California: Senator facing second recall attempt over support for bill restricting vaccination exemptions

Ant-Vaccination supporters have filed a petition looking to recall Senator Richard Pan (D), a pediatrician and the lead sponsor of a bill that restricts vaccine medical exemptions.  Petitioners needed to hand in 61,224 (20% of turnout) signatures.

This is the second time anti-vaccine groups have attempted to recall Pan. In 2016, they took out petitions (and didn't hand in any at the end) against Pan, as well as Senator Jeff Stone and Senator Bill Monning (D). The new petition claims charges of "high treason."

One of the lead petitioners, Austin Bennett, ran against Pan in 2018, though he did not make the final ballot. He has also been accused of airing "conspiracy theories about a mass shooting and chem trails."
