Calif. Court May Decide Davis' Future
Aug 4, 4:28 PM (ET)

By DAVID KRAVETS

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The outcome of California's anything-goes recall effort could be determined by the state's highest court, where Gov. Gray Davis added his own complaints Monday to a docket already crowded with legal challenges to the election.

Legal experts said the governor's case is among the strongest of the five challenges pending before the California Supreme Court, since it addresses fundamental voting-rights issues.

Invoking the specter of a Florida-style polling debacle, the governor's lawyers claimed voters will be disenfranchised because counties do not have enough money or time to properly prepare for the Oct. 7 election.

They also want the court to allow Davis to add his own name to the list of replacements on the recall ballot - a list that appears to be growing daily. About 300 gubernatorial wannabes have taken out papers in advance of Saturday's official filing deadline.

2. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
8/10ths of a percent! My God! That's truely a sweeping mandate to govern. I'm sure the people will be happy with their new choice for Gov. Of course the states troubles are not over yet. They will be deficit territory for the next 2 years, maybe more.
