Not a great strategy for opposing attorneys to accuse a DA of corruption. Its generally a great idea to have some kind of professional courtesy, at least publicly.

There are lots of land mines in this case, and lots of further charges could still be made. If they were smart they would work for plea deals. She has a crap ton of evidence already, and more to sort through. Pissing her off is not a good idea. Corruption is a serious charge. Its not like saying shes not good at her job. They are accusing her of a crime.
You do realize Gamaldi, the HPOU Prez, is also national VP of the FOP?

He has to zealously represent his membership.

I think it will come back to bite them. If he was announcing an FBI investigation into her wrong doing? Maybe then. Otherwise, not wise.

I can remember many times when I would get into a conversation with my union president and she would admit that she really wished a particular officer or agent would just resign. She was often forced to defend people who were so dirty or incompetent that neither the union nor management thought they should be employed with the bureau. But she was stuck. Sometimes my heart really went out to her.

Interestingly, there’s a lesson in loyalty here with Gamaldi.

Remember, he was on Fox earlier this month representing the FOP and saying it’s unfair that all LEOs were being judged by the action of one. The MN Police Officer’s Federation (union) is not an FOP affiliate.

Being an insufferable asshat twerp is not part of that.
Once apon a time I had a CSM that was an insufferable bastard I didn't get along with one bit. One day, during family day, I had my 4 year old daughter in tow and was speaking with the battalion LTC and the CSM walked up and asked who the adorable little girl was. I introduced them and my daughter didn't miss a beat in asking "Daddy, is he the asshat?" I just had to shake my head. Needless to say, a crappy relationship totally went to hell with the CSM.
