Arizona: Superior Mayor facing recall threats over cash withdrawals

Mayor Jayme Valenzuela, who is also a commander in the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, is facing calls for a recall after allegations by the former town clerk that he made $2300 in withdrawals from the town debit card, including at a casino. The Town Manager abruptly resigned last friday and the financial officer hasn't shown up for work.

Following the town clerk's revelation, she was fired, in a 4-3 vote, with Valenzuela casting the deciding vote (she was on a six-month probationary period).
