An effort to recall Ray Garofalo, a member of the Republican Party, from his elected position representing District 103 in the Louisiana House of Representatives was launched in the summer of 2012.

On June 25, 2012, two St. Bernard Parish teachers filed a recall petition against Garofalo for his support of Gov. Bobby Jindal's education reforms. Garofalo said the move was the act of a special interest group, stating “The overwhelming majority of people in my district were in favor of reforming the education system."[1] In order for a recall election to be scheduled, organizers would have had to collect signatures from one-third of registered voters in the district within 180 days.

In October 2012, the Secretary of State's office said the petition drive failed to collect enough signatures.[2]
