"And I'm Cherry Glazer. With his KCRW news update. Some voting security experts are sounding the alarm. They fired off a letter to California secretary of State calling on her to take extra precautions with the upcoming recall election. This comes after election software used in Colorado, Michigan, was leaked last month. The software known as an election management system, was developed by Dominion voting Systems and is used in many counties here in California. Philip Stark is an election security expert and a statistics professor U C. Berkeley and one of those raising red flags. He says the software is responsible for everything from configuring the scanners that read boats to the actual vote count. It's basically soup to nuts. Everything involved in the election other than registration. Secretary of State Shirley Weber's office says California's elections are secure, She says California counties use a different version of the Dominion Software and state officials have repeatedly stressed that voting machines here are not connected to the Internet. But Stark told KCRW's that's not enough to prevent a possible breach. Even if the systems are not directly connected to the Internet. They tend to be indirectly connected to the Internet. For example, the computer that's used to Configure other machines to get them ready to vote may itself the Internet connected. Former President Donald Trump and his supporters have repeatedly and falsely claimed that the 2020 election was tainted by electoral fraud. Stark says he and other other experts are not trying to advance that falsehood, but they want to get the word out about what they believe are legitimate election vulnerabilities. Stark and his group are calling for careful audit of California's recall election results to rule out any possible fraud. You're listening to K C. R w KCRW.

Just months after Shirley Weber was confirmed as California's secretary of state, she'll have to oversee her first statewide election. It's a recall election of governor Gavin Newsom, who appointed Weber to her post back in December. KQED POLITICS reporter Guy Marzo Roddy has more on Webber's role in the recall. After a 2020 election with historic turnout. Webber's determined to get Californians back to the polls for a recall election this fall. Want to have a great turnout so that it truly is a mandate from the people one way or the other and not have it because of an Aussie year, an off election as something that people just kind of tossed aside, Webber's first challenge will be to convey basic information about the recall to voters. Says Mindy Romero, director of the Center for Inclusive Democracy at USC. This is the election. This is the date of the election. What does that? Yes mean what doesn't know mean do I fill out the second question about milk? Other candidates? Turnout was strong in California's 2003 recall election, and unlike then voters will get mailed to ballot by the fault this year. But Romero says historically underrepresented voters could miss the off your vote, especially given the unique recall ballot. If people feel unsure about what they're voting, the news That could also potentially deter from some people from participating as secretary of state. Webber also sets the threshold for candidates to get on the ballot to potentially replace Newsome. And she could set Ah, hi Signature requirement to avoid the 135 candidate frenzy of 2000 and three But Weber says she doesn't want to be seen is tipping the scales to limit candidates from running. Well, we avoid the 135 or whatever it was last time. Would love to say we would and could, But, you know, I guess folks already lining up. That doesn't necessarily mean Weber will stay silent about the recall question itself. California's previous secretary of state, Alex Padilla, often voiced his opinion on candidates and ballot measures so well whether use her platform is elections chief to endorse or oppose the recall. You know, I haven't really decided yet. I think people have asked me what I think about it, and I think as a citizen and an elected official or not, I have a right to have an opinion about. It doesn't affect what I have to do. P. Peterson, the dean of Pepperdine School of Public Policy, and the former Republican candidate for secretary of state, says it's best that the state's top election official stays neutral. I really do hope That Secretary Weber is able to pull back from that trendline again to understand that her primary role is in the administration of elections in such a way. That voters trust the process. Still, Weber says she has concerns over whether recalls are a good use of the state's election resource is and she hopes to reconsider the process with the Legislature.

