Recall petition approved for Michigan's GOP governor

Amazingly, the petition approved has nothing to do with the Flint Water crisis.

From MLive:
A petition to recall Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder was approved by the Board of State Canvassers Monday after more than 100 citizens attended the meeting in anger over the Flint water crisis.

The petition approved aims to recall Snyder for creating the State School Reform/Redesign Office. Another nine petitions more directly related to the Flint water crisis were rejected.
The board has considered around a dozen such attempts to recall Gov. Rick Snyder since November of 2015, but has rejected each attempt before today's meeting. On Monday the board rejected nine of ten petitions for reasons ranging from misspellings to the misstatement of a law's title.

Rev. David Alexander Bullock of Detroit submitted two of the petitions with misspellings. He argued the meaning was still discernible.
The misspellings to me are an exclamation point proving the failings of Michigan's unionized schools.

The petitioners now have 60 days within a six-month window to gather nearly 800,000 valid signatures in order to put a Snyder recall vote on the ballot.

My guess is that leftists will equate this strange recall effort over some arcane interpretation of the law to Al Capone's conviction for income tax invasion instead of racketeering.
