San Fran DA should have kept her mouth shut…

A top aide for San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin locked her Twitter account earlier this week after appearing to mock a constituent who had expressed concerns about crime in the city.

Kate Chatfield, Boudin’s senior director for legislation and policy, reportedly set her account to private mode “hours after comparing political opponents to ‘The Birth of a Nation,’ a highly controversial 1915 film that depicts Ku Klux Klan members as heroes,” according to SFGate.

Chatfield had responded to a tweet posted last weekend from Michelle Tandler, who describes herself as a San Francisco native and moderate Democrat. SFGate reported that Tandler “has been vocal on Twitter in her criticisms of Boudin,” known as one of the most progressive prosecutors in the country and currently the target of a recall campaign.
