This California anti-recall petition site advocates that anti-recall advocates "Engage the Petition Collectors" by suggesting that activists "Engage them in conversation; the longer they talk to you, the less time they have to collect signatures, they have a limited period of time to collect over 1 million signatures."
Here’s what California state law has to say about such activities:
California Law Code Section 18620: Every person who seeks, solicits, bargains for, or obtains any money, thing of value, or advantage of or from any person, firm, or corporation for the purpose or represented purpose of fraudulently inducing, persuading, or seeking the proponent or proponents of any initiative or referendum measure or recall petition to (a) abandon the measure or petition, (b) fail, neglect, or refuse to file in the office of the elections official or other officer designated by law, within the time required by law, the initiative or referendum measure or recall petition after securing the number of signatures required to qualify the measure or petition, (c) stop the circulation of the initiative or referendum measure or recall petition, or (d) perform any act that will prevent or aid in preventing the initiative or referendum measure or recall petition from qualifying as an initiative or referendum measure, or the recall petition from resulting in a recall election, is punishable by a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars ($5,000), or by imprisonment in the state prison 16 months or two or three years or in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by both the fine and imprisonment.
So here we have a group of Democratic partisans using methods that are specifically illegal under California law in order to stop a democratic process by California voters. So far the San Francisco Gate has even picked up on these activities.
Had this been a Republican operation to prevent the recall of a Republican governor, this would be front-page news nationwide. Of course, when Democrats are the ones breaking the law for a Democratic governor, it hardly warrants a mention. However, it is illustrative of the sort of tactics liberal activists are willing to sink to in California and elsewhere.
