The effort to recall St Tammany Parish Cornoner Peter Galvan is now officially on the clock.
The group Concerned Citizens of St Tammany has 180 days to get a third of the parish’s registered voters to sign a petition forcing the recall election.
Galvan is accused of lavish spending at the coroner’s office at tax payers’ expense.
In March, the St Tammany Parish Council passed a resolution calling on Galvan to resign. Parish President Pat Brister is also asking the Louisiana Attorney General’s office to investigate Galvan’s spending as coroner.
