"Wisconsin Progressives Collect 9,000 More Signatures Than Needed To Oust Philandering Republican Senator"
Among the signatures may be those of Hopper’s former maid and his estranged wife. (Hopper is reportedly having an affair with a former staffer and now lives outside of his district.) His wife has even indicated that she will contribute to whomever runs against Hopper in a recall election.
Two recent polls have shown that Hopper is trailing a generic Democrat in a recall election. As many as six other GOP state senators could be recalled after their votes to support Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) anti-worker “budget” bill last month.
