Moulton recall organizers turning in signatures

Posted:
MADISON (AP) -

Organizers of the effort to recall freshman Republican state Sen. Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls are turning in more than enough signatures to force an election.

Recall organizers said Tuesday they are submitting more than 21,000 signatures. They said they're still counting.

Organizers need at least 14,958 valid signatures. They said their current count represents 140 percent of the signatures required to force a recall election.

The Government Accountability Board will begin the process of reviewing those signatures and others submitted on petitions to recall three other Republican senators, Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

Republicans hold a narrow 17-16 majority in the Senate. Democrats could take control by picking up one seat.
