Just when you thought the California Democratic Party couldn't get any lower, it somehow managed to.
On June 29th California Democrats filed a lawsuit against three conservative college students from Cal State Fullerton for their support of the Josh Newman recall effort.
The lawsuit's intent is to stop the petition from going around and to stop the recall process, because the Democrats say it's been deceptive.
Amanda McGuire, Ryan Hoskins, and Brooke Paz are the three CSUF College Republican members named as defendants in the lawsuit.
They're apparently in trouble for volunteering their weekends to talk to constituents about Newman's vote for the car and gas tax, and how much money it's going to cost them.
“The lawsuit is a shameful and frantic attempt to silence voters of the district. The intimidation tactics espoused by the California Democrats should no longer be tolerated. It’s gone too far when college students are being dragged into court for becoming involved with the issues faced by their local cities. I’m proud to be part of the party that fights to fix our government on every level.”
Chapter Secretary Ryan Hoskins said:
“This lawsuit is the definition of frivolous and more than an obstruction of the very processes that every Californian should hold dear. By naming myself and my fellow club members as defendants on this lawsuit the California Democrats are attempting to scare us into backing down from this signature gathering effort. They will not succeed in breaking our spirit and, with the support of the California Republican Party, we will fight it in the court of law.”
Brooke Paz, Public Relations Director for the College Republicans, and Chapter Secretary Ryan Hoskins will joined us this afternoon to discuss this latest low move from the California Democrats:
