Filner recall leader gives competitor 24 hours to withdraw

by - July 30, 2013

The spearhead of a drive to recall San Diego Mayor Bob Filner announced Monday that his campaign was officially under way, and he called for the leader of a competing effort to withdraw within 24 hours. "We have to rid the city of this mayor," land use consultant Michael Pallamary said at a news conference. "He is committed to destroying this city day by day and hour by hour." His recall effort is the second filed against Filner, behind that of Stampp Corbin, the owner and publisher of LGBT Weekly. He has been accused of trying to derail Palamary's campaign because it's unclear whether it's legal to have two recall bids that target the same elected official. An opinion on that question by the City Attorney's Office is expected later this week. - News
