Um, I think that ship sailed a long time ago. A Communist by any other name…
Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.
Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the US government was rampant.
The bill, which was authored by Democratic Assemblyman Rob Bonta, now goes to the Senate.
