In San Francisco, that meant the removal of DA Chesa Boudin (pictured), who was accused of being soft on crime. “Right-wing billionaires outspent us three to one,” he said in a defiant speech to supporters following news of the impeachment results, in which more than 60 percent of San Franciscans voted to impeach him. .

“They created an electoral dynamic where we were literally casting a shadow,” said Boudin, who narrowly won the job in November 2019 as part of a wave of awake prosecutors who vowed to seek alternatives to incarceration. The impeachment campaign against Boudin, which was funded primarily by local business groups, accused the lawyer of not doing enough to keep citizens safe and of introducing policies that allowed repeat offenders to commit crimes without fear of incarceration.

Republicans believe they can use anxiety about crime across the country to help them take control of the US Congress in the November midterm elections.  They are already running TV ads stressing that the nation's leaders need to be tougher.
