Missouri: Lee Summit Councilman facing recall effort
Councilman Chris Moreno is facing a recall effort, due to the state's Ethics Commission's investigation in Councilwoman Diane Forte for her business dealings with the parks department.Forte's companies twice sold awards that to the department (the value of the sales was about $2000). State law holds that there should have been a bid. Moreno has been a leader of the effort against Forte, which petitioners have called counterproductive. They already claim to have gathered 650 signatures.
