The signatures are in.
Or at least they might as well be.
The OWH is reporting that “they have learned” that the Mayor Suttle Recall Committee will be turning in 37,000 some signatures.
We were informed on Wednesday that they had somewhere in the neighborhood of 32K sigs — so if you had the “Under” (Noelle Obermeyer, we are looking in your direction ), you lose.
Speaking of Ms. Obermeyer (because if you have the opportunity to have a student be your campaign spokesperson, you always say yes, right?), she is posturing that the anti-Recallers will,
“…use any and all efforts that we have to ensure that the recall effort doesn’t go through.”
Geez Noelle. Jeremy Aspen and the gang might want to think about an armored escort into the Courthouse.
What she really means though is “Lawyer Up!”
They’re still gearing to knock off more than 10,000 of those signatures, and are apparently hoping to depose at least that many. Though Election Commissioner Dave Phipps is already hinting that this will be tough to do, based on past counting procedures.
We are guessing that the Antis would be better off spending their money on the upcoming campaign — but when you have unlimited resources (cough…Dick Holland…cough) maybe you don’t care.
You can come back later to see what the official unofficial turn-in numbers are.
Or just, Go Huskers!
