Bloomberg Editorial on "Stop the Recall Madness"

I'm hoping to write-up a larger article on the phenomena of editorial anti-recall positions. Here, Bloomberg's editorial team notes that: "If managerial mistakes are sufficient for recalling elected officials, no mayor or governor in America is safe."

Amazingly, they seem to miss the fact that most governors and mayors are not subject to recall. Only when voters go to the trouble of adopting recall laws, usually overwhelmingly and in the face of opposition by editorial boards and elected officials, can these officials face a recall for "managerial mistakes."
