Lambeau Field will not host any more playoff games this season. It can serve to host a great example of the number of people who signed recall petitions by imagining the oval stadium as a huge horse collar.
Knowing that Lambeau Field’s current capacity is 73,128 we can use the oval horse collar to help visualize the number of people who signed recall petitions.
When hearing numbers like 20,000 signatures or 800,000 signatures, I have a difficult time understanding what those numbers mean in terms of the actions and effect of real human beings. When Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate, made his initial announcements of recall progress a few weeks ago, he said that the 507,000 signatures collected at that time, would be the equivalent of filling Lambeau Field 7 times. That helped me get my mind around the mass of people who were opposed to the performance of Scott Walker and Kleefisch. I know the sound of 73,000 Boos.
One Lambeau Horse Collar equals about 70,000 signatures. We know that Walker already has earned 7 horse collars. The totals will be updated throughout the day.
845,000 – 12 Horse Collars!
The number of people who want Rebecca Kleefisch out of office would fill Lambeau Stadium 12 times!
A few weeks ago, she released an ad warning people of the expense of signing a recall petition.
If you use Rebecca’s own math and divide the $117 million in Walker corporate tax give away by the total number of votes cast in his 2010 election or 2,160,832 you arrive at a whole different story. Walker and Kleefisch gave 117,000 million in tax breaks to the wealthy, while 2,160,832 people voted in the 2010 election. So, by her own math, a signature on the current recall election, is not costing anything at all. In fact each signer is being paid about 60 dollars!
Just think for every signature you get on a Walker/Kleefisch recall petition you are returning about $60 to the working families of Wisconsin!
Kleefisch Alter Voice Speaks
1/3rd Horse Collar
This is a Wisconsin miracle. Few people thought it was possible to collect the minimum amount of signatures to trigger a recall election of Speaker Scott Fitzgerald. Lori Compass turned her home and her life into a Recall Fitzgerald Office. A remarkable and inspiring 1/3 horse collar!
Scott Walker and Scott Fitzgerald Please Watch the Video Above. You are not facing big union organization or out-of-state money. You are facing your constituents. You are hearing the voices of the people of Wisconsin who you failed to listen to over the past long, hard, year.
