U.S. Virgin Island Governor facing recall threats

I'm not sure what happened to this one -- doesn't seem to be any real updates since February, but the United States Virgin Islands Gov. John de Jongh (D) was being threatened with a recall from the legislature (unclear from the article how their recall law works -- sounds like a modified impeachment/recall, ala the current UK proposal).

The recall grows out of a Daily Caller investigation which uncovered allegations that de Jongh accepted cash bribes in exchange for facilitating the sale of a telecommunications company to a politically embattled U.S. telecommunications cooperative.
