MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Petitions seeking the recall of Republican Gov. Scott Walker will be posted online as originally planned despite privacy concerns.
The Government Accountability Board announced late Tuesday that it would post the petitions sometime in the evening. The board originally was to post them Monday, but delayed that after concerns were raised about the names and addresses of domestic violence victims being made public through the release.
But board director Kevin Kennedy says attorneys from his staff and the Department of Justice did a thorough analysis of the issue and determined that the names should be posted.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and others advocated earlier Tuesday for the petitions to be made public.
