Wisconsin: Petitioners claim that La Crosse Common Council President challenge to petitions is frivolous
Looks like the dispute over the recall of La Crosse Common Council president Audrey Kader isn't ending soon. Kader has challenged the petitions, noting that 60 percent listed a local college's student union and student mailing address as their residential address. Petitioners (a group called Restore La Crosse and apparently is led by the tea party) claim that the challenge is frivolous and that a postal address should be fine. 71 percent of the petitions were signed by students living on Viterbo.
Note that Kader, council president since 2009, won her third straight four-year term in 2011 with no opponent.
