FPPC, “You don’t want to be investigating your own agency.” and they Didn’t.

By Michael G. Stogner

FPPC Commissioner Catherine Baker

Thank You, to the Los Angeles Times for following up on the complaint of Commissioner Catherine Baker. I think it’s fair to say that inquiry caused the Attorney Generals Office to get involved. Time for an AUDIT of the FPPC complaints. The FPPC had the complaint for 7 months and Never Investigated it.

The Complaint was filed in April 29, 2021 with FPPC Enforcement Division.
LATIMES November 12, 2021 Requested information about the Investigation.
November 12, 2021 FPDC Enforcement Division recused itself.

SACRAMENTO — A campaign finance investigation against a top official at California’s political watchdog agency sat in limbo and hidden from public view for months, raising questions about whether the government organization holds its own members to the same standard as candidates and campaigns across the state.
The complaint against Catharine Baker, a member of the California Fair Political Practices Commission and former Republican legislator, was filed in April with the agency’s enforcement division. On Nov. 12 — the same day The Times requested information regarding the case — the FPPC enforcement division recused itself from the investigation and asked state Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta to assume control.
“I’m very surprised by this,” said Bob Stern, former FPPC general counsel. “The question then becomes, what other cases are they not disclosing? Is this one bad example or typical of how they are operating?”
Commission Chairman Richard Miadich said he instructed staff members months ago to move the case to the attorney general and provided a copy of an email dated April 29 confirming that directive. But he said he didn’t know why the transfer of the case didn’t happen until just a few days ago.
“We have never had a situation where a sitting commissioner has had a complaint filed against them,” Miadich said Monday. “We needed some time to do our homework.”
A statement from Bonta’s office confirmed receipt of the documents but offered no other details.
Baker was appointed to the commission in December, one of five members who oversee the implementation and enforcement of California campaign finance laws. She served in the state Assembly from 2014 to 2018 representing portions of the eastern Bay Area and disputes the allegations contained in the anonymous complaint, submitted through the FPPC’s online system in April.
“The anonymous complaint is incorrect, both on the facts and on the law,” Baker said in a phone interview.
At issue is whether she failed to properly file paperwork related to a possible 2030 campaign for the Assembly and whether additional disclosure of donors was required when transferring $125,000 in leftover funds from her 2018 campaign committee to an account for a possible future campaign.
“Our filings were complete and accurate and filed on time with the advice of legal counsel to ensure full compliance,” she said.
Complaints made against political candidates and campaigns are reviewed by the state commission’s enforcement staff. If an investigation is launched, FPPC officials inform the parties in question and disclose the inquiry in an online system the public can access.
But after the staff examination into Baker’s activity began, the information was not displayed in the online database. Miadich told The Times that the agency’s “transparency portal” is designed to provide information on cases under the commission’s jurisdiction and that, in this case, the information being gathered by FPPC staff members didn’t fall under that category.
“At no point were we actively investigating this complaint,” he said.
On Nov. 12, The Times asked the commission’s press office whether an investigation into Baker was underway and, if so, the status of the inquiry. That same day, Chief Enforcement Officer Angela Brereton sent a letter to Bonta asking his department to take over the case.
“Because Commissioner Baker is currently in office, the Commission is recusing itself from this matter,” Brereton wrote, also noting that FPPC staff members “have not made any determination” on whether Baker had violated state campaign finance regulations.
Miadich said Monday that Brereton could have made clear that plans to transfer the case had been in the works for some time.
“I think it would have been helpful for her to contextualize that letter,” he said.
Stern, a co-author of California’s landmark Political Reform Act, said that the commission’s actions could be perceived to some as giving Baker special consideration and that FPPC investigators should have quickly handed the case over to Bonta.
“It’s all appearances,” he said. “You don’t want to be investigating your own agency, particularly commissioners.”

San Mateo County Residents, Have they been Arrested yet?

By Michael G. Stogner

Is a SMC Judge, Clerk, & Court Reporter committing Perjury Newsworthy?

Where do you get your Information? Who do you trust to provide honest and accurate Information about your government?

Contact your trusted News Sources and ask the Editors why they chose to ignore this information?

Former SMCSO Deputy Juan P. Lopez

Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez is made of the Right Stuff. I have been reporting on his Political Prosecution for the last 7 years. When a person is arrested and Criminally Charged with crimes, ask yourself, How long do you expect the Judicial Process to last before a Conviction or the entire case is Dismissed, like the Zain Jaffer case was in 8 months? Why has this case taken so long? What if the case was brought to teach everybody a lessen, and there was Never any intention to take it to a Jury trial, Simply Destroy a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy who is not a member of the “Those who Matter” Team. Think of the Financial and Emotional costs for the last 7 years.

