Posted: Updated:

In the wake of the Tucson tragedy, not everyone is thrilled with the job done by Pima County sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

In fact, some want to remove him from office.

Pima County elections director brad nelson announced this afternoon an effort to recall dupnik will go forward.

Salt Lake City resident Dan Baltes, head of Americans Against Immigration Amnesty, filed the appropriate paperwork, and can begin compiling signatures.

Baltes said Dupnik's comments on the day of the shooting spurred the decision to begin the process.

Only signatures from pima county will count, and baltes needs almost 91,000 to get the issue on the next ballot.
