California Recall Debate Turns Weird As GOP Candidate Gets Hit With Subpoena
A debate among Republican candidates on the impending recall of the governor of California took a more bizarre turn when legal papers were delivered to one of the attendees in the middle of the event.
John Cox, who was the GOP nominee in the 2018 gubernatorial election, was struck by the subpoena relating to unpaid campaign debt when he began to speak:
The Los Angeles Times said the papers were linked to unpaid bills from his previous campaign in which he lost more than 20 percentage points to Governor Gavin Newsom.
A judge ruled in February that Cox failed to pay nearly $ 100,000 for political ads and legal fees. He told the newspaper after the debate that his creditor "didn't deserve" to be paid.
Cox is one of dozens of candidates in next month's election that will first ask voters if Newsom should be recalled and who should replace him if he is.
Polls show a close race.
