California: Moreno Valley Councilwoman recall gets on the ballot

The recall against Moreno Valley Councilwoman Victoria Baca has enough signatures to make the ballot. Petitioners handed in 2817 valids, they needed 2547 (20% of registereds). This will be the second recall in Moreno Valley, as Mayor Tom Owings was ousted last month. Another member resigned last year under indictment. It sounds like the recall will probably be held on Election Day.

The recall comes after Baca and other council members had their homes raided by federal and local investigators. No charges have been filed, and the recall proponents instead cite to her opposition to sobriety checkpoints, her support of Owings and a vote to transfer library money to a road project.

This was the second recall attempt against Baca. The first failed to get enough signatures to bother handing in.
