Will mail-in voting be fair in 2020 election?
"National cochair for the Biden campaign. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Good morning to you. Great to be with you, Margaret. Thank you for having me. I want to start on the issue of voting because your state was specifically mentioned there by Rana McDaniel as having increased mail in ballots during the pandemic. During the March presidential primary, More than 100,000 mail in ballots were rejected by election officials, according to Data that had been gathered by the AP. Given that experience, doesn't that indicate that there are some significant gaps in terms of your state's election integrity? Democracy is not an easy thing, Margaret, of course, but I have a very deep confidence in our secretary of state Alex Padilla in our counties to be able to run elections in to run them well, and the difference is that we're trying to run elections that expand democracy that give the vote to everybody where we see a war on voters in other states run by Republicans who literally want to take people off the Ballot.

Something I think all folks from both the right and left have called for for years. I simply don't understand. Why this president fears this. It's probably because he knows he's going to lose on the

"FM in San Francisco and 89.3 of them in Sacramento. The time 8 22 It's morning edition on I'm Brian what The Democratic National Convention kicks off today, not in Milwaukee, as was originally planned, but Well, where exactly? We know Joe Biden and his running mate, Camilla Harris will be speaking from Delaware. But what about the rest of the convention senior editor for politics and governments got Schaefer joins us for a preview. And Scott. Okay, this is just plain weird. Right now. We're gonna do this. Well, you know, I think most people are going to be doing what we've all been doing for the last several months, which is streaming zooming watching TV listening to the radio. You know, it's funny because the theme for this convention is Unite America. Or uniting America. And, of course, no one's going to be united because of the pandemic. We're all going to be scattered across the country that includes the delegates. This was originally planned for Milwaukee on July 13th that week, and of course, the Democrats pushed it back a month to this week, And then a few weeks ago. They said, no to all the delegates. Please don't even come to Milwaukee. Just stay where you are. And so all of these things that usually happen at a convention, the meetings, the schmoozing, the party's none of that is going to be happening this year at least what the Democrats we're not quite sure yet what the Republicans are going to do next week. You and Marissa Lagos were in Philadelphia for the Democratic Convention four years ago. What do you think gets lost when everyone is not in the same place beyond the schmoozing and networking and hugging. You know, Brian, the most vivid memory I have from four years ago was day one of the convention Each morning. The California delegation would have a breakfast and on day one. I think it was the secretary of state. Alex Padilla spoke, and there was still a lot of hard feelings between the supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And during Padilla's speech, there was a lot of booing, and so you got this immediate, firsthand sense of all the divisions and the anger and that we saw that play out throughout the rest of not just the convention, but the entire campaign into November. And so that's less true this time around between Sanders supporters and say Biden supporters But you know, nonetheless, by not being there in person, you don't get to kind of read the room or take the temperature of the way we did four years ago. So what do California delegates due this week? If they're not there? To be upset that Sanders didn't make it or very, very happy that Senator Kamala Harris did. What did they do? You know, I think the Sanders people are disappointed He did win the primary in California in March. And I think they wanted to have more of an influence at the convention on the issues. They care about things like Medicare For all the green new deal, A lot of that is symbolic. Anyway, This is going to be about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris by and large, but I think by not being there, these delegates and the influence they would have hoped to have is really going to be diluted. We can't say enough about Senator Kamala Harris on the ticket from California. That's kind of huge, right. It is huge. I mean, it's the first time this has happened to California Democrat on the top or near the top of the ticket. If they win, she's going to bring all of her California connections and sensibilities on issues to the White House. A lot of people policy people in particular on issues like health care, the environment are going to be dusting off their resumes. And if they win, you know Gavin Newsom will get to name somebody to fill out. The rest of Harris is term so there could be a whole chain reaction of events if they do win in November. Senior editor for Politics and Government Scott Shaffer. Thanks a bunch While Kamala Harris makes history this week. Here's something else we're thinking about 100 years ago this week, the state of Tennessee