MADISON (AP) - One of the five signatures on Gov. Scott Walker's recall petition Wisconsin elections officials thought was a fake person is actually real.
Staff at the Government Accountability Board flagged Fungky Van Den Elzen as a fake name after not finding it on the list of registered voters or phone books. But the board was contacted Thursday by someone who found a Facebook page for her.
That leaves just four fake signatures identified out of more than 931,000 submitted. The board was to vote Friday on ordering the recall election against Walker since nearly 901,000 signatures were determined to be valid.
The other four fake names struck were Adolf Hitler, Mick E. Mous, Donald L. Duck, and I Love Scott Walker Thanks.
An additional 26,109 signatures were struck for other reasons.
