*** UPDATED x1 *** Mendoza wants to delay swearing in for a month
Monday, Nov 14, 2016
Um, did she not know that she’s supposed to take office on the 5th? I’ve texted and called her spokesperson, but haven’t yet heard back.
* Here’s the statute…
Those results will be certified on December 5th.
There’s also a question (in my mind, anyway) about when Comptroller Munger’s official bond expires. The governor might have to reappoint her for a month.
I’ve asked the attorney general’s office for comment. They said this is the first they’d heard about it, but they’d check and get back to me.
…Adding… I didn’t notice this before, but this is from Mendoza’s letter to Munger…
So, Munger’s not returning calls?
…Adding More… Maybe not. Munger was on vacation, I’m told.
*** UPDATE *** The Mendoza people say that Munger’s official bond doesn’t expire until Mendoza is sworn in and gets her own bond. The idea, I’m told, is to allow for a more smooth transition during the holidays, particularly for Munger’s employees.
