BLOGGER CHARGES DROPPED BY SANTA CLARA D.A.

Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen has withdrawn a whistle blower complaint against deputy public defender Sajid Khan.

Fiery blog posts he demanded sweeping criminal-justice reform, which touched off a nationally watched dispute in which Rosen saw Khan’s words as a threat and others saw it as a textbook exercise of free speech.

Word of the whistleblower complaint drew scrutiny — most prominently in a Washington Post commentary piece Friday .

Due largely to the optics of a top law-enforcement officer turning to a remedy broadly understood as protecting line-level employees like Khan from retaliation from high-ranking officials like Rosen.

“He was using something designed for the little person to call out government misconduct, and weaponized it to throw his weight around.

I don’t think that’s appropriate, reasonable or justified,” Khan said.

“I’m grateful he saw the light and listened to the many voices that contacted him and let him know what he was planning to do was unwise, was unreasonable, and an abuse of his authority.”

In a statement Tuesday, Rosen said he withdrew the whistleblower action to maintain focus on criminal-justice reform efforts.
