DSA Endorsement Questioned

Sheriff's Sgt. Kelly Moore is trying to convince a judge to block $25,000 in contributions to Jim Anderson by the Deputy Sheriffs' Association.

Butch Arnoldi says he has an email that outlines the "simple majority" rule -- he should come forward with that today as it is hard to believe DSA wouldn't be more careful in outlining their endorsement process in such a contested race.

The silver lining in all of this may be the likelihood of a runoff election with Chief Bill Brown on the ticket. That would be great.
Progessives, take a look at as far as law enforcement officials go, Brown would be the most enlightened Sheriff this County could ever hope for; he was head fo the California Police Chief Association, a very forward-thinking group, which has endorsed Jerry Brown for A.G., etc. so, let's look on the bright side.....

If the DSA wants to be taken seriously by both the public and the sheriff (whoever that may be) it should release it's vote count. With respect to public perceptions what is the big deal if we know that Anderson got only 31% of the vote? Is it because we will know that 69% of the votes were not cast for him? Will that mean that the DSA "endorsement" is hollow fluff?

With repect to the sheriff himself, will a release of the vote temper his claims of a "vote of confidence?"
