Recall Election Results Might Be Implemented … Next Week. Maybe.

We know we’ve been sort of neglecting our duties in giving you up-to-the minute minute details about the still ongoing recall election business in favor of covering the, erm, perhaps more pressing elections [1] at hand. As in, the ones that haven’t happened yet. As in, the ones for which we don’t ALREADY KNOW THE OUTCOMES. Ahem.

But yeah, like we said, haven’t been covering the last trickles of the recall shitstorm in any great detail, so here’s a quick update: 

*The Mog re-refused to show that damn video [2]. Some crap happened [3].

*The Judicial Council opened up a case [4] against Dina Omar.

*Some more crap happened [5]. Michael Sinanian said this [6]. We laughed. We also cried.

And now, finally, it seems that the clouds may have broken. Today, Omar’s representatives and Sinanian reached a settlement (read: gave up), agreed to let the results of the recall stand and there was peace in the world … OR WAS THERE? According to the Daily Cal [7]:

Although Sinanian will not file any new suits, Moghtader has re-submitted a charge sheet claiming that the reasons to remove him given in the recall petition were not adequately specific.

He says the case merits a re-hearing in light of new evidence, including his video and the voter’s guide. The Judicial Council has not decided whether to accept the charge.

Did we mention that according to the recall election–which, incidentally, did happen–Moghtader was supposed to be removed from office, like, months ago? Did we mention that he’s been serving in the senate this entire time anyway? In the immortal words of the Spice Girls, “Will this deja vu never end?”

We’re not sure if the almighty J-Council is allowed to answer prayers, but maybe they can make an exception for us–just this once. Please, for the sake of the Clog’s sanity, put this madness to a stop! We’re simply not sure how much more of this our fragile mind can take …
