“It’s based on either a vendetta or something personal,” said Commissioner Belt. “It was totally unfair and the reasons that were given were unsubstantiated.”
Head turned in 5583 signatures to the court. The County Clerk only accepted 2270 of them, well short of the nearly 4000 needed to proceed.
County Clerk Francine Tipton Long says she threw out those signatures because several of the circulators were not registered in the county, and many of the addresses people provided did not match with those in the county database.
Patterson says that in most cases, residents didn’t understand what the petition was for when they signed it.
Head tells 11 News his signatures are valid and it is unconstitutional to throw them out. He has filed an official protest of the clerk’s decision and believes the recall election still needs to happen.
