Webcam set up for Walker recall signature review


MADISON (WKOW) -- State workers processing the petition signatures to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker have an Internet audience.

The Government Accountability Board is live streaming the review process via a webcam. A single camera is focused on employees reviewing and scanning documents.

GAB spokesman Reid Magney says it's the first time the board has set up a webcam, which was donated by a local technology company. Magney says he's not sure how much interest the live feed will generate over the long term, comparing the scanning process to watching paint dry. Initially, employees will work two shifts to handle the volume of signatures.

Petition circulators delivered more than one million signatures Tuesday to try force a recall election for Walker. They also filed recall signatures for Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican senators.
