Patrick Duncan recall, Franklin County, Nebraska (2012)
An effort to recall Patrick Duncan from his position as county attorney of Franklin County, Nebraska was launched in August 2012. The recall effort was abandoned in October 2012 after recall supporters failed to turn in signatures.
A recall affidavit was filed by Deborah Welton on August 14. Welton said, "I think I’m doing what dozens, if not hundreds of people in this county want done, but a lot of people don’t want to stick their necks out and do it." The petition against Duncan noted discrepancies in the handling of court cases as the impetus for recall. Recall organizers did not turn in signatures by the October deadline, and the recall effort came to an end.
