Oregon: Harney County Judge survives recall over National Wildlife Refuge takeover; Signatures handed in for Commissioner

Harney County Judge Steve Grasty (the judge chairs the three person county commission) easily survived his recall, getting 70% of the vote. This recall was over the takeover of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by supporters of Ammon Bundy.

Grasty's term runs out in January.

Petitioners have also looked to recall Commissioner Boyd Britton over similar issues (and some other claims). Petitioners handed in 567 signatures and they need 490 valids.
