Did Inflated Voter Rolls And Botched Signature Review Wrongly Thwart Recall Of Woke L.A. DA? Lawsuit Says Yes
From The Federalist:
After its push to oust L.A. County District Attorney George Gascon failed because nearly 200,000 petition signatures were invalidated, the campaign to recall Gascon announced it is filing for injunctive relief after an initial review showed 39 percent of the signatures invalidated by the L.A.

This isn’t the first time L.A. County has been criticized for failing to clean its voter rolls. Back in 2019, California and Los Angeles County agreed to purge as many as 1.5 million ineligible voters from its rolls after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit arguing the Golden State and its biggest county were not complying with federal law requiring the removal of inactive registrants.

Christian Adams told The Federalist.
