Louisiana: Petitions taken out against two state representatives

Two state legislators, State Representatives Greg Cromer and Kevin Pearson are both facing recall petitions from high schools teachers opposed to their support for the Governor's education bills. One of the petitions was filed by Slidell City Councilman Jay Newcomb (a Republican, like Cromer and Pearson), who in his day job is a teacher at Slidell High School.

Louisana has arguably the hardest requirements to get on the ballot. They need signatures from one-third of the registered voters in each representative's district within 180 days.
