Soros-Funded LA DA Gascon Hit with 11 Primary Challengers amid Soaring Crime

Los Angeles County’s far-left District Attorney George Gascón has been hit with a whopping eleven primary challengers in his desperate bid for re-election.

Gascón, who is bought and paid for by leftist billionaire George Soros, is one of the most progressive soft-on-crime prosecutors in the country.

Since he was elected to the LA Country DA’s office, Gascón has overseen soaring crime rates in his district.

As a result, the Soros-funded prosecutor is facing almost a dozen opponents in the nonpartisan primary.

Those entering the race include prosecutors from Gascón’s own office seeking to replace him.

Local prosecutors Jonathan Hatami and Eric Siddall have thrown their hats into the ring against Gascón.

Former federal prosecutors Jeff Chemerinsky and Nathan Hochman have also joined the race.

A candidate must receive 50% of the vote or more to win the primary outright.

However, this would be an unlikely outcome with 11 individuals up for consideration, especially considering Gascón’s unpopularity.

Without a clear victory, the election will go to a runoff in November between the top two candidates.

Gascón, a Democrat, is facing criticism from all sides with accusations of disregard for public safety and an unwillingness to crack down on rampant crime.

Critics point to state laws, local ordinances, and law enforcement’s alleged unwillingness to follow through on cases as key obstacles to restoring law and order in the city.

Due to Proposition 57, approved by the voters of California in 2016, every minor convicted in adult court must receive an additional transfer hearing in juvenile court.

The transfer hearing will then determine if the individual should be tried as an adult.

In many cases, however, Gascón’s office chose not to participate in transfer hearings and the inmate would be released back onto the streets.

Last year, zero-dollar bail guidelines also took effect in Los Angeles County.

The rules allowed suspected offenders to be freely released for a range of crimes.

Many criminals arrested for some types of theft, assaults, and vandalism, among other offenses, are often set free.

Los Angeles County faces an uptick in brazen smash-and-grab crimes impacting retailers.

This comes amid criticism that these allegedly soft-on-crime policies are to blame for the region’s crime woes.

Prior to his role as district attorney, Gascón served as the district attorney of San Francisco and the chief of the San Francisco Police Department.

As a former police officer, he also served as the LAPD assistant chief and the chief of police in Mesa, California.

Gascón is one of the dozens of Soros-funded prosecutors positioned around the country, including Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, Cook County’s Kim Foxx, St. Louis DA Kim Gardener, and many more.

All of them have been accused of being too soft and have overseen soaring crime rates.
