Petitioners now claim to have more than 566,857 signatures to get the recall of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon. This is what is needed to get on the ballot (though, as I've mentioned, they need many more signatures than that). They have until July 6 to get the signatures in. Petitioners are apparently paying $8 per signature and are shooting for 650-700K -- they will likely need the higher amount to hope to get on the ballot (though I'm now wondering how the random sampling changes the odds).
I've talked about some of the issues in the LA Times as well.
