Kat Landry, the founder of the "responsible and effective citizen action for leadership in Louisiana" or "RECALL," filed a recall position with the state of Louisiana on January 10, 2006 to recall Governor Kathleen Blanco. Landry said Blanco's performance in response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita was poor. "It has been apparent to us that the lack of ability on the part of our governor is effecting all of us. It is in our faces everyday. Decisions that have been made month after month have not been as we can see on the best interest of our citizens," Landry said.
State law requires that recall petitions gain signatures of one thirs of the state's registered voters within 180 days. In this case that was 900,000 signatures by July 10, 2006. Blanco announced on July 6, 2006 that they would not gain enough signatures to move forward.
