Editorial: Let's reconsider how politicians are recalled
There's talk of reforming Wisconsin's recall election procedures. We believe the time is right.
Recall changes have been proposed by State Sen. Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls). She reintroduced recall reform legislation known as Senate Joint Resolution 24 (SJR 24).
The proposal is intended to safeguard the ability of citizens to remove officials for misconduct or ethics violations, while ensuring that recalls aren't abused for political ends.
