Alert: The DA & Sheriff Agree on Something

​Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and District Attorney Tony Rackauckas may both be Republicans in Orange County but they don't necessarily agree on much. 

Oh, sure, there's plenty to bond over. 

A spooked Hutchens once killed an unarmed young minority person while working as an LA sheriff's deputy and Rackauckas sent an innocent minority man, DeWayne McKinney, to prison for a couple of decades for a robbery he didn't commit.

Despite that history, our sheriff and DA are, well, frosty, to each other.

But, alas, they've found something to agree on: the election of Shawn Nelson as the county's newest supervisor, according to Kimberly Edds at the OC Register.

Nelson, a private lawyer, won a special June election to fill the seat vacated by Fullerton's Chris Norby, who graduated to the state assembly after the Weekly's sex-loaded, scandalous revelations about Yorba Linda assemblyman Mike Duvall. The Christian conservative resigned after we reported him boasting about wildly screwing a power company lobbyist who wasn't his wife. 

Of course, Hutchens and Rackauckas aren't talking about Duvall or his sex scandal.

But, when it comes to a choice between Anaheim city councilman Harry Sidhu and Nelson, who are in a run-off November election, they are both cheering for Nelson. 

Don't pout Harry. You still have the backing of the county government employee's union.
