Oregon: Recall attempt against Douglas County Commissioner accused of impersonating sherrif's deputy

This one is unusual -- a recall attempt has been started against two-term Douglas County Commissioner Joe Laurance, who has been accused of impersonating a sheriff's deputy, and cursing out county employees and members of the public.
The claims state that Laurance 'has in a deliberate fashion, tried to convey that he is an officer of the law, including his specific request to have a retired police vehicle assigned to him."
Petitioner needs 6.500 signatures, has until April 30th. He claims he has 1,000 signatures in the first week of petitioning. The recall would cost between $40,000 and $45,000.
