Spokane Secures Recall Election for Mayor's Seat

October 08, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

Spokane Mayor Jim West, embroiled in a City Hall sex scandal, will face a recall election Dec. 6 now that opponents have gathered enough signatures to put his fate on the ballot.

Elections Supervisor Paul Brandt said that workers stopped counting after verifying 12,684 signatures, 117 more than needed for a recall election.

West, 55, is accused of misusing his office by seeking dates from young men over a website and offering them gifts, trips and jobs at City Hall. West has acknowledged having had relationships with young men but has denied doing anything illegal.
