Recall Election In California

We're going pink for October!

in 1972, Professor Karl Ainsworth and Officer Xavier Hely leave Montignac for the day to consult with a colleague of Ainsworth's in Paris. This zoologist, Doctor Yvette Montclair, also dabbles in the field of cryptozoology, and knows Ainsworth's work quite well. “An extinct bear living in the Lascaux Cave system, eh? Sounds interesting. There is, of course, quite a bit of evidence of bear-worshipping cults throughout Europe,” she said, pulling a volume from her library wall, “but very little to show that they still exist, Karl.” Officer Hely snorted and said, “I think we've gathered a bit.” Professor Ainsworth cut him off and said, “Yvette, I'm not quite sure that the people involved in this cult know what they're doing; the one we captured seemed to forget everything about the cult once she was separated from her compatriots. I believe that there is a hidden force creating this cult from some sort of shared genetic memory.” Dr. Montclair chuckled and shook her head. “I always did love to hear your theories, Karl. I take it you've come to me because I have access to tranquilizer guns?” The officer and the professor nodded. “Very well. One condition, though – I'm coming with you.” Professor Ainsworth kissed her hand and said, “Yvette, I wouldn't have it any other way.”

in 2003, despite a brief flirtation with the idea of electing a movie star as their governor again, Californians come to their senses and vote Democrat Cruz Bustamante into the governor's mansion in a special recall election. Although the Republican Party had pushed the ouster of Governor Gray Davis, it proved to be of little advantage during the actual election – their main candidate in the field of over 100 came in a distant fourth. Even the independent candidate, Arianna Huffington, polled ahead of the action-hero candidate. It was part of a larger trend against Republican policies that continued into the national elections the next year, as President Al Gore was reelected in a landslide, and the Democrats regained the majority in the House of Representatives.
