Texas: Austin Mayor and five City Councilmembers facing recall efforts

Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Council members Natsha Harper-Madison, Sabino Renteria, Ann Kitchen, Paige Ellis and Kathie Tovo are all facing recall efforts from a Political Action Committee. The other five council members have terms ending in 2020. The leader of the effort previously sued the council over a voter proposition on a Major League Soccer stadium deal, and tried to get people dressed in zombie costumes and weddings out of graveyards.

Petitioners need 57,340 signatures for Adler and somewhere in the neighborhood of 4884 for Kitchen -- not clear what each of the rest will be.
