Texas: Corruption case leads to call for recalling entire Patton Village City Council

Last month, Mayor Pamela Munoz was indicted in a public corruption case. Now, 30 Patton Village community members are calling for a recall of the entire city council (which may be just two council members -- not clear from the story). The person cited calling for the recall lost to Munoz in the last election.

One interesting development -- have to look at their laws. It says petitioners will need to submit signatures from 51% of the voters (145) in the last election to the Montgomery County DA's office (who would send it along to a judge to decide the validity of the claim). There will be another petition circulate to registered voters who didn't vote in the November election -- that will go to the Texas AG. Never heard of that type of law before.
