    Prosecutors’ Union In Landslide Vote Says Soros-Backed Los Angeles DA Should Be Recalled

    The Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADDA), a union which represents the vast majority of Los Angeles County prosecutors, voted overwhelmingly to support the recall of District Attorney George Gascon.

    Gascon, who received over $2 million in financial backing from left-wing financier George Soros according to The Los Angeles Times, is currently facing a recall petition spurred by backlash to his perceived lenient stance on crime.

    The ADDA voted to support the recall effort in a landslide, with roughly 83.3% of ADDA members taking part in the vote and 97.9% voting to back the recall, the organization announced.

    “This vote is by those who are intimately familiar with how Mr. Gascon’s policies actually play out on a day-to-day basis,” ADDA president Michele Hanisee said in a statement Tuesday. “We believe the vote of our members will resonate with the voters of Los Angeles as they decide whether to recall Gascon from office and restore public safety as the priority of the District Attorney’s office.”

    The vote follows an incident in which Gascon refused to meet with representatives of the ADDA to discuss whether the union would support the recall effort against the district attorney.

    Gascon has received harsh criticism in recent months for his position on crime in Los Angeles County, drawing the ire of many businesses in the area including Union Pacific. The prosecutor has also proven unpopular with local law enforcement, with Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva arguing Gascon was failing to perform his duties.

    Gascon’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    Gascon is very illustrative of what is wrong with California. He is so kooky even San Francisco didn’t want him. So he comes to Los Angeles backed by lots of Soros money and he gets elected DA and defeats a qualified Black FEMALE candidate! So what does it illustrate? The idiocy of California voters. Clueless, uninformed and facile. That is your California voter. These voters continue to wreck havoc for this once great state.
