Petitioners have handed in more than 5588 signatures for the recall of long-time Council Member Jack Evans (D). Petitioners need 4949.
Evans is facing recall threats after the revelation of 11 cases where he took action on behalf of paying client. Evans claims that he broke no rules. Members of the council are calling for his resignation.
If the recall gets on the ballot, an election would have to take place in 114 days and would cost an estimated $250,000.
