A George Soros-backed lawless District Attorney, Chesa Boudin, in San Francisco was successfully recalled last night in a huge victory for the leftist city:

SF CHRONICLE – San Francisco voters overwhelmingly voted to remove District Attorney Chesa Boudin from office on Tuesday, favoring a recall effort that argued his progressive reforms were too lenient and made the city less safe.
Boudin trailed by about 20 percentage points Tuesday evening, according to the latest figures from city elections officials. Around 60% of San Franciscans who cast ballots voted to recall him.
Boudin will be removed from office 10 days after the Board of Supervisors formally accepts the election results. The city’s more moderate mayor, London Breed, will choose his immediate replacement, and voters will elect a new district attorney in November.
The result comes as little surprise to residents following numerous polls, almost all of which predicted a decisive defeat for Boudin.
Boudin will depart the office after serving two and a half years of his four-year term.
According to the American Thinker, Boudin was basically a child of the Weather Underground:
Boudin comes by his leftism honestly, being descended from a long line of leftist academics and activists. His parents, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, were members of the Weather Underground, a Marxist terrorist group during the 1960s, and were the getaway drivers of the cars used in the 1981 Brink’s robbery in New York that left three men dead (a Brinks guard and two police officers). When Boudin was a toddler, his parents were arrested and convicted, with his mother getting 20 years to life and his father getting 75 years to life.
His parents handed Chesa over to Obama’s mentors, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, both of whom had also been members of the Weather Underground, and they become his surrogate parents. Boudin attended Yale for both his undergraduate and law degrees. So again, he was marinated in leftism.
Once he passed the bar, Boudin worked as a public defender. He then realized that he could reform the criminal justice system better from the inside than the outside and in 2019, with $620,000 from various George Soros entities, he ran for the San Francisco District Attorney’s office.
Boudin was open about his reforming zeal. He promised to eliminate cash bail, establish a special unit to re-evaluate wrongful convictions, oppose any requests for assistance from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and work on decarceration (that is, getting criminals out of prison, not into it). In other words, the typical pie-in-in-the sky promises that, if the government is nice to criminals, they will stop committing crimes. A slim majority of 50.8% of the City’s voters got him into office.

You know, this reminds me of when San Francisco’s leftist policy of allowing people to go nude backfired when people actually started going nude everywhere. The city had to then ban nudity unless you were in a parade or something.
Boudin’s leftist ideals probably sounded good to a lot of people, but just like so much leftism, the reality of his policies were disaster for the city and people and they had to dial it back.
The funny thing about this is the same thing is about to happen to another leftist DA in Los Angeles:
