The recall effort against three state senators is tied up in a couple of court battles. First an update: The effort against State Senator Patricia Farley has failed, as the petitioners didn’t get enough signatures. Enough signatures – roughly 17,500 – were gathered to force State Senator Joyce Woodhouse into a recall election. But she and her attorneys say about 5,500 of those signatures are invalid. A state lawsuit has been filed on this issue. Bradley Schrager is an attorney who filed two lawsuits on behalf of Woodhouse and some of her voters to stop the recall.
He told KNPR’s State of Nevada that 3,000 of those signatures are “constitutionally ineligible,” which means they don’t meet the requirements needed to sign the petition in the first place.
He said the rules for signing are in place to protect the process and they include everything from having voted in the election in which the person being recalled was elected to be still be registered to vote in that district.
