Weirdest recalls -- Vol. 1
Last week, in discussing the issue of recall reruns, I linked to two noteworthy reruns in Stockton, California in 1984. Mark Stebbins unseated Ralph White in a City Council election. White launched a recall campaign claiming Stebbins had lied about being black. (One of the best articles you are going to read in People Magazine right there). Stebbins won the first race in May, but then lost in a second recall in December, 1114-1042.
