Newsom Cheated


That Gavin Newsom cheated in the Recall is not in dispute. He did so openly and his allies admitted it. I said so directly in a June 28 speech on the Assembly Floor.

Newsom changed the laws for his own Recall right before voting. He moved the election date in the manner of a banana republic. He instituted all-mail ballots. He bombarded us with ads even the mainstream media called lies. His Secretary of State illegally tried to exclude candidates. 

He also sent voters $600 checks from the government, then asked them to return part of the windfall to his campaign. He used unlimited campaign contributions to call in $70 million from Special Interests.

The good news is all of this will be more difficult in 2022. And while the Recall vote was only for a one-year truncated term, next year’s Governor election is for a full four-year term.

It can be a wave election if voters are given a clear sense of just how corrupt our Capitol is. For instance, PG&E has just been charged with 11 more felonies; the utility has given Newsom $700,000 and received special treatment according to whistleblowers.

Our state needs leaders of integrity who will get us back to basics and reject the culture of corruption that Newsom exemplifies. Because I still believe California is worth fighting for.
