GAB staff recommends certifying recall elections against Walker, Kleefisch

Government Accountability Board staff has recommended that the board certify recall elections for Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch at its meeting tomorrow morning.

According to a memo issued to board members today, staff will recommend that the board verify 900,938 signatures against Walker, well ahead of the 540,208 needed to trigger a recall election.

According to GAB release, staff struck 26,114 signatures and found 4,001 duplicate signatures of the 931,053 originally submitted by recall organizers.

Meanwhile, GAB staff is set to recommend verifying 808,990 of the 842,854 signatures originally against Kleefisch; her petitions also had to surpass the 540,208 total.

If the board signs off on the petitions tomorrow, initial elections would be set for May 8. Races requiring primary elections would then hold final recall elections on June 5.

The board is also set to take up tomorrow the certification of elections in four state Senate districts.

The board unanimously verified sufficient signatures against GOP Sens. Scott Fitzgerald, Terry Moulton, Van Wanggaard and Pam Galloway -- who resigned March 16 -- earlier this month, but delayed certifying the petitions in order to make sure they are all held on the same date.
