Walker Recall Effort Underway
The clock is ticking for opponents of Wisconsin’s governor who want to recall him from office.
Organizers of a recall drive started circulating petitions Tuesday morning and they have just 60 days to get more than 540,000 signatures.
The deadline to turn in the signatures is Jan. 17.
The drive is motivated largely over anger related to Walker’s pushing through a law that essentially does away with collective bargaining rights for public workers.
Parties were scheduled overnight and into Tuesday to gather as many signatures as possible. Democratic state Rep. Mark Pocan planned to walk through his downtown Madison neighborhood on Tuesday morning collecting signatures.
