    Here is a little civic lesson for you.

    Person employed in the public sector. Public employees are found at all levels of government, from the federal, state, and local levels to special districts. Public employees are elected, appointed, or chosen for the civil service on the basis of merit examinations.

    So to you, a civil service employee and an elected official are the same??

    Really??

    All righty then..........to me they are not.
    She can not be fired until the election.
    Only the voters can fire her.
    Why don't you send a progressive into Brookfield and defeat her??
    Have at it, she will be reelected.

    Sure, recall her in her district.

    You could send Obama to Brookfield and he would get beat by her in an election.


    BTW---There are not 8 Republicans in Wisconsin being recalled.

    The people trying to recall several of the Senators can't get the petition votes.

    Well, here is another civics lesson for you. The County Commissioners can vote to fire her based on her job performance or lack thereof. Here is an example of how it can be done.

    Citing personnel reasons, the Jones County Commission has fired its clerk, dividing the board in a 3-2 vote.
    Chairman Preston Hawkins had the deciding vote. According to Commissioner Larry Childs, Chairman Preston Hawkins and fellow Commissioners Tommy Robinson and Bert Liston terminated Brittain based on job performance.

    See, don't even need a recall.

    Roger-

    Here's a Civics 101 lesson for you. The subject of the discussion is a constitutional officer and is elected. The example you gave in Georgia is hired by the County Board of Commissioners. The Wisconsin clerk can't be fired. I'm not even certain she can be recalled. It would take a close examination of the Wisconsin constitution and statutes to determine this. But...judging from the election results, she wouldn't be recalled anyway.

    As far as that goes, when did rushing to report vote totals to the AP become a "fireable" offense. The fact that a mistake was made the night of the election is insignificant per the law because the report wasn't official.

    A key factor in the whole discussion is....states are different from each other.

    Eric
