California governor candidate Caitlyn Jenner has joined a lawsuit seeking to get Gavin Newsom’s “Democrat” designation removed for the upcoming recall election.
Per Washington Examiner “Jenner announced on Tuesday that she and her gubernatorial campaign filed a motion to intervene in the lawsuit Newsom filed against California’s secretary of state attempting to get the “Democrat” label affixed to his name on ballots. Jenner said she joined the lawsuit “to ensure the laws governing the recall election are enforced and uniformly applied,” adding that California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, a Newsom appointee, “likely will not mount a robust, good-faith defense against Newsom’s request for preferential treatment.”
Jenner said “Throughout his time as governor, Gavin Newsom has always believed he is above the law. Whether it was when he shut us down while he lived it up at the French Laundry or when he prevented our children from in-person classroom learning while he sent his own children to in-person classrooms at a private school, this is another example of the hypocrisy of Gavin Newsom.”
The report adds “Last Tuesday, Newsom sued California’s top elections chief to get his party affiliation on his recall ballot later in 2021, claiming there was a mistake made while creating the paperwork for the recall ballot in 2020 that removed his party affiliation.”
“Petitioner is beneficially interested in ensuring that his party preference election appears on the recall ballot as provided in Elections Code section 11320 to ensure that voters are able to make a more informed choice when deciding how to vote in the upcoming recall election,” the filing read.
