Rather than focus on winning elections by recruiting quality candidates who have a message that resonates with voters, California Republicans continue to bleat like sheep about election rules.
As if changing the rule would make them any less irrelevant in California policy-making.
That explain’s Jon Coupal’s latest hand-wringing in the Orange County Register.
Coupal writes that “failing to learn the lessons of the past, the Legislature and the governor decided to change the rules for recall elections, enacting SB96 as a last-minute budget “trailer” bill.”
Coupal’s meal ticket, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association sued to get SB96 overturned as unconstitutional.
So the Democrats who dominate the Legislature simply passed a new law, SB117, that worked around the judge’s objections and reinstated the new recall procedures.
As a result, lazy California Republicans lose again.
