Elected as reformer, Jefferson County’s incoming district attorney is pushing out office’s top prosecutors

Alexis King

Alexis King convinced voters in Jefferson and Gilpin counties that she should be their next district attorney on the promise that she’d reform the prosecutor’s office — and she hasn’t waited to be sworn in to make sweeping changes.

King will cut 10 people from the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office when she takes charge in January, she acknowledged in a brief interview Thursday. Those losing their jobs include six senior prosecutors and three deputy district attorneys, those involved told The Denver Post, wiping away decades of experience and senior leadership in the office.

“At the end of the day, it’s about ensuring that we are bringing and performing ethical prosecutions, protecting public safety, that are also aligned with my values and making sure we have a workplace that is open to all identities,” King said Thursday, adding the dismissals are “100%” part of her effort to reform

  • Chris Krebs, the former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, gave a new interview in which he said that almost all of the ballots cast in the 2020 election had a paper trail and that there was no evidence the machines were hacked or manipulated.
  • In a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday on CBS, Krebs reiterated previous statements he made about the election being the “most secure in American history.”
  • “The proof is in the ballots,” he said. “The recounts are consistent with the initial count. If there was an algorithm that was flipping votes or changing votes, it didn’t work.”

Top court to review order to open police disciplinary files

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Supreme Court will decide if state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal can order the release of police disciplinary files dating back 20 years.

The decision came in an order issued Wednesday by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. It comes a few weeks after a state appellate court unanimously ruled that Grewal has the authority to release the files, rejecting arguments made by police and troopers unions seeking to block the releases.

A date for oral arguments before the top court has not been scheduled.

The announcement of Grewal’s plans came in the days after the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police sparked protests and calls for more police accountability.

Grewal’s directives issued in June required law enforcement agencies across the state to begin publicly identifying officers who were fired, demoted or suspended for more than five days because of a disciplinary violation, and required
