Assemblyman Mayes Files Suit Against Secretary of State and Attorney General
A very credible source in Sacramento has informed American Children First that California Assemblyman Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) has filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of State Alex Padilla and the Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
Also named as a real party in interest in his official capacity as the state printer is David Gerald Hill.
Believed to have been filed yesterday and related to his campaign to get re-elected to the 42nd Assembly District, the subject of the suit remains a mystery as the documents have not been uploaded. However, Mayes is represented by James C. Harrison, a partner in the law firm Remcho Johansen & Purcell LLP, which "specializes in political, election, ethics, constitutional, and public policy law."
Mayes seeks a writ of mandamus which should expedite the matter through the courts.
It is assumed that Mayes is filing a lawsuit to challenge the ballot title designation of one of his opponents, Andrew Kotyuk or Gary Jeandron. According to the Riverside County Registrar of Voters, Kotyuk has sought to be listed as "Councilman/Small Businessman" and Jeandron will be listed as a "Retired Police Chief."
