California’s negative reality hurts Newsom

Two events last week had the potential for injecting some excitement into the lackluster campaign to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom. Both fizzled, which may, in a perverse way, help the pro-recall campaign. The first event was a “debate” among four Republican contenders to succeed Democrat Newsom, should he be recalled, the quotation marks implying that it wasn’t a debate in any rational sense of the word. The four didn’t challenge each other in any meaningful way, but rather took turns criticizing Ne...

‘Official’ ballot box battle from the 2020 election might spark a new state law

State Sen. Tom Umberg is confident that if the bill he’s pitching as a way to boost voter protections had been in place last fall, someone from the California Republican Party would be facing criminal penalties today. But as it stands, the issue Democrat Umberg hopes to fix — the clear labeling of ballot drop boxes — remains a legal gray area, with nobody of either political party facing legal problems connected to drop boxes from the 2020 election. The incident that got Umberg interested in the...

Conservative lawyers steal page from progressive playbook

For liberals, legislative defeats are just a temporary setback until the real battle begins in court.

Now, the Resistance has taken it one step further with 46 taxpayer-funded state lawsuits against the Trump administration.

San Francisco Permits Noncitizens To Vote In School Board Race

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will become the largest city in the United States and one of only a handful nationwide to allow noncitizens, including people in the country illegally, to vote in a local election in November. They are only allowed to vote in the city school board race, and the fear that their information may reach U.S. officials appears to be stronger than the desire to have a say in their children’s education.
