When the California Democrat party could not stop a recall by lying and cheating, they turned to the courts to sue the College Republicans.
Three members of the Cal State Fullerton College Republicans have been named in a lawsuit backed by the California Democratic Party.
It is being done in retaliation for their work to recall State Senator Josh Newman. He was the pivotal vote in support of April’s $52 billion gas tax increase.
The Daily Wire explains:
The Democrats’ lawsuit, which was filed in Sacramento Superior Court last Thursday, alleges that the College Republicans and other conservative activists “misled” voters in their successful signature gathering effort to recall Senator Newman. The suit names Amanda McGuire, Brooke Paz, and Ryan Hoskins as defendants in the suit, for volunteering their weekends to talk to constituents about the cost of Newman’s vote to the district’s taxpayers.
The recall effort gathered nearly 85,000 signatures in a matter of several weeks, due to constituents’ frustration and anger at Newman’s vote on the gas tax. The Democrat Party has alleged that recall organizers, which also included dozens of local conservatives of all ages, lied to voters about the true nature of the recall campaign by claiming that the recall would repeal the gas tax.
Brooke Paz, who serves as Public Relations Director for the College Republicans told Daily Wire, “This lawsuit is a baseless attack on the character of hardworking and passionate activists, as well as a shameful intrusion on the democratic processes that are my right as an American citizen.”
“As we just celebrated the 241st anniversary of our independence, my God-given rights are being threatened by the California Democrats simply because they disagree with me and my colleagues,” Paz continued. “Our elected representatives are supposed to govern by the people and for the people. The people do not want higher taxes, and as proven by the incredible amount of signatures we’ve gathered for this recall petition, the people do not want Newman.”
The Democrats tried cheating and lying after the state legislature realized that the recall petition was moving forward at a record pace.
They tried using a number of subversive methods to stop the lawful recall by the voters. Democrats, hold a two-thirds supermajority in both the Assembly and Senate. They also hold all eight statewide elected offices.
Togethet they worked to change the rules on signature verification, tried to alter contribution limits, and fought for legislation that would push the election further back.
None of that worked and they are fearful of having a repeat of the Grey Davis debacle which ended in Arnold Schwarzenegger in the governors mansion. That began with Davis raising vehicle registration by an ungodly 300%.
The left believes in winning at any cost. They live by an ends justifies the means mentality.
But the left in California has also pushed the state to the brink of destruction. How long until the voters have had enough? As businesses flee the state in droves, as well as good taxpayers, California continues to spiral towards the fate of Illinois. Bankruptcy is soon, which continues the massive bleeding.
Take California back! Sacramento is further left than most Democrats in the state. A recall of Newman just might be the beginning of that.
