Mayer On The Constitutional Convention

Here is an article I wrote for the San Francisco Daily Journal regarding the legal and political issues raised by the calls for a constitutional convention. Among other things, I question the constitutionality of AB 4, the statute currently before the Legislature that would prescribe a means of selecting (not electing) the delegates to a convention. I also other a suggestion as to how the scope of such a convention could be limited.
