  Meet Larry Elder, the conservative talk radio host and Trump loyalist, who is campaigning to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom "Unfortunately, Gov. Gavin Newsom's failed policies are running this beautiful state into the ground," Elder said in a written statement to Insider.Calls for a recall began prior to the pandemic when Newsom's adversaries grew discontent with California's "homelessness crisis, high taxes and cost of living, immigration, and rationing water and energy use," according to Insider's Lauren Frias. But the calls grew louder after COVID-19 took hold and Newsom implemented mitigation methods.

A statement on the StopCAFraud site read: "Statistical analyses used to detect fraud in elections held in third-world nations (such as Russia, Venezuela and Iran) have detected fraud in California resulting in Governor Gavin Newsom being reinstated as Governor."

The StopCAFraud website, which was paid for in part by Elder's campaign, also asked visitors to petition California officials "to investigate and ameliorate the twisted results."

It was the latest in several unfounded claims of election fraud made by Elder during the campaign.

But as Newsom's victory was becoming clear, Elder deleted the "Stop Fraud" section from his campaign website.

Using the WayBackMachine, a tool that archives web pages, Newsweek found the StopCAFraud had also been heavily altered, with the previously mentioned passage having been removed.
