Voters in one Massachusetts town voted on Tuesday to remove their mayor from office, while also voting to elect him to replace ... himself, WPRI-TV reports.
Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia was arrested in October on nine counts of wire fraud and four counts filing false tax returns for his smartphone app company, SnoOwl. Correia pleaded not guilty.
Also running in the recall were Paul Coogan, Joe Camara, Kyle Riley and Erica Scott-Pacheco.
"Out of the 29 precincts, 61% of voters chose to recall Correia while 38% voted to keep him in office," WPRI reported. "In the recall election, Correia received 35% of the vote while runner-up Coogan received 33% of the vote."
