyond the 10 days allotted under state law. Walker also sought an additional two weeks but was turned down.

"We faced an impossible timeline," said Walker spokeswoman Ciara Matthews.

Matthews declined comment when asked if the campaign would appeal the ruling denying additional time beyond the original extension. She said the campaign will rely on the GAB to strike fraudulent signatures instead of filing any challenges.
Sly in the Morning talked with John Nichols about all the possibilities, including moving the recall election along to avoid any possible negative turn in the John Doe investigation:

    My bet on 2pm GAB filing: motion to seek WI Supreme Court jurisdiction for extension request, claiming constitutional issues raised #wiunion