ratified the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in the United States. So Chloe Veltman is bringing us the personal voting stories of a diverse group of VE area women who all share a deep seated belief in the Democratic process. We start off today with San Francisco voting rights educator and advocate Maxine Anderson. The thing Maxine Anderson remembers most vividly about the very first election in which she was eligible to vote was the machine. I mean, it was a really thick machine. It was 1971 and the clunky old lever operated voting apparatus hadn't yet been displaced by more modern voting systems where she lived in Chicago, You know Flip levers for whatever you were going to vote for is like, click, click, Click, Click Pull, and then you were out of the voting booth. Voting was a big deal for Anderson's family because it was a novelty for most years up until the time I was old enough to vote, there was no guarantee that black people Could vote in an election. The Voting Rights Act prohibiting racial discrimination in voting wasn't passed by President Lyndon B. Johnson until 1965 in many places in this country. Man and women are kept from voting. Simply because they're Negros. Their cause must be our cause, too. Anderson's parents grew up in Mississippi, where voter suppression was rife. Even though my father fought in World War two. His access to the vote wasn't there. She moved to San Francisco in 1978 for a job in the insurance industry. Voting technology had evolved to become more minimalistic. It was like the little push tabs where you punched out the little holes in the voting ballot, and Anderson's understanding of the voting process had evolved, too. Her family's history of disenfranchisement in the south and growing demonstrations against the Vietnam War helped her not only see the importance of voting, but also of getting to grips with the policies that shaped the voting system. It's the policies that make a difference. She got involved with the League of Women voters in San Francisco and eventually became a member of the league's local and state board. Every election, she says. She made it her business to deeply understand the voter guides read the ballot measures. I mean, really read the ballot measures. Anderson is concerned about the impact the Corona virus might have on this year's voting process. Mail in ballots are a way of keeping people safe, and she's frustrated with the current administration's attempts to discredit this method of voting. Thousands of votes have gathered and they're coming and they're dumped in a location and then all of a sudden you lose elections. If you think you're going to win, I won't stand for it. She'd also like more young people to step up to be poll workers to encourage vulnerable elders who usually do the job to vote by mail. Not that she plans to stay home this November. I have not mailed vote by mail in years, Anderson and her sister have this whole routine of debating the candidates and ballot measures around the kitchen table. Fill out the paperwork together, and then Anderson drops their ballots off by hand at City Hall. She says. She's got to get the I voted sticker.

"Well, there has indeed been number of changes made to that system in recent years all of them aimed at making voting easier and more accessible, but those changes have come with a side effect of making election counts. Also take much longer. And here's the thing. Those late breaking results. Well, they skewed pretty heavily democrat. Meaning that this time around number of house races. That looked like they were firmly in Republican hands on election night, gradually swayed toward the democratic candidate leading to what eventually did become that Blue Wave. We've heard so much about I'm keeping in Cody and today on in-depth we are going to take a closer look at those changes to California's vote system why they were put in place how they impacted the twentieth. Eighteen midterms and how California Republicans are responding to help me out with all that we have on the show today to excellent guests. I up when a welcome in David McEwan. He is a professor of American politics at sonoma's state university. David. Thank you for being here. Thank you for having me on the program today. We have Mike Madrid. He is a Republican political consultant and partner at grassroots lab. Mike Madrid to have you as well. Great to be with you. So to start things off let us I go back to that. Paul Ryan interview again with the Washington Post now when he was pressed whether or not he thought that the results were flawed. He had this to say, I just think it's weird. I mean in Wisconsin, do you know, we knew the next day. You know, he's got Walker my friend. I was sad to see him lose. But but he we accepted the results on Wednesday. So to be clear he is not saying that he disputes the results. But as you heard there he thinks that they're kind of weird. Meanwhile, California secretary of state Alex Padilla who is California's top election official. He has been giving a strong rebuke to Ryan statements over the past week quoted in the Mercury News. He said, quote, it should not defy logic. That. Election's officials are meticulous and counting every eligible ballot. California works to ensure every ballot is counted properly and every