Texas: City Council still has not adopted petition form for Edinburg Mayor recall effort

The attempt to recall Edinburg Mayor Richard Molina over his arrest on election fraud charges has been stuck with the city not having a form to give the petitioners. The City Attorney said that because there has never been a recall in the city, they aren't sure what forms to use. Now, the city council didn't have a quorum for a meeting to discuss the petition (Molina and his two supporters were no shows), and then met a second day to vote on contracts but ignored this question. As has happened many times in the past, they may be trying to kill the recall effort with delay.

Molina allegedly pushed out of district residents to change their address and vote for him. Petitioners need about 2000 signatures to get on the ballot in 30 days (25% of turnout).
