The second attempt to recall Portland Mayor Sam Adams failed last week, and campaign sponsor Avel Gordly says fear and a lack of money hurt the effort.

Even a last-ditch fundraiser hosted by Columbia Sportswear President Tim Boyle was unable to raise enough money for the campaign.

“Some of the people said they were afraid to make Adams mad because they have to do business with the city,” Gordly says.

Without enough money to reach the rest of the previous signers, the campaign ended up far short of the 32,183 voter signatures needed to force a recall election by the April 20 deadline. Gordly does not foresee anyone else starting a third recall campaign.
