Petition Started To Recall Gov. Evers

In response to recent civil unrest in Kenosha, a Burlington woman has started a petition drive to try to recall Gov. Tony Evers, setting off a 60-day countdown to gather nearly 670,000 signatures. According to sources in Wisconsin, Misty Polewczynski filed paperwork to begin the recall petition last Friday, meaning the petitions would be due shortly before the Nov. 3 election. Courtney Beyer, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin said, “Trying to recall a governor with a 57% job approval rating in the midst of a global pandemic and civil unrest is irresponsible and absurd.” The Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Chairman Andrew Hitt: “Given the Governor’s inability to keep Wisconsinites in Kenosha safe and deliver basic government functions, it’s no wonder that a group of citizens would be motivated to have new leadership in the Governor’s Office as soon as possible and work towards that end.”
