One of those subjects was “Audit SMCC and Pay for the Edais Family Legal Fees.”
Why would Mark De Paula a San Mateo County resident make that suggestion?
He’s talking about this case 21-CIV-04737 | MUSTAFA EDAIS, et al vs. ROBERT FAUCRAULT, et al
He’s requesting an Audit of John Nibbelin, David Silberman and Brian Kulich at the SMCC.
Does anybody know or remember that Mark De Paula placed himself on the ballot of the June 2022 election at the very last moment as a Write-In Candidate for Coroner? Why would he do that when it was Impossible for him to when?
He did it because he had just heard about Munir Edais very suspicious death in his Daly City Apartment sometime between January 19-21, 2020. He said if he was Elected he would turn over all of the data the Coroner’s Office had on the Munir Edais case. He felt that was the least he could do as the Coroner of San Mateo County.
Oversight of the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office, What a Great Idea?
As all San Mateo County Residents know by now there are NO News Reporters that cover the Court cases in San Mateo County. What the 7 print media publishes is what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe tell them to publish, which is not a very good idea IMHO.
For example you might recall the Mark Racop criminal case aka the Batmobile case where ABC 7 I-TEAM Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes first reported thanks to his inside the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office sources the alleged Illegal conduct by several San Mateo County Employees. That NEWS report was the start of more than 10,000,000 VIEWS and 22,000 COMMENTS in a 10 week period.
Last Monday San Mateo District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told Dan Noyes that he has decided to drop all charges. Why?
Why would the District Attorney care if a reporter broke a story about alleged criminal conduct by SMC Law Enforcement including judges?
The BATMOBILE case caused Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to go on a 30 day VACATION. Remember this was right after he LOST the Election, and Dan Noyes and others wanted to ask him questions about, why he authorized 4 of SMC’s finest to fly to Indiana to arrest and bring back the Minister who builds Batmobile cars?
There was even speculation that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was in Greece with Sam Anagnostou who was a donor to San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League a 501(c) 3. Which San Mateo County News.com was the first to report that Barbara Bonilla the Executive Director and Carlos G. Bolanos’s 2018 campaign manager was on Administrative Leave while an Embezzlement and Money Laundering criminal Investigation was taking place.
Just a note: ABC 7 was not interested in that story.
As luck would have it a person who knows Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos very well bumped into him on July 30, 2022 in Menlo Park. Why would the Government want to exclude that?
You can just imagine the effort the San Mateo County District Attorney and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman are going through to EXCLUDE that evidence.
10/03/2022 Motion Comment People Motion to Exclude Evidence of Bolanos / xxx Interaction on July 30, 2022
Your request (attached) has been forwarded to me for response. I have some questions regarding the scope of your request, but I am hoping they may turn out to be academic and not require resolution based on what I write below.
I received a similar request to yours (prior to yours) that has been narrowed down to:
Emails to or from each of the five Supervisors and Mike Callagy in the last three months that contain the terms: “Racop”, “Logansport”, “batmobile” or “Anagnostou”.
That requestor is also interested in emails between Steve Wagstaffe and Mike Callagy or the Board. Those will also be provided if they exist. The requestor was also interested in all emails to or from the Sheriff with those terms and I previously conducted an equivalent search and didn’t find any.
Because that Public Records Act request came to me first and underlaps with yours, I am going to work on that one first and then provide you with the same documents I provide that requestor. My hope is that, that search will provide you what you are seeking and/or help us work together to design any subsequent searches. So my proposal is that I do that and then you let me know after you have reviewed that material if you are seeking additional searches. Does that work?
I would observe that although they will be captured by my search, the other requestor is not interested in emails from members of the Public expressing their views of the case. If YOU WANT those emails I need to know NOW so I can flag them when I am conducting my review?
I will observe that communications with the County Attorney’s Office that exist (if any) would likely be exempt under Section 6254(k) of the Government Code and the attorney-client privilege as well as the work product doctrine. Further any emails with the District Attorney that reflect the investigation itself would be exempt under Section 6254(f). Both categories would be withheld from any production.
For anybody that read the August 16, 2022 letter sent by San Mateo County Government to Rob Bonta the Attorney General of California you could see in the first sentence the cause of the letter “RECENT PUBLIC ATTENTION.”
