SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The liberal group Our Oregon has filed an election complaint against a group seeking to recall Eugene Democratic Rep. Val Hoyle over her support for a gun control bill.
The complaint was filed Thursday with the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office.
It alleges that employees at gun stores where petition signatures are being collected are paid signature gatherers who have not registered with the state as required by law. The complaint also alleges that nobody can attest to the validity of the signatures because the petitions are sometimes left unattended on store counters.
Our Oregon wants the secretary of state to throw out the signatures already collected and refer the matter to the attorney general for potential prosecution.
The head of the recall committee could not immediately be reached.
