Staff with the Government Accountability Board reviewed hundreds of challenges to signatures on recall petitions filed against state Senators Dan Kapanke (R-La Crosse), Randy Hopper (R-Fond du Lac), and Luther Olsen (R-Ripon).
Now, GAB counsel is recommending the board reject most of those, including claims that the petitioners behind the recall efforts failed to properly register with the state.
The challenges to signatures that staff is recommending action on would not be enough to invalidate the recall petitions.
The GAB is expected to meet Monday to take action on the challenges and to decide whether to schedule recall elections for July 12th.
The board will meet later on to decide the remaining six petitions against three Democratic and three other Republican senators.
