Wisconsin: Racine Alderman recall qualifies for the ballot
The recall of Alderman Jim Kaplan is moving forward, with the City Clerk certifying the 243 signatures needed for the recall. The issue was Kaplan's opposition to a liquor license for a proposed club.
Note this bizarre behavior by the City Clerk:
City Clerk Janice Johnson-Martin on Wednesday confirmed that signatures collected by a group of people looking to remove the alderman from his Fourth District seat had been certified by her office, with at least the minimum required 243 valid signatures. Asked by The Journal Times how many signatures there were in total, Johnson-Martin refused to provide an answer. “I am busy. I am not going to take time to do that. They have the 243 and that is all I am required to confirm,” she said.
