How many signatures is the latest effort to recall Bobby Jindal falling short? So far only 907,945:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — An effort started six months ago to recall Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal has fizzled, but the Opelousas man behind the petition will continue trying to oust the governor by running against him this fall.

Ron Ceasar would have needed to gather more than 908,000 signatures by early next week to get a recall election against Jindal. The Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office says 55 signatures have been registered so far.

The recall effort took the wrong approach in collecting signatures. He should have told people the petition was to ban conservative talk radio and he might have gotten more than 55 people to sign it.
