A contributor to Gov. Walker and the state Republican party unexpectedly filed the first papers to recall Gov. Walker. The Democrats are calling it a "dirty Republican ploy," with the Republican Party denied. The man who filed the recall claims it was done on to "fulfill my friend's last request." The reason for the unexpected filing may be Wisconsin's unusual "no-limit" campaign contribution law for recalls. The Democrats were planning to file next week, and Walker will have an extra week and a half to take in contributions.
Presumably, this doesn't start the clock on the Democrats' signature gathering efforts.
