Petition approved for Oakland mayor recall

December 7, 2011 6:18:53 PM PST
Organizers of a campaign to recall Oakland Mayor Jean Quan say they're about to start circulating petitions.

The city clerk approved a final draft of their petition Wednesday. Approval gives them 160 days to gather enough signatures to put the recall before voters next November. They'll need more than 19,000 signatures.

Organizers are angry about how Quan has dealt with Occupy Oakland, among other things.

Quan has said she won't go without a fight.
