A few words about this subject over at Purple Wisconsin:
[The Journal Sentinel], Scott Walker and various legislators - - most of them Republicans - - have said they want the Wisconsin State Constitution amended to make it more difficult to recall an elected official.

That's a big, short-sighted mistake.

Granted the wave of recall elections has been expensive, but democracy has costs and these are well worth the price. Where in a cost-benefit analysis or a balance sheet do you assign a value to your inherited rights?
