Thank you Mr. Alexander for saying what needed to be said. LaDoris Cordell's conduct during the recall campaign was shameful. In the service of a judge's political career she falsely accused a crime victim of lying about writing her own victim impact statement, excused Persky's leniency by pointing to the victim's intoxication, and repeatedly accused the recall campaign of dishonesty while making false statements herself such as the one cited in this letter. Judge Persky deserved his fate as much for the campaign he tolerated and ran as for his sentence of Brock Turner. I'm sure that Cordell and others like her cost Persky many votes, and perhaps his job.

Yes she went way over the line on the recall. I suppose she liked Judge Persky and got carried away. That doesn't erase the good things she did in the past remember. Everybody is a mixed bag.
