Update: 9/26/22 All Charges have been dropped in Batmobile-builder Mark Racop case.
Candidate for Congress of the United States Rishi Kumar added to his website September 25, 2022.
Today – I continue to call for all charges to be dropped against Batmobile-builder Mark Racop, still charged(and forced back in court September 30) and made to travel thousands of miles from Indiana for this Friday’s hearing and eventual trial.
Same question for every Elected Official and Candidates for all offices.
There is only one Candidate for Congress who has demanded the resignation of San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for his most recent actions involving the Batmobile Raid in Indiana on July 19, 2022.
I can tell you that Anna Eshoo, David Canepa, and Kevin Mullin haven’t said Boo about it. WHY
We are seeing the Rishi Kumar lawn signs. Since he is challenging Anna Eshoo for the 2nd straight general election, I decided to look into this candidate for Congress, after winning the June primary against six candidates. I recently went to his campaign kick-off event. Turns out he’s a mechanical engineer, tech executive, and a 2nd term Saratoga Councilmember who was elected with the highest votes in 64 years of his city. Why is Rishi doing so well against Anna Eshoo, at 79 years old, a 30 year incumbent with 48 years in public service, when she had routinely dominated her elections by 72%? The answer soon became obvious. He is not a career politician, but has pragmatic ideas to solve everyday problems. And he fights for the people. Watching the “Pass the Torch” video playing on Rishi Kumar’s home page—the consistent words that were used to describe Rishi—Energy, Getting Things Done, Integrity, People-Centric agenda. Looking at the polling results page, I find it interesting that Eshoo’s primary election percentage is almost always the same as her general election. Her June primary vote tally was only 48%, a big drop from 72%.
Rishi is not running for Congress to perpetuate the status quo. Far from it. He wants to apply his tech savvy to better serve the constituents in his district, which includes Silicon Valley. Eshoo was first elected to Congress in 1992, before the internet was a thing. She is part of the system that takes care of their own, receiving campaign money from Pharma lobbyists and defense weapons manufacturers. She never needed to run a real campaign or spend campaign money in the past, but she has spent $1.14 million in the recent June primary election to garner her career low 48%. In Rishi, she finally has a real challenger. The downward trend has continued, now at a mere 35% voter support based on polling conducted by Rishi Kumar’s team and Rishi her only November opponent with no Republicans on the ballot.
Rishi has outworked her, he and his team have knocked on some 200,000 doors, listening to residents from San Jose to Pacifica. Eshoo hasn’t stepped foot in some of these cities and towns for a long time, preferring to run her tele-conference calls for decades. She now finds herself in a position against a tenacious challenger—one she has never faced before.
Rishi is an elected leader and community activist who has a track record of getting things done, reducing burglaries by 50% in Saratoga, defeating several San Jose Water Company rate hikes, challenging PG&E’s gutting of California’s solar program, stopped a road repair tax, and is a good steward of the environment, both in the South Bay and the Coast. He is a supporter of Medicare for All and legislating Pro-Choice. He rejects special interest money and influence. He has a track record of fighting for seniors.
This November the choice is between a professional politician whose main accomplishment is longevity with few bills introduced and passed by Eshoo, or a dynamic, tech savvy candidate who is not part of the political machine, but rather a genuine force for change who is truly a representative of the people. His passion and activist roots are what we need. It’s time to pass the torch.
How many of you reading this know that you are responsible for your Governments behavior.
Mark Racop is a part time minister that lives in Indiana, he also owns a small business that makes the 1966 Batmobile car. He is the only person licensed by DC Comics to build that car.
On July 19, 2022 an elite gang of 4 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees lead by SMCSO Lt. Michael Leishman arrived at Mark Racop’s business which is named Fiberglass Freaks, with the intention of Kidnapping the person, and taking possession of a unfinished 1966 Batmobile car and tow it back to Atherton, California.
In order to accomplish this BLACK-OPS MISSION you can just imagine how many San Mateo County Employees, Elected Officials including Judges were involved.
The response most reasonable people say when they first hear about this is “They Can’t Do That”
The FACT is They Did Do That. What are you going to do about it.
There are FOUR Candidates for Congress in this next Election.
