HuffPo: Gallegos win keeps California progressive

The mega-blog Huffington Post reports on the Gallegos victory:

While Gallegos’s vision reaches beyond the boundaries of Humboldt County, he is very focused on the overarching needs of the community. Gallegos’ win, coupled with Kamala Harris’ victory as Attorney General, maintains California as a progressive state geared towards the betterment of its populace through a judicious approach.

    Yes, Paul is sueppressive.

    Judicious approach also means that those who don’t document evidence when they should, will generally lose. The law is less judicious now in many ways compared to yester-years.

    The costs are one reason; trial lawyers are another; the penal code system, prison system, etc… Yep, the only thing it seems that the judicial system is doing is creating jobs as compared to finalizing near immediate justice for the victims in most cases. Drag it along as attorneys so often do (when does a judge ever scold lawyers over intentional money laundering delays???) and make a wad of cash doing it. More national debt is all, nothing serious – scoff and cough.

    I’m delighted that Paul won to be our local D.A. The alternative was scary…but as a candidate for state office. I don’t think so. I think we should keep him right here.

    Yes, crooks, thieves & dopers everywhere are celebrating Kamala Harris’s victory.

    7:47 am,

    If so, so too for big bad blue and the California Corrections Community/employees all paid by tax dollars.

    When money, power and control are at the helm, government/officials consider it a win-win in the most narrow-minded view. Hey, what the heck though.

    Paul is not a progressive, he’s a libertarian. Looks like a progressive sometimes and definitely knows where his bread is buttered but he is very much a rich capitalist who believes in limited government and likes pot. His only progressive credential before becoming the DA was that he defended criminals.

    I can just see the party now. Dopers and thieves, Con-men and criminals of every stripe dancing in the streets for joy, getting stoned and running rampnt through the streets. Can you say,”BIG NET”?

    Respecting the law, including the passage of prop 215 does not mean that he “likes pot”. If you talk the pot lawyers they will all (every one of them) tell you that he’s tougher on pot crimes (folks who are not with in the law) then any other DA on the North Coast.

    Hey, I was worried about poor little Rose Welsh anyway, if Paul had lost. Now she has a reason to go on living for another four years.

    “As California slowly sinks into bankruptcy & ruin, …
    Gallegos win keeps California stupid.”

    um, a friend of mine was just saying the other day how it’s all his fault. I didn’t say anything, though.

    “As California slowly sinks into bankruptcy & ruin, remember this slogan.”

    I also think that it’s more than a bit demented to see law enforcement as a means of revenue. Really, what a freakish way of seeing how the DA’s office should work in county government. And they call it law and order.

    Gallegos got more votes than in any of his previous county elections. Jerry Brown & Bill Lockyer got more votes than anyone in the USA during the 2010 election.
    The Republican “tidal wave” of 2010 did not wet a single California Democratic toe.

    Well, yes, Gallegos got more votes in this fall’s election than he got in 2006. But that was a June election, whereas this was a November election. So his opponent this fall (Jackson) also got more votes than his opponent got in 2006 (Dikeman). Overall, Gallego’s percentage of the vote dropped by a couple of percentage points between 2006 and 2010. Still, he won the recent election by about 4 percentage points, a substantial though not overwhelming margin.

    What was the margin on the Marina Center again? “Substantial” or “Overwhelming”, Reasonable Anon?

    Without checking the County’s website, I think Measure N won with about 70%. If I have that number right, that’s clearly an “overwhelming margin,” otherwise known as a landslide.

    Given there was minuscule vocal opposition to Measure N, it is no wonder it was a “landslide”.

    Or, maybe there was minuscule vocal opposition because everybody knew it was going to win by a landslide. Politicians running for office, like Glass and Kuhnle, pretended to be for it because they knew being opposed would end any chance of winning they had. Citizens opposed to it, like many here, kept quiet because they didn’t want to be exposed as being so far out of the mainstream.

    I think Arkley wasted his money by running ads for it. The ads merely increased his vote from 60% to 70%.
