California Democrats Manipulate Recall Date in Effort to Salvage Gov. Newsom

California Democrats Manipulate Recall Date in Effort to Salvage Gov. Newsom

“Gavin Newsom and his enablers are changing the rules for the Recall in the middle of the game.”

The process to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is moving along quickly. A budget for the election now exists, which is less than initially asserted by the opponents of the recall process.

An analysis released Thursday projects the recall election against Gov. Gavin Newsom will cost at least $215 million, less than what elections officials initially estimated but a large enough price tag that local governments across California will need the state to pick up the tab.

Legislative leaders quickly seized on the estimate provided by the state Department of Finance as fulfilling a mandate under state law to fully assess the costs of the recall — potentially speeding up by some two months the special election in which voters could oust Newsom from office.

The speeding up of the election draws attention to those involved in the recall process. The previous recall vote of Grey Davis occurred in October of 2003. Most Californians were anticipating a fall 2021 election, which would give Newsom’s opponents time for potentially effective campaigning.

However, the Democrats are now targeting an earlier election. Some speculate that the move is to ensure wildfire seasons (resulting from progressive environmental policies) don’t impact the vote. Additionally, the shorted timeline may prove more challenging to Republican hopefuls.

And while no candidate can officially declare until the date of the election has been set, at least one potential candidate appears ready:

John Burke, a spokesman for Republican candidate and former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, said in a statement that “Gavin Newsom’s allies can schedule this election any time they like. Mayor Faulconer is ready and will win regardless.”

Other conservatives in the state decried the move:

“Gavin Newsom and his enablers are changing the rules for the Recall in the middle of the game,” tweeted Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, who is exploring entering the recall election himself. “They cheat in plain sight then wonder why people lack trust in our elections.”

“This is how elections are fixed in CA,” tweeted conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon. “Democrats pick a number out of a dark place, announce it, ‘waive’ an election law, & rig an election date around polling driven by governor handing out cash to people he impoverished. We scold foreign countries for corruption like this.”

The Los Angeles Times’ John Myers noted that the Legislature may have to pass a revised recall election statute in order to officially waive the cost analysis process. Of course, with a Democratic supermajority seemingly dedicated to Newsom in power, passing such legislation would not be difficult.

California certainly has one giant, dark, and dangerous swamp for a state with three deserts and many beaches.

“We scold foreign countries for corruption like this”

Why? Because they’re not as good at it?

    I doubt we actually do. In many/most countries the ability to pick the next election date is considered the rightful privilege of an incumbent government, and it’s taken for granted that of course it will use this privilege to choose the most favorable date it can think of.

      That’s how we do it in Canada.

    The truth is many politicians envy China and Putin because the power at the top is so absolute.

Alice in chains fits well
Ain’t found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Wife and kids, household pet
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere

Here they come to snuff the rooster
Yeah, here come the rooster
You know he ain’t gonna die
No, no, no, you know he ain’t gonna die

And this is without even dipping into the Democrats’ strong suit, i.e., blatant election theft through fraudulent manufacturing of ballots and the mishandling of genuine ones. They weren’t as motivated in 2003 to save Gray Davis as they are now to save Newsom.

We either need to fix California or build a fence.

The escapees are really driving up the real estate prices in red states.

    actually, they’ve played with it enough; it should drop off of its own accord

Even discounting the fact that this is the Peoples’ Republic of Alta California and no non-leftist will be allowed to win through the normal means of political corruption, now the newest cyber-methods of fraudulent vote counting and creating are the sole and exclusive property of the Democrat Party. Unless there is a purge within the Democrat Party [ probably less drastic than Arkancide, but one can never be sure] Newsom wins. The first lesson of 2020 was that we can no longer vote ourselves out of this mess.

    We’ll never ‘vote’ ourselves out of anything if anything resembling a ‘voting machine’ is present in any election.

    We really need to look backwards into recent elections: what we’ll learn is that these crazy Soros candidates (like LA’s insane new DA Gaston) was likely not ‘elected’ but put in place by manipulation of voting machines used in the election.

    This is not a ‘theory’ anymore:

    Was George Gascón Elected by Fraud?

It’s what communists always do when they know they can’t win honestly. Look at the 2020 election, changing the rules in the middle of the game.

How are you going to stop the cheat? Big money is behind Irksome with lots of donations. Disgusting to see them dropping money on the scum.
