It couldn’t have happened to a nicer, oh, heck, there’s nothing nice about California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez-Fletcher (D-Evil Harridan). Since her entrance on the local political stage in 2012 she has wreaked havoc on individual liberties, economic freedom, and our state sovereignty.

That’s not an exaggeration. From AB5, to Motor Voter laws, to ballot harvesting, Californians can thank Gonzalez-Fletcher for not only ruining voting integrity and pressing her fat thumb on the election scales, but in destroying 4.5 million independent professionals, self-employed, and small businesses. All for Union gain and grift. Before entering statewide politics, Gonzalez worked for the Teamsters; actually, she still works for them, but skirts scrutiny due to a feckless California Republican Party and a Democrat Super Majority who allowed her to snatch power at every opportunity.

Enter Carl DeMaio of Reform California, who may have found a chink in her armor.

Gonzalez quickly took to Twitter after the story broke to claim she has not yet accepted the job – but provisions in the California Political Reform Act (CPRA) make that immaterial to whether she has run afoul of state ethics laws.

In fact, a state official who simply negotiates employment with a potential employer is covered under the law. Under subdivision (c) of Regulation 18747 of the CPRA, “a public official is ‘negotiating’ employment when he or she interviews or discusses an offer of employment with an employer or his or her agent.”

Oops. Gonzalez-Fletcher had her eye on running for the Secretary of State in 2022, and even launched her campaign. When Gavin “Hair Gel” Newsom appointed Secy of State Alex Padilla to
