Why the heck does Newsom get to continue making appointments like he's governor? Doesn't anyone care that the votes for the recall haven't been completely counted and certified? He could still lose the recall. Shouldn't he be forced to wait until October 22nd when the vote is certified? Fraud. Fraud. Fraud.

    Any sitting governor may continue to make appointments while in office and throughout his or her term. As has been the case with both Democratic and Republican governors in the past, in CA and elsewhere. As far as your comment regarding recall the recall, there are not enough outstanding votes from registered voters to make a difference anyway.

      I know right? Self-awareness is not in the ol' right-wingnut toolbelt.

    No. No he can't possibly lose at this point. Unless the "Pence Plan" is invoked.

      The first comment is exactly what is wrong with the GQP.
      Total ignorance when it comes to process.
      Different rules for GQP vs Dems. Eg. Obama wanting to appoint a Scotus judge (8 or 10 months I think left in his final year) vs Trumpy and Moscow Mitch pushing through a appointment in the final days.
      Oh and when they lose cry fraud, and make it harder to vote.
      We are fast becoming a model for those sh*thole countries that trumpy so hated.

    You're like that lone Japanese soldier still hiding out on some small Hawaiian island, unaware the war is 60 years over... clutching to your rifle to fend off the round eye.

    I think you should cancel your Cable TV access.
