Ohio Supreme Court rules Finkbeiner recall invalid
Finkbeiner's legal team said the petition forms were missing the sentence, "Whoever Commits Election Falsification is Guilty of a Felony of the 5th Degree."
The state's highest court agreed, saying that although the Toledo City Charter does not say that recall petitions must include the sentence that was left out, the state's election laws do require the missing sentence.
About 40,000 signatures were collected on the petition to remove Finkbeiner from office.
