Larry Elder Wins Lawsuit, to Appear on California Recall Ballot
Longtime talk show host Larry Elder will be a listed candidate on the California gubernatorial recall ballot after being previously disqualified, a Sacramento judge ruled July 21.
“I won my court case,” Elder, an EpochTV host, said on Twitter. “We will be on the ballot.”
Elder on July 19 filed a lawsuit against Secretary of State Shirley Weber after being left off the official recall candidate list for supposedly filing incomplete tax returns.
However, on July 21, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Laurie M. Earl ruled in favor of Elder, stating that the law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in 2019 requiring gubernatorial candidates to release their tax returns doesn’t apply to recall elections, only primary.
“I don’t find that Mr. Elder was required to file tax returns at all,” Earl said.
Elder is to be placed on the recall ballot along with 41 other candidates who hope to take Newsom’s place in office.
“Victory,” Elder said. “My next one will be on Sept. 14 at the ballot box.”
