Any San Franciscan with minimally sharp political antennae knows where Mayor London Breed stands on the upcoming Recall attempt of DA Chesa Boudin.
Why this political charade continues is something only the Mayor’s handlers and gatekeepers know for sure. One need look no further than Andrea Shorter, the Myrmidon who spearheaded the mercenary signature gathering campaign spending $1,400,000 of heavy Right Wing money to force this attempted political coup d’etat.
The mainstream media is derelict in allowing Mayor Breed to remain above the fray when it needs to be doing its job.
The mainstream needs to wake up and shine a spotlight on Mayor Breed and the Police Officers Association waging war to destroy the District Attorney and his effort to bring Progressive Justice to this town.
A town which sadly is “Progressive” in name only.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said Sunday that last week’s school board recall election was mainly a result of parents frustrated about a slow reopening of in-person instruction during the COVID pandemic.
In a Sunday interview on NBC’s Meet the Press, Breed told host Chuck Todd the school board recall election that ousted three members on Tuesday was not a “Democratic, Republican issue” but instead about parents who were upset that the board did not focus of bringing students back into classrooms.
Todd also asked Breed whether she expects there will be “a crossover” from voter frustration in last week’s school board election to District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s recall election on June 7, and whether she will support the recall. Breed backed the effort to recall the three school board members.
“I haven’t made a decision one way or another about the (D.A.) recall,” the mayor said. “I’m still debating on whether or not I will, but ultimately what I want to be able to do is make sure that the decision I make is not an impediment to my ability to work with the district attorney in keeping San Franciscans safe.”
Breed answered that “people are definitely frustrated about accountability” in their “concerns around crime” in the city, but she didn’t draw a direct line between the two elections.
