California Secretary of State Alex Padilla (D) responded Sunday evening to Republicans' lawsuit against the state to block Gov. Gavin Newsom's (D) recent vote-by-mail order, suggesting the move is a "political smear campaign" by President Donald Trump, created to use the Chinese coronavirus pandemic for voter suppression. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary.
Three Republican groups have sued Gov. Gavin Newsom over his executive order to send mail-in ballots to California's 20.6 million voters in November.
"Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom's executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections", said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement.
The lawsuit also labels the move as an illegal power grab, which was not authorized by state law and violates both the Elections Clause and Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
Biery ruled in favor of the local Democratic Party, though that order was put on hold after the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to review the case.
'In a direct usurpation of the legislature's authority, Governor Newsom issued an executive order purporting to rewrite the entire election code for the November 2020 election cycle, ' read the complaint, filed Sunday.
The RNC said that voting by mail creates an opportunity for fraud.
"Voting by mail is done outside the supervision of election officials, so that means they can't monitor it, they can't prevent intimidation and pressure on voters, and there's nearly no check on the system", said Hans Von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
The Republican Party is suing California Gov. Gavin Newsom over his decision to allow every registered California voter to submit a ballot by mail for the upcoming presidential election.
"Elections and the right to vote are foundational to our democracy", Newsom said in his May 8 executive order.
'No Californian should be forced to risk their health in order to exercise their right to vote.
"Mail-in ballots aren't a ideal solution for every person, and I look forward to our public health experts and the secretary of state's and the legislature's continued partnership to create safer in-person opportunities for Californians who aren't able to vote by mail", he said.
In a separate lawsuit in Texas filed last month, a federal judge ruled last week that state Attorney General Ken Paxton had offered no evidence when he made the same claim in an effort stop the Texas Democratic Party and individual voters from expanding mail-in voting in that state.
