Weirdest recalls -- Vol. 1
Last week, in discussing the issue of recall reruns, I linked to one noteworthy rerun 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) It didn't matter -- Stebbins kept his seat (Update: He apparently lost it in a later recall).
