As I reported on Sunday, the preliminary list of candidates for the September 14 Gavin Newsom Recall election was posted on the California Secretary of State’s website, and political pundit, radio personality, and late-entry candidate for governor Larry Elder’s name was not listed. I stated that this was not the final list, and no information was revealed on the Whys of his exclusion, but if things were not adequately cleared up, it could portend the end of his campaign.

We soon found out the WHY: Democrat “shenanigans” as Larry Elder called it. CA Secy of State Shirley Weber, who happens to be a Newsom appointee, decided that because Elder’s tax returns were not in compliance, she could disqualify him from the ballot.

Shortly thereafter, they shared the letter sent to my campaign manager with the media. Our lawyers tell us that no candidate has ever been previously disqualified due to redaction issues with income tax returns.

The Globe contacted elections Attorney Mark Meuser Monday about the letter Larry Elder received (below) from Secretary Weber. Meuser referred to California Elections Code 8903, section (b), and indicated that the statute on tax
