Such a shame people in the county didn’t do their due diligence when re-electing Becton. Another 2.2 million of our tax dollars going to a discriminatory DA. Knox was a far better choice and representation.
Research and then vote people! Don’t look at the political ads or signs to base your voting on.

Agree with Disgusted. Of course the Board of Supervisors started this mess by appointing her in the first place in spite of the fact that she plagiarized parts of her application. Double disgusted.

So, I am waiting to hear from those supporters of DA Becton, who argued that since the Town of Danville paid millions in settlement regarding the actions of the Danville Police Officer, she must have been right in also criminally prosecuting him. ..Crickets...Based on your own logic, the fact that the County paid millions in settlement to those victims who DA Becton illegally discriminated against in her own office, that means she must have committed those acts..Of course, they waited until shortly after the election to pay those victims who DA Becton illegally discriminated against, which is par from the course for someone who was caught plagiarizing her application for DA...It is time to recall DA Becton, now, before her illegal discrimination against her own office, and pro-criminal policies further endanger public safety in our county.

D - someone more scrupulous would have resigned to maintain the integrity of the office at this point.
