Recall Review: Wisconsin, Arizona on pace; Ohio, Washington, Texas and NC

Wisconsin: Four recalls (all Republicans) appear to be certified; Some history of the argument against the recall; Republicans fast-tracking Voter ID laws amid accusations that they are moving fast on a number of fronts (including redistricing) before the recall;

Arizona: Senate Majority Leader Russell Pearce within 500 signatures of advancing to the Ballot according to recall proponents. I'll have something on legislative leaders and recalls soon enough.

Ohio: City of Elyira looks to tighten up recall requirements in wake of failed campaign against mayor.

Washington: Cost of recall of Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer estimated at $350-900K. Investigators have found that he created a hostile workplace and retaliated against employees.

Texas: Campaign to Recall Galveston Mayor starts

North Carolina: Recall in Pender County Bill passes Senate committee

Nebraska: Wymore City Councilman losses recall vote (70-60)
