Right wing media's latest misinformation campaign targets the California recall

Right-wing media pundits are pushing a new misinformation campaign this time about election fraud in the upcoming California gubernatorial recall, echoing debunked claims from the 2020 presidential election.

An emerging narrative pushed by major Fox News personalities and others claims California Governor Gavin Newsom will only win the recall because of election fraud and so called ballot harvesting, despite the lack of any credible evidence.

According to Political Data Intelligence, all registered voters in California were sent a mail-in ballot and more than a third of the 22 million ballots have been returned ahead of election day Tuesday. More than half of the ballots cast were from Democrats, and polling trends predict Newsom will retain his position by double digit margins.

But Newsom's top Republican challenger, right wing talk radio host Larry Elder, is also making evidence-free claims of potential fraud. "Larry Elder is relying on this big lie," LA Times columnist Jean Guerrero said on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday. "He understands that Californians are very likely to reject him as the next governor of California, and the only way that he can explain this loss away is by claiming that it was stolen from him."


The right wing hates democracy.
