Former Congressman Issa Sues California Over Mail-In Ballots

The GOP’s new evil tactic to suppress the vote.

Former Congressman Issa Sues California Over Mail-In Ballots

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) — Joining the chorus of Republicans condemning mail balloting ahead of the November election, former Congressman Darrell Issa on Thursday sued to halt California Governor Gavin Newsom’s order requiring all registered voters receive absentee ballots.

Issa claims the Democratic governor’s Covid-19 safeguard to deter crowding at voting sites exposes local elections — including the congressional district he’s hoping to win-to post-election lawsuits. In a federal lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of California, Issa casts the executive order as an unconstitutional maneuver that rips local control from county election officials.

He says he's suing because it violates the Constitution and represents an “unlawful attempt to supersede and replace California election law” by creating “an entirely new system” that does not conform with an existing state law, the Voter’s Choice Act, which lays out requirements for counties that wish to mail ballots to all voters."

In the Politico article, the real reason comes out. Issa registered to run under the electoral system pre-COVID-19 and by changing to an all mail-in ballot it will require him to change his election strategy increasing the cost of his campaign.

Issa is, as usual, blowing smoke out of his ass. In the 2018 general election, mail ballots accounted for 65.31% of the statewide ballots cast. In San Diego County, where Issa is running, mail ballot votes accounted for 70.3% of the ballots cast so if Issa had been paying attention, he'd have seen these figures before claiming they were going to adversely impact his campaign.

As for the violation of the Constitution, the court will have to determine if there is a violation of the California Voter's Choice Act.

Issa is a punk criminal...hell, all cons are now...all of them are traitors and killers.

What happens if Putin's employees Moscow Mitch and the traitor are able to bankrupt blue states like CA?

No police...no fire-persons...no teachers...no what else? Long list, think of the CHAOS and violence that will ensue, EXACTLY what these TRAITORS want.
