"I'm not sure Price is as extreme (nor as inexperienced a leader) as Boudin, but her administration will be a jolt to the norm for sure."

Some of us are quite sure. Another progressive "leader" that is against the constitutional rights of the citizens, can't tell the difference between legal and illegal, opposes self-defense, and blames society for street violence.

This hasn't happened - no matter how many times the political left keeps promising it will.
