Among other accomplishments, she is a former San Francisco District Attorney who — according to the San Francisco Examiner — knew of evidence tampering before the public or police chief knew of it.
The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office found itself under fire in early 2010 when it came to light that Deborah Madden, a drug lab technician for the city police, confessed to removing cocaine from evidence samples. Her admission resulted in the police lab’s testing unit closing and pending drug cases being dismissed. The police department also had to investigate cases already prosecuted due to Madden’s admission of evidence tampering.
