And what is a fake Democrat? To name one, he is Otto Junkermann , age 82, who once served as a Republican state representative and has returned years later to demonstrate his regurgitated value to his party by pretending to be a Democrat. The reasoning behind all of this is much too complex to deserve a long explanation. But essentially it would delay the recall vote because it would create a Democratic primary. There will be other not-so-phantom Republicans appearing in similar roles to head off possible recalls of six GOP lawmakers who supported the Draconian anti-union law that Gov.Scott Walker supported as a fake device to wipe out the state budget deficit.
The Wisconsin voters have already been alerted to the party's retreat to double lives. So you have to wonder whether the schemers have any concern about being branded as cynics to undermine what's left of the system. No, the schemers aren't concerned.
