Republicans sue California Governor Gavin Newsom, claim his vote-by-mail order is “illegal power grab”

By CBS.com, May 26, 2020

Republican groups are suing California Governor Gavin Newsom, claiming his recent executive order to mail every registered voter in the state a ballot ahead of the November election is an “illegal power grab” that redesigns the election system.

The lawsuit alleges Newsom’s order is “less about protecting the health of Californians and more about protecting the electoral prospects of the Governor’s political party.”

The Republican National Party, the National Republican Congressional Committee and the California Republican Party are listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which was filed Sunday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California.

“In a direct usurpation of the legislature’s authority, Governor Newsom issued an executive order purporting to rewrite the entire election code for the November 2020 election cycle,” read the complaint. “This brazen power grab was not authorized by state law and violates both the Elections Clause and Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution.”

The lawsuit contends that the U.S. Constitution reserves for “state legislatures the power to set the time, place and manner of holding elections for Congress and the President.” It further argues that state executive officers like Newsom “have no authority to unilaterally exercise that power.”

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said Democrats are using “this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Gavin Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections.”

Republicans also pointed out that California has moved into Phase 2 of its reopening plan and Newsom himself said recently that Phase 3, which would allow hair salons, churches and professional sports to reopen, could happen as early as June. The GOP says Newsom did not clarify how his executive order will be “justified in light of such progress” in California.
