A group trying to expel Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon announced on Thursday that it would set up a new political committee to update the recall process.
Citing a spokesman for the campaign, the LA Times reported that Gascon’s recall efforts had collected only 200,000 signatures, but by October 26, about 580,000 were needed.
The group said the organizers from the first attempt had to navigate “pandemic obligations” and “premature start”. According to the group’s statement, the resumption will allow organizers to obtain the necessary financial investment prior to the signature collection phase.
According to the statement, the Commission will soon submit an updated petition to the Los Angeles County registrar.
