Colorado: Recall against 12th Judicial District Attorney (Alamosa/San Luis County) makes the ballot

The recall against Alamosa/12th Judicial District Attorney Alonzo Payne has gotten to the ballot. Petitioners handed in 5974 signatures, with 4757 being declared valid. They needed 3996. An election date will be set in the future.

The recall effort is over complaints of being soft on crime (not pursuing charges on large drug busts and not following up with crime victims on plea deals, as required by law), so a bit along the lines of the Boudin/Gascon recall efforts in California. The petitions were taken out by Alamosa Mayor Ty Coleman.
