LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former Nevada Republican Assemblyman is part of a petition seeking to recall Democrat state Sen. Joyce Woodhouse.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2wMc78P ) Stephen Silberkraus, his wife Chelyn Sawyer and a Henderson resident filed a recall petition with the Nevada secretary of state’s office on Aug. 2. Under Nevada law, petitioners do not need to specify their reason for submitting a recall petition.

Silberkraus did not respond to requests seeking comment on Wednesday.

The petition needs to garner signatures from 25 percent of the voters who cast a ballot in the Senate District 5 in 2016 to push for a special election.

Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford denounces the effort in a statement from the Democratic caucus calling it a “pitiful attempt to subvert the will of voters.”
