South El Monte Mayor Stan Quintana was thrown out of office Tuesday in a special recall election. Widely criticized for his role in an alleged hit-and-run accident in October, Quintana was defeated by about a 3-2 margin. The final tally was 591 for recall and 365 against. Quintana had lied about his involvement in the accident, fabricating a story to explain the damage to his car, police said.
