POLITICS | Gov. Newsom’s Dirty Laundry

Legislators Again Protect DMV from Independent Audit

  . By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views This is your DMV in action.  It spent over one billion on a computer system that does not work properly.  It registered to vote over 150,000 illegal aliens—and refuses to give the list of DMV rolls to check to see how many more are illegally using […]
