Mark Meuser’s campaign for Secretary of State releases ad on “the issue of voter fraud in California,” says: “One of the most popular lines promoting the lie that voter fraud does not exist is that there are no investigations and there are no prosecutions. The Secretary of State is responsible for investigating voter fraud. If there are no investigations, it is because the current Secretary of State is refusing to investigate.

Jessica Morse made it clear she is not capable of doing that;” adds that Morse “refused to say whether or not she supports” Prop. 6 (gas tax repeal), which McClintock says he supports. Release here.
