Hillsborough Police Chief Mark O’Connor comments on ex Vungle CEO Zain Jaffer’s arrest, and Status of the 2 Children.

By Mark DePaula
Town of Hillsborough, California, Police Chief Mark O’ Connor comments on the Zain Jaffer arrest October 15, 2017 at 4:00AM at his residence on Lancaster Road.
Late morning on July 27, 2018 I met with Police Chief O’Connor and Captain Davis of the Hillsborough Police Department.
It was a short but cordial meeting with these men in blue. I had 8 questions that I had asked them both, regarding the Zain Jaffer arrest that took place October 15, 2017. Chief O’Connor answered the questions with additional input from Captain Davis.
Listed below are the 8 questions and answers.
1. How many officers responded to Zain Jaffer’s Dad’s 911 call?
Answer: Three officers, one Supervisor -Sgt. Gould and two officers-all three from the Hillsborough Police Department.
2. Were they all wearing body cameras? Were the cameras on?
Answer: Yes to the body cameras–Yes, they were activated.
3. Do you have the video data from the body cameras?
Answer: Yes
4. Did Zain Jaffer assault your officers?
Answer: Yes, he spit at Sgt. Gould.
5. Where was Zain Jaffer transported to after being arrested?
 Answer: San Mateo County Jail.
6.  Do you stand by your 3 officers, what they witnessed and wrote in their report?
Answer: I stand by all of my officers and the actions they took during this incident.
7. Do you believe Zain Jaffer committed crimes that morning?
Answer: The responding Hillsborough Police Officers witnessed an in-progress assault.  Further investigation lead to additional charges against Jaffer as two other victims were identified.  Based on the investigation, there was probable cause to arrest Jaffer.
 
8. What is the status of Zain Jaffer’s children ?
Answer: The status of the children is being handled by the Family Law Court in San Mateo Superior Court.
Note from Michael G. Stogner
To my knowledge Mark DePaula is the only person who interviewed HPD Chief Mark O’Connor. There are 7 advertising businesses aka Newspapers in SMC. The significance of this is there were 7 Felony charges filed against Zain Jaffer and they stayed for 8 months, June 7, 2018 a meeting took place at the District Attorney’s Office which included Defense Attorneys Patrick Clancy & Daniel Olmos, Dr. Eric Wexler and Dr. George Woods. SMCDA Chief Deputy Karen Guidotti, Sean Gallagher and Sharon Cho. Three weeks after this meeting the District Attorney’s Office filed a motion to dismiss all charges, claiming Insufficient Evidence. Hon. Judge Stephanie Garrett granted that motion July 2, 2018.
Defense Attorney Patrick Clancy‘s statement from a Public Relations piece which is going world wide.

Mr. Clancy praised the District Attorney’s office for clarifying the facts and making it clear that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any sexual assault charge.

Innocent is what a JURY determines after the evidence is presented during a trial.

“Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual. He suffered an adverse reaction to medication and in the process injured some family members. It was accidental and could have happened to anyone,” Mr. Clancy said, “Thankfully, the District Attorney and his staff reviewed all the evidence and made the right decision.”

“The sexual assault charges were dismissed because they never happened.”

That statement is false according to DDA Sharon Cho “The acts that were charged we would say occurred.” 

We at San Mateo County News.Com believe the Town of Hillsborough Police Officers and Chief Mark O’Connor.

Release the Body Camera Videos.

San Mateo County’s District Attorney Office needs a Performance Audit.

 

 

Performance Audit conducted in accordance with auditing standards promulgated by the Comptroller General of the United States.

This is not a new idea former Town of Atherton Finance Director John Johns R.I.P. made this recommendation in 2010. It was a good recommendation then and is now.

With the Zain Jaffer x Vungle CEO case 7 felonies including oral copulation of a child and assault of a Hillsborough Police Officer simply disappearing from the legal process after a private meeting between the District Attorney’s Office and Mr. Jaffer’s attorneys.  DA Steve Wagstaffe believed he was guilty of these charges from day one for almost 8 months, right up until the private meeting at the District Attorney”s Office which included a presentation of the entire defense. That is what a trial is for.

Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti became the Judge and Jury in the Zain Jaffer case.

How many cases in the last 10 years has a Defense Team made a private presentation at the DA’s office?

How many of those presentations resulted in the District Attorney filing a motion to dismiss the entire case?

Judges are the last layer of Oversight for the People of California. When they see a suspicious or questionable motion from the District Attorney’s Office they should not only deny it, they should report it to the State Bar. This motion by Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti was both suspicious & questionable. Now we just have to find out Why?

Why did Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt grant the motion to dismiss? There already was a Preliminary Hearing that determined there was enough evidence for every charge to move forward. She could have denied the motion, Wagstaffe could have tested his evidence on the Grand Jury to get an indictment if he thought his case was weak. Instead he choose to dismiss the entire case and Judge Garratt assisted him in that effort.

* Those Who Matter* email from Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, he was noticing the residents of San Mateo County that there is a special group of people above the law.

e-mail sent 4/25/07 10:20 AM

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

For those readers who don’t know this e-mail was written to San Mateo County Sheriff and UnderSheriff days after they both were caught and detained as Customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including at least one child. April 21, 2007 FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada.

The Matthew Graves (also 30 yr. old man) case should be looked at, He was sentenced to 34 years in prison, 4 of those years are for violating a Restraining Order. This should be compared to Mr. David Bohannon being arrested twice by the Menlo Park Police Department. The second time was for violating a Restraining Order, The exact same thing Matthew Graves got 4 years in prison for.

Patrick Clancy attorney for former Vungle CEO Zain Jaffer misstates what Steve Wagstaffe says.

I have no idea why he would do such a thing. “Mr. Wagstaffe said: “We do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening.” That is Very different from completely innocent of any form of sexual misconduct.

Zain Jaffer should demand the release of the Hillsborough Police Department Body Camera Video of that morning. That will solve it.

SAN FRANCISCO — Patrick Clancy, attorney for Zain Jaffer, co-founder and former CEO of video ad company Vungle, today thanked Stephen M. Wagstaffe, District Attorney for the County of San Mateo, for going out of his way to clarify that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any form of sexual misconduct.

Mr. Jaffer was arrested in October 2017 after an altercation with family members caused by a dangerous reaction to doctor-prescribed medication. In July, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office dismissed all charges against Mr. Jaffer, a move that could open the door to Mr. Jaffer’s return to Vungle.

In a new statement published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Mr. Wagstaffe said: “We do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

Mr. Clancy praised the District Attorney’s office for clarifying the facts and making it clear that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any sexual assault charge.

“Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual. He suffered an adverse reaction to medication and in the process injured some family members. It was accidental and could have happened to anyone,” Mr. Clancy said, “Thankfully, the District Attorney and his staff reviewed all the evidence and made the right decision.”

“The sexual assault charges were dismissed because they never happened. It was only the physical injuries to his family that were dismissed because of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness. Unconsciousness can range anywhere from sleep walking to an epileptic fit. The person has no control over his actions, no awareness of his actions, and no intent to do any of his actions. He is unconscious.”

The San Mateo Daily Journal said Mr. Wagstaffe praised his prosecutors for “examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.” The D.A. told the Palo Alto Daily Post that they “avoided the possibility that Mr. Jaffer would be wrongfully convicted.”

Mr. Clancy said: “This should put an end to the spread of misinformation and gossip that has prevented Mr. Jaffer from returning to his role at Vungle, the start-up he founded.”

