Adam Schiff drops endorsement of Jackie Lacey in L.A. County district attorney's race

Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Burbank) has withdrawn his endorsement of Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey ahead of a contentious November election, when she will seek a third term in office.

In a tweet Saturday morning, Schiff alluded to recent protests and calls for criminal-justice reform after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody.

“This is a rare time in our nation’s history,” Schiff wrote. “We have a responsibility to make profound changes to end systemic racism & reform criminal justice.”

Lacey’s campaign staff confirmed Saturday that Schiff had let them know he was withdrawing his support. Lacey later issued a statement saying she stands by her record.

This seems unusual and noteworthy.

1. We don't need or want DAs that fail to prosecute bad cops.

Good for Adam Schiff on this retraction!
