On a recent weekday evening, about a dozen people gathered at a small clubhouse on Milwaukee’s east side. These middle aged men and women came to be trained on how to circulate petitions to get the signatures needed to recall Walker. The mere mention Walker’s name sparks a visceral negative reaction among them.
For retired police officer John Harrington, the anger runs deep. He says he opposes the state’s new law requiring voters to show photo ID at the polls.
“The voter ID thing bothered me a whole lot,” he said. “Besides I’ve had a lifelong aversion to anybody that beats up on people. I don’t like bullies. I don’t like bullies with money who have an office.”
And that’s about it. That’s all this is. It’s picking on the weaker kid to make your buddies laugh. Trouble for you is, the weaker kid is the club of the most of us these days, and asHecatesaid last Tuesday when Ohio went down, “We are many. They are few.”
