3. If there were any semblance of honesty in this,
a 'recall' would merely call for a new election in which anyone would be eligible that would normally be eligible. In my strong opinion, the costs of such an election should be borne solely by the challengers on the ballot, and not the People of California -- who're already bearing the 'cost' of having to turn out to have their voices heard.
