This fits well with Barnes' politics.
Mandela Barnes traveled to the Bay Area on Tuesday to hobnob with San Francisco district attorney Chesa Boudin and California state senator Scott Wiener, a photo shared by California Democratic Party vice chair David Campos shows. Boudin—the son of two Weather Underground terrorists who has ended cash bail and repeatedly declined to prosecute serial offenders—faces a recall effort sparked by a murder surge in his city. Wiener, meanwhile, has called for the abolition of ICE, because it is a "force of oppression" that makes "communities less safe."
Two Democrats (among many) who don't believe in putting criminals in prison. Mandela should be on their side there, especially since he seems to have problems accounting for his campaign funds.
Did Barnes have the State Patrol drive him out there?
