Judge blocks recall attempt against indicted Washington state auditor

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/09/2015 - 06:59
By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - Washington state auditor Troy Kelley, who pleaded not guilty last month to charges of tax evasion and lying to federal agents, will not have to face a recall effort as he fights the charges, a state judge ruled on Friday. Kelley, a Democrat from Tacoma, has taken a leave of absence to prepare his defense against a 10-count federal indictment brought against him in April linked to a document-tracking business he formerly ran. Will Knedlik, a disbarred attorney and former state legislator, has led a recall effort against Kelley, but Pierce County Judge Frank Cuthbertson blocked that on Friday. Kelley, 50, has pleaded not guilty to charges including filing false tax returns and hiding stolen money both from the Internal Revenue Service and from those due a refund for home purchases or mortgage refinancing.
