Most women who dream of getting revenge on their jerky exes never get the chance to reveal publicly exactly how their man done them wrong. The man in today's case is Randy Hopper, a Wisconsin state senator Democrats are targeting for recall in the wake of Gov. Scott Walker's push to curb union power. When activists showed up at Hopper's door Saturday, his wife answered. She informed them that Hopper no longer lives there--he's moved to Madison to live with his 25-year-old mistress.

Hopper's wife said she'd sign the petition to recall her husband, Raw Story's David Ferguson writes. (The family maid already has.) Her name will be among the 56,000 signatures Democrats have collected for the recall--about 45 percent of what they need to force the vote--only two weeks since they filed for the recalls, The Washington Post's Greg Sargent reports. Still,  it's harder to get the last half of signatures than the first, because all the enthusiastic people have signed already.
