Petitioners are still pushing for the 38,642 signatures needed to get Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist's recall on the ballot. Petitioners have a February 22 deadline. Lindquist has been accused of leading a vindictive sex abuse prosecution, retaliating against employees, facing ethics investigations and has refused to turn over personal phone records to the County Executive.
Petitioners believe they need 58,000 signatures to get on the ballot. The campaign has raised between $20,000 and $36,000, but they feel, rightly, that they need a lot more to succeed.
