Far-left Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón has suspended a prosecutor for “unfairly naming” and “falsifying” a transgender person accused of murder.
Prosecutor Shea Sanna is accused of referring to infamous convicted child abuser Hannah Tubbs by Tubbs’ birth name, James Tubbs, and male pronouns that refer to Tubbs’ biological sex, Fox News reported. In the progressive world, these sins are known as “dead names” and “gender evils.”
The exact nature of Sanna’s punishment, including how many days he has been suspended, is unclear.
According to Fox News, Sanna once served as the lead prosecutor in the Tubbs case. But he backtracked when he “argued in the past that jailhouse phone calls show Tubbs was trying to use gender identity to game the justice system, an argument that sources said made others at Gascon’s office and led to the suspension,” according to Fox News. .
In response, Sanna said that “naming” and “upsetting” Tubbs is simply a pretext for retaliation. This is because Sanna has been an open critic of Gascón.
“I was suspended for speaking against the Gascón Administration,” Sanna said. “Gendering Tubbs wrong while informing them that they were playing is just their excuse for the suspension.”
What is the background?
Tubbs made national news last year after he was sentenced to a juvenile facility for sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in 2014. Tubbs was 26 at the time of his sentencing.
Despite not being a minor, Tubbs was sentenced to a juvenile facility because Gascón, at the time, had a policy that prevented “children” from being tried criminally as adults. Gascón had also refused to transfer the case to the adult court system.
The case broke after explosive prison tapes revealed that Tubbs had enjoyed the light sentence. The clemency later fell through when prosecutors in neighboring Kern County filed murder charges against Tubbs in 2019.
Gascón initially claimed he was unaware of the prison tapes. But Sanna discussed it publicly.
“George Gascón was in possession of all the evidence and knew or should have known about all the statements made by Tubbs when he said he still believes Tubbs should be tried as a juvenile,” Sanna told the New York Post on last february “Gascón knew about the more than 250 tapes in the prison and took me off the case the night before the hearing where I was going to play the tapes.”
Gascón subsequently opened an internal investigation into Sanna.
