Democrats Change Rules So They Can Win

Jun 14, 2017

Democrats in California raised the gasoline tax by 12 cents. It’s sparked a voter revolt in southern California. State Senator Josh Newman is facing a recall vote. Angry voters turned in over 30,000 signatures. So Democrats are changing the law affecting recall elections. The legislation would give any voter who signed the petition 30 days to change their mind and have their signature removed. And ten days to update their tally of signatures. Lawmakers would also have an additional 30 days to study the financial impact of the recall elections. Governor Brown is expected to sign the legislation. The bill is designed to affect the recall election of Newman, even though the signatures were collected under current law.
