State Auditor Troy Kelley is facing petitions filed by a former state legislator and seeming political gadfly. The recall is over the hiring of a business associate who has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury. The petition also claims that Kelley violated state law (a necessary prerequisite for a recall in Washington) by living in Tacoma instead of Olympia.
The recall was filed by Will Knedlik, who was apparently disbarred as an attorney. Petitioner would need something on the order of 700,000 signatures to get on the ballot.
