Arizona: Petitions filed against State Representative over racial comments and past arrest

Petitions have been taken out against State Representative David Stringer (R) following a Prescott City Council 6-1 vote asking for his resignation over racially charged comments. This is not the first time that Stringer has been criticized for his racial comments -- the Governor and both parties have called for his resignation. Stringer is also facing a new disclosure that "he was arrested in 1983 in Baltimore on charges including child pornography."

A recall cannot begin until the summer -- Stringer was just reelected and there is a six month grace period before a recall can begin.

Petitioners would need 24,990 signatures to get on the ballot.
