Rishi Kumar was the only politician that had the fortitude to not only stand up for me when the ridiculous accusations were made against me, but he actually showed up in the court room to demand the charges be dropped. If he’s willing to go that far to help a stranger in a far-off state, he’s going to work even harder for you, in yours. I believe in Rishi, and you should too.

Did any other Elected Official or Candidate for any office bother to make a simple phone call to Mark Racop to express his/her outrage as to the Abuse of Power by San Mateo County Employees?
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.
San Mateo County News.com is pleased to report that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office finally provided Mark Racop’s Bank in Indiana the document that it needed in order to unfreeze his Bank Account. “Holy sigh of relief” that was like pulling teeth.
The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Batmobile case 22-SF-008723-A | The People of the State of California vs. MARK RACOP
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.
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.
