Recall effort for 2 Democratic Wis. senators fails after organizers miss filing deadline

MADISON, Wis. A recall effort targeting two Democratic state senators has fallen short at the deadline.

Organizers had until Monday afternoon to turn in petitions to recall Sen. Lena Taylor of Milwaukee and Sen. Fred Risser of Madison. But the organizers failed to meet the deadline.

Taylor and Risser were seen as two of the safest Democrats targeted by recall organizers. Both ran unopposed in 2008 and represent heavily Democratic districts.

Election officials are currently reviewing petitions already turned in against five GOP senators and three Democratic senators. The senators are being targeted for their votes for or against a divisive bill that curtails collective bargaining rights for most public employees.

Rethugs targeting Dem Sen. Spencer Coggs of Milwaukee have until tomorrow (Tuesday) to file a recall petition. Rumor has it they aren't going to make it.
