Vos Wrong on Recall Changes
As one might expect, some Leggies are unhappy with the Wisconsin Constitution.
The day after hundreds of thousands of people jammed polling places across the state to cast their ballots in six state Senate recall elections, Republican State Rep. Robin Vos announces he's working to keep this from ever happening again.Vos is proposing on a constitutional amendment that would limit why a state lawmaker can be recalled.
Right now there doesn't need to be a reason, but Vos thinks it should only happen if a politician has been indicted, charged with a felony, convicted of a misdemeanor or violated the code of ethics."Recalls are supposed to be used in rare circumstances, when I believe someone broke the law or committed a crime in office," said Vos.
