Texas: Forest Hills Secretary files suit over harassment claims in past recall verification process

A fight over recall petitions has led former City Secretary Grace Edwards to sue for wrongful termination. Edwards claims that she was harassed after she questioned signatures on recall petitions against a former mayor and council member.

In the case, Edwards questioned some of the signatures (over missing information or non-registered voters). Edwards eventually verified the petitions, but too late for the council to order a recall election for May 2010, and the council voted against holding another election in November of that year. The two targets lost their seats in May 2011.

It should be note that Edwards has filed cases against the council before.
