Group Details Problems in Vos Recall 2.0, Says Hundreds Signed More Than Once


A conservative organization that analyzed the Robin Vos recall 2.0 signatures says that thousands should be declared invalid.

“The paid out-of-state activists who want to dismantle the Republican majority in the Wisconsin Assembly have failed to recall Assembly Speaker Robin Vos–for the second time this year,” the group, Wisconsinites for Liberty Fund, wrote in a June 6 news release.

The group placed the recall data into an Excel sheet where you can search your name.

“Paid organizers of the irresponsible Robin Vos recall have once again fallen woefully short on collecting the required number of signatures,” the group wrote.

The Wisconsin Election Commission has yet to rule on the signatures’ validity. Under state law, Vos was given a chance to respond and contest the submissions. The first recall fell apart in a flurry of forgery accusations and invalid signatures.

The group made the following accusations after conducting an analysis:

– “Roughly 2,000 signatures were from individuals who are not 63rd District residents,” the Wisconsinites for Liberty Fund says.

– “Hundreds of individuals signed their name more than once. In some instances, individuals submitted their signature 5 separate times. [For example, Kaitlyn Anders signed 5 times on pages 254, 584, 735, 845, and 1,428],” the group says.

Vos recall

– “Hundreds of signatures were collected after the 60 Day deadline, on Day 61 and Day 62,” the group says.

– The group says some people who gathered signatures have criminal histories.

“The most recent failed effort was led by out-of-state, paid activists. Organizers offered these individuals $2,000 a week for their services. Nearly 70% of all signatures were collected by individuals who reside outside of Wisconsin, and less than 10% of signatures were collected by residents of the 63rd District,” the group said.

“We expect the Wisconsin Elections Commission to reject the recall petitions.”
