West Virgina: Bridgeport mayor facing petitions over drug distribution allegations
Bridgeport resident Mayor Mario Blount is facing a recall attempt after being indicted over allegations of illegally distributing oxycodone and oxymorphone as a pharmacist. Petitioners need 10% of registered voters (700 signatures), plus they need to have a bond that covers the recall costs if the recall fails. We've been over this part of West Virginia law before.
