Arizona: South Tucson Mayor facing recall

South Tucson Mayor Paul Diaz is facing an upcoming recall, after petitioners handed in enough signatures to move forward. No word on scheduling yet. The issue seems to be support for a new court system that funnels people into substance abuse treatment.

 Petitioners handed in 320 signatures, 222 of them were valid. They needed 183. 55 of the 98 rejected were signed by non-registered voters (don't usually see that detail of why the signatures were rejected). 

 Diaz moved up to mayor in 2013, and was elected in 2011.
