Governor Walker of Wisconsin and four of his supporters won recall elections rather handily last week. I found it interesting that Yahoo News called his 53 percent to 46 percent margin of victory a narrow victory! In fact, this victory could even be considered a landslide, because the victory was by a larger margin than Walker's win in his original election in 2010. It is clearly a mandate by the people of Wisconsin.

Senator Bob Menendez will soon be indicted on corruption and obstruction of justice charges stemming from his relationship with Salomon Melgen, a West Palm Beach eye doctor. Melgen thought he could get away with Medicare fraud because he gave Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's Super PAC $700,000 and lavished Menendez with private jet flights to his luxury resort. Given the known public facts, Harry Reid should return Melgen's money to the taxpayers he stole it from and should ask Menendez to resign.
