Brown Act shadows Faulconer's plan for November election and run for governor

Stephan doesn't have to be elected, even if she runs as incumbent. As reported elsewhere (the U-T of all places) she was lead prosecutor in the Crowe case back when "Perfidious Paul" Pfingst was DA. In case you don't remember, it was that horribly botched case that cost Pfingst his reelection bid. Sadly his replacement was Bahnee. Just how Stephan managed to survive the purge of Pfingst loyalists and then prosper under this current regime isn't clear. She must be a hell of a politician in her own right. Any decent opponent will hang that Crowe case around her neck from day one, and keep reminding the voters about her, and the case that eventually cost the county over $7 million in a settlement with the family. I also remind anyone who has forgotten that the case was eventually taken over by the state attorney general who agreed that the boys were wrongfully accused, and who got a conviction against another perp. That conviction was, unfortunately, overturned on a technicality, and when retried, ended in acquittal. But she was right in the middle in perhaps the worst miscarriage of justice and botched police/prosecutorial work in many decades. In a turnabout of its usual stance, now that it is part of the LA Times, our U-T has editorialized twice that the supervisors should appoint an interim DA, and definitely not appoint Stephan. How 'bout them apples? She should not be a shoo-in at all.
