On May 15th, 2009 – Secretary of State Approves Recall Petition on Arnold Schwarzenegger

On May 15th, 2009, the  California Secretary of State approved the petition to recall Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Petition reads as follows:


TO THE HONORABLE California Secretary of State.

Pursuant to the California Constitution and California election laws, we the undersigned registered and qualified electors of the State Of California, respectfully state that we seek the recall and removal of Arnold Schwarzenegger, holding the office of Governor, in California.

We demand an election of a successor to that office. Governor of California.

The following Notice of Intention to Circulate Recall Petition was served on 4/15/2009 to Arnold Schwarzenegger:


Pursuant to Section 11020, California Elections Code, the undersigned registered qualified voters of the State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of the governor, state of California, and to demand election of a successor in that office. The grounds for the recall are as follows:

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has destroyed California jobs and opportunity, worsened state finances, and raised taxes on struggling Californians. The GOVERNOR WORSENED STATE FINANCES BY MASSIVELY INCREASING STATE SPENDING. The governor promised to reduce state spending and reform state government. Instead, he increased spending by over 40 percent, benefiting public sector unions and special interests, at the expense of taxpayers. THE GOVERNOR RAISED TAXES ON STRUGGLING CALIFORNIANS. Californians are struggling in the face of job cuts, pay cuts, and retirement losses. State workers enjoy job security, pay increases, and generous pensions. In order to pay these special interests, the governor passed the largest state tax increase in U.S. history – on struggling Californians who already pay the highest income and sales taxes in the nation. THE GOVERNOR DESTROYED CALIFORNIA JOBS AND OPPORTUNITY. Middle class Californians are fleeing the state because costly and burdensome state laws are driving jobs to other states. The governor promised to help encourage job creation by reducing costly regulation. Instead, he passed more job-killing mandates that are destroying California jobs and opportunity. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger must be held accountable for worsening the lives of California taxpayers, voters, and families.


And that is why, Mr. Arrogant S.O.B., you must go. Time to put an end to all your lies and deception. NO Arnold
