Topeka A citizen’s committee is seeking a special election to remove Shawnee County Treasurer Larry Wilson.
The group filed a petition Friday seeking the recall election, alleging that Wilson has not performed his duties.
The district attorney will have five days to verify the petition is legal. After that, committee members would have 90 days to obtain 31,395 signatures to force a countywide vote.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Wilson has been criticized by residents and county commissioners for problems with his office. A major source of contention is long lines at the courthouse to register vehicles since Wilson in February closed his office’s motor vehicle annex.