They made a mistake/miscalculation when they went after San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. He didn’t FOLD.

Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez, has always wanted a Jury Trial. He has never waivered, the Government has done everything possible to keep their people off of the Witness Stand for the last 7 years. The answer is simple, It’s not Illegal for the Involved parties to lie to reporters, or produce false press releases to their favorite misinformation businesses. However it is Illegal to make false statements under Oath.

Now that only matters if you have a District Attorney who will Prosecute a Judge, Clerk, Reporter, for Perjury.

Now the Question needs to be asked by the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents, Have they been Arrested yet, Have they been Criminally Charged yet? Has anything happened to them yet? If not Why Not?

The answer is simple: They are on the “Those Who Matter” Team.

Who prosecutes the Judge, Clerk, and Court Reporter SMCN.com Article

Tony Serra, “Hon. Judge Joseph Scott has PERJURED himself.” SMCN.com Article

In case you are not aware of the “Those Who Matter” team, the first time I’m aware of any written evidence of it’s existence was April 25, 2007, in these e-mails I received from a PRA request.

You will notice the top two San Mateo County District Attorneys Never asked Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Why did you both go INSIDE that single family residence at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada that night?

Operation Dollhouse 14 years later. Most likely a Drug Deal/Drop. Still no Investigation, Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

The residents of San Mateo County will remember the News that San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were Caught and Detained INSIDE a single family home with bars on all of the windows and doors in an FBI Sting, called Operation Dollhouse. Who said they were INSIDE, LVMPD Spokesman Bill Cassell, and LVMPD Vice Lt. Karen Hughes both said they were INSIDE.

Three days later on April 25, 2007 San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks held a Misinformation Event where he admitted the obvious that he was INSIDE but then Lied about UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was outside when the authorities arrived. Why would he lie about that?

Sheriff Munks also said: Neither he nor Bolanos intended to PAY FOR SEX.

Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos have NEVER been Investigated or answered ANY questions about Why were they both INSIDE that Disgusting, Vulgar home on April 21, 2007.

Not one of the 5 San Mateo County Supervisors, thought it would be a good idea to find out why they both left the County at the same time for several days, and Why were they both Caught & Detained INSIDE? If they didn’t intend to PAY for SEX, were they there for another reason?

How long would it take for the San Mateo County Gang Task Force to get their hands on 3,5000 Ecstasy Tablets.

What would each Tablet be worth at retail or at a location where the customers would pay top dollar say $20 each = $70,000

Is it possible that Sheriff Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos both experts in Drug Trafficking and Human Trafficking were INSIDE 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada, at 9:30 PM to sell 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000 Cash?

It’s NEVER too late to Investigate, I’ve asked the Board of Supervisors to Investigate they Refused.

How many of the 7 Print Media aka Newspapers demanded an Investigation of Munk’s and Bolanos being INSIDE?

Every Candidate for Supervisor, Sheriff, and even the District Attorney’s Office should be in favor of a Full Investigation.

Nobody has ever asked, When did the 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets arrive at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada?

What caused the FBI to close a 2 year Sting Operation on a Saturday Night, when San Mateo County’s top two Law Enforcement Sheriffs were Caught?

Who is responsible for this mess? The Supervisors of San Mateo County of course. Also every City Manager and City Council who contracted with the Sheriff’s Office for Patrol Services.

It’s such a Simple Question, Why were you INSIDE? It should only be asked after they both are sworn in.

Carlos G. Bolanos, Approved for Oath Keepers Private Chat Room.

By Michael G. Stogner

When can you tell if San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman are LYING? Answer: When they are speaking or communicating.

You would think both of these fine gentleman would be curios to find out not only who had access to Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’ government EMAIL address, but than committed the crime of identity theft by signing up the unsuspecting Sheriff and Vetting him to have full access to a Private Chat Room of The Oath Keepers.

David Silberman: “I have no idea who did it or who changed the password.  I would speculate that it was someone who wanted to attempt to harm the Sheriff.” Why would anybody want to harm the Sheriff? Nobody could harm the Sheriff more than he does all by himself. If somebody accessed my good friend the Sheriff of San Mateo County’s government EMAIL account and signed him up to a anti government Group, and then got him Vetted to the Chat Room, I would want an Immediate Investigation and Criminal Charges Filed as soon as that person or persons were identified.

