Legend reportedly lives in Beverly Hills. Boudin is going into a recall election in June after an unprecedented spike in crime, making Legend’s endorsement controversial.”In San Francisco, CA, Chesa Boudin is fighting a recall. I endorsed Chesa for DA when he ran for election, and I support him now,” Legend wrote.An Asian American man who was violently attacked in 2019 is suing Boudin, accusing the prosecutor of mishandling the case against his assailants – a father and son who beat him with a bat, threatened him with a glass bottle and told him: “I’m going to kill you,” court papers show. Anh Lê’s lawsuit against Boudin was filed just one day before the San Francisco Police Department announced an astonishing 567% increase in hate crimes against Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) individuals. Neither of the two men was charged with a hate crime, the lawsuit states. Legend is a longtime ally of the Democratic Party, offering appearances and support for DNC events and fundraisers.

The law enforcement officers’ names, however, are still on the Brady List, which tracks law enforcement officer’s credibility and misconduct problems. “Oftentimes, at most police departments if you end up on Brady your chances for a promotion or even staying employed within the police department are gone for good,” Ali Soheilian, president of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association Fairfax County Chapter, told Fox 5. Lt. Christopher Blaine and Lt. Mona Williams wrote up the official report for an incident at a courthouse on Sept. 28 after George Soros-backed Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano and his chief deputy Kyle Manikas reached the required security checkpoint.
