MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The head of the Wisconsin state elections board charged with reviewing about 1.9 million signatures seeking to recall Gov. Scott Walker and five others says verification work done by outside tea party groups should not be considered.
The Government Accountability Board is in the process of checking whether there are enough signatures on the petitions to order recall elections against Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican state senators.
Board head Kevin Kennedy says in a memo Monday that GAB staff believe only information they develop or that is given to them by petition circulators or the targeted office holders should be used to determine the validity of the signatures.
The board was to discuss the issue at its meeting Tuesday.
