I read this report with unalloyed skepticism.
Los Angeles County reported Monday that over 27% of the signatures submitted on petitions to recall District Attorney George Gascón were invalid — after reporting that less than 1% of mail-in ballots were invalid in the 2020 election.
The county reported that it rejected 195,783 of the 715,833 signatures submitted, roughly 27.3%. The reasons given included that some voters were found to be unregistered; incorrect addresses were given; or signatures did not match those on file.
. . .
Recall proponents complained that they were not allowed to watch the signature verification process, after county officials said they were not required to allow observers since the petition drive did not qualify as an “election” under state law.
There's more at the link.
If you think that those petition signatures were honestly, fairly and openly evaluated; if you believe that the result of the evaluation is fair and honest; if you're convinced that the Los Angeles County electoral officials are pure as the driven slush . . . then I have a bridge in Brooklyn, NYC that I'd like to sell you. It's a real bargain! Cash only, please, and in small bills.
A few weeks ago I warned that "November 2022 will see electoral manipulation like never before". I've seen nothing to make me change my forecast: in fact, news like this makes me even more sure of it.
Don't expect the mid-term elections to save us. I fear they'll only confirm that we won't get rid of the fraudulent, illegitimate regime in Washington through the ballot box. Sterner measures will be required.
