California Gov. Gavin Newsom embraced a politically explosive and legally dubious attempt to pry loose President Donald Trump’s tax returns on Tuesday, signing legislation that would boot Trump from California primary ballots if he doesn’t make his filings public.

So? It doesn't matter unless there's a serious primary challenge.

I still really dislike any attempt to mess with elections, no matter what party does it. Let the voters decide what is important to them; if a voter wants to make disclosure of tax returns a prerequisite of their vote good for them, it's a reasonable standard to want some transparency from someone before you vote for them. Bit the idea that it should be government mandated? Way too much room for potential abuse.
