This story reports on two major answered prayers. First, we have reported and prayed many times about what lax crime policies have done to California, and especially San Francisco. We thank the Lord San Franciscans have had enough. We pray it sends a message to other cities that are tolerating violence that they need to keep their citizens safe. Second, this District Attorney was one of the many George Soros “chose” by donating excessively to his campaign. We praise God for this defeat of a radical Soros pick and pray that it will be the start of a trend. Voters in San Francisco have chosen to recall embattled District Attorney Chesa Boudin following a recall effort centred on his handling of rising crime across the city. San Francisco voted to recall Boudin with 61%, compared to 39% who wanted him to stay as the district attorney, according to results at the time the Associated Press called the race.

He faced an onslaught of criticism over his progressive criminal justice policies as those supporting his recall pointed to an increased murder rate, violent crime, shoplifting, burglaries, and an open-air drug trade as reasons to vote for his removal from office. Boudin’s supporters praised him for keeping his promises of eliminating cash bail, not prosecuting quality-of-life crimes and putting fewer people behind bars. He is the first San Francisco district attorney to be recalled, and only the second to face a recall election. After news of his loss, Boudin said at an election-night watch party that his push for progressive policies in criminal justice and prison reform was not over. “This is a movement, not a moment in history,” Boudin said. Boudin blamed his loss on corporate interests who outspent him “three to one” as he fought against the recall effort.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who in recent weeks has appeared skeptical of Boudin’s prosecutorial work but did not endorse his recall effort, will select his replacement. Another recall effort is in the works against Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, and the organizers believe Boudin’s loss should be a warning sign. “Tonight showed that voters from every community and every walk of life, regardless of political ideology, are rejecting pro-criminal policies that are masked as criminal justice reform,” said a representative of the Recall Gascon Campaign. “George Gascón and Chesa Boudin’s failed social experiments have destroyed communities while doing nothing to meaningfully reform the system. If LA County voters sign and return their recall petitions, Gascon will be walking the same plank in the near future.
