California vote-shaming mailer under investigation

Tahoe Daily Tribune Staff Report

SACRAMENTO — The California secretary of state’s office is looking into a mysterious vote-shaming mailer that showed up days before a special election in Northern California, the Associated Press is reporting.

KCRA-TV says the mailer sent to at least one woman in El Dorado County contained a chart of names showing who’d voted in the neighborhood in past elections and who hadn’t.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla says his office is reviewing whether the mailer violates state law.