ballot is accounted for in the most populous state in the nation. This takes time. So to start off with let's take a look at that question. Why did it take so much time David McEwan? All right. So if you think about this kind of more broadly, historically, midterm elections have offered a chance for voters to change course, they often serve as a referendum on the party in power and certainly events over the last two years or so with the Trump administration with every California politician trying to run kind of counter or against Trump that in a particularly blue state, deeply blue state generated a lot of interest. You also have county registrar's or the conduct of elections in California. So many states across the country that are conducted at the county level, and so many many registrars go slowly with a high interest election mid-term election kind of a referendum on the imparting. This also. Led to a high number of provisional ballots or ballots that were cast at the last minute or by voters who lost era vote by mail ballot. You also have a number of voters in California who moved to kind of a third party that third party is the no party preference. Those voters who are not in the Republican party or the Democratic Party. You have many Burstein voters be California's also one of five states that really changed its voting process at this particular election and had this thing called av are automatic voter, registration all of this creating if you will some momentum to vote, but also making it a challenge for those that count votes as Alex Padilla mentioned, all right and just to make this a little bit less abstract briefly, those election reforms that we're talking about our measures like for example. Allowing mail in ballots to be sent in just a little bit later. So now the way that it works is as long as they are postmarked on election day and received by the Friday after the election. You're good to go a little bit more convenient there. Then there's another measure that allows for what is pretty close to same day registration. And then yet another measure raises the issue of so-called ballot. Harvesting we heard that term from Paul Ryan will dig more into that later in the program. All of this again meeting that there are just an awful lot of votes millions of votes, in fact, that just can't be counted on election day so turning back to David McEwan. That's a little bit of why the election took longer. Why is it though that those late breaking votes broke so heavily democratic well, obviously with California being so central to what is happening nationally in our politics. Democrats democratic interest groups spent a lot of money targeting specific Republican congressional districts, particularly seven to ten different congressional districts and trying to move the needle. And so that means that Democrats spent a lot of late registration and late geo TV or get out the vote efforts the last weekend of the election to turn out voters in key. Most of these districts are in southern California. Mike familiar with that campaign? But I think you also have to think about in your listeners have to think about the effects are not just say at a congressional level or a gubernatorial level or even in ballot measures the effects of of the slow count and this high interest election with new voters is really down ballot. So what you see in local races. What happens in school boards or for city council sore for county supervisorial districts that becomes absolutely critical, and that slow plotting count that goes on with different types of districts becomes an important element here that also. Along the the the accounting, and obviously leads to this kind of maximum thirty day, cert of the final results. All right. So let's bring Mike Madrid into the conversation. Let's zero in on some of the issues that David is raising the their what what is your perspective on. Why was that we saw so many of late breaking votes break in the direction of Democrats? Well, most of it is procedural as as the professor just pointed out, I think he's exactly right. It is an interesting data points to understand that more votes. Are counted. After the election day. In other words, there about a little less than fifty percent of the vote that are actually make up the final vote tally are those boats. That are counted on election day over half are counted afterwards. And this is a process that has been growing in California for the better part of about ten years. Now, the biggest bulk of those are those provisional ballots that were being talked about, but as we get closer and closer to same day, registration automatic voter, registration ballot harvesting concepts more and more ballots were coming in and different ways for the county registrars to actually have to count. And it's also having the unintended consequence of making old traditional things like election night parties, basically irrelevant. If you don't have enough data even know what half of the voters were thinking that night and election systems, probably as a communications point do need to do a better job of letting people know that we still as voters believe that will wake up early in the morning and who want races that's impossible, and it's going to it's going to become increasingly more impossible. But but I