Mark Racop has concerns about getting a Fair Trial in San Mateo County, He should be Very Concerned, Who in their right mind wouldn’t be? I’ve said for about 22 years San Mateo County Courts should be CLOSED until the Supervisors can assure the residents of Fair and Level Playing field in our Courts. They have NEVER been interested in that subject matter.
How many times has the (CRP) been activated since its creation in 2008?
Instead of Supervisor President Don Horsley and the 4 other Supervisors opening up who knows how many Looking Into/Report Back, The Attorney General Rob Bonta The Sheriff’s Office & The District Attorney’s Office sort of Investigate something request, and the hiring of a retired Judge Winifred Y. Smith at $650.00 per hour with a $75,000 contract to do Who Knows What.
San Mateo County Government, Just make the Affidavit PUBLIC.
Think of the 5 Supervisors of San Mateo County as the Engineer, Brakeman/Woman, Conductor etc. Those who Run/Operate the TRAIN. The TRAIN is the Government, the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, SamTrans, Private Defender Program, Coroner’s Office, Judges, Service League of San Mateo County, Sheriff”s Activity League and the MEDIA, all of the Investigative Reporters in San Mateo County for the last 20 years.
I invite you to name 2 if you can.
“Stop the Train” is something a Whistleblower would say. You know “See Something Say Something.”
“See Something Say Something” The question I have is: Say it to WHO?
How many of you have ever taken the time to attend the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Meeting to make a “Stop The Train” report of Criminal Conduct of some very important San Mateo County Employees?
Let us look at the word SUPERVISOR notice it doesn’t say SUPERVISE/OR.
The meaning of SUPERVISOR is one that supervises; especially : an administrative officer in charge of a business, government, or school unit or operation.
In the last 22 years I have NEVER seen a San Mateo County Supervisor do what is described above in definitions.
There are so many “Stop The Train” moments that I am aware of I’m sure there are many more. If I had to pick the most obvious one that demonstrates the Government’s Involvement in Public Corruption I would have to say it was the April 21, 2007 FBI/Las Vegas Metro Police Department Human Trafficking of SEX SLAVES including and MINOR and possibly a Drug Deal Involving San Mateo County Sheriff Munks and Undersheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others.
Sheriff Greg Munks and Carlos G. Bolanos were both Caught and Detained (Handcuffed) Inside 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada. Source 2 Las Vegas Police Department Officials. (Cassell & Hughes)
Of course the Current Batmobile, x SMC Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, and the SMC CORONER Robert Foucralt cases, all demonstrate the exact same behavior of San Mateo County Officials and Employees.
It is highly unusual for an affidavit, which lays out the probable cause that a crime was committed, to be released before charges are filed.
In San Mateo County’s Batmobile case 22-SF-008723-A the AFFIDAVIT is still SEALED after charges have been filed. Why?
I know this is going to come as a shock to some of you reading this but sometimes the Law Enforcement Official who has word-crafted and or signed the AFFIDAVIT is LYING to the Judge.
The entire Legal and Judicial system is based on trust that everyone who has the authority to arrest, shoot, charge and judge you are honest and decent human beings who have taken an oath to uphold the law. They would never Lie to a Judge or the Public, that is the Perception, right?
Just ask Ebele Okobi who said this after her brother Chinedu V. Okobi was murdered by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018. “I am angry at myself for believing any of the lie put out by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.” “I am angry at myself for believing that District Attorney Wagstaffe was acting as an impartial defender of the public.”
Just ask x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez about the AFFIDAVIT SMCSO Andrew Armando filed with San Mateo County Judge Miram in order to get a Search Warrant and seize his cellphone.
J. Tony Serra SBN 32639 NF-433910-A May 01, 2018, “Detective Armando’s Perjuriously alleged that Mr. Lopez placed a telephone call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.”
The title sounds like the beginning of a Joke doesn’t it. It’s not. San Mateo County Gang activity has a light shining on it like never before. More than 5 Million Views and over 20,000 comments in just 2 weeks time. Many of the comments want Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe to resign. They are calling for criminal charges against the Sheriff, and forfeiture of his pension.
