The NOT DUMANIS Facebook page recently sent D.A. Bonnie Dumanis an open appeal to consider dropping out of the mayor's race. The group, of which I am a member, suggested that Dumanis should graciously step aside now to save some political face.

NOT DUMANIS has relentlessly protested the D.A. — both online and at her campaign kick-off at the Electra building in late June, where a few picketers used a bullhorn and some signs to embarrass Bonnie in front of her powerful friends and wealthy sponsors.

In addition, even the LGBT newspapers are not shrinking from calling Bonnie "unlikable," and another online blog insinuated that the D.A. "lacks charm." Bonnie is in an unpromising third place for campaign funds raised-behind Carl DeMaio and Nathan Fletcher.

To add to the potential for disaster, the Nunez commutation hearing will now take place in Sacramento instead of San Diego — which may bode ill will for the prospect of Bonnie winning in court. There is also the issue of a big judgment coming down against the D.A.'s office for it's mishandling of the Cynthia Sommers case. The Marine widow has filed a $20 million dollar lawsuit alleging civil rights violations and Bonnie's D.A. office is named, along with the Feds and NCIS agents.

Terrie Best of NOT DUMANIS said that because Mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis has "used sick and dying medical marijuana patients (and others) as low-hanging fruit to pad her conviction rate," this is proof "she is not compassionate enough to be Mayor." Further, Terrie Best also alluded that "based on this culture of corruption around Bonnie Dumanis, the D.A. should drop out of the Mayor's race now."

The open appeal from NOT DUMANIS was also sent as a link on Twitter to @BonnieDumanis. The group also admonished Dumanis to "DROP OUT OF THE RACE! The NOT DUMANIS crew is ready to hound you till kingdom comes or, more fittingly in your case — till Hell freezes over!"

Being a member of the group, should you really be writing for pay?

Isn't Powell's open admission a de facto notice having the effect of cancellation of any appearance of conflict of interest?

What is needed, however, is a well-cited chronology of Dum anis' record and that of her gang.

Why save that face? Give her enough exposure to hang herself on her own petard--er, as it were . . .

Sadly, this wrong-headed prosecution does not rise to the level of outrage that the Dale Akiki and Wade prosecutions did, which cost ol' Ed Miller the job of DA. Ditto for the mangled effort by Pfingst in the Stephanie Crowe killing. And worse yet, Bahnee isn't running for DA again--she pulled that off recently and was unopposed--she's running for mayor. Given that this is for mayor of San Diego, which is one of the five worst governed cities in the state, there's no telling what voters think. IF the voters think at all. It is the city that elected in succession Golding, Murphy and now Sanders. That is a steady decline and she would be the next one to head for the cellar. Don't count her out; anyone who gets on her case can be accused of homophobia and the result could be that she gets a pass on all her bad prosecutions and also on all her failures to prosecute local corruption.

She may stand out as a safe, mediocre, compromise in a field of hoers.

SurfPuppy619: NOT DUMANIS is very hopeful that Cynthia Sommers can hold off until the MAYORAL RACE is in full swing next year and then serve this on the D.A.'s office! This case of Cynthia Sommers is totally indicative of just how Bonnie Dumanis operates as a top Prosecutor. She finds a vulnerable person (poor, single mom, ill medical marijuana patient) & then puts the screws to them in an effort to extract a quick plea out of them to pad her 94% "conviction rate." In the meantime, all Bonnie's rich cronies and well-connected pals go unpunished for their ill deeds that Bonnie the fixer overlooks. That is what's known as CORRUPT!
