  •  Google Doc spreadsheet to aggregate information (6+ / 0-)

    I've rolled a Public google Spreadsheet where I will begin to aggregate recall information.  Skeletal at this time, but will quickly grow.
     Google Doc Wisconsin Recall

    Permission is set to public so others can view  and download local copies.  I will add edit permissions  to selected contributors.

      •  This online organizing is great. (7+ / 0-)

        There are many there, however, who are not part of a group, or union.  Many "general" Dems (who appreciate the severity of this threat for what it is) and others are there, and many older folks who may not be internet-savvy, beyond email (if that).  

        I hope someone on the ground can coordinate how to get some contact information (simply name, preferred means of contact, and district number) from those legions of fed-up people, in a way that the people will not be leery of.

        That's why I think the "official groups" could ask those in their vicinity (or move through the crowd) to "join them" on the contact list they are compiling for a future recall effort.  This would be the easiest way.  The work would be divided between the union/groups, they would keep the info with their own, until the time came, and people would be more likely to trust them.  PLUS, it would involve contacting only a few group heads, and they would delegate the rest from among their ranks.

        A handful of people up there could do this rather quickly, I think.  Maybe ask Ed Schultz who to contact - he and his producers no doubt know who these people are, by now.

        I've got a feeling that there are enough people to effectively cause recall elections for several (if not all!) of these 8 senators, if they could just be "found", and that rally is a unique, one-time opportunity.

        Hope I'm helping, some.  Were I there, I'd do it!  Please keep us updated... thanks again!
