Minnesota: Tracy Councilman Survives February 13 recall vote

The City Council set the recall of City Councilman Troy Peterson for February 13, but only after Peterson attempted to push a motion to set it himself. The Mayor did not want Peterson to vote on the motion, so he abstained. The petition was signed by 130 registereds and claimed that Peterson overstepped his authority and bullied a former city administrator.

Minnesota's recall law has generally shot down all recalls, but this one does seem to be moving forward.

Update: Peterson survived the recall 211-174.
