Recall LA County Sheriff Boca Now!

This is a plea with the people of Los Angeles County not to accept the disgrace that has been visited upon them by their elected Sheriff, Leroy D. Baca. His action in releasing Paris Hilton is a disgrace to all of America. But only those who live in LA County can properly punish the Sheriff by immediately recalling him from office at once.

Sheriff Baca was first elected in 1998. That is long enough. It will not be easy. Recall petitions must be signed by 10% of the number of registered voters in the county. That is a sizable number, but not impossible in the current circumstance.

Here is a handy guide to the California recall process as it applies to local officials. See particularly pages 14 - 27.

As soon as a recall effort is organized let us know. I, for one, will be more than willing to make a contribution.
