Senator Warner needs an eye opener for his flip flop on our Gun rights. How does one start a recall petition?

§ 24.2-233. Removal of elected and certain appointed officers by courts.

Upon petition, a circuit court may remove from office any elected officer or officer who has been appointed to fill an elective office, residing within the jurisdiction of the court:

1. For neglect of duty, misuse of office, or incompetence in the performance of duties when that neglect of duty, misuse of office, or incompetence in the performance of duties has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of the office, or

2. Upon conviction of a misdemeanor pursuant to Article 1 (§ 18.2-247 et seq.) or Article 1.1 (§ 18.2-265.1 et seq.) of Chapter 7 of Title 18.2 and after all rights of appeal have terminated involving the:

a. Manufacture, sale, gift, distribution, or possession with intent to manufacture, sell, give, or distribute a controlled substance, marijuana, or synthetic cannabinoids as defined in § 18.2-248.1:1, or

b. Sale, possession with intent to sell, or placing an advertisement for the purpose of selling drug paraphernalia, or

c. Possession of any controlled substance, marijuana, or synthetic cannabinoids as defined in § 18.2-248.1:1, and such conviction under a, b, or c has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of such office, or

3. Upon conviction, and after all rights of appeal have terminated, of a misdemeanor involving a "hate crime" as that term is defined in § 52-8.5 when the conviction has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of such office.

The petition must be signed by a number of registered voters who reside within the jurisdiction of the officer equal to ten percent of the total number of votes cast at the last election for the office that the officer holds.

Any person removed from office under the provisions of subdivision 2 or 3 may not be subsequently subject to the provisions of this section for the same criminal offense.


Evidently we just need to start a petition.

By my math, we need 359,815 signatures. I dunno how anything up above would square with getting him removed, but I bet it would scare him.

Im in. It sounds like a good thing for the VCDL to start up. Maybe they can get other gun rights groups involved.

Sounds like a great idea!!

Yep, it's a really good idea.

As a former citizen of the Commonwealth I was just thinking how screwed Virginia is with Warner and Kaine. Warner has already declared his support of an AWB and you can pretty much count on Kaine to tow the line for his buddy Obama.

I hope some group such as VCDL or other organization can get a recall petition going.

what grounds are you going to base a recall on?

Oh no! There you go bursting the bubble.

Sadly a quick Google search reveals that only 18 states have provisions within their constitutions for the removal of their US Senator. Virgnia isn't one of them.
