Reserve recall efforts for misconduct
Placeholder Image
A recent recall effort launched against Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center, is all about politics and little about good government.Those affiliated with the conservative group, Citizens for a Responsible Government Network, are targeting Schultz for recall because of the long-time legislator's opposition to the recent mining bill that would have allowed a Florida company to open a large open iron mine in northern Wisconsin. Also targeted is Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar, who represents the area where the mine would be sited and led the Democratic opposition to the bill. Backers of the bill cited the number of jobs the mine would create, while opponents charged the mine would destroy one of the last pristine areas in the state.
