California: Recalled Fullerton councilman seeking seat -- third time's the charm?
Don Bankhead, one of the three Fullerton councilman who was recalled and removed on June 5th, is running for a council seat again.
Bankhead's career has been very interesting. In 1994, Bankhead lost a recall vote (that time for favoring a 2 percent utility tax a year earlier). He then came back a month later and won back his seat. So Bankhead is one of the rare officials to lose two recalls elections (the only other person I ever heard of with two recall losses was a Portsmouth, Virginia mayor).
