You know I thought Sarah Palin was a horrible governor, and she was, but this guy really raised the bar.

In a press release, the Recall Dunleavy campaign said that the first day of signature gathering “exceeds expectations” by gathering over 10,000 signatures in nine hours.

The group says that it gathered signatures in about twenty communities.

“One of the biggest stars was the community of Yakutat who garnered signatures from 30% of the registered voter population on the first day at Mallott’s General Store,” Meda DeWitt, the chair of the campaign said in a press release.

The release also says that the campaign raised over $13,000 in small donations in the first 24 hours.

The petition still needs many thousands of signatures but I feel confident that we will get them without too much difficulty. 

Dunleavy is a special kind of asshole and it is well past time for him to go.
