Missouri: Kansas City Mayor recall effort fails

The recall effort against Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas failed, with petitioners not handing in signatures. The recall was over the extension of the mask mandate to combat the coronavirus pandemic. 

As Tony KC's site notes, Kansas City's recall law is a malfeasance standard/judicial recall one, which would seem to present a very high bar to get on the ballot. Note that Missouri recall provisions allowing it for charter cities also has a malfeasance standard.

Petitioners needed 13,393 signatures in 30 days to get on the ballot.
