Wisconsin Group Wants Recall Of Governor Doyle

A conservative group that claims credit for forcing a number of county executives across Wisconsin to step down, is hoping to parlay their success into a recall effort of Governor Doyle.

The conservative group is called Citizens for Responsible Government. It's forced Pewaukee Mayor Jeff Nowak to step down, and it's been trying to get Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz to do the same.

Now CRG is hoping to extend its pitch for fiscally conservative policies by organizing a recall of Governor Doyle.

The group is facing an uphill battle. The group expects it will need a least a million dollars to organize a recall effort, but it has less than $5,000 dollars right now.

CRG executive member Orville Seymer says he's frustrated that there has been little action on a proposal to limit state and local tax revenue.
