Group Working to Recall Los Angeles DA George Gascón Says it Now Has Required Number of Signatures

Just this week, two police officers were killed in Los Angeles by a known criminal who was set free thanks to the policies of George Gascón.

Now that San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin has been successfully recalled, all attention is turning to Los Angeles DA George Gascón, who is essentially cut from the same cloth as Boudin.

The people organizing the effort to recall Gascón are now saying that they have collected the necessary number of signatures to move forward with their plan.

FOX News reports:

Los Angeles DA George Gascon recall group says it has collected required signatures to put matter on ballot

The group working to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon said it has collected the necessary number of signatures required to put the matter before voters.

The Recall George Gascon campaign told Fox News it received over 30,000 petitions over the past few days in an effort to gather the 567,857 needed by July 6. The group said it hit the target Wednesday but is working toward collecting 650,000 signatures as some will likely be deemed invalid by the Los Angeles County officials.

“Simply clearing the required threshold is not enough – we must build the necessary cushion for signatures that are inevitably invalidated,” a campaign statement said. We are urging every registered voter in Los Angeles County to mail in their petition by no later than June 24 to ensure they arrive on time, or alternatively, drop them off at one of our permanent signing locations by June 30. The only thing that can stop us at this point is complacency.”…

The recall is the second attempt by supporters to oust Gascon, who came into office in December 2020 on a criminal justice reform platform.

Gascón has been under fire most recently for releasing a known criminal who just killed two police officers during a shootout.

Woke Los Angeles DA George Gascón has police officers’ blood on his hands

Two El Monte police officers in Los Angeles County, Michael Paredes and Joseph Santana, were murdered in cold blood earlier this week by a gang member who should have been behind bars but instead was free to kill thanks to the so-called progressive criminal-justice polices in vogue in America’s cities, courtesy of woke legislators and prosecutors.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, having spent a combined nine years as San Francisco’s DA and police chief, moved to LA and was elected to serve as its DA in 2020, bringing his pro-criminal policies with him.

Much of the responsibility for the murders of Cpl. Paredes and Officer Santana rests on Gascón’s shoulders.

The cop-killer in question, Justin Flores, who was also killed in the shootout with the two officers, had served two prison terms for burglary and car theft and pleaded no contest to possessing a firearm as a felon last winter.

A day before the shooting, Flores’ probation officer filed for a revocation hearing after the suspect allegedly assaulted his girlfriend the week prior, violating his probation. Instead of waiting for the hearing behind bars, he was allowed to walk free according to Gascón’s policies.

Gascón is trying to blame guns. It’s not going to work.

Of course, the liberal media is also doing what they can to defend Gascón. That’s not going to work either.

In December, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said we must “Recall, Remove & Replace Every Last Soros Prosecutor.”

It’s good to see an effort is finally being made to do just that.

Comments

It was not Particularly intelligent to announce that the 570k signature mark had been met. They want, and need, the additional signatures to overcome any efforts to prove the number of valid signatures has not been met. Telling people the threshold number has been achieved reduces the pressure on people to sign petitions. Taking “victory laps” before the race has been won isn’t a good formula for winning.

Just my $0.02.

    I find it interesting that they go to great lengths to validate every signature on a recall petition and make it against the law to validate signatures on absentee ballots.

    Says everything you need to know about the honestly of elections in the Pyrite State.

I’m curious to see whether the Soros people will seek to disqualify some of those signatures because they are from non-U.S. citizens.

Hope every T is crossed, I is dotted, signature is squared away because they will be looking with a magnifier glass at them, of course to vote Elmer J Fudd signature is ok and not to be questioned.

Personally, I hope Gascon survives the recall. The people of LA elected him, they deserve to live in the crime wave they voted for, for at least two more years.

Better collect a crapton more than that, minimum 50% extra. Otherwise, that snake will slip the trap. You can bet they’ll be vetting every single signature on that petition as much as they ignore them on ballots.

They had the required number for governor hairdo as well the problem was there not the ones that counted the votes

According to an LAPD cop and coworker with whom I spoke, Gascon was a somewhat incompetent cop when he was with LAPD.

He will leave a legacy of incompetence and avoidable deaths by violent crime. The blood of the two El Monte officers is on his hands.

    It’s a horror how many people have to die before Americans get their heads out of their behinds and see what a monster like Soros and the luntics of the demorcrat party are doing to our country.

are now saying that they have collected the necessary number of signatures

Doesn’t mean much, see Michigan.

Everybody knows that, in California, recall petitions are closely examined.

Here is where he ads insult to injury: He directs that the county pay for the funeral and burial of the killer of those 2 cops. The killer is the victim!
