LAS VEGAS (AP) — A recall effort launched against a Las Vegas city councilwoman after she was accused of making racially divisive comments at a Republican convention has failed.
A group called "Expel Michele" filed a notice in June that it intended to circulate a recall petition against Councilwoman Michele Fiore.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the group failed to collect and submit more than 1,900 signatures due Wednesday.
The group says the coronavirus made it difficult to collect signatures. Fiore's office issued a statement saying the group's "baseless claims against her fall deaf upon the ears of the voters."
