I couldn't post in the SF Bay area forums so I'll ask here.

Mark Peterson, Deputy DA CoCo County

Dan O'Malley, An attorney & a former Superior Court judge.

Any insight as to who is the lessor of 2 evils?:D

Id like to know as well. I have 2-3 family members I can sway to a pro-gun DA.

Some questions for them should be,

1. Ever hear of a bullet button? Do you have one? If not, do you want one?

No good choice here, I think - from Dan O'Malley's web site (http://danomalley.org/) Judge O’Malley (ret.) has overwhelming support from decision makers to grass roots supporters. He has been endorsed by Congressmen Miller and Garamendi, Assemblymembers Skinner and Torlakson as well as Senators Hancock, Corbett and Desaulnier. The usual gang of gun grabbers endorse him.

And Peterson claims support (http://california.evoter.com/markpeterson) from the same crowd! I'm proud to have the support of Contra Costa County Firefighters, local police, crime victims, Senator Mark Desaulnier, Assemblyman Tom Torlakson, Supervisor Susan Bonilla, and others.

CC Times has an article (http://www.contracostatimes.com/ci_16352345?source=most_viewed) from last week -- I think I'll vote 'present' on these guys.