think secretary padeas, right? Well, we have made the conscious decision in California to incorporate as many possible ways of voting as we can think of and those different processes, especially those that occur late required. Time required. Time to process, they require the man hours and resources to actually make sure that we're getting every vote counted? And it takes it takes a number of weeks. A lot of this did have to do with some of the spending the targeted races. But a lot of it is just simply a function of of these new processes at a perfect example, Los Angeles County by far the largest county real is where the bulk of the late boats and late boaters came in. There was only one contested seat. One contested congressional race in LA county that has about thirty members of congress. So while there is has been a lot of attention focused on on all the money being spent and the tactics of certain campaigns. We are simply changing our building behaviors in the way that we vote as Californians. The processes are accommodating that. And we are now going to have basically election months where we are prosecuting county votes as opposed to election days since California has so many consonant special elections is just gonna be chronic electioneering. Which is exactly what Mike's talk about. Well, it just be constant business. Both of you. I imagine. So let's drill down again on one of the more controversial aspects of this election. So this year was the first time around where you could have somebody else Castro ballot on your behalf. Well, not the first time that you could have somebody cast your ballot on your behalf. But the first time where the the type of person who could do that for you was significantly expanded. So I think before it had to be somebody that was a family member. And in your household now, it's I I understand it. And correct me if I'm wrong, I think it's anybody, including a paid election campaigner. So this has raised the specter that you know, there are get out the vote workers that are going to people's houses looking for friendly voters getting their ballot and making sure that that ballot was cast. And some folks are saying that that had a very significant impact on some at least some district. Races. Mike, I'm curious for your perspective on that. How big of an impact do you think it made? I don't think it really had much of an impact at all. I think actually it's quite overblown for a few reasons the first is again, most of this. Ballot harvesting is very very new and having worked on on a you know, numerous campaigns and worked on get out the vote efforts to be able to exercise this kind of activity on the scale that would actually move the needle would be quite extraordinary. Now, I'm not saying this tactic wasn't used at employed effectively. I think in some areas it probably was, but it certainly was not the margin of victory in any of these. Contested races for the main reason that it hasn't been executed before I happen to be Republicans. That does not think that this is problematic. There are a lot of people who who do. Well, David May make the case for to me for ballot harvesting because I I really only became aware of this. As soon as I heard about the criticism of it. So what is the case for if we want our elections to be more inclusive? Why would ballot harvesting be something that we want on the table as a way to get out the vote, right? So if you look at kind of the the broader scheme, what's been happening elections across the country that there have been a number of efforts in terms of voter fraud, voter suppression, or I shouldn't say efforts attention to these types of shoes. Those tend to be battleground states, they tend to be these tend to be Republican led initiatives, but in California being such a blue state Democrats have been able to or have pushed for expanding the elect. You also have an electorate that's a bitch a-all, the habitual electorate or folks that vote in every election, they tend to be older wider retired more fluent that they tend to skew Republican. But again, it's a blue state, and then you have this kind of changing kind of narrative and a changing demographics. You have voters that are younger more urban tend to be more ethnic inner bit conflicted that they're registering in the middle there. No party preference voters. They're not going one way or another. And so they generally require more contact or more touch traditional geo TV traditional get out. The vote efforts haven't worked as well. And so we are entering a new phase where we're trying to expand the franchise and expand access to what's going on. But voters are searching for cues new voters need some help. So the idea of harvesting is to provide more contacts for that while we're expanding the franchise that presents a whole host of issues or whole host of concerns. And we might see these we've seen these concerns represented in the past when we look at things like signing ballot measure petitions on your phone or getting involved electrically. There's a lot of electoral security concerns that are raised by not just the out party by Republicans but by academics, and researchers that pay close attention to this and California's gonna face these issues as we begin to expand the electorate and expand how we vote similar.

