Louisiana: Lafayette City Marshall facing recall effort

City Marshall Brian Pope is facing a recall effort in his term after he was sued by a newspaper organization for refusing to produce emails in the campaign for Sheriff. The emails allegedly would prove that Pope conspired with an unsuccessful candidate, Chad Leger, who is currently the Scott police chief. Pope was sentenced to 7 days for contempt and was indicted by a grand jury on malfeasance and perjury charges.

Petitioners need 27,500 signatures in 180 days.
