‘Calexit’ breaks up, ends petition for 2018 California ballot

The leaders of the “Calexit” movement, or Yes California, are going their separate ways. Signature-gathering slowed and donors fled amid negative publicity exploiting one organizer’s ties to Russia. Now Californians will have to wait to take up secession.

It was never going to happen anyway, critics said. And while the Yes California campaign may have surprised many last year when it received state authorization to begin collecting signatures for ballot access, it all came to an anticlimactic end on Monday.

“For me, today, my ballot initiative petition drive came to an end,” Yes California leader Louis J. Marinelli wrote to supporters in an email Monday, according to the Sacramento Bee.

The campaign website has yet to be updated.
