California voters were warned Prop 47 would be an absolute nightmare. I'm not the least bit surprised we're still talking about it.

Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta said Prop. 47 has nothing to do with California’s surge in smash-and-grab robberies. Liars.

Newsom and Bonta - both Democrats - are completely out of touch with reality. States that have the highest rates of crime are run by Democrats.

Criminals are opportunists and wait for openings. Prop 47 gave them exactly what they were looking for. At least Rudy Salas is one Democrat that isn’t afraid to tell the truth.
