Georgia: Gwinnett Commissioner recall held up for filing for 6 month grace period

The recall effort against Gwinnett Commissioner Tommy Hunter cannot start filing papers until July, due to the 6 month grace period. Hunter is facing recall threats after calling Congressman John Lewis a racist pig and calling Democrats "demonrats."

No word on the possibility that the recall would be accepted under Georgia's tough malfeasance standard/judicial recall law. If it did get past that stage, they would need 30% of registered voters, so it sounds like something on the order of 38,470 valids needed in 45 days.
