Democratic Party Leaders Sue College Republican Recall Signature Gatherers Targeting Josh Newman (D-Orange County)

GOP and Dems duking it outDemocratic Party leaders are suing three volunteer College Republican signature gatherers after verbally assaulting them for taking part in a recall effort to oust California state Sen. Josh Newman (D-Orange County) and his high taxes.

The conservative college students managed to collect 85,000 signatures in support of a recall election, despite "goon squads" commissioned by Gov. Jerry Brown (D-Calif.) to intimidate voters - along with vicious threats waged by irate Democrats in the Golden State. Not liking their authority challenged in the predominantly blue state, Democrats have ramped up their intimidation tactics against conservative students through the court system.

"Sensing Newman's vulnerability, legislators changed the recall rules ex post facto (which will assuredly be legally challenged by recall supporters), and now Democrats are stepping up their attacks on people who organize dissent in the state - college students - or, more specifically, three College Republicans who volunteered as signature gatherers," Townhall reported. "The California Democratic Party is suing them, accusing them of lying to voters and saying that the recall would repeal the gas tax."

Pot calling the kettle black ...

The charges made by Democrats against the Republicans are considered to be the epitome of hypocrisy.

"First of all, that any California Democratic Party official or candidate would accuse Republicans of lying to get votes - and say it with a straight face - is a massive insult," Townhall's Jennifer Van Larr reported. "These are the people whose confiscatory gun control scheme was called 'Safety for All' in ads. These are the people who claim that sanctuary cities are simply shielding hard-working, law-abiding, family-centered immigrants from being deported. These are the people who call taxpayers 'freeloaders' when they finally get sick of forking over the highest gas taxes in the nation."

The motivation for the allegedly bogus claims against the red students trying to stay afloat in a predominantly blue state reportedly runs much deeper than what Democrats want most Americans to believe. Three College Republicans from California State University Fullerton (CSUF) - Ryan Hoskins, Amanda McGuire and Brooke Paz - and several other conservative activists are targeted in the lawsuit that was filed in the Sacramento County Superior Court ... a strategic court placement by Dems because the venue makes it extremely difficult for the students to defend themselves more than six hours away.

"This is about the super majority the Democrats currently hold in Sacramento," Red State pointed out before divulging what is really at stake. "If Newman is successfully recalled, they lose their two-thirds majority and won't have the power to arbitrarily and spontaneously pass crushing taxes and fees."
