While holding this office, he discovered the use of falsely notarized documents by then-President Richard Nixon to fraudulently earn a tax deduction for donation of his pre-presidential papers.Brown also drafted and helped to pass the California Political Reform Act of 1974, Proposition 9, passed by 70% of California's voters in June 1974.Brown also reorganized the California Arts Council, boosting its funding by 1300 percent and appointing artists to the council Like his father, Brown strongly opposed the death penalty and vetoed it as governor, which the legislature overrode in 1977.He also appointed judges who opposed capital punishment.However, Brown was defeated by Republican San Diego Mayor Pete Wilson (who would later become governor), and many considered his political career to be over.After travelling abroad, Brown returned to California and served as Chairman of the California Democratic Party (1989–1991), choosing to resign to run for the Senate again in 1992.
Elected governor in 1974 at age 36, Brown was the youngest California governor in 111 years.
One of these appointments, Rose Bird as the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, was later recalled by voters in 1987 after a strong campaign financed by business interests upset by her "pro-labor" and "pro-free speech" rulings.

As a consequence of the 28-year gap between his second and third terms, Brown has been both the sixth-youngest California governor (the youngest since 1863), and the oldest California governor in history.
Brown was born in San Francisco, California, the only son of four children born to District Attorney of San Francisco and later Governor of California, Edmund Gerald "Pat" Brown Sr., and his spouse, Bernice Layne Brown.
