KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A group pushing to add a recall provision to the Knox County government charter is flexing muscle.
The group RECALL says if the County Commission votes not to add the ballot question, it will gather the necessary signatures to force the issue.
Such a provision gives citizens an avenue to put an elected official out of office.
Two County Commission members said last week they'll ask the commission to consider adding the question to next year's ballot.
The city of Knoxville already has a recall provision.
