|Jauch Recall Exploratory Committee|
Well good for you Shirl.
So much for the - can't deal with losing the election - rationale for denying people their right which is guaranteed in our State Constitution. Naturally, Shirl believes they have a REAL reason to start a recall.
Who cares, let's get to the numbers...
So Bob Jauch won his election in 2010 by just under 52% - definitely a viable margin in an election. Here's the rub, not only has Jauch held the seat for like 75 years, he won with a total 31,000 votes. Shirl and her friends need to get a minimum of 16,000 signed petitions (19 to 20,000 to be certain). For that area with those kind of numbers, it's a mighty long slog.
Shirl will need to get almost 68% of the people who voted for Jauch's opponent to sign a petition. Nearly impossible. As someone who has run for office 3 times and lost, she should kinda know this.
Well, the Siren wishes Shirl luck, she'll need it.
