Hey there! Listen up!! This is what Fat Albert won't tall you on his Talkback rag!!!
Some of the most common criticisms of recall are as follows:
+ Because the election that follows a successful recall petition drive is a special election, the
process can be costly for the government entity required to foot the bill.
+ The threat of recall may intimidate elected officials, thereby affecting their independence and
the exercise of sound judgment on issues of public policy.
+Recall can be used for retribution against public officials who make wise, yet politically
unpopular, decisions.
+ Recall undermines representative government and destabilizes the political process by making
them subject to the momentary whim of single-issue agitators
