North Carolina: Crazy details on the Ronda Mayoral recall

Lots of detail about the recall battle in Ronda, as Mayor Victor Varela is suing the petitioner Kevin Reece, claiming (among other things) that the Reece is part of an international cockfighting ring. Reece is alleged to have opposed animal control and nuisance ordinances due to his role in the ring.

There's plenty more in here, including allegations that the wife of the mayor was videotaped smoking marijuana by a teenager hired by Reece. The town is also reported to have about 420 people, to make that marijuana connection clear. Reece's late wife ran and lost against the Democrat Varela in his initial victory. Varela won reelection in 2011 with more than 69 percent of the vote.
