SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte statement on the California Democratic Party Chairman election debacle:
"The recent calls for voter identification at the California Democratic Party Chairman election show the complete hypocrisy of the Democrats when it comes to election integrity. Democrats think voter identification laws are important for their party elections, but don’t think they are good enough for the California voters. It should be clear to the people of California that the Democrats are willing to put the elections of our state officials at risk while protecting their own Party elections."
