Melissa Renee Anne McKowan is no longer employed by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

According to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe she is no longer employed by his office and she now works as an attorney for the Private Defender Program. She left the DA’s office about 2 months ago.

Some readers might recall we wrote about her 2nd State Bar Court appearance in April 2017 for 2 counts of dishonesty. We also notified the 7 advertising businesses and attempted to post blogs on The Almanac and Half Moon Bay Review but we were blocked.

I had asked the question how could San Mateo County employ a dishonest prosecutor?How was she still employed by the DA’s Office?

Here is one article

Senator Jerry Hill to Mark De Paula”No I’m Not.” “I don’t want to talk about it.”

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

Today March 24, 2018 in San Mateo at the Veterans Parade, Good and Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula finally got to speak to Senator Jerry Hill without him being in a controlled environment. The responses above are to the Question I guess your not embarrassed to endorse Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018? Answer No I’m Not, I don’t want to talk about it.” I’m not surprised Jerry Hill was in Las Vegas that weekend of Operation Dollhouse and helped cover it up. He did absolutely nothing for the residents of San Mateo County to get to the truth about 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada, and how many Sheriff Deputies were really there that night.

Mark De Paula is asking every Elected Official in San Mateo County to withdraw their Endorsement of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. He never got a response from Jerry Hills office so this was a perfect chance to ask Jerry in person. Great Job Mr. De Paula

It gets better Mr. De Paula asked San Mateo City Council Member Eric Rodriguez to “please withdraw your endorsement of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018.”

Mr. Rodriquez response “How dare you bring that subject up, I got your e-mail (which he never responded to) I’m talking to people.

Note to Mr. Eric Rodriquez, So is Mark De Paula talking to people.

Maureen Freshet former Mayor of San Mateo said you are welcome, when Mr. De Paula said “thank you for not endorsing Carlos G. Bolanos for San Mateo County Sheriff -election June 5, 2018.” Very polite and pleasant.

E-mail sent to most SMC elected officials yesterday.

Subject: Carlos Bolanos and You
If you are receiving this email it is because you or a friend have endorsed a man who has either a) As a career lawman stood outside an obvious illegal brothel while his boss, the Sheriff of San Mateo County had sex with a probably minor sex-slave inside, or; b) Waited inside the brothel for his turn at the child sex-slaves while his boss was busy in one of the bedrooms.
There is no upside for you here. Add in the fact that it has now been alleged by an apparent SMCSO Deputy that Bolanos and Munks offered false IDs and were arrested and taken downtown before being bailed out by Gallagher, Kearnan and Sanchez and then add in the fact that the people who bailed them out appear to have been promoted ahead of grade and position up to the point of retirement as Assistant Sheriffs.
Carlos Bolanos is a toxic waste heap that is going to devour you if you remain supportive of him. Several smart local politicians have already pulled their endorsements of him. You must do the same or you risk deservedly and ignominiously going down with him in the fallout of your support for law enforcement officers who facilitated or solicited child-slaves in the service of their “needs.”
Dump Bolanos now. It is the only even remotely smart political choice you have. And announce it to the world when you do. Anything less and you risk being associated with Carols Bolanos forever.

San Mateo County Judge Donald Ayoob.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County residents should be very proud this Judge is on the bench.

He is the exception, In the Del Carlo Case 11/17/ 2017 which was connected to the former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case, He informs DDA Bryan Abanto, “I’m confident it should have been disclosed to the Grand Jury.”

For the average resident this means it was Prosecutorial Misconduct.

Result: MOTION TO DISMISS BY SUGERMAN FOR DEL CARLO, GRANTED

This is going to have a positive impact on Parents & Children.

It is also going to have an impact on California State Bar, Commission on Judicial Performance, Judges, Attorneys, and all members of the Cottage Industry that thrives in our courts.

California Commission on Judicial Performance Court Date.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Francisco, California August 17, 2017 Hon. Judge Susan Bolanos heard arguments on the Commission’s Confidential determination of its data. This agency has Never been audited in nearly 57 years,

The Law Firm Wagstaffe & Kerr LLP represented the public funded agency Commission on Judicial Performance. They are claiming the agency has the authority to determine  the information the State of California Auditor is requesting is Confidential and the State of California has no right to see it.

Think about it, this agency was formed to assure the public that nobody is above the law, including Judges

San Mateo County residents will recognize the Wagstaffe brothers involvement in protecting “Those Who Matter.” SMC Chief Deputy District attorney Steve Wagstaffe authored the “Those Who Matter.” e-mail the very first day the public became aware of our top two Law Enforcement Officers the Sheriff and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were caught and detained as CUSTOMERS of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada, April 21, 2007 in an FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse.

Here is the e-mail our DDA Steve Wagstaffe sent to Carlos G. Bolanos the very first day anybody even heard about them being detained inside a residential home, with sex slaves in it. He blames the media.

Greg and Carlos

Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time. To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by tomorrow.

My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.

Steve

The Commission on Judicial Performance, the first judicial disciplinary body of its kind, was established by legislative constitutional amendment approved by voters in 1960 as an independent state agency. The commission’s mandate has always been threefold: to protect the public, enforce rigorous standards of judicial conduct and maintain public confidence in the integrity and independence of the judicial system.
