California: Group threatens Attorney General with recall if gas tax repeal fails
Conservative radio host Carl DeMaio is threatening to launch a recall of Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) if Proposition 6, the repeal of a gas tax increase, fails. DeMaio was a leader of the successful recall effort against State Senator Josh Newman. It is not clear how many signatures a recall of Becerra would take, but there is a great chance that it would be more than any recall has ever needed to get on the ballot in US history. (It would be 12% of turnout in the November election, which is likely to be higher than the 2002 Gubernatorial election that set the number for Gray Davis).
