Petitioners trying to recall state Senator Floyd Prozanski may have violated Oregon election law.
The Oregon Democracy Fund filed a complaint with the Secretary of State’s office yesterday. The complaint says that members of the campaign and employees of gun stores did not follow specific rules for filing a recall petition.
The recall campaign is one of several that were filed across the state after Oregon adopted criminal background checks for gun purchases made over the internet.
KBOO reporter Alan Montecillo spoke with Angela Martin with the Oregon Democracy Fund to learn more.
