Thanx for digging this all up. Shame on those who excuse breaking the law to win.
One more time if you missed it
“All of the out-of-state petitioners had an in-state Republican witness with them as the law says. The campaign has spent thousands of dollars making sure there was a witness with each out-of-state and/or non-Republican petitioner. I worked for three days as a witness. These allegations are ridiculous and they don’t understand the laws here. If they understood the law, they would mention something about the witness instead of make assumptions. This is obviously a political move as you said and it won’t go anywhere.”
The law is an ass. This is the type of garbage election law anyone could get snared by. Probably a dozen more anyone not lawyered up could likely violate. These laws are designed to let Democrats keep their one party hold on this state. Ratting out Schiff for a violating a law which is not malum in se but purely malum prohibitum wasn't a good move. It is petty and the violation of law is not the reason Schiff was turned in. He was ratted out because someone doesn't like his ideology. It's the type of thing Media Matters is famous for. It empowers Democrats and turned the GOP primary into a civil war.
