Howie Carr list ping. Note the first comment:
Why is there more identity validation surrounding the process to recall a potentially corrupt politician than there is to elect one in the first place??

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Lantigua

>>Lantigua caused controversy when fellow lawmakers on Beacon Hill questioned his ability to hold the position of mayor and State Representative simultaneously in the midst of a citywide financial crisis..in April 2011 Lantigua was the subject of a federal investigation into possible corruption and other potential wrongdoing. This investigation was the latest in a series of bizarre events that have led to a recall petition to oust Lantigua from office after 15 tumultuous months...On May 11, 2011 Lantigua was criticized for receiving fuel assistance (along with his girlfriend, with whom he is currently living) totaling possibly $1,165, despite a combined household income of $145,000. Lantigua later returned the money, but still faces the fallout from the ongoing appearance of impropriety.
