Eighteen states permit the recall of state officials Michigan is one. Recall efforts against two Michigan state senators in 1983 were successful for the first time in that state's history. The language in Michigan's constitution, however, is more typical and acknowledges the political nature of recall efforts: "The sufficiency of any statement of reasons or grounds...shall be a political rather than a judicial question." (Const. Art. II §8) http://www.legislature.mi.gov/%28S%282ikaejr2efysc555tcabie45%29%29/mileg.aspx?page=GetObject&objectname=mcl-act-116-of-1954 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
