California: San Fernando Councilman resigns in face of recall
San Fernando Councilman Mario Hernandez resigned in the face of a recall already approved by the County Clerk against Hernandez, Mayor Brenda Esqueda and Councilwoman Maribel De La Torre. The council has to certify the petitions and then they have two weeks to schedule a vote. The council can choose a temporary replacement for Hernandez, but there will still be a vote.
Hernandez just filed a restraining order against De La Torre. He and De La Torre were having an affair.
