Election Panel Approves Petition to Recall Kilpatrick

Wed, Apr 30 2008

Wayne County officials approved language for a recall campaign against Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, green-lighting the second effort to oust him since the $8.4 million whistle-blower scandal broke this year.

The first never got started, after the language was rejected when Kilpatrick’s lawyers argued the petitioner didn’t live in the city.
