Missouri: St. Louis Councilman facing two ouster efforts

Councilman Ernie Trakas (R) is now facing two efforts to remove him from the council, which he is blaming on the County Executive. The recall effort needs about 15,000 signatures, though petitioners aren't handed it in just yet.

Trakas barely won his seat, which seems to be a key swing in the counsel. He also opposed a zoning change for a construction business in his district, though later backed down.

Another removal effort is a claim that he violates the county charter by working as an attorney for public school districts.
