Does the volatile auto -- -- as you can tell.
President that unique chuckle this is directly serious -- hit an 800 police are resistant laughter -- -- stinging sarcasm -- half.
Stinging and brilliant job for these men -- walk on them.
Let's let's deal would -- filled with us right I he's admitted to behave via he won't resign the there's not much recall so for anybody took false and that unless the people decide to recall him it's a.
Very very cumbersome recall California the state of California prescribes that mechanism for recalling any public official.
But it gives -- municipalities.
And cities the opportunity to install their own method.
San Diego installed it's own method for the very purpose of protecting.
Them -- year.
From being removed from office because of some temporary unpopularity now we don't know -- this is temporary.
Or is going to last for the rest of his career where and how long it's -- -- his career is going to be.
But the population San Diego is 750000.
Need over a hundred.
Thousand signature class a one.
Who voted last time.
So -- -- they met the checking them out that is twice -- checks this.
-- about a million dollars to collect the signatures it cost about six million dollars to verify them.
Are they who they say they are.
Is this their signature.
Do they live where they say they live and did they vote for mayor last time around who -- it was extremely cumbersome process -- and who would pay for that.
It's not in my weird not clear if that would be paid for by donations it could not -- before.
By the government because he presumably would veto the government spending money on upending him and then the Vito would have to be overridden city doesn't -- a seven or ten million dollars.
It would take to do this and it is intentionally.
A very difficult and cumbersome procedure.
To protect mayors from fear of losing their job because of an unpopular decision now that's a decision -- -- logic that.
Well -- but the decision being protected what's governmental not not person all right coming here that they they -- -- get rid of this guy because of his personal indiscretions not because he.
He did something as mayor -- reduce the size of the police cut police overtime.
Backed up stop and -- something arguably within his authority.
As as the mayor so.
There's no way around this and I'm the only other way is is the next election and he was duly elected last year correct so -- will have to live with him for three and -- peers or come up with this seven to ten million bucks.
Not tax deductible.
No words of somebody contributes to this going to be that many they're gonna used -- it at post tax dollars dollars and which -- birdie paid attacks.
Two to orchestrate this and get it going and who already made a very very serious mistake.
The statute requires that -- 10102000.
The amassed within forty days of serving notice of the recall they already served notice that forty days is already -- -- They've got a 38 days they probably -- really going to be collecting signatures first because they have no idea how well vulnerable take that -- take to collect them.
And verified and they -- -- 38 days left.
People behind this recall have said that they will give the mayor until 5 PM today and I'm assuming that's 5 PM Pacific time today -- 8 PM here on the East Coast and then they will and formally initiate the process.
I mean is it similar in terms of how long that takes is -- in the case of how long it takes to get the signature.
Well yes you you can go out and hire signature gatherers now something signature gatherers are not as astute as others.
But typically when you when you would tournament Anthony Weiner -- and Eliot Spitzer when they filed their nominating petitions here in New York City.
For mayor comptroller respectively they each produced four times the number of signatures that the statute required.
Because you a lot of signatures are going to be proven to be in ballot.
If they produce four times the number of signatures required here we more than half the city of -- over 400000.
So you have hire a company to get the signatures hire another company -- verify the signatures hope and pray that fair accurate and that can be done.
In forty days because whatever signatures they come up with the mayor's lawyers will challenge it right so -- Face -- the heat.
-- -- it's easier for him to hang on the that it is for the people to kick -- that.
Basically at this stage absolutely and he can use.
War chest to challenge.
They have to use newly dedicated newly donated dollars to fondly recall.
So and adopt their -- -- we still miss the film without extraordinary news conference on.
Friday during studio -- we went straight to -- Anthony -- a campaign event.
We're -- -- it the only thing I know this is the legal question but the only thing that anybody's talking about at any Anthony Weiner for -- Event right now is the sexting that he did I -- personal behavior.
In other parts of Anthony Weiner I don't mean body parts of the parts of -- sports I don't know about -- I knew that I admire -- and we've all madam when I had freedom march.
And had in mind he was the most tenacious interview -- I ever met and also one of the smartest and I loved it.
Carrying with him intellect and -- -- he is also and he and I share this view.
A fierce opponent of stop and frisk a belief that that is a direct in direct defiance of the Fourth Amendment of the constitution.
But his brilliance and its ability of the constitution will be meaningless if he can't discuss anything.
But -- the most toward free and almost almost the most disgusting behavior we've ever heard of in a public official I just don't know how he gets to first base shoot this hang around -- -- and didn't.
Should vote has put assigning.
These kind of -- Issues the politicians happy if they are as you say supremely intellectual.
Very gifted -- greatly up.
I think that I -- voters I think murderers can and and want to put it aside I don't know that they can do so the second time and Anthony Weiner knew if this second barrage had not happened.
He'd still be ahead in the polls but he's he's.
Sinking like us like a stone -- upon right now you know and I don't know how we can stop that freefall because he can't discuss the issues.
On which he's pretty strong for a city like this and but I I don't know how he gets up the.
-- he would lowered the bar in terms of the personal behavior we will allow politicians to.
Go through since the Clinton Lewinsky is was wouldn't do what we decide at that point that -- personal stuff is one.
Thank you ask Anthony Weiner -- say yes and they'll say it's because of my wife's former boss' husband Bill Clinton and that's the last thing bill and Hillary wanna be compared with as the behavior Anthony -- yeah.
Baghdad not related in anyway I'm sure longer but so for the second state Hillary Clinton.
The judge just mentioned is having lunch at this moment -- President Obama.
The White House I want to know what that discussing 2016 maps and up perhaps missed the -- and whether he should be.
Forced to go away we shall see -- great to see you as always pleasure -- -- you give me.
