Louisiana: Petitions filed against Governor

Petitions have been filed against Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D), though it's not clear what the recall is about. Petitioners would need over 600,000 signatures in 180 days. This is the first gubernatorial recall threatened since  Louisiana loosened its recall laws. The state formally required 33 1/3 % registered voter signature to get on the ballot. Now, it is only 20%. 

Update: Edwards responds to the recall, noting that it is not keeping him up at night.
