For a year we’ve been exposing Newsom’s scheme to install his crony in the U.S. Senate. Finally, the media is taking notice. An SF Chronicle Editorial is headlined: “How California Democrats are conspiring to prevent you from electing your senator.”
But there’s an even more corrupt conspiracy afoot. Newsom’s allies are openly trying to manipulate the Recall’s timing to boost his odds of survival.
In truth, we should have an election date already. But in 2017 the Legislature passed a bill to change the rules and drag out the process. The goal was to save a Senator who was then being recalled.
Now, suddenly Newsom’s allies see the delays created by that law as unhelpful for his own Recall. They want it to happen after the June 15 “opening” date but before anything else goes wrong. So they’re simply pretending the 2017 law doesn’t exist.
In sum: they passed a new law to help win one election, and they’re defying that law to help win another. It doesn’t get any more corrupt.
As a result, it now appears we’ll probably be voting in September. Whenever it is, we’ll be ready.
