Back in the days of the late Richard J. Daley ("the elder"), who reigned in Chicago for over 20 years, the Democrat machine's motto was "Vote early, and vote often!"

But those were different times, or at least, more blatant times.....

This “victory” is clearly a result of Ballot Harvesting which was made legal in California. How else can one explain that the vast majority of votes which were counted in the ensuing 4 weeks after the election were for Bauer-Kahn? We all need to accept the results as they played by the very flawed rules which have been put in place in California. Given the fact that illegals can get driver licenses and are then automatically registered to vote, and the legalization of Ballot Harvesting which allows solicitors to approach them and help them vote, it is a wonder elections are as close as they are.

If Dan Francisco is a microcosm of what the super majority will do to the entire state, we are all in trouble!! Actually, the $200 billion of underfunded pension liability means we are already in trouble.

I have worked at the polls for over 40 years. In all that time I have never seen some of the things I saw it at this election. In the last four hours of the polls being open, and exceptional number of people came in carrying hands full of Mail in ballots. No longer is it required to be a relative or someone designated to drop in the ballots. I also know that ballots were stolen in the Windemere area. I can’t help but wonder what happened to those. we poll workers are not allowed to ask for ID or any other identification and it makes me wonder if our elections are as valid as they used to be.

The State Bar need to open an investigation into her falsely claiming on the actual ballot and in her campaign ads that she was a "Professor" at Santa Clara Law School. She has never been a "Professor" at Santa Clara Law School. Everyone associated with a university knows the difference between being a "Professor", which a university awards after years of teaching and publishing, and being a "lecturer" or "adjunct professor" which applies to those who simply teach a temporary or part time class like legal research and writing.

She knowingly used a false claim about her background to get an advantage in this election, and this also shows her lack of character. She needs to resign, and allow the Governor to appoint another Democrat to this position, someone with actual character who will not lie about their past to get elected.

Long Term Resident is spot on. With providing Undocumented Residents Driver's Licenses and then having a Motor Voter registration program, obviously tens of thousands of illegals are being permitted to vote. Theoretically they should be vetted as to their citizenship when registering, but I cannot begin to believe this is happening. On election night there were 7 or more Assembly, State Senate and U.S. Congressional Districts where the Republicans had small to substantial leads only to lose up to 4 weeks later when the provisional ballots came trickling in, almost entirely Democrat.

The Peoples Republic of California has devolved into a one-party Soviet style state where the Democrats control all the state wide offices and have supermajorities in both houses. The fox is, indeed, in control of the henhouse. There is no-one left to monitor the fraud. Watch your pocketbooks: Our already highest State Income Tax rate in the nation is in danger of going up more and there is talk of overturning Prop. 13. Severely higher taxes will be needed to fund Single Payer and the super train to nowhere. I'm sure Liberals reading this post will say, "if you don't like it, move." That works to their benefit, less Republicans, what few are left, to deal with.

This is all very suspicious to me. Catharine Baker served her district well and is appreciated by her constituents. She was well ahead of Bauer-Kahan on election day, but a week or so later a flood of absentee ballots come in for Bauer-Kahan. I hope Mrs. Baker does not give up, and runs again. I'm saving her yard sign if she chooses to run again in two years or for another state office.

Let me be the outlier here and congratulate Bauer-Kahan on her victory. There were a lot of people who could have overlooked Baker's voting records because she's otherwise decent, but decided they could not in conscience vote 'R' for anyone because of the larger national situation.

The sour grapes here are typical of the comment board here, which is skewed wildly away from actual election results towards the older, cranky crowd.