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe hasn’t satisfied Zain Jaffer.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe is talking more about the Zain Jaffer former Vungle executive found by police straddling his 3 year old son while fully naked in the backyard of his Hillsborough home at 4:00AM. Now 17 days after the entire case was dismissed without a preliminary hearing or any witnesses testifying under oath, Mr. Wagstaffe feels he has not done enough to satisfy Mr. Jaffer. Here is his latest PR statement to SFGATE, he did not send this to me co-owner of San Mateo County News. Note: Mr. Wagstaffe has refused to identify the alleged prescription medications that caused Mr. Jaffer to be Not Conscious while assaulting several people, resulting in 7 F’s & 1M charge. The DA’s Office quickly eliminated one felony charge of Attempted Murder.

The Charges that remained up until July 2, 2018:

Charge #1 Attempted Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with a Child 10 years of age or younger. PC 664.288.7(b) Felony

Charge #2 Forcible Lewd Act Upon Child, PC288 (b) Felony

Charge #3 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #4 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #5 Child Abuse, PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge #6 Child Abuse PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge # 7 Battery Upon a Peace Officer & Designated Person, PC 243 (b) Misdemeanor

SFGATE 7/19/2018

EDITOR’S NOTE: After the publication of this story, officials at the San Mateo County district attorney’s office said they wanted to clarify that “we do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

The FDA should issue a National Warning if the above statement is true.

Question to think about, Why would the District Attorney’s Office feel the need or obligation to clarify anything for Mr. Jaffer? He was facing life in prison if found guilty of the 7 felony counts. Steve Wagstaffe solved that for him.

Question? Steve Wagstaffe says “we do not believe.” That is why we have Juries, what did the evidence prove? If you didn’t believe it why did you charge him in the first place?

What could have possibly happened from October 15, 2017 to July 2, 2018 to cause this entire criminal case to simply disappear? And now 17 days later Steve Wagstaffe feels some pressure to make more public comments. What would cause that?

What about the 2 CHILDREN? CPS took them that morning, have they returned them because of Steve Wagstaffe’s actions?

San Mateo County Domestic Violence Protocol. Was it followed in the Zain Jaffer Case?

You might recall on July 2, 2018 Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt (a former prosecutor for Steve Wagstaffe) granted the DA’s motion to dismiss all charges. I don’t think the Hon. Judge Donald Ayoob would have granted that motion.

According to District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, police had originally gone to Jaffer’s residence after his father had told them he (Jaffer) had assaulted him. If the father lived there and the two cohabited, this would also have qualified as an act of domestic violence -triggering police to adhere to the County’s Domestic Violence Investigation Protocol to which Hillsborough PD is a signatory.

While at the residence, police allegedly heard a child screaming in the back yard and found a naked Jaffer straddling the child trying to force his 3-year-old son’s face into his genitals (a sex crime), according to Wagstaffe.

After stopping Jaffer which included using a taser, placing him into custody, making the scene safe, and ensuring the two children and father had been provided immediate medical aid, officers should have frozen the scene [the residence]; caused the child who had been sexually assaulted & his assailant (Jaffer) to be given a sexual assault examination, at the Keller Center; authored an affidavit seeking a search warrant for Jaffer’s residence, person, cellphone, vehicle(s), business office, electronic devices (computers, iPads, etc.), and internet service provider for evidence of the crime, child pornography, and drugs -Wagstaffe said LSD was involved.

Officers should have ensured samples of Jaffer’s blood and urine had been taken and preserved, contemporaneous to the assault, for later examination -addressing any question of whether or not he had drugs onboard, at the time of the described offenses; Wagstaffe indicated LSD had possibly been involved whose clearance half-life averages 3 hours, while its metabolite clearance half-life averages 12 hours.

If Hillsborough PD did not have anyone with the requisite knowledge and or skill set to conduct such an investigation, the agency should have sought assistance from the district attorney’s office who has its own cadre of “top flight” investigators -or so they would have us believe. Certainly, once the case had been submitted to the district attorney for charging, Mr. Wagstaffe should have recognized what investigative tasks were required and ensured they were done -any golden rods Steve?

