Protesters Picket Walker’s Home

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011 at 7:05 am

On Tuesday, hundreds of protesters gathered and subsequently marched several blocks to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s home in Wauwatosa as part of a kickoff to the recall effort against the Governor.

WEAU reports that demonstrators gathered Tuesday afternoon, holding signs such as “Recall Walker” and “Walker: Your Pink Slip Is Coming.” Some protesters were reportedly chanting as they headed toward Walker’s home, where they planned to sign petitions seeking Walker’s recall.

The rally was just one of several taking place statewide. The protesters have begun a 60-day blitz to gather more than half a million signatures to force an election next year. The drive is fueled by anger over Walker’s successful push to take away nearly all public worker collective bargaining rights.

Walker told WTMJ on Tuesday that efforts to target his home show a disregard for people’s families. As we reported yesterday, three other Republican State Senators are also being targeted for recalls.
