    If guilt by association is the best smear available, Gallegos has already lost. A significant portion of Democrats are unhappy with him.

    But I hear that BOTH of the unhappy Dems are meeting with Paul to work it out.

    This is weak, H. There are just as many odious juxtapositions involving Gaggy.

    Paul has been condescending in his interviews. He has become a little god in his own mind maybe. I don’t know. I am not sure how I will vote on this. It may be time to try someone new in the DA’a office.

    Sorry A-Nony-Mouse, but there is a large continent of Democratic environmental consultants who want Gallegos out. The story that gets me is the one about how lawyers often switch clients right before entering the courtrooms, literally reading up on their cases as they walk inside.

    The outcome of the D.A. election depends solely on where the Paul Hagen vote goes.

    Salzman has been out sticking bumper stickers on sign posts? Did he put them on parking meters this time, too? Hilarious.

    environmental consultants??? you mean the ones working for Security National?
    All of the environmental attorneys of worth are opposed to Allison Jackson.

    Anyone who thinks having Rose Welsh’s choice of DA’s would be good for a healthy society is one sick puppy. Chris Crawford we know. The far right, the Teabaggers and all of Bass and Sundberg’s supporters we know, but folks who consider themselves liberal would never support Jackson, at least not if they knew the woman.

    That looks like it could be Rose’s sign post since she was / is a supporter of all 3. Her post today gives credence to Mresquans funny about her really being Salzman.

    Can anyone give me some specific reasons for thinking Jackson would be worse than Gallegos in the office of District Attorney?

    She lied about getting an endorsement from Betty Chin, then made up a story about Betty being harassed for wanting her name off the endorsement list.

    Remember this equation. It will come in handy as the campaigns ramp up.

    Will H expose ALL candidates’ lies? Or will some liars get a free pass?

  22. September 22, 2010 at 10:48 am

    I asked Allison Jackson how she voted on Proposition 8 and if she supports marriage equality. She finally responded after I sent her two emails and made one phone call. Her eight word answer to both questions is this:

    “The answer is, I support equality for all.”

    Paul Gallegos, on the other hand, promptly replied and in detail explained that he fully supports marriage equality and voted no on Proposition 8.

    Thanks for the anwers the the question I asked at 9:47.

    Let me be a little more specific. Did Jackson do anything wrong during the time she was working with the County’s CAST unit to ferret out and punish child abusers? For example, did she prosecute many people who turned out to be innocent or did she persecute people by going over her legal authority to pursue them?

  25. September 22, 2010 at 11:05 am

    Instead of rolling your eyes, trying using your brain. There are many reasons why a district attorney should be on the right side of civil rights. Write to me off list if you want me to give you a few.

    Well, Joe, seeing as your research revealed both candidates support civil rights, I don’t see your point.

  29. September 22, 2010 at 11:22 am

    For one thing, it speaks to the responsiveness of the candidates to the constituents.

    I’ve heard AJ has done a great job at getting 100+ year sentences for child abusers, but not always for the victim’s benefit–when they are forced onto the stand to testify.

    Paul definitely needs to improve.
    Alison is a wing-nut, talk to her sometime ask ask her about the law. Unbelievable! How did she pass the bar?

    Rarely does one have the experience of seeing so many uninformed people gather in one place. Perhaps it’s the quality of the reading material, which in this case at least is certifiably inane.

    “The answer is, I support equality for all.”

    …under the law.

    That is not same as support or not support of the right for gay marriage.

    8:50 you are hung by your own words, ” the story that gets me” You have no idea if it’s true. You’re willing to repeat anything that smears Paul, whether it’s a lie or just made up. Rumors are cheap and plentiful at election time, aren’t they.
    I think the point is that DAs have to make decisions about whether they can win a case with the evidence they have. If the evidence is weak or otherwise compromised, a plea bargain often secures punishment (jail time) without the risk of the perp getting off on the “beyond a shadow of a doubt” part.
    So unless you know all the details, don’t be the source of lies.
    Now if Allison thinks she can take every accused to trial, she’s in for some rude shocks. For one thing, the courts are already clogged. For another, there’s no way she can claim to have sufficient evidence for every accused. And then there’s the “innocent until proven guilty” thing. In her mind they’re all guilty? Now there’s protection of our rights that I don’t want to get near!

    Which would need no explanation if ya’ll would use a pseudonym other than “Anonymous.”

    I have tried, Heraldo. I have tried.

    I chose a pseudonym that was an oxymoron, one I was sure would evoke a certain wry laughter in your readers. It did not. Calling myself “The Great Anonymous” only got me a harvest of resentment from commenters who mistakenly thought I was trying to hoist myself up onto an undeserved pedestal. So I went back to being one of the unnumerable Anonymouses. Sadder but wiser, I realized I am no damn good at choosing pseudonyms.

    Help me out. How long can my pseudo-moniker be? I’d like it to accurately reflect my personality and political and social beliefs, so I may need rather more space than some pseudononymous commenters use.

    It’s too bad that Allison Jackson, a much better choice for DA than Gallegos, is saddled with Rose as a supporter.

    Please try to forget that at the polls. Vote for Jackson.

  48. Plain Jane
    September 24, 2010 at 8:42 am

    The problems with Jackson are the very reasons Rose is a supporter, Largo. She has smeared, lied, and connived for years to become DA. She wouldn’t get my vote if she was the only one on the ballot.

    September 24, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Yet the person I know best who has actually worked with Jackson says she is an honorable and intelligent person who did a lot of great work prosecuting child moleters who otherwise might not have been stopped.

    No matter what clever name you choose it won’t compensate for dumb ass idiotic stupid comments or ranting posts. So get off your high horse trying to project some phony image as if anyone really cares what pseudonym you have. But its really all about you isn’t it? Well how about a short name as a convenience so anyone replying can type just a few letters?

    Ever think about considering someone else in your deep ponderings for the “perfect” name. You know there’s an old saying “the perfect is the enemy of the good enough”. How about “Can’t Decide”?

    Wait til/if Jackson gets elected. You think she won’t lie, too, or at least be accused of it?
