Alex Tourk, Mike Callagy, Michelle Durand lied about the $10,000,000.00 of PPE. So what?

By Michael G. Stogner

That is not earth shattering News for San Mateo County Residents, SMC has a long History of Sheriff and UnderSheriff lying to the residents in public press releases, April 2007 is just one little example. SMC has Sheriff Sergeants and other Sheriff employees committing Felony crimes PC115(a) and even Perjury in the Courts. The Rachel Amanda Quintana case of Half Moon Bay and SMCSO Sergeant Mike Otte committing Perjury is just one example.

What date and time did San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy hire Alex Tourk for $15,000.00 per month to create and distribute a lie to the 760,000 residents of the County?

Mike Callagy should pay for Alex Tourk’s work out of his own pocket.

ABC7 I-TEAM Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes and James Brown President of the Wine Country Marines both made Public Announcements on January 13, 2022 about the PPE, San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management generous donation of the large amount of PPE that was to be distributed by WCM on January 25, 2022.

Dan Noyes accurately reported on January 13, 2022 that the value was more than $10,000,000.00

Dan Noyes accurately reported on January 30, 2022 the “Blatant Lie” from SMC Government Officials.

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy on January 13, 2022 said “He did not know the value.”

This is where Alex Tourk, Principal of Ground Floor Public Affairs comes in the picture.

Less than 24 hours after SMC Manager Mike Callagy said he didn’t know the value, a PR piece is mass distributed on a bunch of Bot media news sites regurgitating the exact same B.S..

Here is what Alex Tourk, Mike Callagy and Michelle Durand put out to the residents at 3:30PM 1/14/22

“The estimated value of the supplies based on the original purchase prices is $7 million.”

Today’s Google search: Mike Callagy $7M PPE Here are the results of just the 1st page notice the names of these News sites. That is what a PR firm does.

San Mateo County Residents might recall seeing that exact Public Relations Spin in the Hillsborough resident Zain Jaffer Criminal case in October 2017 where he was arrested by the HBPD for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son and 5 other Felony Counts. People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A.

He is the only defendant that I am aware of who had already hired Michael S. Sitrick who the L.A. Times calls “The Wizard of Spin” who had already prepared a Press Release about Zain Jaffer’s case being completely dismissed before anybody knew that District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and DDA Sharon Cho were going to ask a San Mateo County Judge to dismiss ALL of the charges. He (Zain Jaffer) read the prepared press release at court.

The Zain Jaffer case Records should be Studied not Destroyed.

By Michael G. Stogner

This case should be studied in every Law School in the United States of America.

On Monday January 3, 2022 at 10:00 AM the Hon. Judge Elizabeth M. Hill will hear a Motion to Destroy all of the Records and Body Worn Camera Video from the Hillsborough Police Department. This same motion was on calendar for December 20, 2021 where DDA Sharon Cho informed Judge Barbara Mallach that the District Attorney’s Office had ISSUES with this and filed a Motion to Continue which was Granted.

These Records have been sealed from the very beginning, the Public has never had access to these records. Why? Here is the Very Little information that we do know.

From: Steve Wagstaffe Sent: Wednesday, January 31, 2018 4:01 PM

To: Emily Mibach Subject: People v. Jaffer
Hi Emily,
Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor:
DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.”

Remember John Doe was Zain Jaffer’s 3 year old son.

Steve Wagstaffe Article e-mail to Media fails to mention his intention to Dismiss Entire Case.

The Odyssey Portal Superior Court Records for People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A shows this criminal case was first filed on February 13, 2018. That is 14 days after Steve Wagstaffe’s e-mail to reporter Emily. How does that happen?

Was Steve Wagstaffe’s e-mail to Emily Mibach a Violation of the Court Order to Seal the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts?

Zain Jaffer Case, Making San Mateo County Safer.

By Michael G. Stogner

As some of you know I have been working on Making San Mateo County Safer since 2000. I’ve always thought and I still do that Accurate and Honest Reporting and Data of Court Cases is a MUST in order to Make San Mateo County Safer for the Residents. The Zain Jaffer case is just one simple example I will give today.

Facts: October 15, 2017 4:00 AM Hillsborough, San Mateo County, California Zainali Jaffer 29 was arrested by the Hillsborough Police Department for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son.

