The recall effort to bring down Gov. Newsom here in California is less than two weeks old and already has over a quarter of a million signatures. Citizens need to sign the petitions for the recall and succeed in having 1 million-plus signatures. This means we must go for 2.5 million, as many signatures will be discredited. Our deadline is February 2020.
Of course, should the movement be successful, then we need to figure out who would be a decent replacement?
Someone mentioned this man over at Facebook: “we’d better come up with ideas as to whom we are going to replace Newsom with. I don’t know if he would do it, but Sacramento’s retired Sheriff John McGinness would be an awesome start. He’s honest and been through the political machine.”
That poster had me at “honest.”
Do others here have any thoughts on this?
