Wisconsin: Racine Alderman facing petitions over liquor licence fight
Racine Alderman Jim Kaplan is facing a recall over his opposition to a liquor license for a local tavern. The bar eventually got the license, though it has yet to open because it has to get the building in shape.
The leader of the recall effort is related to the bar owners. Kaplan was first elected in 2006. Petitioners need 243 signatures in 60 days, though even this number has to be in question, as it is based on 25% of the votes cast for governor (as I've discussed before, there is a question of whether that is in the 2010 race or the 2012 recall).
