Missouri: Lee's Summit City Council considering charter amendment to raise recall signature bar, add malfeasance standard

Lee’s Summit City Council is proposing a charter amendment to make a recall tougher to get on the ballot. Right now, petitioners need 30 percent of turnout (which is frequently below 225) and the recall is not limited to malfeasance. The amendment is in the rules committee.
There was a recent attempt against Councilmember Rob Binney, but petitioners failed to get the 164 signatures.
