 Get behind me
Walker was elected in 2010 with help from supporters of the Tea Party. Speculation over whether or not he was a Kochsucker ended when a reporter from The Buffalo Beast released recordings of a prank call to Walker which involved the reporter pretending to be a Koch brother and talking about potential donations in exchange for political favors of a conservative nature.
 If you go away
Walker came under fire for pushing Wisconsin House Republicans to pass union-busting legislation. After the ensuing protests, Walker and his administration claimed that the protesters had caused $7.5 million in damage and proposed that in the future, Wisconsonites should pay $50 per hour per Capitol Police officer. (After a proper estimation of the damage done, the figure came out to be below $300,000 in just wear and tear). But all is good, because it's not like free speech is important or anything.
 Plastic palace people
Several of Walker's staff were fired and are currently under investigation for embezzlement of a veterans' assistance fund. The investigation has so far uncovered one staffer attempting to engage in sex with a minor.
 Big hurt
Allegations from campaign finance group One Wisconsin Now contend that Walker has neglected to report the names of donors in 1,115 different donations (exceeding USD$100) as required by state campaign finance law.
 On your own again
In April 2012, Walker signed the repeal of Wisconsin's Equal Pay Enforcement Act, with the rationale that money is "more important" to men as breadwinners, which may very well have been true 100 years ago. Too bad if you're a single mother or your husband can't work.
Because of the above offenses against the citizens of Wisconsin, a petition was circulated to recall Walker (that is, to "unelect" him). The group United Wisconsin had until 17 January 2012 to collect enough signatures to force a recall measure on the next election ballot.
On 16 January 2012, United Wisconsin announced that they would be turning in over 720,000 signatures, 33% more than was required (540,028, or one-quarter of the votes cast in the 2010 gubernatorial election) to force a recall election. However, when the actual petition came in, they turned in over one million signatures (almost as many votes as Walker received in the 2010 election), along with signatures to recall Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican state Congresspersons who had supported the controversial legislation (cutting collective bargaining) that prompted the recall.
 Always coming back to you
A recall election took place in Wisconsin on 8 May 2012 for Walker and Kleefisch. Walker won the re-election, the only incumbent in a recall to ever do so. Some wonder whether or not this was because of robocalls being sent to Democrat voters, fraudulently telling them they could stay home if they had already signed the recall petition. Sound familiar?
In typical conservative fashion these days, some of Walker's supporters celebrated by sending threatening letters to those who voted against him.
