GAB To Look At Recall Signatures
(AP) The review of signatures submitted seeking a recall election of Gov. Scott Walker will take longer than the 60 days originally planned. The director of the Government Accountability Board which is charged with handling the review said Thursday that it's not clear how long it will take, but it will be more than 60 days.
Board director Kevin Kennedy says more time is needed in order to do a more extensive review of the signatures to look for duplicates and obvious fakes as ordered by a judge last week. Kennedy says the board will proceed with the review next week even if the state decides to seek an appeal. Petition circulators have also sought a stay in the judge's order. Recall petitions are due Tuesday.
