WI Judge Gives Extension to Review Recalls Against Democratic Senators

Dane County Circuit Court Judge John Markson last week gave the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board extra time to review three remaining recall petitions against Democratic senators. Originally, the deadline for review expired on June 6. The deadline for review has now been pushed to June 10, 2011. As a result, the earliest the recall elections for the three Senate Democrats would be July 19, a week after all six Senate Republicans’ recall elections will take place.
