Maine: Waterville Mayor, Councilman survive recall votes

Mayor Nick Isgro (R) (1563-1472) and Councilman John O'Donnell (D) (270-257) both narrowly survived recall votes on Tuesday.

The Isgro recall was over his twitter posts attacking Parkland school shooting survivors and criticism of an anti-sexual harassment bill. Isgro has since asked for an apology and reimbursement for the recall effort.

The O'Donnell recall was started due to the method of his selection (he was appointed to fill the seat), though some reports tied it to a strategy to ward off the Isgro recall.

Here's a look at Maine's use of the recall.
