Lefty "Appeal" Is Abuse-of-Process

All they really want is to delay the decision, but "discovery" would be nice, too!!

Recall activists who on Thursday were denied a chance to intervene in a lawsuit over procedures for vetting recall signatures said Friday they'd appeal that ruling and are asking a judge for a stay in the lawsuit pending their appeal.

This is nothing more than a delay tactic.

The original suit seeks to clarify the recall law, to wit:  whether the GAB is required to "clean" the petition signatures, or whether it only has to "flag" obvious fakes (e.g. Mickey Mouse) and ignore multiple signatures, which is its current protocol.

Judge Davis denied intervention because the GAB doesn't want it, AND because this is a time-sensitive matter.  In addition, intervention would give the Lefties an opportunity to "discover" Walker campaign memos, records, and correspondence.

IOW, it's both un-necessary (per the GAB) and a fishing expedition.

Abuse of process is another term which could be applied.
