As of Sunday morning volunteers for the campaign to recall Sen. Van Wanggaard of the 21st district have collected at least 16,000 petition signatures, more than the 15,500 that would make him eligible for recall. Wanggaard, whose district covers Racine County, is one of four Republican senators targeted for recall this winter … The petitions still have to be sent to Madison, where the Democratic Party will weed out duplicates and incomplete signatures and make the count official, Galleher said.Here's Lori Compas confronted Scott Fitzgerald about his allegations she had been allowing phony names to get through, casting doubt on the legitimacy of the recall and her character, HuffingtonPost:
Meanwhile Lori Compas, who is independently organizing the effort to recall Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald without the official backing of the Democratic Party, said the group hit 9,200 signatures as of last Sunday night. A fresh count for this past week will be available by Monday or Tuesday. Her grassroots effort is aiming for 300 signatures per day, for a total of 18,000. The minimum required to trigger a recall election against the Juneau Republican is 16,792.
The Wausau Daily Herald reports that efforts to recall Sen. Pam Galloway of Wausau have yielded more than 10,000 signatures as of Thursday. To force a recall election, 15,647 signatures are needed. In an e-mail Monday morning, committee head Nancy Tabaka-Stencil said their totals were at roughly 70 percent of the minimum. "No difficulties here other than that she is not very well known," Tabaka-Stencil said. "I'm sure I've met more of her constituents than she has."
