Three More Cities Vote ‘No Confidence’ In Progressive L.A. County D.A. Gascón Amid Recall Threat

 

As organizers of an effort to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón say they are working closely with county officials to finalize the petition, three more cities declared “no confidence” in the progressive prosecutor this week.

“City leaders are beginning to see what citizens and victims have known: George Gascon threatens the safety of our communities with his pro-criminal policies and actions,” read an email blast from Victims of Violent Crime for the Recall of District Attorney Gascón. “Together, we can recall George Gascon and stop his soft on crime policies that are not providing justice for victims.”Lancaster, La Mirada, and Whittier city councils all approved resolutions on Tuesday night, following previous similar moves by elected leaders in Beverly Hills, Pico Rivera, and Santa Clarita.

“The City Council’s that have pursued these symbolic, pointless, and partisan attempts to aid a floundering recall effort are tiny islands of red in LA County’s sea of blue,” Max Szabo, who has served as a spokesman for Gascón, told The Daily Wire. “Like the tough-on-crime policies of the 1980s and 1990s which focused on punishment at the expense of our safety, racial disparities, and limited public resources, they are destined to fail miserably.”

The Antelope Valley Press reported, the Lancaster City Council approved the proposal 4-0-1, with one councilman abstaining. According to the outlet, “the resolution cited three policies Gascón implemented after he took office in December following his victory against incumbent Jackie Lacey in the Nov. 3 election.” Those policies included sweeping changes for cash bail and eliminating sentence enhancements – a reform Gascón later amended after public outcry.
