Councilman Cross Coburn attempt to have the recall thrown out was rejected by a judge. The recall will take place on Election Day.
The recall began after nude photos of him were sent to the media. Coburn is both 19 and openly gay. Coburn blames city government members for the leak of the pictures (the Mayor signed the recall petition). Petitioners handed in over 900 valid signatures in two stages. They needed 893.
