Alaska: Recall petitions taken out against Governor

Petitions have now been taken out against Governor Mike Dunleavy (R), with over 10,000 signatures collected on the first day.

Dunleavy announced major spending cuts.

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.
