Louisana: Recall effort against St. John the Baptist Parish DA fails
An effort to recall St. John the Baptist Parish District Attorney Bridget Dinvaut failed, though recall organizers are playing it off as their decision. They needed 9666 valid signatures by Monday. The issue appeared to be the firing of some staffers and the way Dinvaut was elected. She was in a runoff with the incumbent, who was leading in the polls, until he withdrew from the runoff for health reasons (not the euphemistic kind -- he later died). She was automatically elected.
