Breitbart News reports that the Beverly Hills City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to support recall efforts aimed at Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, whose “criminal justice reform” efforts just happen to coincide with surging crime.
Left-wing billionaire financier George Soros poured millions of dollars into Gascón’s 2020 campaign, one of many prosecutorial races in which Soros backed left-wing activists, often against incumbent Democrats with more traditional law-and-order policies.
The Beverly Hills Council cited an increase in widespread crime, including follow-home robberies and smash and grab robberies as a reason to recall Gascón. Several high-end Beverly Hills retailers were targeted late last year in “mass looting” events, similar to those in San Francisco and Chicago.
Last month, Gascón held a celebratory press conference to tout his achievements as district attorney, including reducing prison sentences for accused murderers and other violent criminals — and was met with a barrage of questions from reporters about the ongoing violent crime wave, which Gascón dismissed.
