Wisconsin: Judge rules no extra time for Walker review
The Judge noted that Walker's campaign has pretty much acknowledged that it will not be able to knock out enough signatures. A big part of the reason for Walker's tactics is to raise more money. I imagine that the campaign wants to knock down that signature figure as much as possible. Politically, it looks better to have a lower number out there (much as it looked better to claim that one million people signed the petition). Also, if they can show some bad signatures, ala the Bugs Bunny, it plays to the "the other side is not playing fair" argument.
