Wisconsin Recall Update

While there's no official word on the signature-gathering effort against Scott Walker (keyword: official), a concurrent effort against state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has, according to organizers, gathered the necessary signatures. This comes on the heels of Fitzgerald claiming that the organizers were given a few too many days, and that the true deadline for signatures against him was today at 5 PM. The organizers have announced their initial victory in relation to his deadline.

Walker's effort, of course, ends in the next few days. The verification process, meanwhile, is scheduled to last 60 days, but is expected to last beyond that. Any final recall elections are currently expected to take place around June, and the Government Accountability Board is hoping to ensure that all recall elections happen on the same day.
