Oregon: Harney County Commissioner recall makes the ballot over Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover

Some follow up from one of the big media stories of last year -- the takeover of a wildlife refuge center, Petitioners have handed in enough signatures to get the recall against Harney County Commissioner Steve Grasty on the ballot by June 28 (he serves as County Court judge, though that is chairman of the commission, not a judge). Petitioners needed 444 signatures, and they got 458 valids. Grasty was first elected in 1998 and his term runs out this year.

The issue was Grasty's opposition to the takeover/41-day holdout of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by Amnon Bundy and his supporters.
