Washington, DC: Police union head survives recall vote

Sergeant Matthew Mahl, the head of the police union (and a gay man, as noted quite prominently in this story) survived a recall vote. They needed 2/3rds of voters to got against, the vote was 595-387 in favor of removal (60 percent). Turnout was seemingly low, 982 votes out of 3600 officers.

The issue appears to be that there wasn't strong enough negotiation for pay.
