For all of us who have watched the Democrats manipulate the laws and rules governing this Recall, this news is particularly schadenfraudeliscious

From POLITICO:

Gov. Gavin Newsom will appear on recall ballots without his Democratic Party label after losing a last-minute legal fight Monday.

Newsom’s team had scrambled to correct an error that will now deprive him of his party preference on ballots for the Sept. 14 recall. Newsom sued Secretary of State Shirley Weber in late June, arguing that the law imposes a needlessly early deadline for recall targets to request their party designation and that voters deserve to see that information.

Throughout his time in office he has acted above-the-law as if he is not subject to California’s Constitution, the State Legislature and the will of the great people of California.

We do not believe the Secretary of State will put up a strong (if any) defense to the lawsuit.  Thus, we are seeking to intervene in the action to hold Newsom to the law.

Newsom well-knows the power of having a D appear
