Texas: Threats invigorate recall effort against Floresville mayor, councilmen

The effort to recall Floresville Mayor Sherry Castillo and councilmembers Daniel Tejada and Juan Ortiz has been "invigorated" by threats by Castillo that signers could be prosecution for libel and slander and compared a lack of response to "doing nothing about Hitler's crimes, 911 atrocities or today's ISIS international crimes."

The recall is over hiring private investigators and council to show that Councilman Jim Miller was not a resident a year before his election. The council voted 3-2 to vacate the seat, which was upheld by a court, but Miller is serving until the replacement race in May. Miller's predecessor Eric Rodriguez is leading the recall effort. Petitioners need at least 500 signatures.
