06/05/2012 - If Wisconsin voters choose to remove Governor Scott Walker from office, in one of six recall elections taking place in the state, it will mark only the third gubernatorial recall in U.S. history, following California's removal of Gray Davis in 2003 and North Dakota's ouster of Lynn Frazier in 1921. Voters in 18 states can petition to recall state officials, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The number of recall efforts has increased in recent years.
