recall process

A Chicago-area lawmaker is pushing for a measure allowing the city's mayor to be recalled. Now some want to take it a step further. 

Democratic State Sen. Napoleon Harris of Harvey says he’s introducing a plan to:

"...make sure that everyone was held accountable, no matter what level of government that you're in. This goes for county, township, alderman, everyone."

A Republican is sponsoring a similar plan.

New recall proposals include one that would only apply to Chicago's mayor.

The recall election which Wisconsin's Republican governor survived Tuesday is a rare occurrence in the United States. Not even half the states have such a process.

Illinois only recently approved procedures to recall a sitting governor, but observers say it wouldn't be easy to do.
