Effort To Recall California Governor Gavin Newsom Has More Support Than Ever

Citing pandemic restrictions and friendly court rulings, a group seeking to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom is asking a Sacramento court to extend its signature-gathering deadline by four months. In a 23-page argument, recall organizer Orrin Heatlie of Folsom and his California Patriot Coalition say Secretary of State Alex Padilla should be ordered to push back the deadline to March 17, 2021. The state wants the judge to leave the original deadline of Nov. 17 alone. “The ongoing restrictions imposed by the government in response to the Covid-19 pandemic have severely inhibited Petitioners’ ability to circulate petitions and gather signatures in support of the recall effort,” says Heatlie’s lawyer, Bradley Benbrook. “Many of the traditional places to gather signatures – shopping malls, sporting events, concerts, festivals, fairs, and political rallies – are unavailable.”
