Missouri: Ferguson Mayoral recall effort falls 27 signatures short

The Ferguson Mayoral recall effort seems to have missed out by 27 signatures, with officials holding that only 1787 of those handed in were valid (petitioners need 1814, they turned in over 3200). The latest batch of signatures had a much better success rate -- 276 were tossed because of non-registered signers and 93 were because they previously signed the petition.

Of course, there is complaints about the process -- petitioners are claiming that the city clerk had five days to validate the signatures, which would have ended on Wednesday. The clerk only announced the ruling today.
