El Paso County Terry Maketa has said he will not step down in the wake of scandal, but he could be ousted from his seat whether he likes it or not.

While a first petition to recall the embattled sheriff failed, a second one has been approved by the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office

We called Maketa seeking comment, but haven't heard back yet. In the meantime, here's the release from the clerk and recorder:

Resubmitted Petition to Recall Sheriff Approved

[Colorado Springs, Colo. – June 13, 2014] The committee initiating a recall of El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa resubmitted a draft recall petition to the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office for approval today. The recall committee’s new draft met all legal requirements and has been approved.
