Tomorrow, a campaign funded by Columbia Sportswear Co. CEO Tim Boyle is filing a petition to recall Sam Adams, the gay Portland mayor who was caught romancing a minor:
Wednesday is the one-year anniversary of a press conference in which Adams told a packed room of reporters he’d remain in office. Adams admitted a day earlier to an affair with former legislative intern Beau Breedlove shortly after Breedlove turned 18. Adams previously denied having a relationship with Breedlove after 2007 rumors surfaced that the two had been involved when Breedlove was 17. ...
The recall group must collect 32,183 signatures by April 20. The city would have 10 calendar days to verify the signatures, then Adams would have a five-day period to decide whether to resign or submit a formal justification for remaining in office. If he remained, a recall election would take place on June 8.
In related news, Breedlove plans to capitalize on this whole debacle by writing a memoir.
