It is a shameful and sad time for San Francisco, a so called “Progressive” bastion in America, when duplicitous members in the Democratic party are lining up to support the attempted ouster of District Attorney Chesa Boudin.
Mayor London Breed is a behind-the-scenes advocate in the attempted Recall of democratically elected “progressive” District Attorney Chesa Boudin. Mayor Breed, a political moderate herself and soulmate of the traditional Democratic party establishment, is tacitly by her silence supporting the Recall attempt.
The attempted Recall, circulating by a group of “moderate Democrats”, is being led by Mary Jung, former head of the local Democratic County Central Committee. Ms. Jung has plenty of well connected fellow enablers.
One person leading the campaign is Andrea Shorter who actively worked on Ms. Breed’s candidacy for Mayor in 2018.
Nancy Tung is a Recall supporter. She ran for DA against Chesa Boudin and finished third in a field of four candidates in 2019. In 2020, Mayor Breed attempted to appoint Ms. Tung to the San Francisco Police Commission. The Board of Supervisors rejected her appointment.
Tim Redmond is one of San Francisco’s most renowned political reporters. He publishes 48 Hills. In the latest edition Tim takes a critical look at Mayor Breed’s recent ethical problems and how they play into the Recall Chesa Boudin campaign.
Tim has reported extensively on the dark Right Wing Republican money which is supporting the Moderate Democrats attempt to overturn the election of a fairly elected public official.
