CSUSB professor interviewed about apparently successful militia-backed recall in Shasta County
Feb. 3, 2022

Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, discussed the militia-backed recall election in Shasta County, which appears to have succeeded. Republican Board of Supervisor member Leonard Moty has reportedly conceded in the race after election results showed him likely to lose the recall. Moty is also the former police chief of the city of Redding in Shasta County. Extremism experts say this race could give other far-right groups a template for taking over local governments.
