Chesa Boudin just won a hotly-contested race to be San Francisco's DA. Our piece on his backstory and goals:
I'd bet that the @SanFranciscoPOA HELPED Boudin get elected, with this kind of odious campaigning sfchronicle.com/bayarea/articl…
@SanFranciscoPOA In some ways, perhaps in many ways, Loftus and Boudin weren't that far apart in policy. (SFPOA doesn't like her, or the previous DA either.) But Boudin is certainly in the camp of a Larry Krasner and other progressive DA's determined to overhaul the prosecutors offices.
@SanFranciscoPOA Also the SF DA's race was another interesting example of how ranked choice voting works differently than standard voting.
@SanFranciscoPOA For those of you not from SF, Chesa Boudin is a reformer public defender now DA, son of Weathermen, one of whom is still in jail. Raised by fellow Weathermen Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, whom you may remember figuring in early Obama controversies motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
