The recall campaign against George began after he voted against expanding gambling at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee. George made appeals to stop or delay the recall to a trial court, appeals court and state Supreme Court, but he was unsuccessful at all levels. Signatures were first filed to the elections board in June 2003.
George was defeated in a special Democratic primary held October 21, 2003, by state Assemblyman Spencer Coggs. Only 8% of voters turned out for the election. Coggs went on to be the only candidate on the November 18 general election ballot, assuring his victory.
