Virginia: Recall Trial of Norfolk Treasurer called off due to conviction

Not sure why this didn't get posted when I wrote, but the recall trial against Norfolk Treasurer Anthony Burfoot was found to be moot after his conviction for selling his votes when he was a councilman and lying under oath. The recall trial was delayed for a year after he was indicted (he was sentenced to six years). The prosecutor claimed he would not have pushed for a trial, as the actions did not occur when he was a treasurer.

Petitioners handed in almost 6500 signatures, 4670 were valid. They needed 4656.