Rishi Kumar is the only Candidate I’m aware of who not only CALLED Mark Racop.
Rishi Kumar took time out of his very busy schedule to attend Mark Racop’s August 19, 2022 Court Hearing in Redwood City, California.
Mark Simon and the SMDJ wrote that on October 29, 2020, almost 2 years ago.
Here we are today August 19, 2022 San Mateo County, California
My questions for Mark Simon and the Advertising Business he writes for.
The Batmobile case Abuse of Power, Abuse of Authority of Law Enforcement case that has more than 5M views, The case where the public is asking for San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to RESIGN, be criminally Charged and lose his PENSION. That case which has a court hearing this morning at 9:00 AM in Courtroom 8B. 22-SF-008723-A | The People of the State of California vs. MARK RACOP
Did Mark Simon or the San Mateo Daily Journal make a public statement on San Mateo County Government actions against a small business owner in Indiana named Mark Racop who happens to be the only person who is licensed to make the 1966 Batmobile Replica? One more fact about Mr. Racop, He is a Minister.
“Riddle me this”
Did Mark Simon or the SMDJ write an article about this story at all?
Did Mark Simon or the SMDJ call Mark Racop either for an interview or to offer support?
Did Mark Simon or the SMDJ request permission of the Court to attend this mornings hearing?
Will Mark Simon or the SMDJ attend Mark Racop’s Court Hearing today as a concerned citizen?
On October 29, 2020 Mark Simon wrote this about Rishi Kumar Candidate for Congress.
A FEW NOTES: Perhaps the goofiest campaign is being run by Saratoga Councilman Democrat Rishi Kumar, who is challenging incumbent Congresswoman Anna Eshoo. If long, rambling, boastful and offensive rhetoric is your thing, look at one of the verbose hit pieces produced by Kumar. My favorite claim is that he reduced crime in Saratoga, which raises so many questions it’s hard to know where to start. Is Rishi Kumar Batman?
I can tell you from my personal experience with Mark Simon, he is an arrogant BULLY, he likes to bully Victims.
Rishi Kumar has personally called and spoke to Mark Racop.
Rishi Kumar has called for San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to be FIRED.
Rishi Kumar “Free the man’s assets at the soonest opportunity.”
Rishi Kumar plans to be at this mornings Court Hearing for Mark Racop to show his support.
Isn’t funny how the Bully writes about Batman 2 years ago and today the Batmobile case is Shinning a light on San Mateo County’s Corruption and Organized Crime.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe “My prosecutor has obtained an order of the court unfreezing Mr. Racop’s bank account.”
22-SF-008723-A | The People of the State of California vs. MARK RACOP
Does anybody think this is the only case of Abuse of Power, Abuse of Authority in San Mateo County Law Enforcement just ask x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez or Former Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel Quintana.
4.3 million views: The San Mateo County Bolanos-Batmobile Misuse of Power Caper story has swept the entire country
An honest man, his business, and his employee’s livelihood has been jeopardized, and San Mateo County has been shamed.
Rishi’s run is about Ethics-in-Politics, and rooting out corruption, another reason why to vote Rishi over Eshoo. Note: There are no Republicans on this congressional district 16 ballot
Email the following to free this innocent man, stand for justice, and demand that Sheriff Bolanos resign
Local corruption can happen right here under our nose. San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos committed a severe error in judgment by sending a team of local deputies 2000 miles to Indiana to intimidate the world’s only licensed manufacturer of Batmobiles after a timeline dispute between a wealthy Atherton donor who had not yet received his Batmobile on time due to his late payments. Residents were shocked when an ABC7 News investigation by Reporter Dan Noyes shone the light of day on this case and it went viral.
Rishi’s stands with Batmobile’s Mark Racop: When the scandal broke Rishi was the first elected official to speak out against the illegal actions taken by the San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos and the first elected to demand his resignation.
CALL TO ACTION: The People can’t condone this abuse of power. The continued failure of those in power to act against similar corruption makes them complicit.
We need to take action! Cut and paste the email below and you will help free the Batmobile’s innocent Mark Racop!

