California MP Kevin Kiley (R-Granite Bay) on Monday condemned the questionable bill changing the recall election date against Gov. Gavin Newsom, when a fellow Democrat stood up and challenged Kiley’s criticism of against the governor.
âAs I lambasted Newsom in the assembly, a lawmaker stood up and protested that I shouldn’t be allowed to criticize the governor,â Kiley said in a blog post on his website.
“It’s getting too political,” said Assembly Member Adrin Nazarian (D -Van Nuys), referring to Kiley’s criticism. “It’s about saying as many negative things as you can about the governor right now.”
” I do not want that [Assembly] soil is misused that way, âNazarian said.
âIt was too much for even the president chairman, who sacked him,â Kiley said.
What did Kiley say that triggered Nazarian?
“We should vote in the recall at present,Kiley said. He discussed Democrats’ legislation of 2018 that amended California’s recall election law, extending the process by a few months to make it longer, rather than the previous recall process which was swift.
âEveryone knew at the time that it was a sham,â Kiley said. He explained that legislation was created to save Sen. Josh Newman (D-Fullerton), who was in the middle of a recall at the time. But Newman, to his credit, abstained from voting on the bill, admitting it would have been a conflict of interest.
“It was way too much to ask of Governor Newsom,” Kiley said. âThis trailer bill was negotiated by his administrationâ¦ apparently his own campaign helped, as they turned down multiple requests for comment from The Associated Press. And the bill will not take effect until the governor signs it. So we have the unprecedented circumstance where Governor Newsom, with the stroke of a pen, will change California law in an attempt to push back his own recall. “
This is where Congressman Nazarian takes issue with Kiley’s references to Governor Newsom, calling them “too political.”
But as Kiley put it, in the middle of the night, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed SB 152, “changing the timing of his own recall in an effort to suppress votes against him.” It is possibly the most corrupt act in California history.
As Kiley put it, “the legislature itself has violated international human rights standards by changing the rules in the middle of an election.”
âEvery kid knows the word to change the rules in the middle of the game,â Kiley added. “It’s cheating. And every California voter should know it: Gavin Newsom is cheating in the recall, with this legislature as a willing accomplice.”
