Quote of the Day - Judge Davis Edition

“Counting the signature of Bugs Bunny is something only a lawyer could make seem OK."
Waukesha County Circuit Judge J. Mac Davis on the decision of  the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board to not check signatures turned in for the recall of Governor Scott Walker.

Minor correction - it was not the DECISION of the WGAB to not check signatures, it was their official policy. The policy states the the opposition group is responsible for identifying possible signatures to challenge. This policy has been used for every recall petition ever brought in the state. Walker's team was able to secure a victory by the judge ruling AGAINST the written law. Personally I think the GAB should be the ones to check the signatures (agreeing with Walker), but I would urge anyone who is against judicial activism to note that a judge just ruled directly against the law as it was on the books. Perhaps legislation would have been a better way to correct this?
