December 15, 2016  Fox News analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle is reportedly a strong candidate to be President-elect Trump’s press secretary. When I was District Attorney Hallinan’s press secretary, Kimberly and Jim Hammer were prosecuting the infamous “San Francisco Dog Mauling” case. We worked together closely and got along fine. (Both Kimberly and Hammer were competing for media attention and wanted me to steer the big-name interview requests their way.)

Here we are with Hallinan, striding to meet about 40 reporters and their camera crews to announce SFDA’s charging decision: murder. For a while, I really did have the DA’s back.  —Fred Gardnerbehind-hallinan
