Nebraska: Neligh editorial says recalls should only be for "serious offenses"

From our perspective, the reason we didn’t want to see the recall effort succeed — and we’ve made this same point on several previous occasions involving different communities and different individuals — is that we don’t believe recall efforts should be undertaken simply because a decision is made that some disagree with. 
 Recalls should be reserved for situations where elected officials are guilty of serious offenses — financial misconduct, ethical improprieties, continued offensive behavior, an unwillingness to carry out one’s duties as an elected officials and the like.
