FERGUSON (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) — A group that has been collecting signatures for a recall of Mayor James Knowles III says it has more than enough signatures and intends to present the petition to city officials at a council meeting Tuesday night.

The names would need to be verified by the city clerk. If they pass muster, the City Council would be asked to set a date for an election. That would be forwarded to the St. Louis County Election Board.

The petition was a response to the shooting death of Michael Brown, an African-American teen, by a white police officer, as well as to various city practices cited in a Department of Justice report.
