Steve Ipsen, Founding President ADDA

Originally Released on May 6, 2011

County Prosecutor Steve Ipsen tells Full Disclosure Network why it was necessary to form a Union of Deputy District Attorneys to fight against corrupt practices adverse to public safety practiced by District Attorney Cooley personally.  He says that prosecutors should be free to blow the whistle on retaliation by management.

Ipsen was the founding and long-time President of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADDA). Ipsen faces a daunting task in Federal Court, (fighting against corruption and for First Amendment Rights to speak out against the retaliation of his boss Steve Cooley who ran unsuccessfully for Attorney General of California and who was unable to win over the voters in his own county of Los Angeles.

    Steve Cooley is the stupidest most inarticulate and unprofessional loser the County of Los Angeles has ever has as an elected DA. That’s All!

    Minimum wage, Medi-Cal, social security. Is the caliber public officials is what we get, and that’s what they deserve. Public sector unions should be illegal. They already get outrages salaries, have job security, have a job for life, and a retirement package they don’t deserve. On the questions, #1no, #2no #3 they deserve to do their job, like prosecute the corrupt judges.

    Mr. Ipsen doesn’t go far enough telling us about the corruption in the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. I have found that the D.A.’s Office is very tolerant of violations and criminal activity of public officials. Jackie Lacey, Steve Cooley, and their deputies are “dogs that don’t hunt”. Tragically, the public has to defend itself against white-collar crime.
