The Democrats have gone completely insane.
The election of Joe Biden has spurred Democrats to push for every radical policy under the sun.
Now one state is pushing for a Stalinist law to punish dissidents.
The Democrats enjoy a super-majority in the California legislature, which leads to a lot of terrible policy in the Golden State.
The latest Democrat proposal coming out of California calls for the names and addresses of signees to recall petitions to be made public.
This move is a direct retaliation to the recall effort against Governor Gavin Newsom, which has reached its goal of 2 million signees.
CapRadio reported on the bill:
It’s being pushed by State Sen. Josh Newman (D–Fullerton), who was recalled from his Southern California Senate seat in 2018 over his vote to increase the gasoline tax, though he won the seat back in the 2020 election.
Newman says SB 663 would allow the target of a recall to access the information in order to contact petition signers and ensure they were not misled or lied to when they added their name to a recall petition. They could also help a signatory remove their name from a recall petition, if asked.
But opponents point out the measure opens petition signers up to harassment and intimidation.
“I gathered signatures, I talked to people out every day who were afraid to participate … because they were afraid their personal, private information would be disclosed” to Newsom, said Orrin Heatlie, the lead proponent of the effort to oust the governor. “They were afraid of retaliation and retribution.”
Heatlie asked Newman to withdraw the measure.
“This is a dangerous and reckless bill that would give the target of a recall access to all of that data, all of that personal info and it would stifle the constitutional process that people are guaranteed,” he said.
Newsom’s handling of COVID-19 – including violating his own lockdown restrictions to host a fancy dinner – angered both Democrats and Republicans, and his political future hangs in the balance.
Newsom isn’t the only reckless Democrat who’s facing a recall effort.
Far-left San Francisco district attorney Chesa Boudin, the son of Weather Underground terrorists, could be recalled after allowing crime to run rampant in the city.
Boudin is one of the progressive DAs backed by George Soros who simply refuses to prosecute the majority of cases that come across his desk.
Larcenies up to $950 are not being prosecuted, which has led to a massive increase in shoplifting.
Walgreens closed ten locations in San Francisco as a result of the widespread shoplifting problem.
California Democrats know that exposing signees would dissuade people from participating.
They know there are scores of activist groups that would make life hell for signees.
That’s what happened to people who supposed Prop 8 – a ban on gay marriage – back in 2008.
The Left is vicious when anyone stands in the way of their agenda.
Intimidating state residents is a minor annoyance for them.
