California: Signatures verified against three Westminister officials; Recall still to be scheduled

Westminister Mayor Tri Ta and Councilmembers Kimberly Ho and Chi Charlie Nguyen will all be facing an upcoming recall vote. Petitioners handed in over 11,000 signatures, they needed 8736 (don't yet see how many were validated). The issue is claims of ethical violations, such as limiting debate and participation.

There is also an attempt against the other two members, Tao Do and Sergio Contreas. Do's supporters have backed the recall of the other three and Do welcomed the recall of the other three on Facebook.

The recall will be a special election -- because of the law (the recall must be held between 88 and 125 days after the next council meeting), it cannot coincide with the March primary.
