On Tuesday Night during public presentation, Santa Clara business leader Kirk Vartan asked Indicted Councilmember Anthony Becker to resign.
Vartan is part of a long list of people who have done so since District Attorney Jeff Rosen and Deputy District Attorney Jason Malinsky brought charges against Becker for leaking last year’s Grand Jury report (a misdemeanor) and lying about it under oath (felony perjury).
During his 3-minute presentation, Vartan played clips of Becker’s previous statements that show the indicted Councilmember’s lying and hypocrisy.
Vartan uses just a few video clips of Becker. But they’re all really damaging.
Santa Clara News Online has also documented Becker’s history of abusive behavior.
Local legal experts are split about how relevant Becker’s problematic behavior will be during a possible trial or potential sentencing.
