MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A coalition leading the effort to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says its website was the target of a cyber-attack.

United Wisconsin says its servers were flooded at about 2 p.m. Monday.

The group says the source of the alleged attack on its website, http://www.unitedwisconsin.com , is unknown. But the group says it is reporting the incident to the FBI and the Wisconsin attorney general’s office.

Walker, a Republican, is being targeted for recall because of his moves to significantly curb union rights in Wisconsin.

A spokeswoman says in a statement the Republican Party of Wisconsin “does not condone or support” any misconduct by outside groups or “rogue individuals” to interfere with the recall process.
