Suddenly, Statistics in the Recall is in the News

I don't know that I can take credit for this, but this morning Phil Scarr at Blogging Blue points me to an article at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Analysis: Invalid signatures likely not enough to halt Walker recall

This seems to be just what I suggested in my previous post, two days ago. Whether or not I had the idea first, I applaud the effort.

[Edit: Fixed a link. I originally linked to a different but related post by Phil.]


  1. Credit would be cool, but I think this might be one of those situations where the second person to publish gets all the credit. ;-)

    [ORIGINAL POST EDIT: I corrected a link. ]

  2. Ugh statistics! Damned lies!

    Best always,

    1. Yes, I get that a lot. I consider it a professional hazard.
