Brown Calls on Poochigian to Apologize for Attack on Fresno Police
Yesterday Poochigian bitterly attacked the Fresno Police Officers Association because they recently endorsed Jerry Brown. While being interviewed on KMJ 580 Radio, Poochigian falsely accused Fresno Police Officers of deception and “backtracking” during an interview with talk show host Ray Appleton.

The Fresno Police Officers Association announced their endorsement on June 7, when Brown hosted a series of statewide meetings with key law enforcement groups. In addition to the Fresno Police Officers Association, the Kern County Law Enforcement Association, the San Diego Deputy Sheriffs and PORAC all endorsed Brown for Attorney General.
Bitter about the outcome of the endorsement, Poochigian accused the Fresno police of deception and “backtracking” saying “it is human nature to try and cover your tracks but its very disappointing that a law enforcement organization, that the leadership would, you know, suggest something that’s totally untrue to try to defend their actions.”
