Default California Governor Violated the Constitution With Mail Ballot Order: Judge

Wow, this is great news! Governor Newsom is Nancy Pelosi's nephew, and an obvious corrupt member of the swamp. I wonder what this will do to the elections in California.

Quote:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom exceeded his authority and violated the state Constitution with an executive order that let all Californians vote by mail if they wanted to.

Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman ruled Friday that the order, N-67-20, “improperly amended existing statutory law, exceeding the governor’s authority and violating the separation of powers.”

The order stated, citing the COVID-19 pandemic, that “all Californians who are registered to vote in” the Nov. 3 election “must be empowered to vote by mail, as an alternative to in-person voting.”

Newsom, a Democrat, argued that California’s government code gave him the power to issue orders like the one concerning mail ballots, but the judge was not convinced.

The legislative branch makes laws, Heckman said in the 9-page ruling, while the governor and the executive branch sees that laws are faithfully executed.

“The Governor may not exercise legislative powers unless permitted by the Constitution. Article V, Section 1 of the California Constitution does not grant the Governor the power to exercise those functions which have been given to the Legislature, absent the Legislature’s delegation of a portion of its legislative authority to such executive officials or entities through statutory enactments,” the judge ruled.

The ruling voided Newsom’s June order. It also clearly stated that the governor doesn’t have the power to amend laws or make new laws, about a week after the judge said California’s governor cannot do so but can issue orders.https://www.theepochtimes.com/califo...g-2020-11-15-1

In answer to your question, it has no impact on the election. The California legislature passed legislation implementing universal mail-in voting in June, rendering the dispute over Newsom’s order effectively moot. As for the first part of your comment, Newsom isn’t Pelosi’s nephew.

this is why we are a democratic republic not a straight up democracy.
when there is an emergency, a duly elected executive will issue orders to deal with it and protect the people.

bravo to the good small 'r' republican, Governor Newsome!
