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.

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