I say David Silberman’s good friend because Sheriff Bolanos is the employer of one of Mr. Silbermans’ two daughters. Supervisor Don Horsley is the employer of the other daughter.

Neither Bolanos or Silberman have any interest in finding out Who, if not Carlos G. Bolanos got him vetted with the Oath Keepers to access the Private Chat Room. That is because they already know.

San Mateo County Government’s Big Lie.

By Michael G. Stogner

The County Government’s Big Lie started in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 21, 2007 at 9:30 PM when then Sheriff Greg Munks and Under-Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were both Caught and Detained INSIDE a private residence with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Minor, $25,000 cash and 3,500 ecstasy tablets. That LIE is still going strong 14 years later, if they would lie about this what else would they lie about? Errol Chang Homicide by Law Enforcement, Yanira Serrano Garcia Homicide by Sheriff Employee, Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by 6 Sheriff Employees, Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by 2 Sheriff Employees, the Kaylan Charles Freeman Criminal Case, and don’t forget the Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal case going for 7 years now. There are many more.

The real question is who were all of the Elected Officials and Appointed Department heads like County Manager, County Counsel and Staff in Government and the Media who were communicated with between April 21, 2007 9:30 PM and April 25, 2007 10:47 AM to create the False Official Story?

The Truth was out from the very beginning in this article published in the Palo Alto Online April 24, 2007 @ 2:48 PM. That’s 61 hours after Both Caught INSIDE. Isn’t that interesting an online news publication from a different county published the truth. How many of the 720,000 San Mateo County Residents read that article?

Bill Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences. That is very different than what Sheriff Greg Munks told the public at his press conference.

What would have happened if Sheriff Greg Munks and Under-Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos simply told the Truth? Why the Lie?

Sheriff detained in Las Vegas brothel raid

Uploaded: Tue, Apr 24, 2007, 2:48 pm
Time to read: about 2 minutes

San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks Tuesday afternoon apologized for his “lack of judgment” following his and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos’ brief detainment at a Las Vegas brothel Saturday night during a prostitution sting by local and federal authorities.

Munks, who was sworn in as sheriff of San Mateo County on Jan. 8, read a brief statement but declined to take questions.

“I believed I was going to a legitimate business,” Munks said. “It was not,” he said.

Munks said he and Bolanos had been in Las Vegas over the weekend to participate in a law enforcement run, the Baker to Vegas Relay.

During a series of raids Saturday night and early Sunday dubbed “Operation Dollhouse,” Munks and Bolanos were detained but were not among the six people — five men and one woman — arrested by police at a brothel about two miles west of Las Vegas strip, Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell said this afternoon.

The arrests at the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found took place at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Cassell said. Approximately 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 in cash was seized at the brothel, Cassell added.

Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences at the brothel. “All of the customers were simply identified and released,” Cassell said.

“I want to apologize to my family, the sheriff’s office and its fine men and women, and to the people of San Mateo County for my lack of judgment and the undue attention and embarrassment this incident has caused,” Munks stated.

Munks said that he and Bolanos fully cooperated with the investigation, though he noted that Bolanos “was outside when the authorities arrived.”

“I would not, nor did I, break any laws,” Munks said. “Neither did the Undersheriff.”

Cassell stressed that Munks and Bolanos “received no special treatment because of their status in law enforcement.”

No charges have been filed against Munks or Bolanos.

Cassell declined to specify the exact location of the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found, but said it is located two miles west of the strip in a mixed residential and light-industrial area in the south-central part of the city, according to Cassell.

The raid was part of a series of raids at nine Las Vegas brothels Saturday night and early Sunday morning, according to Cassell.

The operation capped a two-year investigation conducted by Las Vegas police, the FBI, the IRS criminal investigation division and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau, Cassell said.

Over the weekend, a total of seven people were arrested on prostitution and drug-related charges and 25 prostitutes were taken into custody, Cassell said. An ongoing investigation will attempt to determine whether any of those arrested were involved in illegal human trafficking, he added.

According to Cassell, additional suspects are still being sought by authorities on federal prostitution charges.

Here is the example of just 4 of San Mateo County Government Officials communicating with each other within 61 hours of The Sheriff and Under-Sheriff being Caught and Detained INSIDE.

That is San Mateo County’s TOP 4 in Law Enforcement. All four have sworn an Oath to protect the Public.

