Los Angeles Prosecutors Overwhelmingly Want to Oust Their Progressive Boss George Gascon

Rank-and-file prosecutors in Los Angeles have voted nearly unanimously to back the recall of District Attorney George Gascón — a rebuke of the embattled progressive that came just after Gascón reversed course on controversial sentencing policies. The Association of Deputy District Attorneys for Los Angeles, a union representing line prosecutors, said 97.9 percent of its members had voted to back a burgeoning effort to oust Gascón a little over a year after he took office. The union has regularly clashed with Gascón in the year or so since he has been in office.

Gacson should resign, but he won’t.
