California Democrats Suddenly Care About Voter Eligibility

State election officials reject signatures at a rate 33 times higher than in 2020 election

Fairfax, Va. – California’s Secretary of State has rejected nearly 20% of all the signatures gathered thus far to force a recall election of Governor Gavin Newsom, according to figures released this week. Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement in reaction to this:

“Apparently signature verification only matters when protecting the Democrat elites.  California’s rejection of 19.8 percent of signatures on the Gavin Newsom recall petition reeks of corruption as election officials who oversaw one of the least secure elections in history suddenly are worried about whether i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.

“Her party is engaged in a blatant abuse of power. The predominantly Democrat election officials rejected nearly one-in-five signatures on this recall petition compared to rejecting just .6 percent of absentee ballots in the 2020 election due to signature verification.

“This is a bad look for the home state of Nancy Pelosi as she tries to eliminate all state voter identification laws. Now she wants the same system imposed on the rest of the country.  Hers is a system where the political elites in Washington, DC would have absolute control over federal elections across the country.  What could go wrong? Based upon California’s current example, you don’t even have to imagine it.”
