LA Deputy DA John McKinney announced his candidacy to remove George Gascon today with John & Ken.
After 25 years in the DA's office, Deputy DA John McKinney announced his candidacy for Los Angeles County District Attorney and will challenge DA George Gascón in 2024.
McKinney said it is time for a change in leadership and direction.
"I'm running to secure the future of LA. We're at a crossroads now where we have a district attorney who refuses to follow the law, apply the law, he has removed public safety as a legitimate concern of the district attorney, he has ignored victims and all of this has resulted in rise in crime in the form of record number of homicides, in recent memory, thefts are out of control. The people are having to make lifestyle changes, for example, people won't leave the house with their everyday jewelry on. It's just chaos on our streets and chaos in the district attorney's office," McKinney told FOX 11 News.
