Texas: Lake Dallas Councilman targeted in recall

Lake Dallas Councilman Steve Forgey is facing petitions over claims that the council violated the city charter by agreeing to a new contract with the city manager and police chief (who happens to be the same person). Petitioners are also demanding the resignations of the mayor and another council member (who are up for reelection in May, so perhaps they are outside of the 6 month window).

The issue is the question of whether it is illegal for the city manager/police chief to draw two separate salaries at once. Sounds like a whole lot of trouble, as three council members are battling another council member who was removed from the council over charter violations, than got a temporary restraining order.

Petitioners need a little over 100 signatures to get on the ballot.
