Dispute In Payson May Settle Confusing Arizona Recall Laws

There’s a legal battle going on in the northern Arizona town of Payson that you might not have heard about.

It all started with an effort to force a recall election of Payson Mayor Tom Morrisey, and now the case may end up settling a longtime quirk in the state's laws concerning recalls.

It gets a little convoluted, so to explain it all, The Show turned to Alexis Bechman, editor-in-chief of the Payson Roundup.
