Texas: Petitioners handed in 5300 signatures in Austin Council recall

Petitioners handed in about 5300 signatures in the recall of Councilwoman Ann Kitchen, which is 10% more than the 4800 they need to get on the ballot. Due to the particularity of the law, which gives the county clerk 20 days to verify, the council won't decided to hold the recall until March 18. They therefore may be able to put it off till the November election.

The leaders of the recall have finally gone public, claiming the idea has been discussed for years, though it is clearly about the background checks for ride sharing employees.
