I’m curious (and admittedly ignorant)… what do public officials like Chesa do with their career after recall events like this most recent one?

Glad somebody was able to talk some sense into him, what a breakthrough.

The only boudin that SF is known for should be the sourdough, let’s make sure we keep it that way!!

Even Chesa Boudin now acknowledges that the Chesa Boudin approach to the DA's office was not something that could appeal to SF residents in an election. Wonder if there will still be any Chesa simps out there after this...

He should open up a Boudin's somewhere but only hire convicts.

Boudin for DA was always a bad fit.

His personality and politics is not suited for being a DA.

Going back to the Public Defenders office and heck, if he wants reform, maybe as BOS, but not as DA.

You want a DA interested in prosecuting criminals. If you want reform, doing at the legislative level like the BOS or heck even as Mayor.

Good. We voted you out for a reason. Bye Felicia!

It was bizarre that people were claiming that since the recall got a large amount of “no” votes (more than the # of first-place votes in his original picture election?) he could win if he ran again

by that logic the dems may as well ran Hillary again in 2020

Maybe he’ll take this time out of office to reflect on why voters rejected him and his policies? Probably not, he’ll double down and think of even more radical policies than before. Keep this man out of power. Lol.

I voted against the recall for procedural reasons, but I would also vote against him in favor of pretty much anyone qualified in a regular election.
