Dale Schultz, Senator from Wisconsin's 17th Senatorial District will not vote for Gov. Walker's Union busting Koch Bros. abomination.  Not sure how many we need to stop this, but I heard a young lady say "we need two more" on the Qik feed.
Cheers were audible as the announcement was made.  The people are still in the statehouse.
It's official, we need 2 more.  17th District stretches from SW Wisconsin up to Juneau.
Schultz must be a decent guy.

Dale Schultz is a Republican.  The first defection I know about.

All props to brandzel . . . "one of the uprising's 'leaders'"  Lol.  Fox is using his feed.
Power to the people.  You think astro-turfed teabaggers would have the convictions to do this?
All in, we're gonna' win.
Two more!  We need two more, my former Badgers tell us who to call!

My thoughts are these things go better if you actually live in Wisconsin, but if you have the silver tongue and the inclination, then go for it!

Finally, rec list, right on.  Dedicated to my union railroad worker great grandfather, and my union organizing uncle.  There is power in a union.

Last update, I promise:
Wisconsin Calls (1+ / 0-)
If you are a Badger and in their district call, email, write snail mail, knock on the doors of these Republican Senators:
Kapanke, Olsen, Hopper, Darling, Harsdorf, Cowles.  All are in districts carried by Obama and all are eligible for recall.  
Contact information and district maps at
Please if you do not live in Wisconsin do not call, it is counterproductive. - former legislative staffer

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
