Virginia: Dueling debate on recall effort against Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney

Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj (equivalent to a District Attorney) has written a complaint against the recall effort taking place to oust her from office. Here's a letter to the editor in Loudon News attacking Biberaj's complaints. 

Biberaj is one of three Virgina Commonwealth Attorneys who faced recall efforts, including  Arlington County's Parisa Dehghani-Tafti and Fairfax County's Steve Descano.

The "Republican-linked" group, Virginians for Safe Communities, claimed they've raised $250,000 and have another $500,000 pledged  All three of the prosecutors were elected in 2019 with the support of George Soros' Justice and Public Safety PAC. This feel a part of the other prosecutorial recall attempts taking place in the country, including the notable removal of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin. 

I haven't looked into this, but this could be either a Recall Trial (unlike to succeed), a recall vote (some place in Virginia have this on the local level -- I don't think it is allowed for county positions, but I haven't the time to check it out now) or completely rejected by the courts. I really don't know yet.