"They're taking him literally. Yeah, and our our own former colleague Will Carless, who now writes for the U. S. A today flew to from San Diego to D C, apparently sitting next to her the whole time. Yeah, it's amazing how small the world is Alright late last month, right before Christmas and right after we shut down the podcast for a little winter's nap. Governor Gavin Newsom made two big announcement. First, he appointed Secretary of State Alex Padilla to the U. S Senate seat that vice President elect Kamila Harris is leaving. And then he immediately Filled that secretary of State Seat with San Diego Assemblywoman. Shirley Weber, not Llorente. Gonzales. Yeah, That was a moment that I screamed at my desk to No one. It was. It's very rare that were that surprised about a political development of any kind. I mean, it goes years before you get those kinds of things. Yeah, it was Kind of a rare like, Oh, politics is fun for this, like one second in time, and then you know very quickly As we've discussed it became soul crushing. Again. Um, but there was a real moment there were with Padilla and Weber and Gaming out whom I take her place in the assembly, where things were kind of exciting and fun, And I appreciate that little gift. Yeah. So, um, Surely whoever represents the 79th Assembly district, which is, uh, southeastern San Diego, but also the Mesa Lemon Grove. And then south big parts of eastern Tula Vista. It's It's very similar to Sarah Jacobs District in Congress. It's this sprawling, extremely diverse. There's a lot of wealthy people there are poor people. There are vast diversity of ethnicities and backgrounds. Now next door to her is the assembly's district that Reading Gonzalez represents. And Lauren Gonzalez was openly running for secretary of state. She had been making it clear she wanted. Didn't she announced it on our podcast? That's right. She did make it official on the podcast. And she even had, like an actual campaign architectures set up really far in advance. I think in advance of even Alex Padilla running for reelection in 2020, or maybe 2018 she has, you know. Actual fundraising campaign committees set up she has, you know, like she's actually running, she raised like $350,000. She had built a portfolio of bills to sort of build her credibility for those seat. Access for younger people to the ballot. The motor voter the Is that what his motor voter registration at D. M. V. S. She had really tried to be. The legislator for running for voting rights is the reason you don't have to pay postage to mail in your ballot. You know, she's tried to spearhead voter education bills and allowing 17 year olds to vote. All kinds of Voting efforts has been one of not the only focus of her time in the Legislature. Obviously, she's very in the labor and Women's issues as well. But but it's certainly one of like the three cornerstones that she's been invested in. And then there's Weber, who who had never Told the governor. She wanted the job right and she you know, here's who she's by. Far as I said in the politics before I wrote about this, I think the undisputed best speaker on the hill in our in Sacramento, she and I think it's precisely because the things that she drives at the Capitol Are the things that she is deeply passionate about, and they are above all else to major things. One is criminal justice, reform and police use of lethal force and and changing how that works and then equity in quality of education and the two groups that she, you know fights with the most in those issues, the police union and the teachers union. You know, she's She's one of very few willing to take both of them on as seriously as she does. Yeah, it's going to be really interesting. You know, I think, she told Cal matters that she's Hopes that she has sort of put into place some pieces and encourage people in the Legislature to kind of take up that mantle, But it's not immediately clear to me who would do it so forcefully. There's another. You know, Southern California black legislator who has been involved in these issues. Holly Mitchell, who's now on the L, a County Board of Supervisors, and so without either of them in the Legislature. Um, I'm not sure who that champion would be. There are a few You know possibilities, but certainly no one who Would be so willing to take on these powerful groups as aggressively as she has. Yeah. So, uh, I mean credit. I mean, just before we move on from this particular point put into perspective. How did disappointed this must have been for Larentowicz also must have been just devastating. Yeah, I think, um As surprised as we all were. It was probably that surprise for her mixed with, you know, extreme disappointment and sorrow, and she and she probably had, like, really think about what she could say about it because another answer. She's friends and Everybody respects Shirley Weber, and you don't want to take away from that moment and and you know, black woman taking that seat to is such a powerful thing, especially voting rights, access and stuff like that. It's just It was an incredibly confusing day. I think for a lot of people. Yeah, And so I had sort of. I suppose I wasn't surprised necessarily that the governor didn't appoint. Llorona because she is so actively running the often times they don't want to put their finger on the scale for an upcoming and all election in that way, But if that were the case, he would expect them to appoint someone who was just sort of Ah, very clearly temporary guardian of the role a caretaker who was going to step aside and very quickly. We learned that Shirley Weber doesn't plan to do that. And so I think that is. What makes it so interesting is One. They were next door neighbors. They're district's are right next to each other colleagues who you know work on similar issues and of similar viewpoints. But one wanted the role and one had no idea..

KQED politics Reporter Guy Mars. Roddy has Maura on Secretary of state nominee Shirley Weber's Agenda for the office. Weber says she hopes to build on the success of California's 2020 election when over 80% of registered voters cast a ballot. My goal is to continue basically opening up the process, making sure that we have access to voting in a variety of ways. Last year, every registered voter was mailed a valid by default. In order to avoid crowding at the polls during the pandemic, Weber says she supports making that change permanent that work well, I think in California this last time I do support continued a permanent fixture of California's options available to have devoted.

