As far as Petitioner can surmise by reading the code and instructions of the StateLegislature and Congress as well as the CA SOS Notice provided to each candidate, shownas Exhibit 1 for the Democrats, is that only Respondent Bowen has the duty as CA SOSunder CEC §6041
to select the democratic party candidates for the party in the primaryas there appears there is no express authority delegated by the CA State Legislature tothe Democratic Party per se or any other party for that matter; so it's all of the CA SOSresponsibility to create and certify the "the list" of candidates.3.
Petitioner contends that some statutory duties of the California secretary of stateare in conflict with regards to verifying eligibility of national presidential candidates as theCalifornia Constitution mandates that the Secretary of State uphold her duties which isoverseen by the Legislators and Executive to enforce with impeachment.4.
