MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - If a state elections official has his way, outside groups would not be able to challenge improper recall petitions that they see on-line. Kevin Kennedy says he’ll ask the Government Accountability Board tomorrow to strike only those signatures that the board’s staff finds faulty – or those brought to the agency by the petition circulators or the targets of the petitions. There are said to be efforts taking place throughout the country to check the validity of the estimated one-point-nine million recall signatures against Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and four GOP senators. If the board approves Kennedy’s recommendation, the outside groups might have to take its questionable signatures to the recall targets in order to challenge them. But time is running out. Senators Scott Fitzgerald, Pam Galloway, Van Wanggaard, and Terry Moulton have until Thursday to file challenges with the Accountability Board. The Walker campaign has until February 27th to challenge signatures. And Kleefisch’s camp has until March fifth to do the same.
