Glenn Grothman's bill would require petition gatherers' statement of authenticity to be in the form of an affidavit, acknowledged by an officer authorized to administer oaths, affirm the circulator's identity and state that the circulator appeared before the officer and executed the statement in the officer's presence.It's debatable whether Republican Senator Grothman's "hamper[ing], restrict[ing] or impair[ing]"* would be legal before the recalls got rolling, but it's almost certainly illegal now that the recalls are underway. There's some real desperation among the WISGOP leadership in the Senate, where Grothman stands to lose his position as assistant majority leader.
Changing the rules during the game, is what Glenn Grothman is up to.
And you don't get to do that. Sorry bub. Eat your peas.
