GAB, DOJ team up to handle recall petition complaints

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state elections’ agency and the Justice Department say they’ll work together to review complaints about the circulating of recall petitions.

Officials from the two departments met Thursday with district attorneys throughout the state to discuss the process for handling those complaints.

They stem from the efforts to recall Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and four state senators.

There have been reports about circulators being intimidated – threats against people refusing to sign petitions – and recall critics destroying petitions.

Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy says all those reports are being taken seriously, and any such complaints should be filed with his department. He said the board and the Justice Department would review the complaints, and refer them to local authorities for possible arrests and prosecution.