How many San Mateo County Elected Officials think Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe should resign? “Therein lies the problem”
Some of you might recall that I personally asked Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to resign for their behavior on April 21, 2007. They didn’t and not one San Mateo County Elected Official made the same request after the April 21, 2007 activity.
The Batmobile Case
Comment: The Almanac
Posted by Jake Leone a resident of Menlo Park: other on Aug 18, 2022 at 12:57 pm Jake Leone is a registered user. Anagnostou knew this was a civil case the DA told him this the first time he filed a criminal complaint. In California, if you file a false police report, you can get 6 months in jail, a hefty fine, and have to pay restitution to the county, for all expenses, official hours, and any damages as a result of your crime. Knowing the case was strictly civil, Mr. Anagnostou filed a 2nd complaint using with untruthful information, that may well constitute a crime in California, Wagstaffe should be investigating this and issue a public warning/citation to all relevant parties. Anagnostou should at least be cited in this case. The reason is that Mr. Racop could file a massive lawsuit against San Mateo county. That lawsuit would continue to cost county taxpayers a lot of money,possibly millions fighting it and settling it. If Anagnostou is properly cited as having violated California law, San Mateo could deflect some of the cost of the lawsuit and any settlement to Anagnostou. Obviously, it might “Feel” like getting ripped off. But Mr. Anagnostou was not ripped off. This was all part of the agreement that he signed. He failed to make payments, then demanded the car be delivered, he used the Sheriff’s department as an enforcer. Anagnostou used the Sheriff’s department to extort and defraud Mr. Racop. The optics are not the problem. We see the problem clearly because it has exposed serious flaws in San Mateo country law enforcement community that need to be rectified. We can’t let our police be weaponized to become extra-judicial enforcers in what was then known to all parties to be nothing but a civil dispute. That Mr. Anagnostou was free to pursue in the civil courts. As far as we can tell, the car was under production, and probably would have been delivered by now except for the criminal complaints and lawsuits by Mr. Anagnostou, as Mr. Racop was unsure whether to proceed with the build or if a court was going to order that he cancel the job and pay back Mr. Anagnostou.
Comment from PADP August 20, 2022
Jake_Leone says: AUGUST 20, 2022 9:06 AM AT 9:06 AM Mr. Racop was following the terms of the contract signed by Mr. Anagnostou. Mr. Anagnostou failed to fully pay for the car, but then demanded that Mr. Racop either return the money or the car. Mr. Racop was under no obligation, at that point, to do either, as the money had already been committed. Mr. Anagnostou complained to the DA, and the DA said it was civil case. Mr. Anagnostou then filed a civil case, and was obliged to follow that civil case up in the appropriate court system, in Indiana. Mr Anagnostou became impatient (though the car was halfway done, per the contract). And asked his friend, Sheriff Bolanos, to go and Intimidate Mr. Racop. The Sheriff then rammed an affidavit through the DA’s office. Mr. Anagnostou knew this was an unfinished civil case, he didn’t want to deal with the civil courts, so he weaponized the police and used them as a way to extort Mr. Racop. In California, if you file a false police report, the penalty is 6 months in jail, a hefty fine, and restitution to the government for costs incurred. Why is no one talking about the case this way? Because the DA and Sheriff are all friends and friends with Mr. Anagnostou. The Board of Supervisors is playing a dangerous game, clearly the law has been broken, not by Mr. Racop but by Mr. Anagnostou and our County Sheriff. This opens up the possibility that San Mateo county could face a big civil torte suite from Mr. Racop, over the weaponizing of Sheriff’s department, to extort money and property from Mr. Racop, and by endangering Mr. Racop’s health from the horrid stress of this incident. The DA should promptly dismiss this case. Issue a citation to Mr. Anagnostou. And deflect any lawsuits, using that citation, as this could be considered the result of a crime by Mr. Anagnostou. Keep in mind, nothing is moving until Mr. Racop knows whether the civil court will direct him to pay back Mr. Anagnostou, or to finish the car, or give the car to Mr. Anagnostou as-is. And that has been the case for more than a year now. So the best way to resolve this is to either settle this out of court or be patient and let Mr. Racop finish this build.
San Mateo County Residents and Taxpayers should be asking the FIVE Supervisors why NONE of them are thinking like Jake Leone.
