CA: Tough-on-Crime Bay Area DA Resigns After Committing Crimes of His Own

Since he was first elected in 2010, Contra Costa District Attorney—rather, former Contra Costa District Attorney—Mark Peterson often staked claim to “tough on crime” territory. That punitive predilection was nowhere to be seen last week when Peterson resigned from office and pled no contest to a felony perjury charge. While he came into office with a bang, Peterson finally left with a whimper. Peterson did not plan to leave his position of authority without a fight, but his resignation shows that the corruptive force of power can, sometimes, hamstring even the stubborn. In his wake, he leaves behind an office beset by questions about leadership and integrity. Trouble began, in a public way, late last year when the California Fair Political Practices Commission levied a $45,000 fine against Peterson for misusing over $66,000 worth of campaign contributions between 2011 and 2015. Instead of stepping aside and clearing the way for a new leader to take over, Peterson announced “plans to seek re-election” in 2018. According to the East Bay Times, “[p]rosecutors working for him [we]re understandably angry, exasperated and embarrassed.” Last month, the pressure on Peterson intensified; a grand jury approved of criminal charges, prompting more leaders in the community to call for his resignation. The breaking point was finally reached last week, when Peterson resigned in disgrace in responseView Full Post;
