The state GOP's lawsuit, filed late last week, claims that Walker's 14th Amendment rights of Equal Protection are violated by putting a burden on his campaign to review and challenge petition signatures within a ten-day period.

(The same procedures were used in a series of state Senate recalls, on both sides of the aisle, earlier this year.)

The state Democrats will file a motion to intervene -- that is, to become a legal party in the case -- some time early this week.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
