RecallCdA organizer Frank Orzell confirmed Thursday the recall petitioner secretly recorded giving inaccurate information in an attempt to solicit a signature works for his organization. Orzell said he spoke to the petitioner — whose first name was withheld from the online story but is known by The Press — about not using misinformation in the future. “We do an extensive training program,” Orzell said of the petitioners, most of whom are volunteers but some are paid. “He did not intentionally” use wrong information, Orzell said. The recording was provided to The Press Tuesday, and posted online with a short story Wednesday. The approximately three minute recorded conversation between a man and the petitioner could not be authenticated because neither camp would go on the record Wednesday, but Orzell said Thursday the conversation did happen/Tom "Pitbull" Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.
