Tim Humphries recall, Carlisle, Ohio (2010)
Don Dawson, a leader in the recall effort, gave the following reasons for the recall:
- The allegation that he downloaded pornographic images to a city-owner laptop computer.
- That he was involved in a so-called "road rage" episode in December 2009, where he allegedly approached an 18-year-old motorist while wielding a baseball bat.
Humphries said that whether or not the petitioners collected sufficient signatures to force a recall election, his reputation was "damag[ed], possibly for a lifetime."
He told a group of about 50 at a city council meeting in early March that he "lived a nightmare for the past four months."
Path to the ballot
For the recall effort to get on the ballot, 25% of the number of those who voted in the last mayoral election in Carlisle needed to sign the recall petition, or about 293 signatures altogether.
