How's The Recall Efforts Going!
Activists pushing to recall Governor Scott Walker say they have collected more than 300 thousand signatures for the effort in just 12 days. And it looks as though Reid Magney with the Government Accountability Board and his staff will have their work cut out for them verifying all of the petitions. And when it comes time to do that.....Magney says.......
To trigger a recall election, Walker's opponents, coordinated by the group United Wisconsin, need to collect just over 540 thousand valid signatures by January 17th, which is 60 days after the campaign launched. Organizers said they are aiming for 6-700 thousand signatures.
