The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has come out with its own analysis of a random sample of Walker recall petition signatures, and says based on its findings, it would be hard to stop the recall.
There is an on a petition to recall state Sen. Van Wanggaard. There are independent groups working to verify signatures.
In a story posted on Feb. 7, the Journal Sentinel reported it found about 15 percent of the signatures could not be verified, and noted that would not be enough to stop the recall of the governor.
The analysis took that a step further, and the JS reported "even if the number of unverifiable signatures turned out to be three times higher," it would be hard to strike enough signatures to stop the recall.
Lynn Freeman, vice chair of the board of directors for United Wisconsin, told the JS:
"I don't want us to have a 15 percent problem, but even if we do, we are still far and above the signatures needed."
The state Republican Party did not respond to a JS request for comment.
