Recall effort against Cowboys for Trump founder lags


Associated Press

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Time is running out for a recall effort aiming to kick the founder of Cowboys for Trump out of office as a county commissioner in southern New Mexico. Supporters of the petition drive in Otero County say they still need to collect several hundred additional signatures by next Wednesday to trigger a recall election against Couy Griffin. The petition accuses Griffin of failing to attend commission meetings, using his elected position for personal gain in promoting a support group for former President Donald Trump and violating state restrictions on gifts to public officials. Griffin says a recall would only empower the state’s Democratic governor and undermine local conservative values.
