Sharmin Bock, Bill Fazio, David Onek, and Vu Trinh Set to Star at UC Hastings Debate Wednesday – But Where’s Gascon?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

See, District Attorney George Gascon doesn’t want to pull one of these, so that’s why he’s going to blow off the last DA’s debate.

(Or maybe he’ll show, I don’t know.)

Anyway, head over there tomorrow or watch on the livestream, why not?
