Louisana: Jefferson Parish President recall effort not allowed to set up petitions closer than 600 feet from polling place

The effort to recall Parish President Mike Yenni faced a blow, as a judge (and the attorney general) refused to allow petitioners to go up to 100 feet from polling places to get signatures. The petitioners claim that the rules preventing signature gathering anywhere closer than  600 feet from the polls was ruled unconstitutional in 1995. The case will not be heard until next week.

Petitioners need 90,000 signatures to get the recall on the ballot.
