Democrats from the La Crosse-area say they now have collected enough signatures to recall Republican Senator Dan Kapanke because of his vote on collective bargaining.More >>
MADISON (WKOW) -- Papers have been filed in an effort to recall a seventh Wisconsin senator over their stances on Gov. Walker's collective bargaining bill.
The committee to recall Robert Wirch of Pleasant Prairie has more than the 13,500 signatures needed. Election officials will have 31 days to review the signatures, unless a court grants an extension.
Organizers also filed recall petitions on Thursday in Madison against Sens. Robert Hansen of Green Bay and Jim Holperin of Conover. Democrats previously filed petitions to recall four Republican senators. They are being targeted for their support or opposition to a bill that would strip most public employees of a majority of their collective bargaining rights.
