The last debate between candidates for San Francisco’s District Attorney before November’s election is occurring today at UC Hastings, but you don’t even have to get to the law school to watch it — it’ll be streamed online.

David Oneck, Sharmin Bock, Vu Trinh, and Bill Fazio are expected to attend the roundtable discussion moderated by UC Hastings Professor Rory Little.

“An invitation has been extended to District Attorney George Gascon,” event organizers say. “We’re waiting to hear from DA George Gascon,” Little says.

Little promises a “lively and controversial debate,” on topics like pot laws, immigration, California’s prison realignment plan, and the issues swirling around the SFPD drug lab.

Questions have been developed by Hastings students, and Little promises that attendees will be able to present questions towards the end of the discussion.

    So, I’m sure Prof. Little is super awesomely smart, but you would think that somebody would tell him that this election is not a “special election.” It is just the normal, every 4 years election for both the Mayor and the DA. Gascon was appointed as interim DA, and he’s running for a normal 4-year term.
