Fort Yuma Quechan Indian Tribe recall fails due to turn out issues

The second recall of tribal leadership, including President Keeney Escalanti, Vice President Virgil Smith and Council member Loraine White failed because a majority of registered voters did not come up to vote. Council member Jordan Joaquin also faced a recall, but actually won the vote outright.

The petitioner was Sally DeCorse, a tribal member who claimed the appointment of Smith unconstitutionally passed over her.
