Bad day for the governor

The week's news at a glance.

Sacramento

California activists announced this week that they had collected enough signatures to force Gov. Gray Davis into a recall election. The recall group, Rescue California, said 1.2 million Californians had signed their petition, which accuses Davis, a Democrat, of ruining the state’s finances through “gross mismanagement.” Election authorities will schedule a vote if they determine that 897,158 of the signatures are valid. One of the Republicans eyeing Davis’ job, Rep. Darrell Issa, put up $1 million of his own money to pay for the petition drive. Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is also considering a run. Davis, whose approval rating has fallen to 22 percent, dismissed the campaign as “partisan mischief.”
