DA Candidates Ask Gascón to Recuse Himself from 'Run, Ed, Run' Investigation

DA George Gascón

Three challengers of interim District Attorney George Gascón in this year's DA's race are calling upon him to recuse himself from a potential investigation of criminal wrongdoing by the committee behind the campaign to draft Mayor Ed Lee to run for a full term.

Last week, retired Judge Quentin Kopp wrote to Gascón asking that he convene a grand jury to look into violation of elections law by Progress for All, the committee that launched the highly visible Run, Ed, Run campaign. Earlier this week, Lee announced that he would, in fact, enter the race.
