Minnesota: Tracy City Councilman recall petitions validated

Councilman Tony Peterson is facing a recall effort, with petitioners handing in 157 signatures -- they needed 130. Originally, petitions were found to have only 125 (as some voters were out of district), but the petitioners went and got 14 more, of which 5 were validated.

Peterson is accused of bullying city employees. Minnesota is a judicial recall/malfeasance standard state, so there is a good likelihood that the recall will be rejected by the court.
