Wal Mart Wins, Another Small Town Loses

Recall election results in defeat for Wal-Mart's opponents in Jefferson, WI.

"The city of Jefferson, Wisconsin, provides a textbook example of what happens when a city loses control of its own affairs...The vote was so close that neither side can claim a mandate...David Olsen had the courage to stand up to Wal-Mart..That made him a marked man politically, and the powerful interests he opposes succeeded in taking him out on Tuesday...Just as Wal-Mart was the winner on Tuesday, so Jefferson will be the loser in the long run."
