It would be awesome if this comes to pass. It would send a clear message to other dem. governors that they are crossing a dangerous line.

A campaign to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom is picking up steam after individual donors offered tens of thousands of dollars each and they scored $500,000 from an Irvine-based consulting firm.

Prov 3:9 LLC contributed $500,000, and Sequoia Capital's Douglas Leone and his wife Patricia Perkins-Leone contributed roughly $100,000.

Since 1911, Californians have attempted to recall their governor 55 times, but were successful only in 2003 against Gov. Gray Davis, who lost his special election to Arnold Schwarzenegger. That effort was propelled into the spotlight after Rep. Darrell Issa donated $2 million. After Prov 3:9 became the first major donor in the effort to recall Newsom, other big donors may step forward.

FORGET RED OR BLUE, GAVIN NEWSOM RECALL ORGANIZER SAYS EFFORT IS A 'CITIZEN TIDE'

Fed up with the Democratic governor’s shutdown orders, which some found erratic, Rescue California organized to circulate petitions that call for Newsom’s governorship to be recalled and a special election to take place, well before the next governor’s race in November 2022. Newsom, currently in his first term, has not yet said if he plans to run again.

Rescue California needs a minimum 1,495,709 valid signatures to recall the governor, and the group says it’s collected some 800,000 so far.

Thomas Liu, listed as the manager of Prov 3:9, told Politico: "We have our beliefs in terms of the direction the state needs to go, and we felt that this effort was worthy of our contribution."

The effort to recall Newsom was launched on June 10. In November, a judge extended the signature deadline to March 17, 2021, after supporters argued their deadline should be extended 120 days due to COVID-19 hindering their efforts.

Anne Dunsmore, the campaign manager and finance director of Rescue California 2021, told Fox News earlier this month that the effort was a "citizen tide" against the missteps Newsom had taken during the pandemic.

"Closing the beaches and closing the parks really was the beginning, that I saw on the ground, of the beginning of the end for him, as far as people taking the recall stuff seriously," Dunsmore said.

NEWSOM NAMES PRO-REPARATIONS STATEHOUSE DEMOCRAT NEXT SECRETARY OF STATE

Newsom received high praise for his aggressive approach to the coronavirus last spring, when he issued the nation's first statewide stay-at-home order. But the public grew weary over subsequent health orders that have shuttered schools and businesses and a massive unemployment benefits fraud scandal.

Dunsmore said things came to a head with the governor’s ill-advised dinner at the French Laundry in Napa Valley, an establishment that features a white truffle and caviar dinner for $1,200 per person.

Photos of the dinner – a birthday party for a Newsom confidante who also is a lobbyist – emerged showing the governor without a mask at a time when he was imploring people not to socialize with friends and wear a face covering when going out and being around others.

Harmeet Dhillon, co-chair of the Republican National Lawyers Association, similarly argued that the governor’s hypocrisy has fueled a general discontent in California that has allowed the recall effort to gain momentum.

"I think with a full three months plus left to go and with people all over California in both parties being very angry at the governor, particularly with his hypocrisy, particular with the fact that his children get to get educated and everybody else’s largely do not in most urban areas, these are the things that are fueling discontent here in California," Dhillon said. "The hypocrisy of allowing lobbyists secured exemptions – like film crews get to operate, but restaurants don’t get to operate – these types of inequities are really fueling the energy behind this grassroots movement."

Good point. However if gruesome Newsome does get recalled is their any politician in the CA sphere that could become Governor that is some kind of improvement?

It wouldn't take much to be an improvement. Schwarzenegger wasn't a Reagan but was a hell of a lot better than Davis. The peasants are restless and could easily go off reservation.

Because not just conservatives that hate him. He’s managed to piss off a bunch of middle of the roaders and even some liberals with his draconian and hypocritical covid edicts. A lot of blue voting folks with blue collar and other jobs like bartenders and waiters have lost jobs here.

He and his D list actress wife and her billionaire daddy’s money can go back to Marin and he can go back to the booze and coke and banging his other friends wives.

C,mon folks, just because he is a defacto socialist dictator, who doesn't follow the rules he imposes on others, he has told us that the nation and the world are looking to him, and to CA, to set the path for the future. Smile Roll Eyes Wink

The whole thing about covid patients being forced on the nursing homes, resulting in many hundreds, or perhaps thousands of deaths, must make many persons angry with the Dem overlords who did this.

I believe many now see him as extremely self centered and entitled. I wonder if the voting machines will be rigged to keep him in power. I am sure they were to keep Joe Collins from beating Maxine Waters, so anything is possible.

And when such actions were exposed, when Newsom was Mayor of San Francisco, his response was along the lines of "so what, I did nothing wrong".

He would be the second dem governor recalled in the last two decades. Amazing that the voters still don't get it.

Frankly, that is a real possibility. However, Gruesome Nuisance is so bad that we have to take that chance.

The Rose Bowl has been moved to Texas because of his COVID restrictions on sports and the 49ers had to move to Arizona for a few weeks just so they could play.

Texas has issued a Stay At Home Order for California.... Probably not true, but it sounds good.

Davis was never a big name. Post recall he was blocked from any kind of advancement. Newsome has a machine behind him and cutthroat ambition. Davis had neither. His name sums him up perfectly. Some dems are considering entering the recall game as a shortcut to the governorship. Newsome, if recalled, can run for one of the two Senate seats up next election. He appointed an empty suit to fill the Harris seat. He has options.

The California electorate has proven time and again to be stupid.

They'd have to look far and wide to find him, but I believe California is up to the task.

I believe the required number of valid signatures will be gathered and he will be up for a recall vote. That much is very likely but the necessary follow-up question is who runs against him?

Democrats hold every state constitutional office and there's no reason to think Democrats won't vote to keep him in office. Support among Democrats is strong because the voters like Democrats for their caring and free shit.

Who runs against Newsom? The former mayor of San Diego might jump in but there's no one with pop. Recall that when Grey Davis was recalled the possible replacements were Cruz Bustamonte who had the panache of a discarded used matches book and Darrell Issa. Issa wasn't going to get it even with his money because he was a convicted felon for car theft which led to him developing the Viper alarm system.

Until Auh-nuld went on The Tonight Show and announced his candidacy, there wasn't anyone to unseat him, at least not likely and today's opponents don't have zip or zing.
