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

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.”

David Canepa Congress or Recall?

By Michael G. Stogner

The Politician

San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa aka “Showboater” knows a great opportunity to Fund Raise when he sees one. Today he is holding his official Kickoff Campaign for Congress. He might as well, he has done nothing to make San Mateo County Safer or to Eliminate Corruption in San Mateo County that I am aware of.

Most recently in the (retired) San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez criminal case which has been going on for 7 years, Superior Court Judge Joseph Scott, Court Clerk Katrina Bihl, and Court Reporter Jocelyne Fakouri, Conspired to commit a crime, then did commit the crime of PC115A filing a False Instrument with the court which by itself is a Felony. All three made false statements under the penalty of Perjury. David Canepa thinks that is cool. I don’t.

A reasonable person would think the President of the Board of Supervisors would be Interested in making San Mateo County Safer for the ordinary resident, Nobody is Above the law, etc. Not David Canepa. Over the the last 7 years I have reported the Illegal conduct against Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, by multiple San Mateo County Employees, I can’t recall a single time that David Canepa showed any interest.

When Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. San Mateo County’s George Floyd, was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his Public Information Officer Immediately issued two False Press Releases both omitting the sixth very involved CSO Joseph Gonzales. David Canepa approved of that behavior.

December 4, 2018 BOS Meeting Video of Former San Mateo County DSA President Heintz Puschendorf

I took the above video, I drove up from Monterey County to attend that meeting I had every intention of speaking on behalf of Chinedu V. Okobi and his family. I sat in the front row next to SMCSO Deputy Heintz Puschendorf the entire meeting, after listening to all of the speakers and watching Supervisor David Canepa refusing to pay any attention to all of the speakers, He wouldn’t even look at them, I chose not to speak.

I wrote this Article David Canepa Please Pretend

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus and SMCSO ret. Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan and Supervisor President David Canepa all thought it was a Great Idea for the Sheriff’s Office to Investigate Itself. A reasonable person would know that is NUTS.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier announced this week she will not run for re-election.

In 2008 she demanded the Board of Supervisors Investigate the April 21, 2007, FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse where Under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was Caught and Detained Inside a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada at 9:30 PM. To this day 14 years later nobody has asked Carlos G. Bolanos why he entered that disgusting smelling home.

It was either to have sex with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor or a more logical reason is it was a Drug Deal of 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000 Cash.

San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa has never wanted to know the answer and he has been fine with now Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lying about it for 14 years.

I think Supervisor President David Canepa should resign from the Board effective today so that he and his TEAM can devote FULL TIME and effort into something he is really passionate about, which is Fund Raising and promoting himself. I wish him the best.

Welcome to San Mateo County

Supervisors to Supervise. What a concept.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Residents and Voters, this is really a simple fix. Replace the Current 5 Supervisors, with people who will SUPERVISE. Currently NONE of the 7 people who have stated they are running for the 2 Supervisor seats being vacated by Carole Groom and Don Horsley in this next election on June 7, 2022 have shown any interest in that subject.

That should be a Non Starter for most residents.

Existing law requires a board of supervisors to supervise the official conduct of all county officers and ensure that they faithfully perform their duties.

There is still plenty of time for the right candidates to Change the Course of San Mateo Government. The Filing Window is February 14, 2022 to March 11, 2022.

Remember it’s been almost 15 years since Candidate for Sheriff 2022, Now Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was Caught and Detained INSIDE a single family residence, where Human Trafficked Female Sex Slaves including a Minor were forced to have sex. Also $25,000 Cash and 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets were recovered. Sheriff Greg Munks said that he and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos did not intend to PAY FOR SEX. That has got to make SMC Residents feel much better.

Did anybody ever ask, Where did the 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets come from?

Since that night, to my knowledge, NO San Mateo County Supervisor has ever asked a few simple questions of now Candidate Carlos G. Bolanos. Note: The questions should be asked after he is sworn in.

Why did you get out of the Limo when you arrived at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada, April 21, 2007?

Why did you go INSIDE the single family residence that night?

What did Sheriff Greg Munks mean when he said you didn’t intend to PAY FOR SEX?

Did Sheriff Greg Munks mean the two of you were INSIDE the residence for a different purpose? If yes, What was the purpose for the two of you being INSIDE at the same time?

Was Jefferey C. Kearnan and Tom Galloway standing outside the residence, while you and your boss were INSIDE? If Yes, Why have you never acknowledge that before?

The real question is for the Voters of San Mateo County, Find the right people to be Supervisors and the problem is Fixed. Until than everything remains the same.

Welcome to San Mateo County

San Mateo County Government Attorneys do the exact same disgusting thing.

By Michael G. Stogner

Just ask the Families of Errol Chang R.I.P., Yanira Seranno Garcia R.I.P., Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. San Mateo County’s George Floyd, and Sarah Gatliff the daughter of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Roger Allen R.I.P. All Homicides by SMC Law Enforcement.

Los Angeles County wants a judge to force Kobe Bryant’s widow to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to prove she suffered emotional distress from leaked photos of the helicopter crash that killed her husband, daughter and seven others.

Who supports this disgusting behavior, all FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors, and almost every other elected official in the County.

Why would San Mateo County Residents need a Citizens Oversight Committee? That is what the Supervisors are paid to do, SUPERVISE.
