GAB will only consider their own petition review


MADISON (WKOW) -- The head of the Wisconsin state elections board says outside verification of the 1.9 million signatures seeking to recall Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans should not be considered.

The Government Accountability Board is in the process of checking whether there are enough signatures on the petitions to order recall elections. But other groups, like tea party backers, are doing their own review.

GAB head Kevin Kennedy released a statement Monday saying GAB staff believe only information they develop or that is given to them by petition circulators or the targeted office holders should be used to determine the validity of the signatures.

The board was to discuss the issue at its meeting Tuesday.
