Brown Calls on Poochigian to Apologize for Attack on Fresno Police

Jerry Brown today called on Chuck Poochigian to apologize for his attacks on the Fresno police saying, “I believe that Poochigian owes an immediate apology to the brave men and women of the Fresno Police Officers Association. Every day they put their lives on the line and patrol the streets of Fresno. That’s far different from Poochigian, who talks about crime from a well guarded chair in the California State Senate.”

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.”

The are UNIONS. Why would anyone expect them to support Poochigian?

Jerry Brown should apoligize to the State of California for eight years of failed leadership.

Jerry Brown is bringing his 1970's political style to this election. It won't work.

A whole new generation of voters does not know how he screwed up California and got us into this massive debt. He killed the judiciary and all the schools.

But don't worry, because Poochigian is not Rocky; he'll be funded enough to tell the story of Governor Moonbeam, the politician who re-invents himself for every election.

Jerry will be going down for the third time; he is yesterday's news.

The difference between Poochigian and Delgadillo is that Rocky had a minute chance of winning. Poochigian is a rabid worshipper of George W. Bush who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and melt the polar ice caps. Rocky was also better funded than Poochie Boy, and look what it got him -- a three million dollar whuppin.

(P.S. -- a whole new generation of voters isn't interested in what happened thirty years ago, but they do know that the GOP is destroying this country and this state TODAY. That is all that matters.)

Give up, Jerry. You're best days are behind you, and they weren't much.

Phil Krakover, who are you? I know you were the one insisting that Rocky would kick Jerry's butt, so you clearly don't have much political wisdom. And obviously you have a thing about Jerry that causes you to distort and lie. Did you know that the POLICE CHIEFS (management, not unions) interviewed both Jerry and the Pooch and overwhelmingly decided to endorse Jerry? Or do you prefer to avoid facts--since they don't fit in with your shrill and hysterical "anti Jerry" tirade?

Get a clue! Abortion will always be protected in CA by a law that Ronald Reagan himself signed in the 1960's. If the Supremes overturn Roe v. Wade (which I doubt) then all it will mean is that a state has the right to regulate abortion, which in CA's case means it's still legal.

One of the AG's most important roles is to defend death penalty verdicts in the CA & US Supreme Courts.

Can the guy who appointed and defended Rose Bird really be trusted to defend victim's rights?


This is not about melting ice caps, it's about the safety of our families and communities.

Um. Only a Republican operative would say something that straightforwardly silly.
