Idaho: Four Coeur d'Alene council members are facing recall drives, including the mayor

Four Coeur d'Alene council members are facing recall drives, including the mayor. The issue is a plan to overhaul McEuen Park. The members facing threats are Mike Kennedy, Woody McEvers, Deanna Goodlander and Mayor Sandi Bloem.
The petitioners, RecallCdA, will have 75 days to collect signatures from 20 percent of the registered voters during the last election. Only registered voters count -- looking like 4,311 signatures

A couple of particularly different hurdles: For a recall to win, the petitioners must not only get an absolute majority, but each incumbent must receive more votes in support of a recall than the incumbent received votes during their last election.
In 2009, each of the four candidates won re-election. Kennedy earned 3,162 votes, McEvers 3,280, Goodlander 3,146, and Bloem earned 3,955.
