Newman recall is the hapless #CAGOP’s only option

Republicans are mad about the California gas tax, and they’re taking it out on freshman lawmaker Josh Newman.

He’s being targeted essentially for doing his job.

His job, that is, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers when they created a republican form of democracy. Not a direct democracy — not all the time, at least — but a republic where voters elect representatives to make government decisions for them.

State Sen. Josh Newman (D-Fullerton) was exercising his delegated constitutional power when he voted for a gas tax increase to pay for fixing California’s sorry roads.
