Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer called out Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon and “woke” officials with “soft on crime” policies on Tuesday.

“This is happening all over the country. We’re electing woke judges, woke prosecutors. Look, in my county, they’ve recruited an individual to run against me from George Gascon’s team. People need to go to and help me fight back this wokeness. It is, Dana. We’ve got to stop this. Thank goodness for Fox News and the fact you are actually telling people about what’s going on in our communities. It is out of control,” Spitzer told Fox News.

Spitzer is running for re-election in Orange County with his slogan being “No LA in OC.” His message is that if his progressive challenger, Peter Hardin, becomes Orange County District Attorney, his policies will be identical to Gascon’s.

As Gascon is facing a recall in Los Angeles, Spitzer is promoting his campaign slogan to keep Orange County one of the safest places to live in California.

17 criminal organizations in Los Angeles are targeting wealthy communities, robbing citizens of watches, jewelry, and other luxury items.

Capt. Jonathan Tippet told the Los Angeles Times he has never seen anything like the crime being committed currently in Los Angeles.

“There’s no chance or opportunity for these victims even to comply … In my 34 years on the job, I’ve never seen anything like this.”

In a Santa Monica neighborhood, the United States Postal Service recently suspended its service following attacks on mail carriers. Santa Monica Police Department is familiar with the suspect, due to encounters they have had with him previously, CBS reported.

“My immediate reaction was just disappointment … frustration,” said Courtney Smith, an affected resident.

These crimes have taken place under Gascon, which Spitzer has highlighted in his campaign.
