Soros-Funded DA Faces Recall Vote After Crime Ravages Blue County

Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price
by Robert Schmad


An effort to recall a George Soros-funded California district attorney has received enough signatures to advance, according to a county document.

Organizers seeking to oust Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price have collected 74,757 verified signatures in support of their effort to hold a recall election, over 1,000 more than needed, the Alameda County Registrar of Voters announced Monday. Save Alameda for Everyone, one of the primary committees campaigning for Price’s removal, argues that Price has been prioritizing offenders over victims, contributing to an uptick in crime in their community.

DCNF-logoPrice ran for election on a platform of reducing the number of people in prison, reducing sentences for offenders under the age of 25 and cracking down on alleged police misconduct, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Since Price took office in January 2023, crime has risen across Alameda County.

The spike in crime was particularly pronounced in the county’s largest city, Oakland. Violent crime rose by 21 percent in the city during the first ten months of Price’s term, according to police data.

Price’s 2018 district attorney campaign received $700,000 from the California Justice and Public Safety PAC, which is almost entirely funded by Soros. Price was unsuccessful in her 2018 run, but won when she ran again in 2022.

Since taking office in 2022, Price has implemented a number of reforms aimed at integrating racial and “restorative” justice into the county’s prosecutorial practices.

Employees in Price’s office were provided with training materials arguing that “the carceral state grew out of chattel slavery” and that “modern policing grew out of slave patrols.” The training also pushes a program that prioritizes “healing” and addressing root causes rather than punishment for offenders.

“Price has violated victims’ rights, ignored victim pleas and disrespected people who have been victimized by some of the worst crimes imaginable,” Save Alameda for Everyone’s website says. “She has told mothers that the lives of their children are worth less than the lives of the offender.”

Brenda Grisham, one of the campaign’s leaders, is the mother of a homicide victim, according to Save Alameda for Everyone’s website.

The Alameda County district attorney’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
