Louisiana: Gonzales Councilman ousted
Gonzales Councilman Timothy Vessel was ousted with 75% against. This followed Councilman Gary Lacombe's resignation in the face of a recall. The recall was over their voting in a bloc and seeming opposition to the mayor. He was accused of a number of small violations (riding a bike with campaign signs on it too close to polling stations; plugging in an extension cord to a vacant trailer).
