San Bernardino city council caps a 3-hour budget hearing by grimly approving authorization for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection.

San Bernardino's troubles are well-documented: bankruptcy, high foreclosure rates, rising crime. Now a few angry citizens are trying to get rid of the entire seven-member city council, as well as the mayor and the city attorney, with a recall campaign.  

Six of the council members have been given legal notice, but the seventh  — Councilwoman Wendy McCammack — has been accused of deliberately avoiding being served with recall papers by a city recall group. 

With more is Ryan Hagen, a reporter with the San Bernardino Sun who has been covering the recall process.
