Last week, a letter writer to the Janesville Gazette thanked another letter writer for supplying names of local residents running for public office who signed the Scott Walker recall petition. The letter writer who I'll refer to only as P.R. of Janesville apparently does not believe U.S. citizens, particularly candidates for public office and media individuals, have the right to redress or petition our government. P.R. went on to say she's "had enough" and will notify sponsors of their programs that these individuals signed the petition.
Another letter writer responded a few days later...
JG Letter Excerpt:
I have seen quite a few of these letters trying to intimidate people who have signed recall petitions. These bring back memories from when I was a child. In Germany, the Jews were forced to wear the Star of David on their clothes so when walking down the street they could be identified.
Maybe the governor could create a similar law that would force all who signed the recall to wear an "I signed the recall" badge. That way it could save you and all the others a lot of time identifying who signed - such as your neighbors, police officers, firefighters, teachers, nurses, people running for office and maybe even some of your friends... -- T.C. Janesville
