MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has withdrawn the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents nomination of a UW-Platteville student whose name appears on the petition to recall Walker.

Walker spokesman Tom Evenson would not comment Thursday on why Joshua Inglett's nomination was being withdrawn.

RightWisconsin.com reported on Wednesday that Inglett's name was on a database of those who signed the petition that led to Walker's recall election last year.

Inglett tells WKOW-TV that he told the governor's office on Wednesday that he signed the petition. Later that day, Inglett says he was told his nomination was being withdrawn.

Inglett says he wasn't asked prior to Wednesday about whether he signed the petition.

Inglett was one of three appointees to the Board of Regents announced on Monday.
