Boudin, who was recalled by a 60%-40% margin as of Wednesday morning’s latest vote count, is Gascón’s ideological ally. In fact, Gascón — funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros in the 2020 election — donated $100,000 to Boudin from his political action committee.
The campaign to recall Gascón, which as of last week had reached 500,000 of the necessary 566,857 petition signatures necessary to force a recall election, issued a statement following Boudin’s recall Tuesday evening:
Tonight showed that voters from every community and every walk of life, regardless of political ideology, are rejecting pro-criminal policies that are masked as criminal justice reform. George Gascón and Chesa Boudin’s failed social experiments have destroyed communities while doing nothing to meaningfully reform the system. If LA County voters sign and return their recall petitions, Gascon will be walking the same plank in the very near future.
