Texas: Petition form finally adopted for Edinburg Mayor recall effort

A form for petitions have been approved by the Edinburg City Council for Mayor Richard Molina. The recall is over his arrest on election fraud.

This ends a battle over how 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 weren'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.

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).