This escalated quickly. I'm wondering if the woman who was beat up is white. It's hard to tell and she may be made a derogatory comment to these girls who were black. I don't know what set them off, but man alive. Yeah. I'm seeing this video this is all bad horrible horrible, people got to keep it together out there, folks. That's where he got us case for morning show. Ballot harvesting. So let me tell you a little bit about this. Paul Ryan is the outgoing speaker of the house is, you know, so we're talking to house of representatives of DC. So he's in an interview yesterday with the Washington Post, and he's talking about the election. And he says is still basically said I'm still bewildered by what went down to California. And so are we? It was like, you know, one two three weeks after the election. They're still counting ballots and all of these races, and all of the Republicans pretty much just smeared in the state with with with the exception of a few, but altogether. It was. Let me see here. How many races in California ended up flipping? I think it was five six there were six seats that were held by Republicans in the state of California that were flipped and some of these took weeks to figure out. And I've wondered about this. I've never seen this before. How could these racist? Be that close. What's what's going can't they count the ballots quicker will now we know so Ryan's talk about this. He says, quote, it defies logic to me. We had a lot of wins that night and that three weeks later, we lost basically every contested California race this election system. They have I can't begin to understand what ballot harvesting is. So I'm thinking, well, I don't even know about harvesting is so ballot harvesting is it's a law that was passed in California in twenty sixteen. After the election. It was passed in two thousand sixteen signed by governor Jerry Brown, and it allows a third party to collect ballots from voters and then hand them over to election officials. So it was legal for the first time for this election in California this year, it totally passed through are simply pass through the Senate signed by governor Brown there were not enough Republicans to stop it was the they own the system game set match. So. Ryan's talking about this the Washington Post, Alex Padilla secretary of state here is about it. That says, hey speaker Ryan in California, we make sure every ballot is properly candidate academy for that's not bizarre. That's democracy. That's cheating. That's fraud. Is what that is. I approve I'll prove it up. I'll tell you why we believe it's fraud in just a moment. So Democrats flipped six house seats. Outstanding ballots. Most of California's outstanding ballots were those received by mail or received after election day. So that's what they were counting up ballots that were received by mail ballots received after election day somewhere provisional ballots somewhere ballots of people who registered on the same day. So you can do that in California you can register that day to vote. Same day, registration and. Ryan said this when you win the absentee ballots, and you win the in person vote where I come from you win the election. And so that's what you would think. Eight okay, all the way absentee ballots have been counted all the in person votes have account you win. And that's how it was for all these Republicans. But then, oh, we'd have more more votes. Come in more. What we got these these these boxers these bugs? That's what happened in Orange County. The number of election day vote by mail drop-offs was two hundred fifty thousand so that's on election day. Votes that were just dropped off. Oh, wait. I got a box of these. Now where are these coming from these are coming from harvesters harvesters? So I mean in in my book, a lick election vote voter fraud is not a new tool in the toolbox of the Democrats. And now with these recent changes in the California's ballot harvesting, California's an attractive target for Democrats to easily influence or steal a few seats. So let's go down to the twenty fifth district in California. Some of your saying, where's that southern California Palmdale area? It was represented by a Republican. For the last two terms. Steve Knight has been the Republican Representative in Palmdale. He was challenged by a new cover called, Katie hill. So now this woman comes out a woman named Lulu. Are you ready for this? A woman named Lulu. Goes to a house where there were the people in the house are not registered Republicans. They're actually independence. But this person named Lulu is going house to house where they know that there are democrat or independent voters and Lulu is asking if she could help fill out the ballot, and oh, hey, I'll even take the valid for you. So this is what they do in California. They've got these they're not volunteers. These are paid paid people. The law says they can be paid the ballot harvesters could be paid to do this. So lulus going house to house to help out with the vote. She goes to this house. There's a ring camera attached and the ring camera video records, everything here's what the conversation sounded like take a listen. Ballot. The only people who are supporting the Democratic Party. If a service, I'm just trying to think of your ballot and show, you how to do it. If you don't know. Just packed last year at the end. There's been a problem with like people.

