The recent salary scandals in the city of Bell has prompted an outcry from its residents, including members of a group called the Bell Association to Stop the Abuse (BASTA), who have just announced they are gathering signatures to initiate a recall of City Council members, cbs2 reports.

The effort to launch a recall got underway this weekend. The group's demands include the "immediate resignation of council members Hernandez, Artiga, Jacobo and Mirabal," and the "immediate resignation of other administrators making disproportional salaries as compared to their contemporaries in other cities," among several more.
