MADISON, Wis. (AP) - State election officials say a political agitator running as a fake Republican in this spring's recall elections has now submitted enough valid nomination signatures to get on the ballot.
Arthur Kohl-Riggs, who has spent the last year and a half prowling the state Capitol videotaping lawmakers, entered the race as a fake Republican to force Gov. Scott Walker into a primary. He had until the end of the day Tuesday to submit at least 2,000 nomination signatures to the state.
Government Accountability Board staff said he turned in only 1,813 names. Board spokesman Reid Magney said Kohl-Riggs turned in enough signatures but staffers struck some because the sheets were missing circulators' names.
The staff gave him until Friday to correct the shortcomings and he did. Board staff reported late Wednesday afternoon he now has 2,182 names.
