Shame on The Sun for burying the story of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's recall election victory ("Wis. Governor survives recall," June 6). Governor Walker not only won he trounced his opponent by 7 percentage points. Wisconsin voters made a bold statement by recognizing states can no longer afford to subsidize public pensions and perks with taxpayer dollars. If public sector unions want these perks they need to pay for them out of their pockets. No longer can the taxpayers afford to give these luxuries.

Recent letters to the editor misinterpret the results of the historic Wisconsin recall election ("Walker victory a harbinger of November elections," June 8). First, exit polls showed that 60 percent of Gov. Scott Walker's supporters did not feel a recall election is appropriate except for proven misconduct in office; an additional 10 percent did not feel a recall election is ever appropriate. The Wisconsin voters did not necessarily reject "bullying unions" that are "interested in keeping their power," nor did they endorse Mr. Walker's policies.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is something of a celebrity at the Republican National Convention this week, had a message today for the Maryland delegation: Take heart. Walker, who became a hero of the conservative movement after surviving a high-profile recall attempt in June, noted that Republicans in Wisconsin had once been heavily outgunned by Democrats, too. This year, the state is home to the party's vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, and is considered a tossup.

Gov. Martin O'Malleyis going to Wisconsin to assist in the efforts to recall Gov. Scott Walker, but as usual The Sun failed to report his trip on Friday ("O'Malley to stump in Wisconsin for Walker foe," May 30). I guess "Light for All" simply applies to your liberal agenda. Wouldn't it be refreshing to have a governor who could do as much as Mr. Walker has done to turn the state of Wisconsin around in just a few short months? Even better, that the citizens of Maryland could have the same recall provisions that the citizens of Wisconsin enjoy?

Gov. Scott Walker's victory in the recall election is a microcosm of the upcoming presidential election in November ("The lesson of Wisconsin: OK for Obama, terrible for unions," June 6). The people of Wisconsin showed that they are sick and tired of bullying unions. The unions claim to represent workers but in reality they are just interested in keeping their power. They massage the big-spending liberals and keep them in office, and the liberals massage the unions to curry their money and favor.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's victory in Tuesday's recall election doesn't mean President Barack Obama is going to lose his re-election bid - or even that he will lose Wisconsin. But it clearly shows that organized labor is a seriously weakened political force that needs to reinvent itself for its sake and for the nation's. The vote was widely billed as a preliminary skirmish in the November election between Mr. Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, but there is good reason to conclude that its predictive value is low. For starters, exit polling showed that even as voters handed Mr. Walker a convincing 53 percent to 46 percent victory over Milwaukee's Democratic mayor, Tom Barrett, a solid majority of them would have voted for Mr. Obama over Mr. Romney.

For shame. While most of the major newspapers in the world noted Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's victory in the recall election on Wednesday morning, The Sun relegated the article to page 5 ("Wis. Governor survives recall," June 6). It is a major loss for labor, President Barack Obama, Gov.Martin O'Malley, et. al., I am not at all surprised that The Sun would attempt to pass over this victory for fiscal restraint. Further, it demonstrates that The Sun is nothing more than a Democratic community handout and not to be taken seriously.

Really, it is amazing that the victory by Scott Walker was almost ignored by your paper ("The lesson of Wisconsin," June 7), but it is surely a victory for those who understand the choice we must make in November and get rid of the amateur in the White House. What would happen to The Sun today if there was a choice for readers here? It would fold if there was any choice in Maryland for the morning paper. If there was a choice, you may be sure my subscription would lapse today. Mike Sherman

Democrat Tom Barrett's defeat in Wisconsin is also a loss for Gov. Martin O'Malley and his Democratic Governors Association which poured about $3.2 million into the attempt to topple Republican Gov. Scott Walker. O'Malley noted in a statement that Democrats were outspent "ten to one" in Wisconsin. He looked for the silver lining of last night's election results in Wisconsin, saying in a statement that "Republican governors across the country are on notice" and "The people of their states will not tolerate partisan overreach.
