Russell Pearce Recall Scores 18,315 Signatures and Counting, Let the Battle Begin - Phoenix News - Feathered Bastard
Citizens for a Better Arizona, the group spearheading the effort to recall the powerful state Senate President, made history today, turning in 18,315 signatures to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office, more than double the 7,756 signatures required by law for a recall election.
The SOS now has ten days to review the signatures and get them over to the Maricopa County Recorder's Office for verification. The recorder then has 60 days to verify the signatures. If the petition sheets pass muster, the SOS will send a letter to Pearce, telling him he can either resign or face a recall.
