Revolutionaries join San Diego DA race

Bernie’s revenge

Real Justice PAC is using peer-to-peer texting campaign for DA candidate Genevieve Jones-Wright.
Real Justice PAC is using peer-to-peer texting campaign for DA candidate Genevieve Jones-Wright.

Real Justice PAC, a political action committee of former Bernie Sanders operatives backing the district attorney candidacy of Genevieve Jones-Wright, has rolled out the beginning of a so-called peer-to-peer texting campaign on her behalf, an April 9 disclosure filing with the county’s Registrar of Voters shows. “We organize mass participation through volunteering, door-knocking, calling voters and peer-to-peer texting in order to get the word out about a candidate and this platform,” the group’s Becky Bond, a coauthor of Rules for Revolutionaries, a political organizing guide, told Mic.com last year.

Ninety thousand dollars from Real Justice is credited in part for the March 6 success of Democrat Joe Gonzales, who prevailed over Democratic District Attorney Nicholas “Nico” LaHood with a 20-point margin of victory in a San Antonio, Texas primary. “We collaborated on strategy, pitched in on tech, and raised the hard dollar contributions from individual donations needed to fund the effort,” Bond told the San Antonio Express. Since March 29, according to its filing here, the political action committee has spent less than $2000 on the San Diego campaign.

Meanwhile, the GOP Lincoln Club is ramping up for some major spending of its own, channeling $50,000 on April 4 to an affiliated committee called Job Creators for a Strong Economy. A political takedown specialist, the fund’s torrent of late hit pieces played a key role in 2016’s defeat of Democratic county supervisor Dave Roberts by Republican Kristin Gaspar.


La Jolla has been free of violence in its schools but has long been known for its high-dollar jewelry store heists. Thus, when La Jolla Elementary went into an April 5 trial lockdown, talk of shooting and guns was strictly discouraged. “We do lockdown drills to practice responding to the bell signal, and what would happen should we have an actual situation where we would lock down the campus,” principal Donna Tripi explained in an email to parents following the event. “Students are told that there could be a situation like a robber on the loose in the village, and we would have to keep them safe. We do not discuss shootings as we think this would produce fear and anxiety.”

I met with Jones-Wright at the Activist San Diego meeting on Monday. A real grass-roots evangelist. Smart and passionate, she speaks for minorities and ordinary citizens (as opposed to the incumbent and various predecessors). Her enthusiasm has been noticed and she's polling well.

Unfortunately the beautiful Genevieve Jones-Wright is a public defender and has never prosecuted a case or administered an office. The whole point of the District Attorney's office, with 400 lawyers, is to prosecute crimes against the people. I would feel better about voting for her if she were running for judge.

Throngs of La Jolla High School students hit the bricks at the intersection of Nautilus Street and Fay Avenue today at 10 a.m. to protest gun violence, to seek political change in permissive gun laws and to commemorate the deadly shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado 20 years ago. Passing motorists honked in solidarity and the kids cheered. An entire post-Columbine generation of children have grown up with lock-down drills like the one described here at La Jolla Elementary. Time for a change.
