Shame on you, San Mateo Daily Journal

Note: The San Mateo Daily Journal reaches 83,500 per day.

Editor,

I’m astounded to read that the Daily Journal is endorsing Carlos Bolanos for sheriff (“Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff” in the April 13 edition of the Daily Journal). Are you going to endorse a man that was at the scene of an illegal brothel as a private citizen where FBI sting “Operation Dollhouse” goes down and he says he’s not inside?

Your endorsement article states: “Clearly, there was a significant lapse of judgment.” And somehow you still feel as if you can trust this man’s leadership? Thank you for bringing this issue to light. I was astounded back in 2007 when this incident happened with no repercussions for then-sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos.

Let’s all think about that. The top two law enforcement officials in San Mateo County were both at a private residence outside Las Vegas as private citizens when the “Operation Dollhouse” sting goes down and where federal agents seized 3,500 tablets of ecstasy and $20,000 in cash during the raids. Additionally, seven people were arrested for allegedly operating the brothels, and 25 prostitutes were taken into custody.

And these men are there, why? They didn’t know it was a brothel? Are you kidding me?

I’ve heard of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but sometimes you put yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is the man the Board of Supervisors feels is worthy of being the top law enforcement official in the county? Am I missing something here? I’m sorry, but my vote is going to Mark Melville.

Melville has a proven track record and I don’t see any “significant lapse of judgment” in his past. We need a sheriff we can feel confident in their leadership abilities, follows the rule of law and, most importantly, someone we can trust.

Carlos Bolanos wants to communicate to Michael Stogner on phone or in person.

 

Michael G. StognerI have worked as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 19 years. Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos has never wished to communicate to me before July 19, 2017. After I heard about his comments at the Progress Seminar in Monterey County last weekend in response to an e-mail sent to all SMC elected officials.

“Im going to take care of them after the election.” “It will be dealt with.”

I was curious as to the sudden interest Bolanos had in communicating with me. I went back to look up my e-mails, here they are.

Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention.  I understand that the phones on the 6th floor have been repaired.  I apologize to Ms. Graves for the inconvenience.  I have copied Captain Scott Kirkpatrick who oversees Maguire and would ask that Ms. Graves contact him prior to her visits to ensure that they occur.
Best regards,

Hello Carlos,
Could you look into this please.
I always visit Matthew on Sunday. These last two weekends it has gotten very crowded. Now on the Six floor there is only two rooms out of four. Today the list was full. I had to go. I will try again on Tuesday.
That county is getting enough money to keep the visiting rooms in working order.
Thank You

This most likely is why Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos wanted to communicate with me. Letter was published by the San Mateo Daily Journal that same day. He was detained inside a single-family residence.

Human trafficking sentencing

Editor,

This is a response to “Jury issues first-ever human trafficking conviction in county: Man found guilty of crimes stemming from Burlingame” in the Feb 18 edition of the Daily Journal.

When I think about human trafficking of underaged sex slaves in San Mateo County, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos comes to mind. He was detained inside a single-family residence located at 3474 Eldon St., Las Vegas, Nevada April 21, 2007, around 9:20 p.m. by the FBI and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, according to a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. There were several women in the home.

 The residents of San Mateo County all know what our District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe thinks about “those who matter,” being questioned at a place where there are human trafficked sex slaves. Here is the email Wagstaffe sent 10:20 a.m. April 25, 2007, that I received from a Freedom of Information Act request:

“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”

Mathew Graves turned down a 10-year prison term plea bargain because he had faith in our judicial system and he knew he was not guilty of the charges the DA charged him with. He faces 30 years in prison Friday, July 21.

Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos at the Progress Seminar. “I’m going to take care of them after the Election.” “It will be dealt with.”

By Michael G. Stogner

CarlosG.Bolanos

This might be a good time to get Restraining Orders for anyone who has stood up to or even asked a simple question of Carlos Bolanos.

He was asked about an e-mail that most of the elected officials in San Mateo County received on Saturday night.

Here is the content of that e-mail.

Subject: Carlos Bolanos and You
If you are receiving this email it is because you or a friend have endorsed a man who has either a) As a career lawman stood outside an obvious illegal brothel while his boss, the Sheriff of San Mateo County had sex with a probably minor sex-slave inside, or; b) Waited inside the brothel for his turn at the child sex-slaves while his boss was busy in one of the bedrooms.
There is no upside for you here. Add in the fact that it has now been alleged by an apparent SMCSO Deputy that Bolanos and Munks offered false IDs and were arrested and taken downtown before being bailed out by Gallagher, Kearnan and Sanchez and then add in the fact that the people who bailed them out appear to have been promoted ahead of grade and position up to the point of retirement as Assistant Sheriffs.
Carlos Bolanos is a toxic waste heap that is going to devour you if you remain supportive of him. Several smart local politicians have already pulled their endorsements of him. You must do the same or you risk deservedly and ignominiously going down with him in the fallout of your support for law enforcement officers who facilitated or solicited child-slaves in the service of their “needs.”
Dump Bolanos now. It is the only even remotely smart political choice you have. And announce it to the world when you do. Anything less and you risk being associated with Carols Bolanos forever.