He was never charged with Attempted Murder of a Child, by SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe.

Below is the Odyssey Portals Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo official record of Zain Jaffer’s court case. You will see the case was filed on Febraury 13, 2018. See if you can find the date the Preliminary Hearing was held? Also note this case was DISMISSED on July 2, 2018 that is FAST.

Zain Jaffer Wants to Help Others

Zain Jaffer the other day I wrote about you assisting Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez with his 7 year legal defense expenses now over $300,000, and I see that tomorrow David Khan of Daly City has a court appearance in front of Hon. Judge Barbara Mallach in Courtroom 2A at 10:00 AM just like you do. David Khan would be another person I recommend to you for your help. The other three families mentioned above have lost loved ones to Homicides by San Mateo County Law Enforcement. They could use you help against the Government in those cases.

Your prepared statement that you read when your case was Dismissed, July 2, 2018

“I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to defend myself through the legal system, but I am aware that many others are not. Moving forward, I plan on examining ways that I can help others who are innocent and are seeking to obtain justice.”

In the last 3.5 years I have not seen anyone that you have helped or even asked about for that matter.

Thank You, in advance for considering these cases. If interested I have many more cases for you.

California A.G. Rob Bonta, say something to Judge Barbara Mallach, Zain Jaffer Motion to Destroy BWC Video.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: This Motion to Destroy Records has been continued to January 3, 2022

Dear Attorney General Rob Bonta,

Please don’t forget Zain Jaffer was arrested by the Hillsborough Police Department on October 15, 2017 for Attempted Murder of a child, There is Body Worn Camera Video.

Tomorrow December 20, 2021 Superior Court of California County of San Mateo in Courtroom 2A at 10:00 AM the Hon. Judge Barbara Mallach has a Motion to Destroy all the records in the Zain Jaffer case 17NF012415A.

Destroying the Records and Evidence is Not in the Public’s Interest.

These records could be very valuable to the wife and children in the future.

Diminished Capacity is No Excuse for Criminal Conduct.

Zain Jaffer, x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case is what you are looking for.

By Michael G. Stogner

Mr. Jaffer said he appreciates that justice was served in his case and that he wants to help other people who find themselves in similar situations. “I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to defend myself through the legal system, but I am aware that many others are not. Moving forward, I plan on examining ways that I can help others who are innocent and are seeking to obtain justice.”

Mr. Jaffer I had hoped to see you sooner, that has not happened yet, let me bring the People vs. Juan Pablo Lopez case NF433910A to your attention, I think this case is exactly what you were talking about when you made your statement in a Superior Court of California County of San Mateo.

Just to refresh your memory, San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was arrested 7 years ago at gun point at one of his homes in front of his son. He was falsely charged with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member who was an inmate in the Redwood City Jail, so both of you know what the inside of that jail looks like.

The Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case is the perfect example of Organized Crime and Corruption that I have witnessed in the last 20 years. As you can imagine the personal humiliation of being arrested twice, falsely charged, the cost for Attorneys for 7 years, and the loss of Income for 7 years.

Most recently Hon. Judge Joseph Scott, Court Clerk Kimberly Bihl and Court Reporter Jocelyne Fakhouri conspired to commit a crime and then did. PC115(a)

Also most recently Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo Presiding Judge Leland Davis III issued a policy change for Public Access by Telephone.

Public Access Policy Updated 11/22/21 – The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.

This policy change is most likely connected to the Juan P. Lopez criminal case and the RECORDING from July 27, 2021 which PROVES a Judge, a Court Clerk, and Court Reporter committed a Felony.

Mr. Jaffer, I know you are busy, Thank You, for considering this as one of your cases to help.

Sitrick and Company hired by Zain Jaffer. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

How many Criminal defendants hire a P.R. Firm to promote the story they wish the world to hear.

Over the last 20 years I have attended many, many criminal cases and trials in San Mateo County, I know of only one case where the defendant hired a professional Crisis Management Public Relations Company to promote a fictional story. That case is the Zain Jaffer Criminal Case.

Some of you know I have recommended San Mateo County Residents Audit the Zainali Jaffer Case and the former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case. One start to finish less than 9 months and the other 6 years in the judicial system and still counting. What are the differences?

Sitrick and Company is one difference.