How many times since April 21, 2007 has now elected Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied about being outside the residence as if that mattered to the Public, How many times?

Welcome to San Mateo County

Chinedu V. Okobi, SMC’s George Floyd.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

Sunday, October 3rd at 2:00 pm, Chinedu Okobi Remembrance Rally led by the San Mateo NAACP, Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, Island United Church, Justice For Chinedu, the families of victims who died at the hands of law enforcement, community leaders and members. 

Tomorrow 2PM-3:30PM

Location: 400 County Center Building, Redwood City, California.

San Mateo County Residents don’t know very much about Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide, and that is exactly what the Government wants. When I say government I’m also including the Media/Newspapers.

Chinedu Valentine Okobi, is San Mateo County’s George Floyd, the difference is the world saw George Floyd Murdered because of a very brave 17 year old girl who videoed it and placed it on the internet before Law Enforcement, Elected Officials could get there hands on it. That is what happened in San Mateo County.

First lets start at the Top with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He is a LIAR, that is NO SECRET.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Omits Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales name. He was Very Involved.

Chinedu V. Okobi was not running in and out of traffic, before Deputy Wang targeted him. Chinedu did NOT immediately assault Deputy Wang. Chinedu died on El Camino Real in San Bruno/Millbrae. The Six Sheriff Employees did not provide ANY life saving Measures for 9 minutes after they killed him.

Chinedu Valentine Okobi, was a 36 year old Father, Son, Brother, Moorehouse College Graduate, who was simply walking on the sidewalk on a sunny afternoon in Millbrae, when SMC Sheriff Deputy Wang got attracted to him.

I will be joining this group of very good humans tomorrow. I remember when I first met them at a Board of Supervisor Meeting, I thought to myself, These are my People.

Half Moon Bay should stay with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner

The Issue is with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and David Silberman not the Deputies.

Some members of the council have been doing their best to get the Sheriff’s Office to stop killing residents and to stop lying about it after they do. Yanira Serrano Garcia and Sandra Lee Harmon are two examples. The AXON LOG RECORDS are another example, they belong to the public, Sheriff Bolanos and SMCC attorney David Silberman are refusing to release them. I’ve recommended the City of Half Moon Bay sue both. So far the council has chosen not too.

The Councilmembers know that there is an election in 10 months and Mark Melville a candidate has been following the challenge the city has been facing with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

I asked Mark Melville for his opinion, here it is.


First and foremost, Mr. Jiminez is correct in that the public and Council need to meet and discuss what is in the best interest of all city residents, inclusive of public safety services.  I read the proposed ordinance and find it appropriate. There is nothing in the ordinance that prevents the Sheriff’s Office from doing their job. The Council is looking for the betterment of how people are treated once they are in contact with law enforcement, nothing wrong with that. I’m not sure where the Sheriff is coming from when he says the ordinance wouldn’t improve public safety..?  I think the ordinance is actually in favor of policing, in the way the City wants to see it done.  In addition, I believe specific deputies should be assigned to the City for a long period of time. This would allow them to become part of the community and they would clearly understand the community’s expectations. In doing this, it would eliminate the Sheriff’s concern of having deputies working in different jurisdictions operating under different operating procedures.
   
The Sheriff’s statement, “It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract, it’s basically unenforceable,”  which in my opinion is very condescending.  The Sheriff is saying we are going to provide the service to the City the way we see fit, and there is nothing you can do about it, oh until the contract ends in 2022.  In my opinion, the Sheriff should be at the forefront of drafting said ordinance with the city Council, because it’s for the betterment of the community..!!  I’m wishing the City success in achieving the services they desire for their community. 

San Mateo County Voters can help Half Moon Bay residents in this next election.

Daly City Manager Shawanna Maltbie, and others are being asked to resign today. Not the first time.

By Michael G. Stogner

City Manager Shawanna Maltbie

Background April 7, 2021 Roger Allen was shot and killed by Daly City Police Department, he was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck. Nobody requested the Police to show up. 4 Officers did and surrounded the vehicle. The Official report from Chief of Police Patrick Hensley and approved by Shawanna Maltbie was “They were there to Help.” That was the first time I had heard of Daly City Police Officers “We are here to Help” on what normally would be a AAA call to fix a flat tire.

