An update on the bizarre Keyser recall story. Perhaps most importantly, the key backer of the recall claims that he spoke with the West Virginia Secretary of State and the city charter recall law that calls for a "loser pays"-type system (anyone who signs a petition could be forced to pay for the cost of the recall), and was told the law is in violation of West Virginia's law.
The recall allegations stem from criticism on a website called "Eye on Keyser." One of the prominent people on the site, Mark Tranum, is seeking the recall, though he didn't say who he will try to recall. Apparently, at the City Council meeting, the former City Administrator called the Mayor Randy Amtower a “pervert” and “loudmouth know-it-all.”
