Board sets three recall elections for July 12 - JSOnline

"Madison - State election officials ordered July 12 recall elections on Monday for three Republican state senators, setting the stage for what could be an unprecedented summer of recall elections.

The Government Accountability Board, which runs state elections, voted unanimously to schedule the recall elections against Sens. Dan Kapanke of LaCrosse, Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac and Luther Olsen of Ripon.

Next week it will consider recall petitions against six other senators. In all, citizens are seeking to recall nine senators - six Republicans and three Democrats - for their stances on the fight over Gov. Scott Walker's plan to greatly limit the ability of public employees to engage in labor negotiations."

There are over 125 comments and are running 2 to 1 (votes) in favor of the dems. If you have the time PLEASE add your voice with a comment or by voting for existing ones... it would be good if we can get control of the comments in this paper for the recall elections....Thanks