A Private Meeting with the District Attorney’s TEAM after a Preliminary Hearing is another difference. How many times does that happen? That meeting is where the SMC residents should focus, was it recorded? What was really communicated that afternoon, Think about that. What could possibly have been communicated during that meeting that caused many San Mateo County Employees to forget their Oath?

This is Terry Fahn & Stuart Pfeifer of Sitrick and Company’s Work July 23, 2018 which is 21 days after the Entire case was dismissed.

July 23, 2018 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.

“examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.”

Tweet this

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.”

Lets just take this one simple sentence by Terry and Stuart “Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual.

How does that statement stack up with this from Steve Wagstaffe on October 17, 2017.

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, we filed a felony complaint against defendant Zain Jaffer. We charged him with five felonies and one misdemeanor as follows: 

Count I 664-288.7(B) felony oral copulation on a minor under 10 years old Count II 288(B)(1) felony forcible lewd act on a child
Count III 245(A)(4) felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury Count IV 273(A)(A) felony child abuse 

Count V 273A(A) felony child abuse
Count VI 243(B) misdemeanor battery on a police officer 

On Tuesday afternoon, the defendant was arraigned in RWC Felony Court, Judge Cristina Mazzei. The defendant appeared with retained attorney Daniel Olmos of Palo Alto. The defense motion to continue was granted and no plea was entered. The case was continued to November 1, 2017 1:30 for entry of plea and to set a preliminary hearing date. Bail was set at $300,000. I do not know whether he is still in custody or has been released on bail (you can check with the Sheriff’s Office PIO for that detail). 

The child victim was the defendant’s three year old son. The officer who was the victim of the battery was not seriously hurt. My assistant will email to you a copy of the charging document setting for the charges. 

Thanks Steve

Hi Emily, 

Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor: 

DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.” 

It’s fair to say that Sitrick and Company did not include TRASH TALK- PUSSY while naked straddling a 3 year old child at 4AM in the backyard or INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER.

Sitrick And Company does not mention the many articles I wrote about this case at San Mateo County News.com and that is understandable they were hired to promote a different story and that they did. The Question I have for Sitrick and Company is Did you ever contact CPS? Were you EVER concerned for the Safety and well-being of a 1 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. I did and I was and still am concerned.

Back to the AUDIT. The day the Jaffer case was dismissed District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent this email to his favorite Media. Notice he DOES NOT MENTION HIS MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE. WHY?

“I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to defend myself through the legal system, but I am aware that many others are not. Moving forward, I plan on examining ways that I can help others who are innocent and are seeking to obtain justice.”

Message to Zain Jaffer Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez is a perfect case for you to pay attention to. You will remember he was arrested 6 years ago. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conferences told the World Deputy Sheriff Lopez Smuggled a Cellphone and Drugs to a Gang Member Inmate. It turns out those Charges were completely Fabricated Who Cares?

Next Court Date for Lopez is November 16, 2020.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe fails to Mention Motion to Dismiss the Entire Zain Jaffer case.

The Zain Jaffer case was dismissed July 2, 2018. That is a fact.

Prosecutions are implicitly limited to district attorneys per California Penal Code § 739, which describes the “duty” of district attorneys to file charges after a judge finds grounds that an offense has been committed. A judge did find that in the Zain Jaffer case.

So what really happened?

San Mateo County should Audit this case and determine if the legal process was followed. He was arrested for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son, why did that disappear so fast. Did CPS & APS follow protocol?

The decision to dismiss the entire Zain Jaffer case must have been made before this Media Update of Cases of Interest was sent out. What date was it decided to dismiss the case? What date was the motion to dismiss prepared? What date was the motion to dismiss filed with the court? The reason I ask these questions is that Zain Jaffer read a prepared statement in court written before hand by a public relations firm, so they all knew this was going to happen.

Update since this article first published Defense Attorney Patrick Clancy filed a motion to seal the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts of January 31, 2018 Motion granted by supposedly a SMC Judge. I say that because the DA doesn’t know who signed it.

We have compared it to the entire rooster, It would be nice if the name was printed below the signature.

Thank You

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.

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. The difference is Matthew Graves got charged, tried, convicted and sentenced. Mr. Bohannon no criminal case number filed, no court appearances, no trial, extracted from the legal process.

The Board of Supervisors of San Mateo County should order and pay for the Audit.
