Detroit Mayor Fights Recall
(2008-03-06)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - A lawyer representing Detroit Mayor Kwame
Kilpatrick says he will ask a county elections commission to
reconsider its approval of language on a recall petition.
Attorney Alan Canady says the man who filed the petition does
not live at the west side Detroit address listed with the Wayne
County Clerk's office.
The elections commission on Wednesday approved one of six recall
petitions filed by 42-year-old Douglas Johnson.
Johnson has said a text-messaging sex scandal and $8.4 million
whistle-blowers' lawsuit settlement are part of the reason he wants
voters to recall Kilpatrick.
The Associated Press has left a call seeking comment from
Johnson.
Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey has said that 57,357 valid
signatures are needed to schedule a recall.
