Soros-Backed, Super-Woke, California Bay Area Prosecutor Faces Recall

2024-04-20 09:00:48

We have closely followed the disastrous policies being implemented by Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price.

Price is one of many George Soros DA’s who in recent years dominated the down ballot races across the United States. Since assuming office in early January, in a move commonly implemented by the Soros DA’s, Price went after the human capital.

She put veteran prosecutors on paid leave and fired two former investigators. In their place, the former employment and civil rights attorney brought in friends most of whom had no relevant experience as well as the staff members of former San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin who was recalled in June last year.

Price shocked the legal community when she offered a fifteen year sentence to a man accused of three murders including one of a witness.

Last summer, we reported that the citizens in her community were petitioning to recall Price. The petition has been approved and the vote will go forward.

County officials confirmed on Monday that Price’s opponents had submitted enough valid signatures to trigger a vote later this year. It was a close call: While recall supporters turned in tens of thousands more raw signatures than needed last month, a random sample to confirm their validity was inconclusive and the county went to a protracted full count. In the end, proponents got about 1,600 more valid signatures than the roughly 73,000 needed.

The Board of Supervisors will still need to call and set an election for the recall.

Price will be fighting for her political survival less than halfway through her first term after crime spiked in Oakland, the largest city in her district, testing voters’ patience with her platform of slashing penalties and prosecuting police officers who use lethal force. That campaign will coincide with broader efforts to crack down on crime in California, both in the Legislature and at the ballot box, as progressives like Price navigate mounting public frustration.

Crime didn’t just spike in Oakland, it exploded.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom was forced to ship state attorneys and California Highway Patrol officers to Oakland due to the rising crime.

Over 74,000 valid signatures were collected.

The registrar found that 74,757 of the signatures met the validation requirements, surpassing the county’s 73,195 threshold. Almost 49,000 signatures were invalidated. The registrar will present the results to the supervisors on April 30.

The results come after the registrar decided in March to complete a manual review of the signatures after a sample review did not conclusively find that the collected signatures met the required amount to qualify.

The Board of Supervisors is required by state law to decide an election date within 14 days of the registrar completing their count. If the supervisors fail to select a date, county election officials will have five days to choose.

Hopefully, the golden age of misguided social justice policies is also coming to an end.
