Florida: Second round of signatures gathering started for three Sebastian City Council members

A second round of signature gathering is starting against Sebastian City Council members Damien Gilliams, Charles Mauti and Pamela Parris.

The recall seems to have started over fights with the Mayor and other council members. Gillams and Parris notably voted against the hiring of a new city attorney.  They were also arrested for breaking the Sunshine Law and perjury for lying to investigators. The three members allegedly voted to fire the city staff and appoint Gilliams mayor in what investigators call an illegal meeting. The two allegedly lied under oath.

The recall (which couldn't start until they've been in office six months (which seems to be in May) would require about 1995 signatures.
