Summary

That the election went to a public defender — the only non-prosecutor of the four candidates — whose earliest memories are of visiting his parents in prison; was endorsed by Bernie Sanders and two leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement; and who outmatched Loftus, the current DA appointed by Mayor London Breed after George Gascón announced that he wouldn’t seek reelection last year, suggests that the heyday of “tough on crime” rhetoric winning DA races is over, at least in San Francisco, for now.Boudin joins a wave of recently elected “progressive prosecutors” across the country who, rather than promising to crack down on civilian lawbreakers, have vowed to end cash bail, rein in police misconduct, reduce jail and prison populations, and expand alternatives to incarceration. This was further evidenced by a series of recent scandals wherein several SFPD officers were found to have exchanged racist text messages with one another, including many containing the word “nigger.” These paired with a series of police shootings of black people — in particular, that of an unarmed 27-year-old female carjacking suspect in 2016 — prompted then–police chief Greg Suhr to resign at Mayor Ed Lee’s request.The criminal-justice system has for too long been America’s go-to answer for a staggering range of social ills. Time will tell whether they embrace the opportunity, or panic at the first mugging and go back to mindlessly feeding the system that’s so devastated their constituents.Yet ANOTHER Democratic candidate may join the frayFormer Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts has told Democratic officials that he is considering making a last-minute entry into the 2020 presidential race, according to two Democrats with knowledge of the conversations, the latest evidence of how unsettled the party’s presidential primary is less than three months before the Iowa caucuses.Mr. Patrick has told party leaders that he doesn’t think any of the candidates running have established political momentum and that he thinks there is an opening for somebody who can unite both liberals and moderate Democrats, according to Democrats who have spoken to him.At the same time, Massachusetts Democrats close to Mr. Patrick have started to reach out to prominent party leaders in early nominating states to alert them that he may run, according to one Democrat who has received an inquiry.Top four bunched up at the top in NHPod Save America’s mayor from prison?Rudy Giuliani is considering re-entering the impeachment fray by launching a podcast to provide impeachment analysis of the public hearings in the House of Representatives scheduled for later this week.Giuliani was overheard discussing the plans with an unidentified woman while at a crowded New York City restaurant, Sant Ambroeus, over lunch on Saturday. The people asked not to be identified and provided the audio recording on the condition that it not be published.Now Giuliani needs to weigh inThe backdrop for Trump’s Veterans Day speech in NYC todayViolence is ramping up again in Hong KongA man has been set on fire in Hong Kong only hours after a protester was shot by police with a live round, as the city experiences one of the most dramatic days in over five months of protests.Protesters began disrupting transit as early as 7 a.m. local time as part of a day-long general strike, and clashed with police in several locations. He won reelection in 2018 with 53 percent of the vote over Democrat Liuba Grechen Shirley.“Politically I will miss the energy and dynamism of a re-election campaign especially since my polling numbers are as strong as they have ever been and I have more than $1 million in campaign funds,” King said in his statement.When the Fraud Guarantee founder flipsCashless and confusedChina was never an easy place for tourists, but lately just about everything seems to have gone square-shaped—as in the payment-app QR code needed to unlock much of the Middle Kingdom.It’s how people hail taxis, consult doctors, pay for meals and book flights. According to the Nov. 8 poll, 4 percent of Democratic primary voters said the billionaire and former Republican would be their first choice for the party’s nomination to take on Trump next year — placing him above 10 candidates currently in the race.Haley lets 2024 voters know that she puts Trump over country, backs most of his foreign policy, and doesn’t think he should be impeachedTwo of President Trump’s senior advisers undermined and ignored him in what they claimed was an effort to “save the country,” former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley claims in a new memoir.Former secretary of state Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John F.
