Judge allows Republican Wis. recalls

We Are Wisconsin and other pro-union groups have filed a permit with the city to camp out on parts of Capitol Square from Saturday through June 20 during the Legislature’s budget session. A meeting was set Friday to work out details, the Journal Sentinel reports.