Subject: Restore SMC’s integrity & Free the Batmobile’s Mark Racop
Dear President Horsley and Supervisors,
We elected you to oversee San Mateo County and Sheriff Bolanos’ blatant misuse of power and taxpayer dollars has shone an ugly spotlight on the county and your workWe ask you to take the following corrective action:
Demand Sheriff Bolanos to resign
Ask the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe to drop all charges against Mark Racop and
Unfreeze all of defendant Mark Racop’s personal and corporate assets.
Please take this immediate action and right this wrong!
Rishi only believes in protecting people: Unlike Eshoo, Rishi runs a corporate-free campaign and he’ll always do the right thing.
Please click on the button above and make a campaign contribution to help our ethics-in-politics run. Eshoo on the other hand is a massive recipient of Big Pharma campaign funds – which has significantly influenced her actions on healthcare and drug prices to favor Pharma.
Rishi’s quest is to root out corruption: It takes courage, integrity, and a people-over-profit perspective. Rishi has always stood strong against those who would use their office improperly.
Rishi’s track record: He fought against a proposition that deceptively increased Santa Clara County Valley Water Board terms. He was the only elected leader from 6 cities that has challenged the powerful San Jose Water Company – for their frequent rate increase proposals, stopping increases nine times.
Thank you for sending the above email!

The public is asking for Sheriff Carlos to be fired and his pension to be forfeited, Don Horsley has not made an official statement. Rishi Kumar candidate for Congress has.
Thanks to LATIMES reporter Erica D. Smith
“In an era where law enforcement is under such siege, this seems like this was not very well thought out,” San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley told me. “What we’re trying to do — what we should be trying to do — is establish credibility with people, not do things that look like we’re doing favors. And that’s kind of, unfortunately, what this looks like.”
And on Saturday, the county retained retired Superior Court Judge Winifred Y. Smith to launch yet another investigation. WHY? “What we can do is extremely limited,” said Horsley, who was sheriff for 14 years. “This is the California Constitution. The sheriff is an elected officer. We can’t remove them from office. And nor would we, over one particular incident, but it is a heck of an incident.”
This comment has got to be my favorite Former School Teacher, Former Sheriff, and President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Don Horsley quote: “We can’t remove them from office. And nor would we, over one particular incident, but it is a heck of an incident.”
Don Horsley said “over one particular incident” Is the Mark Racop Batmobile Abuse of Authority case the only case of Abuse of Law Enforcement that Don Horsley is aware of?
Has Don Horsley ever heard of ret. San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez two Criminal Cases involving the exact same San Mateo County Employees committing crimes against a Sheriff Deputy? 15-SF-001819-E | The People of the State of California vs. JUAN PABLO LOPEZ, People vs. Juan Pablo Lopez case NF433910A, SF395377F | The People of the State of California vs. JUAN PABLO LOPEZ.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Operation Dollhouse FBI Sting Operation on April 21, 2007 at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada at 9:30 PM. LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell stated his officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos INSIDE the residence. Now that was either a drug deal gone bad 3,500 ecstasy tablets, and $25,000 cash or they were INSIDE to have sex with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor. Nobody knows because has ever Investigated it.
Has Don Horsely ever heard about the 2010 report of 45 male employees in the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office watching and sharing PORN and a VIOLENT RAPE VIDEO on San Mateo County Computers?
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Chinedu V. Okobi being killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Did he ever watch the video that SMC Government made public which shows the Employees never provided medical assistance for 9 minutes after he stopped breathing.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Sandra Lee Harmon who was executed by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Employees in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. Has he ever watched the video that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provided the public which shows an unarmed woman with her hands up above her head and her back facing towards the Deputy who is firing at her. She did have 3 fatal shots in her back.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel Quintana who was falsely arrested and charged in RETALIATION for making a report in the HMB substation.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Investigation. SMCSO Lt. Michael Leishman was the lead Investigator, that is a nice trick having the Sheriff’s Office investigate itself.
San Mateo County News.com has been reporting on Gangs, Organized Crime, Corruption in San Mateo County Government for many years. I’ve listed just a few off the top of my head.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and the “Those Who Matter” gang have been operating for MANY years. This is just the Tip of the Iceberg.
