Kansas: Bizarre ending to post-recall Basehor council meeting
Fred Box, one of the council members -- who would have also faced a recall except that the law prevents recalls of a majority of the members at once -- resigned. There was a stand-off over a move by two of the recalled councilmembers to appoint Box Council President, which would have led him to automatically step up to the mayor's office once the recall removals (of the mayor and two city council members) became official. The two recalled council members and Box refused to adjourn, until Box resigned.
