Florida: Port St. Lucie's mayor facing recall petitions
Mayor JoAnn Faiella is facing petitions due to what opponents claim is incompetence. Challenging two stage signature gathering process. Petitioners need to 4,951 signatures (and pay $495) just to get to the right to collect 14,853 more signatures (15% total registereds) in 30 days. Faiella supporters are counter-petitioning, though I can't imagine those signatures have any legal value.
