Lake County District Attorney David Schutt is running for his fourth term, while trying to avoid a recall for being overly aggressive. This is the second recall attempt against Schutt in three years. The petitioner, who called Schutt "evil", said that he wants to recall him to prevent Schutt from being a judge. Note that the petitioner was convicted of a DUI in August.
In a 2010 recall campaign, petitioners submitted enough signatures, but too many were found invalid.