Whodunnit times op-ed section big mystery going on in a few moments were also going talk to assemblyman. Jim Patterson, California assemblyman who says that the DMV needs to be audited because the department of motor vehicles has admitted they botched voter information for about twenty three thousand voters, meaning some folks waited in long lines, they registered at the DMV for one party, but they walked out registered to another party and other like options like whether or not you can rain, and I'm sure they probably didn't know until they went to vote probably not. But now. Yeah, exactly in some cases, people were registered to the wrong party some customers who wished to opt out of the program. We're actually added to the program and in a letter to the secretary of state, Alex Padilla, the department said the inaccurate customer information largely affected voter preferences such as voter. Vote by mail options language, as well as political party sections. So they only learned of these issues August theft, according to the DMV after going through one point four million customer records who by so now, if you're one of these people affected you're going to receive a letter from the DMV notifying you that. There was a problem. It will say something like this error was caused by the DMV. It's not your fault. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. But this right on the heels of an election, and after all of and as you mentioned, I mean, the DMV has had so many problems with long lines and just processing people that doesn't look good for the department. No, it definitely doesn't. And so hopefully, we'll speak to the assemblyman. Jim Patterson who is calling for this audit of the DMV. In the meantime, while we wait for that the fallout from that New York Times op Ed continues Trump now demanding the New York Times dentist by.

She said she was asked by a producer outside the White House. And she said, I think she just yelled. No, not me. Right, you so you can actually go on people in Vegas are actually batting on this amazing, Indiana, governor is a hundred and fifty one favorite. Oh, Betsy DeVos is in second. Mike Pompeo's third. So yeah. If you're a betting a gambling, man or woman out there, and you think you might have. Yeah. You could you can make some money off of this -absolutely, especially if you're one of the insiders who knows who it is. All right. We have I believe we have assemblyman Patterson on the phone now assemblyman Patterson is calling for an audit of the DMV because they have botched thousands and thousands of voter registration forms. As are you there? Yes. I sure am. Sorry. Delayed. No problem. It happens to the best of us. Speaking of delay. I mean, you're talking about the DMV anyone say, those three initials, that's all you think about long lines. But this is something different. It's not just the the long lines were complaining about here. They've actually messed up a whole bunch of voter registration forms in multiple ways. Yeah. The more time goes by the more. We learn about the DMV but back in April. When I started looking into all of this. We had a number of whistle blowers in the DMV talk to us about this. And this was part of the reason I wanted the audit which was the voter registration at the DNB was in a mess and warning about it, Dan, we now have the DNB because the media was pressing and asking what about these boater registrations. So now, we know there's something in the neighborhood of. Twenty five thousand or so that they admit to the problem. I have with this is that I think this is the tip of the iceberg. I think the more we look into this and the more we are hearing from people in California, and particularly those in my Sunday district where we're just finding that there's a lot of confusion a lot of concerned that there's been more than just these twenty five thousand that have been either miss registered or unregistered without their consent or their knowledge and this twenty-five thousand numbers coming from the DMV. This is not something you found. Yeah. It's coming from the DMV after a lot of pressure. Frankly, put on both on the audit requested I made a few months back. Also, the media has been paying some very good attention to this. And I think has been forcing the DMV to divulge. We started getting indications of this sometime back so. Where people were calling my office and saying that they were receiving political information that wasn't familiar to them that seem to indicate this was a different candidate makeup or political party makeup communicating with that sort of startled. Some folks the bottom line is that this is I think going problem here that the more we learn the more we're going to find out that these numbers are quite a bit larger. I think the thing that bothered me the most in all of this apart from the original problems with all the wait times. That's one thing to wait a long line to get into the DMV boy, another entirely different matter when you walk into the DMV registered for one party, and you walk out without your knowledge of your consent registered to. Another political party or declined to state as you said a lot of these people probably if they haven't gotten some of these mailings probably wouldn't have even known or notice your notice. Yes. You're saying as far as we seen a lot of these problems. You know, they were they