Peggy Bull was recalled from her position as the 7th District alderman of the City of Waukesha, Wisconsin in a special recall election on Tuesday, September 14, 2010.[1]

The recall effort was led by a group called "Concerned Citizens of District 7."[2]

The reason given for the recall was "the placing of a state transitional home in one of the neighborhoods of her district. Included in the transitional home are a couple of sex offenders."[3]

John Kalblinger was elected to replace Bull by a margin of 57% to 43%.[4]

Path to the ballot

424 signatures were filed to trigger a recall election, versus a requirement of 346 signatures. Frank Greuel and Wayne Dahnke submitted the signatures.

Bull filed a complaint with election officials asserting that some of the signatures were forged and that Frank Greuel's signature, which appeared on 20 petition sheets, each bearing 10 signatures, appeared to have been signed in two different hands. Bull hired an independent handwriting analyst to compare different Greuel signatures.

Greuel strongly disagreed with Bull's complaint, and submitted an affidavit that he did in fact personally circulate every petition sheet that bore his signature as its circulator.[5]
