Washington, D.C. (June 8, 2022)— Yesterday, San Francisco voters recalled District Attorney Chesa Boudin, with 61% voting for the recall. Boudin had served as District Attorney since January 2020 and was known for his progressive and lenient criminal justice policies.
Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, issued the following statement in response:
“After two years of a progressive soft-on-crime District Attorney it seems that San Francisco voters have finally realized that they don’t like rampant crime in their city. Despite how Boudin or liberals may try to spin this and blame conservatives, San Francisco is firmly a Democrat city, with 85% voting Democrat in the last election. This recall shows that voters are waking up to the failed politics of progressive liberals. Our latest campaign, Rock the Woke, is dedicated to helping all Americans see how wokeness is destroying America. We want to ensure that San Francisco is only the beginning in America’s rejection of woke politics.
Across the country Democrats have failed their constituents by abandoning common sense policy for progressive woke ideology. With midterms coming up, I hope this sends a message to other liberal voters that if they want what’s best for their towns, cities, and states that it’s time to give up blindly voting for a candidate because of their party affiliation. There’s a phrase, that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. I think it’s time for liberal voters to give up on their particular brand of partisan insanity.
