SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: San Francisco people voted out their woke district attorney Chesa Boudin in a recall election on Tuesday, June 7. People were reportedly fed up with Boudin's soft-on-crime policies after an increase in shoplifting, car break-ins and rampant, open-air drug dealing.

As per reports, the recall effort process against Chesa Boudin, "was supported by 61% of voters in early returns”. Boudin’s critics celebrated his defeat with Mary Jung, a chair of the recall campaign, saying: “This election does not mean that San Francisco has drifted to the far right on our approach to criminal justice. In fact, San Francisco has been a national beacon for progressive criminal justice reform for decades and will continue to do so with new leadership.”

But the 41-year-old former public defender blamed “right-wing billionaires” as well as the pandemic “and a city government that has failed to deliver on safety, housing and equity” for his removal, the Daily Mail reported. He added: “We have two cities. We have two systems of justice. We have one for the wealthy and the well connected and a different one for everybody else. And that's exactly what we are fighting to change.”

Earlier, Boudin had spoken to The Guardian regarding the recall election and noted, “This is a Republican- and police union-led playbook to undermine and attack progressive prosecutors who have been winning elections across the country. The playbook involves delegitimizing and fear-mongering and recalling. It's a tactic being used by folks who are increasingly unable to prevail in elections when they put forward their views about public safety and justice.”

“If these folks who are attacking my administration have the courage, they can run for district attorney next year and put their record, credentials and policy ideas to voters and see if their views are popular,” he claimed.

Meanwhile, Boudin’s dismissal has majorly been celebrated on Twitter with a user saying, “SeeYa Chesa @chesaboudin 🤣🤣🤣Good Riddance.” Conservative media pundit Ann Coulter tweeted: “The great thing about Chesa Boudin being recalled is .... it's the last time in his sorry life he will be.” “The idea that republicans have even a modicum of influence on San Francisco politics is laughable. It’s the most progressive city in the country. Chesa Boudin simply sucked at his job and he’ll soon be replaced with a better Dem,” another user remarked.
