Texas: El Paso recall petitions rejected by clerk due to technicality

The 500 signature petition to recall city Rep. Cortney Niland was rejected by the Municipal Clerk's Office.  The reason given was that each page was notarized instead of containing an oath "that each signature is that of the person whose name it purports to be." Petitioners need 385 signatures.
Former El Paso Mayor Ray Salazar is leading the recall effort, which is based on the council approval of plans to tear down City Hall and build a $50 million ballpark in its place.
