Mom Mimi running for Westchester D.A.

The Journal News reports:

MSNBC legal analyst Mimi Rocah will announce she’s running for Westchester County district attorney today, looking to unseat incumbent Anthony Scarpino in a 2020 Democratic Party primary. Rocah, a 49-year-old Scarsdale resident, said she decided to get involved because of the “hateful policies” and “attacks on the rule of law” by President Donald Trump and U.S. Attorney General William Barr … Rocah is also a Distinguished Criminal Justice Fellow at Pace Law School and volunteers with the gun-control activist group Moms Demand Action and My Sister’s Place, which assists victims of domestic violence and human trafficking …”

She gave a talk at Pace back in 2017 on gun control, “Gun Regulation in an Era of Mass Shootings” with a follow-up, “Let’s Keep the Conversation About Gun Control Going.”

Her Twitter feed features a picture of her in a Moms t-shirt and she is not shy about expressing her opinions on the issue:

With low turnout in the primary she has a realistic shot at unseating the incumbent next year.
