Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board meets tomorrow to decide whether to schedule recalls for Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch. The GAB staff write today that they’ll be “recommending the Board find there are a sufficient number of signatures to order recall elections.”
From the numbers they post, it’s not even close. Recall organizers needed 540,280 valid signatures to put Walker and Kleefisch up for a vote either in May or June, depending on possible primaries. After the GAB review, they appear to have gotten 900,938 for Walker and 808,990 for Kleefisch.
For the record, that works out to a validity rate of just under 97 percent for the Walker recall signatures and 96 percent for recalling Kleefisch.
