An effort to recall Mike Dunnigan and Dan White from their positions on the Mullan, Idaho, city government took place on March 12, 2013.[1] Both officials were retained in office.[2] The recall effort was launched in September 2012.[3] Dunnigan is Mullan's mayor while White serves as president of the city council.

Reasons for recall

In September 2012, a video was posted on YouTube that showed Mullan shouting profanities at a Mullan resident. The man who posted the video, Jeff Bergstrom, spearheaded the recall effort. Bergstrom believed the city had mishandled public funds. After the video was posted on YouTube, city attorney Keisha Oxendine resigned from her post.[3]
