RECALLED! Far Left DA Chesa Boudin Voted Out Of Office In Uber-Liberal San Francisco

Chesa Boudin, the radical, far left DA of San Francisco was successfully voted out of office by recall.

It turns out that even the people of blue San Francisco have limits when it comes to out-of-control crime.

Boudin now has the distinction of being too far left for San Francisco. That’s quite an accomplishment.

The Hill reports:

San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin recalled in blow to progressives

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin was projected to be ousted in a recall Wednesday, marking a stunning setback for progressive advocates of criminal justice reform.

The Associated Press called the race around 12:04 a.m. ET.

Boudin’s loss is the latest and loudest signal that voters’ appetites for reform is softening amid a nationwide spike in violent crime. His replacement will now be chosen by Mayor London Breed (D), who is expected to tap someone with a more moderate reputation.

Boudin first took office in early 2020 and ran on a slew of progressive promises, including to end cash bail, stop the practice of prosecuting children as adults and offer defendants the chance to enter a rehabilitation program rather than prison.

Crime has remained roughly the same in San Francisco since Boudin first entered the job, and no evidence has emerged to link his policies to violent crime.

Good riddance. The city will be better off without him.

This is a very bad sign for Democrats in November but great news for America.
