The only question worth asking (and answering)

Will it work?

No.

Please do it quickly, He is destroying the beautiful state of California.

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

How can they do it? more than 50% of the people who vote say get rid of him.

which is somewhat likely, at a minimum.

Of course California blocked Larry Elder from appearing on the ballot.

California is in desperate need of repair, they must get rid of this "young-looking" old school politician that cares nothing for California. He is only spinning his wheels for a run at the Presidency.

Jerry Brown was a moron, just Awful, but Newsom has surpassed anything bad that Brown has done to that one beautiful State. But yes, Newsom needs to go if people really want to salvage what’s left of California. Big tech is already making a life miserable in that state, the governor doesn’t have to pile on to that effort.

California before, Sun, sand, and surf. California under Newsom, Sun, filth and homelessness.

all this Dem nonsense about voter rights for minorities, yet Dems block the Black conservative guy from even being listed on the ballot.

you cant make this stuff up.

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

Just another example of a Dem-led state that is going down the drain.

Cuomo should be next--or first.

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

yet Dems block the Black conservative guy from even being listed on the ballot.

He didn't properly submit the required tax information, which is necessary in order to run in California.

There are 40 million people in California…..a state with the fifth largest economy in the world, twice the size of Russia…and now has a $76 BILLION surplus. Do you REALLY think they are going to recall Newsom? Get real.

Yeah, you're probably right. Would never happen in California because of its size, and economy.

Oh wait . . .. Gray Davis anyone?

I'll be back!

"We filed redacted AND unreacted returns--over 200 pages of 5 years of tax returns.

So they are saying either the redacted version or the unredacted version was “incomplete.”

--Larry Elder

He didn't properly submit the required tax information, which is necessary in order to run in California.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

California Elections Code 8903, section (b), which says:

The Secretary of State shall review the redacted copy of each tax return submitted by the candidate to ensure that the redactions comply with subdivision (a). If the Secretary of State determines that the candidate has redacted information other than that permitted by subdivision (a), the Secretary of State shall prepare a new version of the tax return with only the redactions permitted by that subdivision.

Says nothing about the ability for removing a candidate from the ballot. California doesnt even follow their own statute and when questioned, just arrogantly says "sue us". Same law they tried to use to say Trump couldnt be on the ballot, was partially overturned as not legal.

California is a VERY divided state, with those on the right REALLY on the right and those on the left REALLY on the left. But leftists outnumber rightists, so the only chance the latter has to gain the governorship is the recall, hoping most leftists will call it BS and stay home. You'll notice the left has never called for one. Guess this will become perennial, like fire season, with some fault found in a Dem incumbent and a recall held like the roll of the dice.

Newsom has the homeless vote in his pocket.
