Virginia: Five Warren County Supervisors facing recall trial efforts

Five Warren County Supervisors, Daniel J. Murray, Thomas H. Sayre, Tony F. Carter, Archie A. Fox and Linda Glavis, are facing recall efforts after they were indicted over misdemeanor charges over failing to act when $21 Million in county funds were embezzled with Economic Development Authority. The Warren County Sheriff committed suicide during the indictment process.

The Supervisors would face a recall trial -- something that only Virginia has -- if petitioners hand in between 100 and 250 signatures. Petitioners handed in 941 signatures, though it actually sounds like it needs to be significantly more. If the signatures are accepted, the judge would then hold a trial to decide whether the officials can retain their offices.
