Yes, there is actually a Fungky Van Den Elzen somewhere in the Land of Cheese, and he/she was one of 951,053 Wisconsin residents who signed petitions to recall Walker. 540,208 were needed to trigger the recall.

Other legitimate signatories -- Princess High and Mohammed Ali. Whether Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop signed a petition couldn't immediately be verified.

The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board only discovered four fake names, which is amazing when you consider there were nearly a million petitions submitted. The infamous four -- Adolf Hitler, Mick E. Mous, Donald L. Duck, and I Love Scott Walker Thanks.

More than 30,000 petitions were thrown out by the board because of incomplete addresses, dates, or other problems.
