Wisc. Recall Moves Forward

Wisconsin recall activists collected hundreds of thousands of signatures more than required for a recall election to take place against Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. Close to 901,000 signatures were submitted on the petition submitted Thursday. Only 540,000 were needed. The Government Accountability Board is expected to vote Friday to certify the recall elections. Only five fake names, 4,000 duplicate names and 26,100 incomplete names were found on the petitions. Wisconsin residents had already collected enough signatures to recall four GOP state senators, as well.
