Luna Recall Effort Fails

A group seeking to recall public schools chief Tom Luna over his new education laws failed to meet a Monday deadline to collect nearly 160,000 voter signatures. The Committee to Recall Tom Luna needed to submit 158,107 valid signatures from registered voters to succeed in their push for an August special election.

But organizers said they had collected only about 50,000 signatures. Luna said in a statement released yesterday that his foes tried to make it personal.

Even if the group had succeeded in getting the measures on the ballot, Idaho law would have required them to secure at least 268,852 votes in favor of ousting Luna. That represents the number of votes Luna, a Republican, received last November when he beat Stan Olson with 60.5 percent of the vote to secure a second term.