Shawanna Maltbie the City Manager is responsible for the behavior of the Police Department, (What I mean by that is the City Manager can Fire the Police Chief and she could have named the 4 Officers the very first day of the Homicide, She simply chose not to.) and serves at the pleasure of the City Council. This was just demonstrated to all SMC Residents by the Foster City Gang of 3 (G3) when they FIRED Dr. Peter Prinejad, August 25, 2021, their recently hired City Manager for NO CAUSE.

Daly City has NO Councilmember at this time who thinks Shawanna Maltbie should be fired. That is why Public is now speaking up. The Public is responsible for how their Government acts.

Per the The Public’s demands from The Daly City Council Meeting from this past Monday, September 13, 2021, The Daly City Public will be visiting Daly City Hall, Today, September 20th, around 11:30 AM to confirm resignation of all Daly City Council Members, City Manager, Assistant City Manager, City Clerk and Police Chief.
These demands were made at the 2:41:49 mark.

Daly City Council Meeting September 13, 2021

Video of Daly Cily Police Officers “We are here to Help.”

The next step and really the only one that will make an impact on Daly City Government is for the Public to organize and RECALL at least 3 of the 5 Councilmembers. Can it be done? Just look to the residents of Foster City who successfully RECALLED the Vice Mayor Herb Perez, not that long ago.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, The public has a right to know.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County News.com has asked San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos what his policy is for his 800 employees being vaccinated. The Sheriff and his Public Information Officer have not responded yet.

The Public has a right to know if the Sheriff Deputy that has pulled him/her over for a traffic stop is fully vaccinated. It’s no secret that several people in Law Enforcement think they are above the rules, “Those Who Matter” club. Some have even filed lawsuits to avoid being vaccinated.

Violation of Oath? First responders, whose oath is to serve and protect, and to race into harm’s way in the interest of public safety.

I’ve asked a simple question, Sheriff Bolanos what is your policy on your employees being vaccinated in order to serve the public? In order to be in a Court Room, to be in MaGuire or Maple Jail, or San Mateo County Medical Hospital, or the 400 County Center Building, or Sheriff Activities League?

What is San Mateo County Sheriff Office Policy?

Good morning Sheriff Bolanos,
What is your policy on your employees being fully vaccinated?
What is your total number of Employees, and how many have been fully vaccinated as of today?
If any claim religious exemptions will those documents be verified for perjury?

Thank you in advance of your response.

The same question could be asked for All San Mateo County Employees.

Note: Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is a candidate for Re-Election in just 9 months.

Foster City, Questions remain about the August 25, 2021, Closed Session Meeting.

By Michael G. Stogner

I have asked the City of Foster City who was responsible for placing it on the Agenda for both August 25, and August 31, 2021 Closed Session Meetings? There has been no response to those questions.

Good morning Jennifer, I do have another question or possibly two, can you tell me which City Council member requested the Closed Session Meeting on August 25, 2021 and August 31, 2021?
Thank You

I asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy (a Foster City resident on the Citizen Ad Hoc Committee) if any of the councilmembers contacted him prior to them firing Dr. Peter Pirnejad?

Michael Callagy <mcallagy@smcgov.org>To:Michael StognerMon, Aug 30 at 3:47 PM

Hi Mike,I heard about his firing from another city manager a few days after he was fired. We were at lunch.  I was not aware there was a closed session on this matter.  In fact you are the first I heard that from.  Though I asked that Peter sit on a panel for a discussion on equity awhile back, I never really had an opportunity to get to know him. Best regards,

Hello Mike,
Did anybody from Foster City contact you in advance of the August 25, 2021 Closed Session Meeting that resulted in Dr. Peter Prinejad being terminated.
Do you have any comment on this Termination especially since the Assistant City Manager just left that position a couple of weeks prior?
Thank You

I asked San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe if any of the Foster City Councilmembers contacted his office to make a criminal complaint against Dr. Peter Pirnejad the New City Manager of Foster City?

Stephen Wagstaffe <swagstaffe@smcgov.org>To:Michael Stogner Sat, Sep 4 at 11:52 AM

Good morning Michael,

No.  Everything I have heard about the situation is what I have read in your reports.

Thanks

Steve

Good morning Steve,

Did any of Foster City council members file a criminal complaint against Dr. Peter Pirnejad?

Did anybody for that matter?

Thank You

Michael

Just because you have the authority to do something (Fire/Terminate) doesn’t mean that you should, or that it is the right or decent action to take. Super Majority Vote should be considered by the residents. This was clearly an issue between only 3 of the 5 council members. Mayor Sanjay Gehani, F.C. Councilman Jon Froomin voted against the firing of Dr. Peter Pirnejad.
