Brooke Jenkins sworn in as successor to ousted San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin

In the wake of last month’s successful campaign to oust radical liberal San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, the progressive prosecutor’s successor, Brooke Jenkins, was sworn in on Friday following her appointment to the position by Democrat Mayor London Breed, as the Washington Examiner reports.

Jenkins, 40, served under her predecessor until resigning in 2021 to launch the recall campaign that ultimately resulted in the removal of Boudin from office – by a wide margin – over what many characterized as his excessively lenient treatment of drug offenders and those accused and convicted of violent crimes.

Explaining her opposition to Boudin during the recall campaign, Jenkins declared, according to Fox News, “He is failing to prioritize public safety. He has made political policy positions more important than what is necessary to protect the citizens of San Francisco. We are seeing lives actually be lost as a result of his failed policies.”

During a ceremony that followed her swearing on in Friday, Jenkins stated, “The paramount mission of the district attorney’s office is to promote public safety. And as your next district attorney, I will restore accountability and consequences to our criminal justice system here in San Francisco.”

“Violent and repeat offenders will no longer be allowed to victimize our city without consequence,” Jenkins vowed.

Among those who lauded the appointment of Jenkins to fill the role left vacant by Boudin’s recall was Steve Cooley, Los Angeles County District Attorney, who stated, “Brooke Jenkins is just what the city and county of San Francisco needs right now. They took an important first step in recalling Boudin. Now, it’s up to hear to restore credibility and professionalism to San Francisco’s criminal justice system.”

Boudin’s popularity began to plummet well ahead of the recall election, as many believed his policies were responsible for a rise in crime across the city, including the frequent, brazen ransacking of retail stores across San Francisco.

Accused of putting wokeness above his professional duties, Boudin came to office along with a host of other progressive colleagues in other cities who pledged to make criminal justice reform and “restorative” processes top priorities.

In departing his office, Boudin took a somewhat defiant stance by saying, “I am proud of the work we did to serve victims and to bring much-needed reforms and accountability to our justice system,” but unfortunately for him, over 60% of the electorate was far less impressed, and San Francisco will almost certainly be better off with him out of the picture.

Ingram said Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance now best represents her views for the future of Ohio.
Over the past year, more than one million voters have switched to Republican ahead of the midterms.
“Roughly 1.7 million Americans have changed their party affiliation over the past 12 months,” Fox News 
“Two-thirds of those have gone to the GOP, while just 630,000 have switched to the Democratic Party, according to the report,” it added.
The new shift appears to be part of a red wave that began last year with the election of Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin in Virginia that may soon sweep across the nation.
