Star: Funkhouser recall petitions turned in

Prime Buzz:

The committee of petitioners trying to recall Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser turned in about 600 pages of petitions to the city clerk’s office this afternoon, which they estimated contain 9,000 to 10,000 signatures.

They also estimated that they have collected 3,000 additional signatures that are still out in the field and have not yet been turned in.

That still leaves the group needing probably 5,000 more signatures to meet the theshhold of nearly 17,000 signatures to qualify for a recall election.

Election authorities will likely take a few days to count the number of valid signatures and report back how many more are needed. The committee would then have 10 days after that to try to reach the required number.
