Suttle recall a go pending court battle

Unless a district judge finds instances of fraud, Mayor Jim Suttle will face a recall election early next year. The Douglas County Election Commission announced Dec. 4 that the Mayor Suttle Recall Committee collected 28,720 verified signatures, 2,077 more than the group needed to force a special election. The recall election is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 25, pending a Dec. 20 court ruling. Douglas County District Judge Peter Bataillon set the date to hear evidence of fraudulent activity during the collection process. Anti-recall group Forward Omaha says it has sworn testimony from a petitioner who claims he was paid per signature, a violation of state law.
