Georgia: Judge tosses out recall effort against Mackintosh Chairwoman

A judge threw out the attempt to recall McIntosh County Commission Chairwoman Kelly Spratt -- Georgia is a judicial recall state, so there needs to be a showing of cause. The judge noted that there is no illegality alleged. The decision was based on the implementation of curbside garbage pickup, which resulted in a $128.40 annual user fee onto their property tax bills to pay for the service.
The recall proponents got 100 signatures to apply for the petition, and would have needed 2,426 signatures.
The county may try to sue for court costs.
