Local News | Recall effort against Portland mayor falls short | Seattle Times Newspaper

Local News | Recall effort against Portland mayor falls short | Seattle Times Newspaper:
"A group trying to recall Portland's mayor over a sex scandal failed to gather enough signatures by Monday's deadline, but said it would try again.

Organizers of the Community to Recall Sam Adams said they did not have the 32,000 valid signatures required to put a recall on the ballot. Jasun Wurster started the recall campaign after Adams admitted to lying about his sexual relationship with a former legislative intern who was a teenager at the time."

They might as well just wait. Its not like the guy's going to get elected again after Beau Breedlove (speaking of which, have you seen him? I totally understand where Sam's coming from. I'd have done him too).

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
