Adams Faces Recall Petition Drive UPDATED

Claremont's Assemblyman, Anthony Adams, will face the prospect of a recall. Secretary of State Debra Bowen said that the recall petition has been certified. Proponents say that they will begin circulating petitions for signature as soon as they are printed.

Adams derided the effort as the brainchild of two "outsider" Orange County businessmen, Mike Schroeder (no relation to Claremont councilmember Larry) and Lee Lowery.

A Hesperia proponent of recalling Adams, Ed Laning, said that getting the required 35,825 valid 59th District voters would be like shooting fish in a barrel.
