The campaign to recall George Soros-backed Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced Wednesday that it had gathered the 566,857 voter signatures necessary by the deadline to put a recall on the ballot in the next election.
The announcement came a week after San Francisco recalled its own left-wing district attorney, Chesa Boudin, Gascón’s successor in that city, and also received $100,000 from Gascón’s political action committee to fight that recall.
In a press statement, the campaign to recall Gascón said:
Today, the Recall DA George Gascon campaign announced it has surpassed 566,857 signatures collected as of June 14th, which equates to 10% of registered voters in Los Angeles County and is the required threshold to officially initiate a recall. This is the most signatures ever collected in Los Angeles County for any petition.
The campaign is now focused on collecting as many additional signatures as possible to ensure there is a necessary cushion to cover those that are invalidated by the Registrar. The goal is to ultimately submit 650,000 – 700,000 total signatures, or even more if possible.
Gascón is one of some 75 prosecutors across the U.S. funded by left-wing billionaire financier Soros who have pushed “criminal justice reform” and the radical agenda of the Black Lives Matter movement as crime has risen.
