Duffy fears San Diego will turn into Amsterdam West

U.S. attorney Laura Duffy, though an Obama appointee, backed DeMaio over Filner in the mayoral election.
U.S. attorney Laura Duffy, though an Obama appointee, backed DeMaio over Filner in the mayoral election.

United States Attorney Laura Duffy, who has been waging a lengthy war against medical marijuana in San Diego — along with the city’s current mayor — is calling for reinforcements. During last year’s campaign, the Obama appointee gave money to the cause of GOP mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio and publically dissed his opponent, congressman Bob Filner. It was said that Duffy and more than a few of her prosecutors feared that the liberal Democrat would turn San Diego into Amsterdam West. Whether or not her latest move can be laid to the subsequent triumph of Filner — who last week declared his own battle of sorts against the federal government on behalf of the pot parlors — or just a growing crime agenda here, Duffy is advertising for new help. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office is currently seeking attorneys for a limited number of Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) positions in the Criminal Division for both its San Diego and Imperial County offices,” says the job notice. “The Criminal Division caseload includes a large volume of drug and immigration cases, along with a variety of such other federal offenses as major narcotics cases involving Mexican drug trafficking and money laundering organizations, terrorism offenses, bank robberies, child pornography, postal theft, credit card fraud, murder for hire, counterfeiting, organized crime, money laundering, computer crimes, and other sophisticated white collar fraud offenses (such as defense procurement fraud, health care fraud and environmental fraud).”

Newbies need not apply: “Applicants must currently be an Assistant United States Attorney serving on a permanent appointment and must have at least two years of relevant legal experience with [the] Department of Justice, with most successful candidates having more than two years’ experience.” And job seekers will have to get to town on their own: “Relocation expenses will not be paid.” Applications are due January 18.

Idiots wasting taxpayer dollars once again.

She needs to go! California has spoken and we legalized mmj! We will soon legalize it for recreational use. If she doesn't like it she can gtfo.

I fear Duffy will turn San Diego into a 1936 Germany....................with her the Supreme Nazi Leader.

I've never seen such a bipolar political situation; the State says it's legal; the Fed says it's not; and the mayor says let's all sit down, chill, and pass the pipe. I like this new mayor.

I think Obama needs to call off the dogs. He smoked weed back in the day and he's said as much. He should know better and put those resources someplace else where they're needed and might do some good. This is just a stupid waste of time and money.

Duffy and Dumanis both need to go...neither one gives a rat's posterior about justice. They're politicians who build their careers by destroying lives of others.

From over-charging to force plea deals, going after their political enemies while ignoring blatant corruption amongst their friends, and refusing to ever prosecute even the most abusive police, they are reflective of the collapse of America's justice system.

Don't leave out Dumbass's FABRICATION of evidence in a 1st Degree murder trial either. That should have not only got her disbarred but sent to the slapper for 5-10.

And we cannot forget her conclusion that the poor woman who was bound hand and foot and then hung had actually committed suicide...

Dumanis and her office is evil. Plain and simple. They frame innocent people for murder, and proclaim obvious murders to be suicides...while using the SWAT team to bust medical marijuana collectives.

Ideology is blinding these prosecutors from reality, causing them to commit gross injustices...the opposite of what they are supposed to be doing.

I happen to have met and worked with Godwin himself, and I'm sure even he would approve of my calling this situation alarmingly "fascist".

Laura Duffy is an ugly, stupid c**t. Although I am a fan of Obama, I hate this appointment. Please dump her useless ass. She is picking low hanging fruit just like the lazy bottom of her law class that she was. Carpetbagging parasite, San Diego deserves better. She passes her time in office chasing pot shops while the real crime is overlooked. She's a joke. Just ask anyone in the legal profession.

Although I am a fan of Obama, I hate this appointment.

US Attorney jobs, like MOST high level gov jobs, are political patronage jobs.
