Oregon: Lexington Mayor, who resigned in face of recall, loses race in moot election

Despite her resignation earlier in the month, voters still cast mail-in ballots to kick out Lexington Mayor Marcia Kemp. Kemp would have lost the race 62-42.

The government was shut down for nine days  after councilors did not show up for a budget meeting, which three of the councilors claim that Kemp did not send them "reminders in order to make them look bad" -- Kemp says they didn't show up to make her look bad.

City Councilman Bill Beard survived an October 1 recall vote, 54-43. A city maintenance worker filed the recall effort against Beard, and has since resigned.