It would be interesting to learn what direction / guidance, if any, the district attorney had provided to Hillsborough PD to help them or could this be like the fraud which had occurred at the San Mateo County Transit where Wagstaffe’s assistant, Assistant District Attorney Al Serrato, characterized false debits (journal entries) and attendant felonious diversion of 2.5 million dollars of public monies as unusual accounting practices -now we know why Al, a former Special Agent, is no longer with the FBI.

The investigating officers should also have summoned the County’s crime lab personnel to examine the victim’s and suspect’ s respective clothing, injuries, and the crime scene.

In short, it appears neither the County’s domestic violence nor sexual assault investigation protocols, respectively, had been followed and, consequently, Mr. Wagstaffe had been afforded and acted upon an excuse to drop all charges for a person that matters. DA Stephen Wagstaffe didn’t even put on a preliminary hearing where a judge could have considered the evidence and decided whether it was sufficient to hold Mr. Jaffer to answer. Why not Steve?

The County’s residents deserve better, a level playing field, professional law enforcement, and justice, not the corrupt facade Mr. Wagstaffe would have you accept.

San Mateo County Courts are Dangerous.

June 11, 2018

During a court hearing Defendant Michael Anthony Cereghino 22, stood up from the defense table made his way past the court reporter and started pummeling the witness on the WITNESS STAND. The witness is also the victim in this case.

What was the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy doing as Mr. Cereghino started to stand up? How did he/she allow this to happen in a Courtroom? The Safety of the Courts is the Sheriff’s Office responsibility. They had all the information they needed to know he was violent.

San Mateo County’s Sheriff currently is Illegally Appointed Carlos Bolanos (July 12, 2016) at this moment he is still an at-will employee and could be fired by the Board of Supervisors. Mr. Bolanos is responsible for the safety in the courts.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy, Victim and Whistleblower Heinz Puschendorf.

San Mateo County Family Court is stressful enough without the illegal orders from Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos to have his Deputies interfere with a parent while in the courtroom. I can relate because in 2002 Sherif Don Horsley and UnderSheriff Greg Munks did the exact same thing to me. Had two deputies detain me and force me to leave the Family Law Court where I had a hearing. This is how the Thugs do it. Michael G. Stogner

Press Release

My name is Heinz Puschendorf- I am a 21-year veteran Deputy Sheriff of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. I was a long time Member and Representative of the San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association- being the last Past- President of the Association 2006-2008.

I am also a write-in candidate for Sheriff of San Mateo County- June 5, 2018 election.

I releasing this information about YET another series of Aggressive Bullying and multiple corrupt actions that I’ve personally experienced, as well as in representing hundreds of past/current Sheriff’s Office Employees (as recent as 2014) and/or even representing myself, which has forced me to whistle-blow Dozens of times in these past years

My message TODAY is very plain and clearly:  The San Mateo County Management structure which encompasses, but is not limited to: The Sheriff’s Office, the Human Resources Department, The District Attorney’s Office and the Board of Supervisors have all worked cooperatively to violate their Oaths of Service by harassing, defrauding employees and undermining anybody that would be able to damage the County’s Executive Management structure.

The incident I am describing today is yet another set of deeds that begins from the top (as orders being passed down through the chain of command) with the current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, down to his Undersheriff Ed Wood, then through all of the Sheriff’s Office Management team (Assistant Sheriff’s, Captains. Lieutenants and usually ending at the rank of sergeant against line level staff. Alas, Frequently, over the past ten years, there has been Questionable Motives imposed by the Deputy Sheriff’s Association Executive Management (Mostly by the Current President) who has fallen directly in line with Carlos Bolanos, which has helped to foster, already Hostile situations, in which they can defame, defraud or embarrass individuals. Those actions have included NOT properly Representing Turmoiled Employees being pressed with arrest and/or threatened with severe punitive actions. I have knowledge of this, because, since 2008 I have assisted in filling that VOID for Employees. The Union is aware of incidents and will also just take a PASSIVE Aggressive approach to “PICK and CHOOSE” who they will defend, with the Current President making outlandish statements in the past that he “IS NOT Accountable as President to ANY Members in the Union Membership,” Although he and the Executive Board (his cronies) live “High on the Hog” from OUR Union Dues.

My current incident This past Friday, May 25, 2018 in which, under orders of Carlos Bolanos and Undersheriff Ed Wood, a Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s abused their authority, restricted my freedom/ability to voluntarily leave (I was then OFFICIALLY under arrest, not free to leave, which then led to not properly releasing me through legal process), assaulting me, harassing and threatening me, while I was awaiting the beginning of my Family Court case. Then the subsequent series of NON-actions by all of San Mateo County’s pre-ordained utilities to protect employees, whistleblowers and/or individuals who want to report misdeed, misconduct and an overall lack of really trying to find the truth of complaints:

At 900 am, I tried entering the Redwood City Courthouse building through the employee entrance, which is located on the North-side, MAIN Public Entrance, by using my Sheriff’s Office issued access card. I tried at least a dozen times (swiping my card) to enter, BUT I was denied entry. I thought it was strange as I saw others before and after me enter via the same access door (so my card should have worked as it has in my 20+ years of service).

Over the past 4 years I have been working through Disability from an on-Duty injury. And I have always entered through these public access doors. I followed proper protocol and identified myself and advised I DID NOT have any weapons to declare. I spoke to several staff members and a sergeant (later involved in this incident), as I was going to Courtroom C on the 7th Floor, where I sat with my attorney, awaiting the start of my Family Law Court case.

At 10:00 am, a Sergeant (whom I had spoken with earlier in the morning upon entering building) approached me and said I “Should step outside the Courtroom, into the hallway” because he had “something to tell me.” I told the Sergeant My Court case was next and we could speak after I was done. The Sergeant insisted I go out, so I told my Attorney that I would return shortly, after speaking to My Sergeant in the Hallway, so my case wouldn’t get delayed.

I followed my Sergeant out of the courtroom, and as I got through the door and on the railed 3-foot-wide ramp exit (which creates a fenced in feeling from the doorway), I was besieged and surrounded by Sheriff’s armed/uniformed staff (2 sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s). I immediately became scared and felt threatened since they all in unison began to speak, push and close the space around me.

I asked the Sergeants what was wrong and they said I “illegally entered the building, NOT being an employee” and I “should not have by-passed the security checkpoint”- to which I responded “I’m an employee, although injured and being defrauded of my legal Worker’s comp rights at the Direction and orders of Sheriff Bolanos and Human Resources. BUT I entered and conducted myself legally and appropriately, reminding them ALL I had at one time or another trained each of them, as well as I have been a Sheriff’s Employee longer than ANY of them.

In Fact, I am still listed as a full-time employee on non-paid status (which actually is a non-existent status), which was just recently published in a local news story in the past week. So, I told them I wanted to go back in to the Court & all (uniform staff mentioned) stopped me by grabbing my clothes and/or physically using their bodies so I could not move or leave and told me “YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK IN.”

During this entire event I was Loud, verbally, had my hands/palms raised and open to show I was not a threat and to be sure I was not misunderstood. BUT this also served as another way for the entire 7th floor to hear, then see and by coming out into the hallway, know what was happening.

I then wanted to know under what authority they were detaining me and they all told me it was a standing order and that if I wasn’t so “mentally unstable and violent” that BECAUSE of their concern for the safety of the judge, the courtroom and the public, I’d be “handcuffed and arrested” forcibly missing Family Court and I “would have lots of other bad things happen… so just relax or else.”

I then said I wanted to speak with the Transportation/Court security Lieutenant, when he spoke up (in plain clothes a few feet away on the other side of the railing, but through staff told Me again I was illegally inside of the building and I was going to be arrested as a danger since I was “unstable.”

I then explained “I am an employee” and they all became more aggressive towards me as the Lt also got in my face, then in a threatening tone said “The Sheriff said it’s a standing order and its posted outside the entrance.” The Lieutenant then told me that if I didn’t comply he’d have me arrested.

We bantered back and forth for another several minutes, when I told all of them that I don’t understand why they’d be picking on me, because I know all the rules we operate under and even at one time or another had trained them all and that they were illegally detaining me.

I then demanded to speak with the Lt’s immediate boss (Captain), but he told me there wasn’t one in. I then demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (one of the 3), But the Lt told they were also not in today.

I was being continuously pushed and prodded by the staff and in an attempt to get me to fight with them several times and all of them continued using their bodies to keep me from leaving, re-entering the courtroom or just being able to leave for a total of at least 15 minutes.

I then specifically asked about Undersheriff Woods and Sheriff Bolanos and the Lt told me don’t worry they’re aware, “BUT you violated the law, because you are NOT an employee to enter that way.”

So, after several more minutes of arguing I then advised them that I would go back to court and we could address their inappropriate actions which are ILEGAL and I was going to file complaints against them: Lt Allen said something to the effect of “Well it won’t go anywhere, except ad for you in all ways so I’m not worried.”

Several more minutes of our arguing and the Staff’s pushing, prodding of me when (someone from inside of Courtroom 7C opened the door so I was then able to scoot past and away from my Aggressors, pushing us out of the way. Although I was told I could not leave or enter my courtroom- I did so in an attempt to get protection.

I was then followed in by one of the Sergeants and he sat behind me in the courtroom as My case was called. After My hearing the Sergeant followed me over the next 30 plus minutes staying near me as I exited the courtroom (with my attorney) and followed (in close proximity behind) me while in the courthouse, until I went down to the 3rd Floor – Sheriff’s Administrative office to report the incident and file complaints.

While at the Sheriff’s Admin Office I WAS again met with and given a cold reception by another Lt (temporary -Services/Internal Affairs commander). This Lt then tried to brush off the incident until I demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (since the previous Lt advised me the Undersheriff & Sheriff were a party directing the actions in this matter).

Unfortunately, this was not the first time I have whistle-blown. And in just a short time this incident was again flowing the same dysfunctional and repetitive path of so many other past cases, which were SQUASHED.

So, I again, filed complaints/crimes and wrongdoing: according to ALL policies, Orders, Contracts and legal processes: going to the Sheriff’s Office, to Human Resources, to the District Attorney’s Office and the Union.

As of Today, the past practices of trying to let a complaint fall dead to the wayside by NON-Action is why  I am taking this opportunity to Expose these ILEGAL actions, in hopes that the Media, Other Local/State/Federal Elected Officials, Residents and Voters of San Mateo County will take action, DEMAND the immediate resignation and/or follow up so as to administer Any/All other Appropriate Actions/Punishment which should be taken, to assure this type of Abuse does not happen again and that it IS NOT going to be tolerated.

There is plenty of evidence to Prove ALL my Allegations for this particular incident and My greatest HOPE is that ALL of the PAST and/or Previous Employees and staff that have been wronged will also stand up and speak out!

This has been yet another series of BULLYING and abuse of Powers that has been commonplace in Our Sheriff’s Office for Years. These actions are just like the other illegal actions by these same parties to falsely harass Juan Lopez in 2014. Juan Lopez was a write in candidate and he was fired, harassed and wrongfully prosecuted for A LONG LIST of Falsified Charges, which now HAS the Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe liable for their parts in False Charges being presented to the San Mateo Grand Jury. There is A FEDERAL Lawsuit recently filed for these allegations. I am going to be the next case against All of the same people, with an almost exact duplicated set of FALSIFIED Details.

Because I am a Write in candidate for Sheriff and opposing – not Just Carlos Bolanos, but all the other INCUMBENTS who portray the same corrupt, perverted, evil and overall criminal actions by MOST of those he has promoted and surrounded himself with at the Executive Management Administration and are also currently running for Re-election this June 5th.

I have been the whistleblower of several of the most recent incidents that have transpired, as well as many past criminal/illegal activities by Various San Mateo County Officials and Officers/Staff. This has also included my Exposing that (past Sheriff’s) Greg Munks and Don Horsley along with multiple others (including Myself) know that CARLOS BOLANOS and GREG MUNKS have LIED COMPLETELY about the 2007 Las Vegas OPERATION DOLLHOUSE Underaged SEX Slave Brothel Arrest/Detention.

My Criticism has also extended to ALL of San Mateo County:

Ø the Board of Supervisors (From at least 2007 Until and through NOW- Which includes Jerry Hill, Mark Church, Don Horsley and Rich Gordon)

Ø The District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe

Ø The County Managers (Maltbie and Bosch)

Ø Human Resources (Specifically Faiza Steele)

Ø The San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association (Mainly Current President, who was also aware of the Details, Information and evidence I uncovered)

Ø Elected Public Officials (Feinstein, Pelosi, Eshoo, Jerry Hill, Rich Gordon- to name JUST a few)

ALL of these Individuals have Culpability and are Directly connected to working on keeping Me and ANY/ALL others who know what happened (as well as with other violations) to be suppressed, Harassed and Ordered to NEVER Mention the LAS VEGAS Brothel EVER AGAIN!!! OR the Person who does speak out, they would BE DRONED OUT of the Sheriff’s Office and Fired using any and/or ALL Means Necessary to GET RID of THEM!!!

At the end of the Bolanos and the third Sheriff’s Candidate Mark Melville, Debacle – I became infuriated seeing Carlos Bolanos being so smug, with HIS Entire Administration sitting literally in front of Melville (in an intimidating presence), then there were 3 Executive Management Members and Carlos Bolanos himself approached me (spitefully, knowing I was disabled and being defrauded of ALL my Legal Rights), they each asked me HOW MY RETIREMENT WAS…. I was upset and loudly (with several witnesses) told them What Jackelopes they were and THAT I AM STILL BEING DEFRAUDED of my PAY.

Carlos Bolanos then told me he would check on things, BUT HIS understanding was that I ONLY Had to SIGN a PARTICULAR

Piece of PAPER (NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT). I then asked him if he could expedite things so I could retire and get paid, since I have not been paid in OVER A YEAR. Carlos B. said he would and, that he’d call me the next morning. At about 10:00am I had not received a call from Bolanos, so I tried calling him, but he never did. SO, I immediately went to the Elections Office to file my paperwork.

 #VOTENONINCUMBENT             #VOTECHANGE

My platform is FOR REFORM, which is Hard enough on its own, BUT with these Historical types of Coercion, My Attempting to reverse all the other Frauds being committed by and for the Sheriff’s Office (Supported by ALL Other County Admin Heads) is insurmountable Alone.

It will take All of San Mateo County (MEDIA, Politicians, Residents and ESPECIALLY VOTERS) to come together and force these individuals out and CHANGE the entire disposition and demeaner of Corrupted individuals and/or system. These Actions in Criminal Investigations would be Cause for INDICTMENTs under the RICO (or Criminal Enterprise/Syndicate) Act. NOT to mention a series of Brown Act Violations as well (for the ELECTED individuals).

I have attempted to CONTACT ALL Sources RECENTLY, BUT Before My Incident. SO, I hope Others (Politicians, Voters, the General Public and/or the FBI) will NOW take serious ACTION.

I live in an extreme state of fear, Just like Many other  of the Hundreds to Thousands  of Employees/Ex-Employees) awaiting the inevitable FINAL series of predictable Maneuvers or BLOWS by the County/Sheriff’s Office to next destroy an individual’s credibility with pure lies and search warrants, OR as Bolanos supporters have recently done, creating a hostile web-site and using Web to Cell phone technologies to negatively interact and push their PRO-Bolanos tactics, BLASTING ANY/ALL opponents in this Election.

It’s NOT Too Late to FIX, Please #standupspeakout LET Them Know, that this is NOT acceptable behavior and that these evil/criminal processes WON’T be tolerated.

Only YOU can Stop and Fix This.

Thank you respectfully,

Heinz Puschendorf
