Statement: I think you, the collective media, have made it all about elected officials, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis told us in an interview about the focus of her Public Integrity Unit.

Analysis: In 2007, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis set up a Public Integrity Unit with much fanfare. Four years later, it had seemingly gone quiet. I decided to take a look back at the unit’s work and found that it had prosecuted just three elected officials, only one of which resulted in punitive action — a $1,000 fine.
