BELLEVUE, Neb. — A second recall affidavit has been filed against Bellevue City Councilman Pat Shannon.

That comes after a judge last month halted the first effort because the affidavit was handwritten, not typed as required by state law.

The Omaha World-Herald reports the new affidavit also spells out complaints against him, including that he “defamed a city official in open meetings on public record” and “refused to follow city code regarding property he maintains.”

The recall effort comes after Shannon was found not guilty of violating electrical license requirements for a building he owns. Also last month, the City Council voted to condemn and tear down an eyesore carwash owned by Shannon.
