CA: Gov. Jerry Brown hires goons to harass citizens collecting signatures to stop car and gas hikes

KOGO: 

Governor Jerry Brown and his political allies are using paid “goon squads” to harass citizens collecting signatures to stop the car and gas tax hikes.

Even worse, the Governor’s team is encouraging individuals to make false reports to local police departments!

The harassment is occurring in Orange County as phase 1 of the campaign to roll back the car and gas tax hikes is already under with the Recall Initiative filed against State Senator Josh Newman – the deciding vote in approving the car and gas tax hikes.

Over 63,500 signatures must be collected within a set time frame in order for the citizens to trigger a special election.

Official state campaign disclosure reports show Governor Brown’s political team has transferred $100,000 in the past week and has hired out-of-state “blockers” to target volunteer signature gatherers.

The blocking tactics include showing up in front of stores where people are gathering signatures and yelling at signature gatherers and anyone who shows interest in signing the petition.

Over Memorial Day weekend, “goon squads” of 6-8 people showed up at each store to square off against signature gatherers standing by themselves in front of the store.

  1. Well that’s what dictators do. His “GOON SQUAD” will never show up north of Sacramento County because they know they would get hurt. But in reality they know they don’t need to. Northern Californians votes don’t count and have no impact.

  2. We should make a Point of Debating them, to see if they’re even educated on the matter. Confront them- Get in their faces as that’s what they’ll do to others. We’re Smarter !

  3. I listen to John & Ken all the time. The big news is today the CA Nurse Union declared that the $4 billion per year health care program the Dems want to force on CA citizens will only cost $331 billion per year. Oh happy day!
