Update: Here's another story not behind a paywall:
State Senator Todd Kaminsky (D) and Assemblywoman Judy Griffin (D) are sponsoring the proposed law. The issue appears to be that Oceanside Sanitation District Commissioner Ryan Hemsley "alleged racially charged Facebook posts," leading to calls for his removal. Hemsley denied making the posts.
The recall would require the smaller of the number of 10% of registered voters or 5000 signatures.
