GAB Confirms All Republican Wisconsin State Senators Recalled

The GAB voted unanimously today to verify the recall petitions of the four targeted Republican Senators: Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau, Pam Galloway of Wausau, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls and Van Wanggaard of Racine. There just weren't enough valid challenges from the Senators without finding any fraudulent signatures.

As for Walker's out-of-state pals at Verify the Recall, GAB attorney Mike Haas said, "Their data entry has been seriously flawed" and is not accurate enough to rely on.

As for Walker's recall, "It is now a mathematical certainty that the recall petition of Governor Walker is sufficient," said Jeremy Levinson, attorney for the recall committees. The GAB has until March 19 to rule on Walker and Kleefisch's recall, but they will be asking to extend the deadline to March 30. However, the extension might not be granted, because according to Levinson the GAB is only required to determine sufficiency. Which makes sense, why does Walker want to make taxpayers pay to have over a million signatures checked when we only need 540,208?

All of the recall elections will likely be held on June 5 with primaries on May 8.

  1. The loud mouth Fitzgerald happens to be my mothers neighbor in Juneau. Who knew such a vile character would darken her door when she moved to a beautiful area like Dodge county. For more about the women responsible for the recall effort to oust Scott Fitzgerald:
