Team libusters provides help to avert the recall of Jeff Denham

Thanks to the Libusters.com readers who helped to stop the recall effort and made a statement to curb additional tax and demand cost cuts including salaries of Lawmakers.

Aurelio Rojas - arojas@sacbee.com said "Ostensibly, the Democratic leader's effort to unseat a Republican who was easily re-elected in 2006 stems from last year's 53-day state budget stalemate. Denham joined his GOP colleagues in voting against the spending plan.

But beyond the bad blood over the budget, a successful recall would move Democrats, who hold a commanding 25-15 lead in the Senate, to within one vote of being able to pass a budget and raise taxes without a Republican vote."

"Besides pure vindictiveness, what's obvious is (Perata) is making an attempt to see if he can get a veto-proof state Senate," said Allan Hoffenblum, editor of the California Target Book, which tracks legislative races.
