The recall effort against Miami Commissioner Joe Carollo, which previously featured a lawsuit, now has Carollo supporters gathering signatures to remove their names from signed petitions. Florida allows this counter-signature strategy, but it is required within 30 days after submission. Carollo is outside of that timeframe.. Petitioners gathered 1941 signatures and needed 1577 to pass the first stage. So Carollo needs at 365 removals.
Florida has a two stage signature gathering process, so petitioners would need to get another 4738 signatures in 60 days.
The recall is over accusations that Carollo pushed for targeted code enforcement against a businessman who owns the Ball & Chain nightclub.
