MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Government Accountability Board announced late Tuesday that it would make public petitions looking to recall Governor Scott Walker.
Those petitions would be posted online sometime Tuesday evening, officials said.
Initially, the board was going to post them Monday, but after concerns were raised regarding names and addresses of domestic violence victims being made public, officials delayed the action.
On Tuesday, GAB director Kevin Kennedy said the Wisconsin Department of Justice, along with attorneys from his staff, analyzed the issue and determined the names should be posted.
State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen earlier in the day supported the move to publicize the recall petitions.The board agreed with ruling in a Supreme Court case that says unlike an elector’s vote, which is private and confidential, the signing of a recall petition is a public process.
