Editors note 12:10 p.m.: The vote tallies in this post have been updated.
Incumbent Chuck Alexander will continue as executive vice president of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association after winning nearly 90 percent of 431 delegate votes this morning.
According to Bob Walsh, our man on the ground at CCPOA's convention at the Rio All-Suite Hotel in Las Vegas, Alexander opponents Charlie Mohammed received 41 votes and Walter Tucker netted eight votes. Alexander received 374 votes. Eight delegates abstained. Four were absent.
Walsh, a CCPOA retiree who writes for the Paco Villa Corrections Blog, said that Mohammed told assembled delegates that "a vote for Chuck is a vote for cop killers" before he walked out of the convention.
That was a reference to CCPOA's support for Senate Bill 399, which would have allowed re-sentencing for minors who receive life without parole for murder. The union's position on the bill, which didn't clear the Legislature, rallied CCPOA dissidents.
