California: MY Op-ed in The Hill looking at the political optics of "recall is unconstitutional" lawsuit

A judge has tossed out the strange argument that the recall is unconstitutional. The suit was based around the claim that the fact that the replacement candidate could win office with less votes than the recalled official received in losing was a violation of one-person/one-vote (the Baker v. Carr/Reynolds v. Sims case line). 

I have the following op-ed in the Hill which focuses on the optics of this claim and just how usual this type of law is in the US.
