FLINT, Michigan: On August 1, 2009, the Los Angeles Times featured a story about recall campaigns around the country in 2009. The story, "'Throw the bums out' is national mood", refers to Ballotpedia's list of 2009 recall campaigns around the country.[1]

Focusing on recalls directed at Don Williamson, Carty Finkbeiner, Kevin Stufflebean, Don Plusquellic, the Westwood Heights School District and the Big Oak-Groveland Unified School District, the article asserts that money woes are at the root of the issue.

Joe Mathews is quoted as saying "these early recalls could be the beginning of a deluge of local political battles."
