Wild Card/Tuesday — 6.12.12

Coeur d'Alene Held Hostage, Day 67: We're all in a holding pattern now as County Clerk Cliff Hayes' election department verifies signatures on RecallCDA ballots. The magic number is 4311. All four petitions to recall Mayor Sandi Bloem and council members Deanna Goodlander, Woody McEvers and Mike Kennedy have around 5,300 signatures. Another magic number is 20 percent. If 20% of the signatures or more fail to meet verification standards, the four will survive the recall attempt. Interesting times in this city at war. Now for your Tuesday Wild Card ...

  • BTW, I will be on Dave Cotton's KHQ NewsBreak show at 10 this morning to discuss the recall story.
