Wisconsin: La Crosse Common Council President Recall petitions tossed out
The attempted recall of La Crosse Common Council president Audrey Kader appears to be over, as the city clerk tossed out 148 of the 252 signatures. Petitioners needed 158 and got 104.
More than 60 percent of the signatures listed's Viterbo University's student union as their residence. These were tossed out (though if they also listed a dorm room, they were counted). Apparently, the clerk also cross checked with voter registration, and was able to certify 36 of the addresses.
