Arizonans will not soon forget notorious George Gascon, the Cuban-born, former Mesa Police Chief with a token law degree, who advocated limp enforcement policies for illegals. In 2009, he left Mesa for San Francisco where he was appointed police chief.
Within less than a year-and-a half, then-Mayor Gavin Newsom selected Gascon as the interim District Attorney when Kamala Harris — yes, that one — was elected Attorney General. Despite never trying a case, let alone prosecuting any, Gascon’s statement on his lack of qualification to be the District Attorney was telling. He said, “Running a D.A.’s office is not the same as prosecuting cases on the floor. They’re different skill sets. I believe I have the organizational skills, and I have an understanding of the criminal justice system not only today, but where we need to be in the future.”
Gascon’s vision of the future is lowering the standards for prosecution — allowing more criminals to go free — and giving free rein to illegal aliens entering the United States.
Finally, Californians have had their fill of laxity as brazen smash-and-grab thefts routinely occur everywhere from upscale department and jewelry stores to neighborhood Walgreen’s, causing many of the pharmacies to close. The Police Tribune reports homicide rates have skyrocketed 94 percent In Los Angeles County.
Breitbart News’ Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large, reports the campaign to Recall Soros-backed George Gascon has 400,000 Signatures, more than two-thirds the number necessary, That fact provides hope that even Californians have had their fill of the man known as “Gascan” while in Arizona.
Seeing Red AZ has frequently written exposed him. This is a sampling:
