Ohio: Cleveland Mayor targeted in recall

Mayor Frank Jackson is facing a recall threat by the presidents of a Black Lives Matter group (though not affiliated with the national group) and Black on Black Crime due to complaints over ineffective leadership. Petitioners will need 12160 signatures in 30 days. The signers most have voted in 2017.

The group claims that they are trying to remove a whole set of officials, including Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish, Councilmen Blaine Griffen, Basheer Jones and Ken Johnson -- the later two have already faced recall threats. Congresswoman Marcia Fudge is also on the list, but there is a strong likelihood that a federal level recall would be declared unconstitutional.
