The effort to recall the Trempealeau County district attorney has succeeded on an overwhelming vote.
D-A Taavi McMahon was defeated by a former assistant in the office in Tuesday's special election. John Sacia beat his former boss by a five-to-one margin. Supporters of the recall had accused McMahon of failing to effectively prosecute cases. Sacia will face Republican candidate Rick Niemeyer in the general election next month.
