Florida: Debacle in Florida voting leads to calls for recall of election supervisors

Due to the amazingly botched election in Florida, there are now calls for recalling election supervisors, notably the Lee County's Sharon Harrington. Florida has a malfeasance standard for county officials (no recall for state-level officials, though), but there is probably a very good claim of incompetence.

This article notes that the "petition drives never work." Based on what I see as Florida law, petitioners would need the signatures of 5% of registered voters, or (if my math based on the stats of the Lee County website is correct) close to 19,421 signatures
