Residents of Pacific filed a statement of charges against embattled Mayor Cy Sun about 3:30 this afternoon.
The allegations will go from the King County Elections Office to prosecutors, who will file a petition in King County Superior Court, said attorney Jeff Helsdon, who represents the Committee to Recall Cy Sun.
If a judge rules that the misconduct as alleged would be grounds for a recall, the committee will have 180 days to collect roughly 450 signatures to put the issue on a special election ballot, Helsdon said.
Should Sun appeal the decision, collecting signatures will be delayed pending a Supreme Court decision, Helsdon said.
Residents asked Sun to resign at a meeting in June.
