Texas: Jasper recall challenge thrown out

Recall will be held on November 8. The Judge called the charter a "poorly written instrument," and, in a nod the plaintiffs complaint, criticized the fact that anyone in the city could sign a petition to recall a councilmember. 

"Common sense," he wrote, "suggests that the ability to recall a single-member-district's representative should be restricted to only those voters with the authority to vote in the recall election itself."
