Gascón Recall Effort Fails as LA Registrar Recorder Denies 200K Signatures

‘If this was my recall team, I’d definitely look into it – Something is off’

Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan announced on Monday that the recall petition of LA District Attorney George Gascon failed to reach the needed number of signatures, only garnering 520,050 of the needed 566,867 needed to be on the November 2022 ballot.

In July, LA Mayoral candidate and current Rep. Karen Bass said “My focus is going to be on the mayor’s race…I’m not going to be focused on the recall,” LAMag.com reported, and said she “then went on to characterize the chances the recall will qualify for the ballot as ‘doubtful.’”

When the second recall attempt against Gascon kicked off in January following the failed 2021 attempt, the number of signatures quickly grew. By June, so many had been collected that the safety goal was being reached and criminals in the County were so worried of it succeeding that many began asking for more plea deals ahead of such a recall being on the ballot. Around 716,000 were turned in by the early July deadline, with number of signatures widely being seen as enough, as previous petitions, such as the Gavin Newsom recall campaign in 2021, had only a 20% rejection rate.

“I wouldn’t say it’s in the bag or we’ll be complacent, but as far as public opinion is concerned, George Gascon is toast,” said Recall DA George Gascon Tim Lineberger spokesman last month.

However, on Monday, 195,783 signatures of the 715,833 turned in were invalidated, causing the recall petition to not advance.

“Based on the examination and verification, which conducted in compliance with the statutory and regulatory requirements of the California Government Code, Elections Code, and Code of Regulations, 520,050 signatures were found to be valid and 195,783 were found to be invalid,” said Logan on Monday. “Therefore, the petition has failed to meet the sufficiency requirements and no further action shall be taken on the petition.”

Of the nearly 200,000 invalidated signatures, 88,000 were not registered, 43,593 were duplicates, 32,187 were a different address, 9,490 were mismatched signatures, 7,344 were canceled, 5,374 were out of county addresses, with 9,300 being uncounted under the ‘other’ category.

Those against the recall attempt celebrated on Monday, with a Gascon campaign spokesperson saying “We are obviously glad to move forward from this attempted political power grab, but we also understand that there is far more work that needs to be done. And we remain strongly committed to that work. The DA’s primary focus is and has always been keeping us safe and creating a more equitable justice system for all. Today’s announcement does not change that.”

Gascon himself also gave a brief tweet, echoing similar sentiments.

  1. Understand part of the rejected signatures is a direct result of “Intentional Deception” of those who do not want him removed.

    Part of the rejections is a direct result of Democrat refusal to clean election roles and encourage non-citizens / non-residents / illegals to vote.

    Think this was a mistake? Think again. This is a rare opportunity to expose the Left for what they are?

    The political power grab is by Gasconites who would destroy the State and L.A. with graft and corruption.

    They saw the outcome of Frisco and were shaking in their boots. A twofer would have cracked the foundation of the Single Party Cabal in Sacramento, and given heart to the rational people left in the State.

  2. yeah, somethings ‘off’ in LA alright. It’s full of communist, Stalinist, fascist, lying, cheating democrats. They’re not going to get rid of this dem pervert. Democrats are the real “satanic evil” in America for the last 150 years! Slavery, blantant hypocracy, record killing of babies, record fuel prices, food shortages, men in women’s restrooms and sports, secret sex change operations on our children, militarizing and using the IRS and FBI to arrest conservatives in the middle of the night, trampling all over our 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments whenever they feel like it, taxes, more taxes, higher taxes, free speech censorship, spying on conservative government officials and U.S. citizens, CRT and faggot transgenders in our corrupt school system, record inflation, business killing regulations, open borderes, highest crime rates/shootings in democrat run cities, Quid Pro Quo, BLM, antifa, racism, fascism, white supremacy, KKK, segregation, Jim Crow laws, dishonesty, lying, cheating, communism, and sociopathology, and don’t forget voter fraud. Did I leave anything out?

  3. its funny how the same Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan will accept any and all signatures for the actual election of Gascon, but then goes thru the list with a fine toothed comb for the recall. My guess is that Dean Logan lives in a neighborhood that the criminals that Gascon has put back on the street do not operate in. Let’s see how he changes his tune the first time crime come to his street.

  4. Janet Dice says

    more CA voter fraud….it’s hopeless.
