The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a drive to recall alderman Michael McGee/Jackson has begun. The group organizing the recall is named “Friends to Recall Ald. Michael McGee Jr./Jackson”, and is led by ViAnna Jordan. The papers were file on October 3, and the group has 60 days from that date to gather 1,620 signatures to force the recall. ViAnna Jordan is listed as the candidate to oppose McGee/Jackson in the recall. Among the reasons listed for the recall:
- Fraudulent use of alias names to avoid responsibility for accident damages
- Incidents such as arrests for disorderly conduct
- Perjury allegations in a trial involving the mother of his child
- Slurs against gays
- He “has become an embarrassment to our community.”
Note: The Journal/Sentinel says that “he has been known as McGee his whole life”. That is not correct. He’s got a drivers license and a social security number in the name of Jackson. Therefore, he has also been known as Jackson.
