Alaska: Group started to Recall Governor

Governor Mike Dunleavy (R), who announced major spending cuts, is the subject of a Facebook group looking for his recall. No word on whether there is any intention to actually take out petitions. Alaska is a malfeasance standard/judicial recall state, so a showing of cause is needed (though the state courts has taken a lenient view of the the cause requirement in past instances).

Petitioners need to first get 28,501 signatures before the Division of Elections will consider if they meet the malfeasance standards. Then they would need 71,252 signatures to get to the ballot.

Update: Additionally meetings have taken place.
