I don't know that I have ever seen a District Attorney get more money from police & law enforcements sources in a shorter period of time - while more people are being brutalized & killed by those police than what I see right now in Sacramento.
She does their bidding. They support her. She takes all of the heat.
But her funding - it all comes from the police.
It's a metaphor. It's disturbing.
But the money trail behind it all is so much worse.
It's a greater percentage of funding than I could find for any other DA.
This is important.
She would soon be called on to investigate them. REFUSED.
Then, in October 2013, she got $2,500 from the Peace Officers Research Association of California, headquartered in Sacramento.
In December 2013, she took in $5,000 from the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association PAC.
In September, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association Public Works PAC gave $10,000 to her campaign yet again.
In 2014, she got the 1st of many HUGE loans, this one for $100,000 from a man named Michael Tsuchida.
He's a retired cop.
It's what happened next that is particularly disturbing and rather unprecedented for a DA - particularly one supported by Democrats in California.
What she did with the money is very problematic.
What's next is even worse.
This money that Sacramento DA Anne Marie Schubert is taking - hundreds of thousands of dollars - comes straight from the paychecks of police officers.
These are their union dues.
Of course they give them to her for a reason.
She took two more $50,000 loans from Michael Tsuchida - the retired Sacramento cop.
I've never seen that in my life.
It's as unethical as anything I've ever seen from a District Attorney.
Guess what it's for?
RENT, ELECTRICITY, and INTERNET.
They appear to be providing FREE OFFICE SPACE for her campaign
The State Auditor of California sent a memo to Sacramento DA Anne Marie Schubert recommending that she file criminal charges against the Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones.
Schubert, receiving cash & office space from him, declined.

I've never seen anything like it.
Sacramento County DA Anne Marie Schubert is bankrolled by law enforcement. Nearly half a million dollars.
No wonder she refuses to ever hold them accountable for ANYTHING.
