Decision Made; GAB Will Post Recall Petitions Online

The Government Accountability Board has announced it is posting all pages of the recall petition targeting Gov. Scott Walker later today.

GAB Director Kevin Kennedy said in a statement that after conducting a balancing test, the board determined that posting the petitions without redactions was in the best public interest, even after some signers raised concerns over privacy.

“While individuals with an interest in vetting these petitions have every right to do so, we expect that they will continue to do so in a respectful, lawful manner," Kennedy said in a statement. "All Wisconsin residents ought to agree that we can ensure the rights of individuals to participate in the political process without endangering their safety or giving up their right to personal security.”
