Colorado: El Paso Sheriff recall petitions approved

Petitions have been approved against El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, who is facing complaints that he had affairs with subordinates who he then promoted (as well as mismanaged funds). The first attempt at petitions failed to meet the requirements.
Petitioners need 44,387 signatures by July 12 (25% of turnout). That number is a giant undertaking, plus Maketa is a term-limited and will be out of office in January. Despite the charges, this one looks like a long-shot.
