San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is the district attorney that the city asked for. He never met a criminal he wanted to incarcerate, but as “60 Minutes” explained, few prosecutors “have been as directly touched by incarceration” as Boudin. Boudin’s heart burst when then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo commuted the sentence of his father, who as a member of the Weather Underground took part in a 1981 robbery of Brink’s armored truck that left two police officers and a security guard dead. With both of his parents in jail, Boudin was raised in Chicago by Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, from whom he learned all about the justice system.

Boudin is currently facing a recall effort. More than 50 attorneys and other staff have left the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office since Boudin took charge, with one calling it “like the Titanic.”

The San Francisco Examiner is warning voters against recalling Boudin — if they do, Fox News might celebrate.

Oh no.

As someone pointed out, who’s to say that Boudin’s replacement would be any less lenient on criminals? San Francisco already voted for this guy once.
