California confirmed Monday that recall backers had collected the 1.5 million validated signatures needed to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). Now begins a months-long drama that will be driven not only by voters weighing whether Newsom deserves to stay but also by the state’s quirky, flawed recall rules. It’s too late to fix them now, but the state should ensure that the 2021 recall is the last one run this way.