narrowly dodged a request for an audit in August. The Democrats kind of helped them I mean, what are the odds now that we're actually going to see this go through? Well, I hope the odds get better the more. We learn I think the more a an independent audit by by the state auditor is warranted here. I think the important thing to remember is that this auditor is absolutely independent. She is no nonsense. High regarded has already audited the DMV and sometimes pass. She's also audited high speed rail effectively in years past she discovered multi millions of dollars that the university of California had hidden in accounts. They weren't letting the public know about she discovered millions of dollars in the in the parks department that was years ago that was Bank accounts. So what what is the push back then in this audit? What are the Democrats push back as well? I think it's merely kind of politics as usual. The the look the Democrats are in charge of the state. The Democrats are in charge the department of motor vehicles. I mean, governor Brown's appointee to lead the. The department. I mean, this is political decision making, and I just think they didn't want to have to face up to an independent audit. And they decided that they weren't going to put the necessary dotes up on the Senate side to to do an audit. Look the big I think the biggest mistake here is to trust the DMV to police itself. Yeah. We have just seen evidence over and over again that there's something very very long going on inside the DMV on a regular basis. And when I asked for the audit, I had a number of whistle blowers from the inside of the DMV and management positions that had been trying so long time to bring this out and to try to get the DMV director and the executives at the top of this department to face up to the answer some questions. To staff and the problems they were creating for for the people of of California. Look, I'm just gonna continue to press sport. We come back into session in January, and I will ask at the first opportunity in January when the committee meets again for an audit. And I think perhaps that it it might gain some some additional support weight stuff what we're discovering sure we're talking to assemblyman Jim Patterson about the DMV, and the fact that they have botched voter information for at least twenty five thousand voters, perhaps more when you're asking for this audit will will they also look into just how things are run at the DMV. Why there seemed to be you know, these endless our long day long lines despite hiring, more employees. Absolutely. That's precisely the scope of the DMV. We were very careful and detailed and laying out what the what the DMV challenges were. And I must say that the auditor was very very professional about it and helping us to develop the kinds of questions, and the kind of depth as I mentioned, she has audited DMV before I think it was a mistake to turn their backs on an audit. I think they may be learning the lesson that independent transparency audits by people who demonstrated that they can do a very good job and find a pathway to finding the problem and in the pathway to fix. It is a much better approach than to merely say to the department. Police yourself and six the problem is that who does the DMV have no one policing it. I mean who they answer to? Well, they basically answer to the governor from time to time they answer to the legislature with respect to the I sit on the accountability and budget oversight that includes the dmbc in communities that I serve on. And we see them fairly regularly. But look the buck stops on on on governor Brown's desk. And I think he's made a fundamental mistake in essentially protecting the DMV some of the independent outside audit. He particularly intervened with three members of the California Senate and instructed them simply not vote for the audit it sale by by one vote. So so interesting because I feel like who would be opposed to having the having running better. Well, I mean, I look we we live in a politicized state. And there is a one party in charge. And these are the kind of problems that I think the people of California face with unaccountable one party rule, and I would say this if Republicans were in in in charge a lot of power can be very corrupting. And you you you wanna use the power not only to keep yourself in power. But also to hide problems that might eliminate you from power and every single time that happens. It doesn't matter. What party does it? The people are the ones who suffer. And I just think that it's it's inexcusable to turn our backs as a state on the DMV trust it to fix its own problems. When it has just messed up, so so entirely on almost everything that they now have touched very little they say yet, Ben just to say, you know, business as usual we've heard a lot of excuse making. I know this is a rather forceful charge. But I think we're going to discover a lot more people have been registered wrongly your head rations. I think this is the tip of the iceberg. And I think we are seeing what amounts to a cover up that is slowly unwinding. And I think that has to do with the fact that it has gotten to the public attention so much that I have spent most of the day today. Talking to members of the media up and down the state of California explaining this this very problem that we see now there's great interest in.
