Amending My "No More Recall" Statement From Last Night
Actually, I do not support eliminating the recall altogether. Overall, I think it's a great idea, and a necessary check-and-balance. With that said, the threshold for forcing the recall, in terms of the number of signatures needed, is too small. Too easy.
I'm going to do a little research, on the threshold as it stands today, the reasoning behind it back when the law was created, and the reality of today, and then report back on this. I'm leaning towards around 20-25% of voters in the prior election for the office in question, but I'm sort of shooting in the dark on those numbers at this point.
