Ohio: Second recall attempt launched against Cleveland Councilman
Councilman Basheer Jones is facing a second recall attempt presumably by supporters of former Councilman T. Dow, who lost to Jones by 13 votes last year. The first effort did not turn in signatures. Petitioners need 676 signatures -- the reason for the recall is threats that Jones allegedly made to businesses and questions about residency. The earlier attempt led to moves to tighten recall laws.
