Left-wing San Francisco DA faces recall petition amid crime spike

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is facing a recall campaign amid a crime spike in the liberal city.

Richie Greenberg – a former mayoral candidate for the Golden Gate city – launched the petition to recall the city’s far-left district attorney, citing unsafe streets and Boudin’s soft-on-crime policies.

The Committee Supporting the Recall of District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced Tuesday that they had been authorized by the Department of Elections to start gathering signatures on the petition.

“Law-abiding, fed-up citizens are pushing back against activist district attorneys who’ve gone too far and are destroying our cities,” Greenberg said in a release.

“People are dying, our streets are dangerous, our homes are targets, business owners close shop and flee due to an unworkable environment. San Francisco is united in its desire to move on from the failure of Mr. Boudin’s experiment,” he added.
