Recall Petition Targets Metro Councilwoman

There are at least a few people, including the president of the local NAACP chapter, who want Baton Rouge Metro Council member Tara Wicker removed from office.

A recall petition was filed with the Secretary of State's Office Thursday seeking the ouster of the black District 10 representative.

She was the lone Democrat who voted last week to have the widow of white, Republican fellow councilman Buddy Amoroso succeed him on an interim basis.

Amoroso was killed earlier this month when his bike was hit by a vehicle.
