Text of Kay's Letter to the Editor:
"I had a familiar nightmare last night. The crux was I was threatened, sought help, and was taunted, dismissed and mocked by my assailant. I hoped someone might help, might believe me, might actually do something about it. I awoke with my heart pounding and the overwhelming panic of powerlessness.
This is why — now that the recall is on the ballot — it must pass. Since the Brock Turner case, several laws have been strengthened and the #MeToo movement has brought healing. That healing come through survivors being believed, defended, heard and honored. Holding perpetrators to account is the logical next step.
Recalling Persky won’t fix our criminal justice system. It won’t heal survivors. But it will hold this judge accountable for the lenient sentences he’s chosen to deliver and for failing to honor survivors who went to him for justice.Vote yes. Recall Judge Aaron Persky."
