Who Are California’s Winners and Losers of 2020?

By Katy Grimes

We’ve made a list, and checked it twice, but there must be more

While 2020 has been a perfectly horrible year thanks to abusive politicians, the gross mismanagement of the coronavirus, job loss and business closures, and the tanking of the economy, not all politicians are corrupt or obsessed with power.

However, the top California winners and losers of 2020 are politicians:

Winners are Assemblyman Kevin Kiley and Assemblyman James Gallagher for their lawsuit against Gov. Gavin Newsom challenging his emergency authority powers during the coronavirus shutdown. They say California’s Constitution has an explicit separation-of-powers provision, which Gov. Newsom has violated. “A California Governor is constitutionally forbidden from doing the very thing Gov. Newsom has done here: exercise legislative powers.” Only the Legislature can pass laws.

Kiley has also written a book titled Recall Newsom: The Case Against America’s Most Corrupt Governor. “Newsom has been attacking me with artless demagoguery all year,” Kiley said. “He’s claimed that by fighting his dictatorial rule I’m attempting ‘to prematurely declare an end to this ongoing crisis’ or ‘throwing into chaos efforts to combat wildfires.’”

This leads to the biggest Loser 2020: California Governor Gavin Newsom.

As Kiley says, “it’s all of us Newsom plans to smear. He’s repeatedly tried to blame the people of California for his own worst-in-the-nation COVID performance, saying things like ‘don’t be selfish’ and ‘not everyone is practicing common sense.’”

Now for the rest of the California Winners 2020:

  • Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno) for his dogged determination to get an audit of the corrupt and incompetent Employment Development Department, and for his straight talk.
