John Deeth Blog: Partial Recall: Linn County GOP legislators introduce recall bill

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The Linn County salary war has escalated to the legislative level, as
Republican House leader Kraig Paulsen and Linn County freshmen Nick
Wagner and Renee "Landslide" Schulte have introduced a bill that would
bring recall elections to Iowa for the first time. The bill applies
only to local officials, and the exclusion of state legislators from
their own bill is already a bone of contention. I'm not sure yet
whether this is a serious effort. More likely, I think this is a
message to the Linn County supervisors: "Reconvene your compensation
board and get the pay cut recommendation that you promised during the
campaign."
