California: Calaveras Supervisor recall abandoned

Second recall effort against District Supervisor Darren Spellman abandoned. The proponents handed in only 10 signatures on the original petition request -- they needed 20. They claim that the delay will end a chance of getting on the November ballot, and they did not want the expense of a special election. Note that in December, the first recall fell 366 signatures short of the 1,702 need.

The article notes a few of the actions that led to the recall campaign:

After showing up to his first board meeting in hip waders to suggest he would be trudging through mud, Spellman has accused other officials of corruption, announced his intent to run for Congress, and used his position on the Board of Supervisors to threaten the job of a high school teacher.
