Virginia: Petitions filed in recall attempt against Norfolk City Treasurer

City Treasurer Anthony Burfoot is facing petitions over his upcoming trial on public corruption charges over taking close to $500,000 in kickbacks/bribes will serving as councilman. The petition had to be rewritten over inaccuracy in the limits Burfoot faces in speaking with potential witnesses who are elected and appointed officials, as well as civil servants.

Virginia has a recall trial -- meaning if enough signatures are handed in, a judge would hold a trial to decide if Burfoot stays in office. There is no vote. Petitioners need 4352 signatures (10% of turnout).
