Recall Petition Count Distorted By Proponents’ Deceptive Tactics

Recall Petition Count Distorted By Proponents’ Deceptive Tactics

Sacramento, CA – The campaign opposed to the recall of State Senator Josh Newman (SD 29) released the following statement from Senator Newman after the Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino County Registrars of Voters made their latest signature verification report:

"Today’s reporting by the Registrar Offices does nothing to change the fact that the recall proponents collected signatures by lying to voters in blatant violation of the law.

“Thousands of voters have asked to have their names removed from the petition after learning they’d been lied to. The Registrar’s signature count reflects nothing more than a massive flaw in the recall system that has allowed paid, out-of-district special interests to trick voters into signing an intentionally misleading petition.

“Just over half a year ago, the voters of this district chose me to deliver principled leadership and aggressive advocacy for them in Sacramento. This is exactly what I’ve been doing since taking office, and I firmly believe they’ll see the truth beyond this cynical and underhanded recall effort.”
