EdgerlyGate: Who’s to Blame?

So let’s say the allegations against Oakland City Administrator Deborah Edgerly are true. Yes, she did try to bully police officers, who were conducting perhaps the most important gang investigation in years, into freeing her nephew, who had a gun and has been identified as an alleged member of the Acorn street gang. Yes, she did bully the cops into finding a way to hire her unqualified daughter. Yes, she did threaten to use her authority against police who arrested a friend for raising hell outside an Oakland nightclub. If all this is true, who’s to blame for letting her stick around?
