Petition names go public in Wisconsin recall

From Los Angeles Time Nation Now:

The Wisconsin recall petitions — consisting of more than 1 million names asking to recall Gov. Scott Walker, the lieutenant governor and four state senators — have been posted online by state election officials, even though signers raised questions about how the disclosures might affect their personal security.

The decision to make the names public, announced Tuesday, means that anyone will be able to see the petitions. By Wednesday morning, the petitions, which have signers' names and addresses and the date they signed, were already available in nonsearchable, PDF format.
