On June 5, 2012, it is likely that Scott Walker will be recalled. His campaign literature is all about the evil outside influences that are working for his defeat. However, it is only the voters of Wisconsin who are eligible to vote in the forthcoming election. They will be contending with all the campaign funds that Scott Walker has raised out-of-state. Here in Utah, I have received several mailed solicitations for funds. I sent him zip. Overwhelmingly the candidate with the most cash wins. At this moment, the contest in Wisconsin is close. The trend, though, is against Scott Walker. We will soon know whether the will of the people is sufficient to defeat all Scott Walker’s cash. His defeat will be a positive sign going forward to November, IMHO.
