New Mexico: Petitions started against Albuquerque mayor

Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry is facing recall petitions over his support for the police after the shooting death of James Boyd, a mentally ill homeless man. Berry got almost 70 percent of the vote in November.
No word on how many signatures are needed, but its definitely in the tens of thousands (33 1/3 of turnout). New Mexico is also a judicial recall/malfeasance standard state, so there would have to be a judicially accepted showing of cause for the recall to continue.
