California Republicans have planned multiple efforts to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom in the past, but the latest attempt could get an extra push because some Democrats are lining up behind the idea.
“We’ve gotten calls from Democrats who are already kicking the tires,’’a Sacramento Insider reported.
Newsom originally received praise for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, but his trust took a wrong turn at an expensive dinner he had last month at French Laundry while telling Californians to stay at home. It seems that Newsom is being two faced. It’s rather hypocritical for Newsom to say to stay home, but then go out and enjoy himself.
“This governor is his own worst enemy, and every day he does something more that puts him deeper and deeper into controversy, and he’s become a problem here in California. He shut down the fifth-largest economy in the world the last nine months, and every single person out there in California should be outraged by that.”
There have been dozens of attempts to recall a sitting California governor in the past century, but the only successful one was in 2003, when Democratic Gov. Gray Davis was replaced by Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger.
