Oklahoma: Nowata recall on against four of five councilmembers
Despite prior claims by the city that the recall effort failed, recalls have been certified for four of the five Nowata city councilmembers. Those four are all men. The recall for the fifth councilmember, who is female, was deemed invalid , due to lack of signatures and missing warning and notarization. It was a separate group that took out the recall petitions in the failed recall, and the proponent of the successful recalls does cite the bad treatment of the fifth council member as an impetus for the recall effort.
