Best Political Coup (2012)

Led by alarmed citizens who created Kelly's Army, residents called for a recall election and kicked out of office three council members who repeatedly proved they would back dirty cops even when a shameful national media spotlight exposed their disgusting ethical and moral warts. Any chance this army could move to Irvine and get rid of the slimy Larry Agran machine?
