Ferguson Mayor Facing Another Recall Effort

Ferguson, MO  (KTRS)  Ferguson’s Mayor is facing another recall effort.

Ground Level Support’s push to recall Mayor James Knowles III fell short earlier this month when the group failed to turn in enough valid signatures. A review by the St. Louis County Board of Election Commissioners found that those petitions submitted May 28 fell more than 800 authentic signatures short of the 1,814 needed for the recall.

The new petitions with additional signatures still must be vetted by the county’s election board. Knowles has come under fire since the shooting death of Michael Brown and the report from the Department of Justice found improper practices within the city’s government and municipal court.
