California: Newport Beach Council recall falls just short

The effort to recall Councilman Scott Peotter appears to have failed, though petitioners are asking for a recount. Petitioners handed in 10696 signatures, they needed 8445. The registrar threw out 2357 of them, leaving 8339 signatures. 205 of the signers asked to have their signatures revoked, which apparently is the difference. Peotter had submitted 1783 signature-withdrawal requests.

Peotter was targeted over his support of a condo project and his vote to decline the city's share of the state gas tax.
