The Daily Show: John Burton, Democratic Party Chair, Explains How F**ked Up California Is

It's always a great day to be a reporter when politicians are dropping F-bombs, especially when they are dropping them in reference to California's depressing finances.

Of course, it makes even better fodder for The Daily Show, which did a hilarious segment last night explaining just how easy it is for voters to get ludicrous and often financially backward measures on the ballot in California.

The star of the show was none other than our Democratic Party Chairman John Burton, who doesn't hold back, giving our own former Supervisor Chris Daly stiff competition in the foul-mouthed category. The fiery Dem explained to John Oliver of The Daily Show just how “fucked up” it is that all one needs to get a measure on the ballot is 500,000 signatures.
