Wisconsin: Milwaukee County D.A. facing threats of petitions

There is discussion from  both sides of the aisle regarding recalling Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm (here's another piece, examining as well the source of the article, the Wisconsin Reporter).

The conservative group is focused on the John Doe investigations looking at alleged campaign finance abuses in the Scott Walker recall defense campaign. On the other side of the political spectrum, black community leaders are expressing outrage over the failure to file charges following the December 2012 death of Corey Stingley (Stingley attempted to steal alcohol from a convenience store, was stopped and detained by three men, and was dead by the time the police arrived).

Petitioners would need close to 100,000 signatures, which is an extremely high hurdle, though the conservative group appears well versed in recalls and Wisconsin law is a bit easier than other states).