"And now it's looking like, especially if Shirley Weber chooses to run again. She won't run for that seat. So you know is that an option and I think in it just took something that maybe could have been like a political gift. And I think even I've heard you say this guy turn it into kind of like a political head. Right? Turn it It was like the golden opportunity. Thies. Three appointments have now become this huge headache. On the other hand, let me just play devil's advocate here. I agree with you, and I think it did cause some consternation within like the political class and folks like us that watch it. But at the end of the day, Newsome came out and appointed the first Latino toe ever represent California in the U. S Senate. Alex Padilla, a man who's on Lee, really on the Democratic side, Republicans of the problems with him, but they were gonna have a problem with anybody. But you know, the only real I think criticism you hear is this identity question of Should he replace Kamila Harris with a black woman, and I think it's a valid one. I've been talking about it. I think you know does not to take away from that. But the truth is Padilla. You know, I think when it finally happened, it was a very moving moment. You know, he teared up. He has this incredible immigrant story on Ben Newsome. Did you know he waited long enough, But he turned around and made Shirley Weber, the secretary of state, which in itself, I think it was a very powerful Not to some of those questions over racial politics on also, just Shirley Weber is an amazing person. I would highly recommend you go back and listen to our interview with her. I mean, she's the daughter of sharecroppers. She has had a Remarkable life story. Her dad fled the south and she became, you know, a PhD and state assemblywoman, and now she's going to go on to become the secretary of state. I mean, Do you think that like as as we move forward away from this, it'll look a lot rosier than it did in the moment for Newsom and I think that he did. Do some, you know, kind of impressive political judiciary. With the Weber appointment on and a sweet kind of alluded to, there's more ahead, right? There is the potentially hopefully they potentially hopefully for them the best Sarah appointment. On Ben. There's also this question of well Dianne Feinstein actually serve out her term on DSA. Why do you think that like if you combine that stuff, and then you think about whether he can do this thing about, you know, trying to actually build a relationship with the Legislature and 22 21. He might be in a better spot in a few months, then it felt like he was in mid November. I think one thing to keep in mind about these important appointments is that it's really highlighted the the lack of women of color in office in higher office and just available the availability of them to a point to these higher offices, and that's certainly not on you know, women of color it just talks about. It speaks to our society and how You know they haven't been. These women have not been placed in positions where they're, you know, easily, you know, put into Ah, higher position, especially if you start looking around at like attorney general. It's a limited pool of women of color who are attorneys and are qualified for that position in the first place. And I think that is also one of the arguments that people had. For appointing a woman you know to the U. S. Senate because the scope the pool of candidates is wider there than for something like an attorney general's position. Right before we leave the appointment. Parasol Wanna throw one more thing out there, Which is that the head of California's labor agency Julie Su, is among the names being considered by President elect Joe Biden to be labor secretary That would add another kind of wrench in the top of California's government sues not really a brand name in California, but she's been working for decades on You know, worker issues. She got her start in the nineties and l. A fighting for garment workers who have been trafficked and sweatshops in the L. A area on DCI certainly has all the qualifications you'd expect in a labor secretary. She's led this labor huge labor agency in California..

New Law Mandates California To Study The Issue Of Reparations For Slaves' Descendants
"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Elsa Chang in January. 18 65 As the Civil war staggered into its final months, the US made a promise. It would take for 100,000 acres of confiscated southern lands stretching from South Carolina to Florida and redistribute it to formerly enslaved black people in 40 acre parcels. Well, that order did not last long. Within the year, Lincoln's replacement president, Andrew Johnson, broke that promise and handed the land back to plantation owners. That was the nation's first systematic attempt to provide reparations for slavery. More recently, the late Michigan congressman John Conyers, tried and failed for nearly three decades. Yet Congress to consider the same issue. Now California has taken Conyers bill and used it as an inspiration for a new bill signed into law last week. It is the first state law of its kind. California Assemblywoman Shirley Weber is the author of that Bill, and she joins us Now. Welcome. Thank you. It's good to be here. Good to have you So what this new law does is basically set up a task force to study the issue of reparations for the descendants of enslaved people and To make further recommendations from there. Tell me what are you hoping to see? Come out of this task force. Well, I think they're a couple of things we hope will happen. Obviously, we hope there will be a number of recommendations on what the state needs to do in order to repair the damage that's been done. But hopefully in addition to that, we will have robust conversations about the really deep and long and pervasive impact of slavery and racism in California and across the nation. I talked to too many people who tell me I'm not a slave holder. I didn't I didn't own any slaves. What does that mean to me? Well, you may not have owned them, but the impact of your forefathers owning them. As what is the impact of the various laws and limitations placed upon African Americans That made it difficult, if not impossible, for them to compete educationally and economically and socially still has its lingering impact, and we see that in the streets today, we'll give us some concrete examples of what form Might these reparations take Well, you know, it could be like it is a Georgetown where those folks who was slaves that landed Georgetown, every descendant of those individuals now could have access and free education of Georgetown. We could look at the issue of loans and grants for people starting businesses, and we have businesses that are suffering and sometimes failing in this pandemic. Because of our let the lack of support and financing that made it almost difficult, if not impossible, for them to own land and only businesses. We need to look at housing patterns. California had some very, very racist housing patterns that existed. But they're they're number of things that need to exist and to indicate that is tremendous amount of damage was done and puts California on the hook as well, because he basically California was a free state, right. A lot of people don't think of California as a slave state, but exactly what role California did play when it came to slavery. Well, we had one of most racist governors who talked about removing all black people from state of California free or slaves. We created laws that prevented them from being able to testify in court against white person. We had lots of things embedded in our land ownership that prevents folks from buying or selling homes to African Americans. All of those things are important, as they began to say, is this wide African Americans continue to struggle have the least amount of wealth amassed have low homeownership, all those kinds of things that even after generations and generations of struggle. We still find that these things prevail. And even though a few sneak through the vast majority do not Now let me ask you dealing with the legacy of slavery is an issue that this entire country needs to reckon with. So there are a lot of people say, Let's look to a federal solution. How would you respond to that? Well, we have We lived for federal solution for 30 to 40 years. At this point, it's just not happening at the federal level. And so after waiting, we said, You know what California could do this? And I've governor said, You know what we can lead the way and that we think will motivate others to do. Likewise, California state Assemblywoman Shirley Weber was the author of a new state law to study reparations for slavery. Thank you very much, thank you for the opportunity.
