Texas: McKinney City Councilman files suit to stop recall vote, expected in May

Councilman La'Shadion Shemwell, who is scheduled to face a recall election on May 2, has filed suit to toss at the attempt..

Shemwell has been a controversial member of the council with complaints of violating ethics codes and making inflammatory statements and getting arrested repeatedly (one seemed to be for domestic violence), which he claimed occurred after he was racially profiled after refusing to sign two citations after he was pulled over for speeding last year. Shemwell has previously declared a "black state of emergency" in Texas.

McKinney approved an amendment to make recalls easier to get on the ballot earlier this year.
