San Francisco voters reject soft-on-crime policies with ouster of DA Chesa Boudin


Mayor London Breed is tasked with appointing an interim district attorney.

Mary Jung, chair of the Safer SF Without Boudin campaign, declared victory in the recall.

“Election results show that San Franciscans and Democrats of all stripes, from every neighborhood, want new leadership to manage a DA’s office that has been in chaos. San Franciscans want leadership that holds serious, violent, and repeat offenders accountable while never forgetting the rights of victims and their families,” Jung said.

Miriam Krinsky of the pro Boudin group “Fair and Just Prosecution”, said that “DA Boudin was made a scapegoat for a city facing numerous societal challenges, many of which existed before he took office, some of which were the result of the unprecedented stresses of the pandemic and almost all of which are beyond the ambit of a prosecutor’s reach or role.”