“Take care of them after the election.” Does he mean like what he did to Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and the I.A. Investigation by Sqt, Jason Peardon. Or allowing a criminal investigation to continue and then submitted to the District Attorney’s Office with the recommendation for prosecution when he knew there was NO Evidence to support that of an elected official.

San Mateo County Elected Officials Ignore the average concerned citizen/resident. The residents are getting involved.

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

That has been going on as long as I can remember, They pretend to be interested while they listen to you during your 2-3 minute public comment. Most recent example was March 13, 2018 when concerned citizen Mark De Paula made a three minute presentation requesting all elected officials withdraw their endorsement of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. Mr. De Paula then communicated with all elected officials.

Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville stated he did watch Mr. De Paula’s presentation and said “It proves that Sheriff Greg Munks and Carlos Bolanos are Liars.’ “They were both Inside the house.”

Yesterday this e-mail was sent to most elected officials.

San Mateo County’s Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos finally answers questions, or does he?

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

 
CarlosG.Bolanos

The story promoted by Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos in April 2007 at a Press Conference where No Questions were allowed. They were briefly detained = handcuffed and released. It sounded like a Sportsman Fishing Show where they catch and release the little fish. If that were the truth, why would Carlos Bolanos refuse to answer any questions regarding the Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including children in the single family residence he was caught inside of, according to Las Vegas Metro Police Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes quotes in different news articles.

Now Candidate Carlos Bolanos has had 11 years to prepare for the residents to ask some questions that reporters have refused to ask. In Pacifica at Sharp Park Golf Course he was asked one question about Operation Dollhouse and he answered that this was not the proper place to discuss that subject or something close to that.

The Almanac Reporter Dave Boyce asked a question of Candidate Carlos Bolanos about Operation Dollhouse, and he refused to answer the question.

https://www.almanacnews.com/square/2018/03/29/deputy-looking-at-a-steep-climb-in-running-for-sheriff

Half Moon Bay Review Reporter Carina Woudenberg asked a question of Candidate Carlos Bolanos about Operation Dollhouse. Instead of answering the question he relies on the false story promoted by the Sheriff from 11 years ago. “I don’t know that there is much to say about nothing that happened 11 years ago.”

That is the third time Carlos Bolanos has refused to answer a simple question that the residents have a right to know the truth about that night of April 21, 2007.

Candidate for Sheriff 2018 Mark Melville said in that same article:

“He actually lied about where he was.” “They found him inside the house.”

We think that should have been the Headline of the HMBR article.

This post might shed light on why Carlos Bolanos refuses to answer any questions about April 21, 2007. It is on the HMBR.

Here is what you don’t know.

There were four people in the limo that Munks and Bolanos took to the brothel at 3474 Eldon Street. Two of those Deputies went from Sergeant to Assistant Sheriff in a span of just a few years before retiring out. Their pay went from ~$130,000 to $220,000 per year in that short span of time.

Why did that limo become the most effective promotion tool in the history of the SMCSO?

Because not only was Munks in the bedroom and Bolanos near the front door when the raid happened, after being placed in handcuffs they both provided a fake ID to the LVMPD. When LVMPD could not identify them they took them downtown to holding.

While that was happening the other two Deputies who escaped the raid and one other female Lieutenant went to the Mandalay Bay to get Munk’s and Bolanos’s real ID before going to the station to bail them out. (Yes, we (and they) know who they are, just not saying here…)

Presenting a false ID in Nevada is a Class E Felony. When Munks and Bolanos provided a false ID hoping they would be let go they broke the law. They committed a felony. They were taken downtown, unlike the others caught in the sting, because no one knew who they were and their ID came back zero.

Conspiring to conceal a crime is a crime in California. Even a crime in Nevada. A crime everywhere.

Now you know why those two deputies in the limo and the Lt. who went to bail out Munks and Bolanos rocketed through the leadership structure of the SO until they retired after being third in command.

It’s the crime and the cover-up that should make any of the four horsemen and Bolanos ineligible to be a Sheriff or Deputy. If the County was less corrupt this would have been properly handled ten years ago. Instead County leaders, Including the DA and Sup Horsley looked the other way. They had to have heard the rumors, even if they didn’t know the details.

It is past time to stop looking the other way.

Hey reporter’s!! Ask why they used forged ID and what they did after that. Ask who knew about the concealing of the use of fake IDs and the following trip to the holding tank. Ask Karen Hughes for the details!!

If you want proof of the promotion chain look at the employment history and compensation for recent Assistant Sheriff’s and work backwards.

And look at the top right now. One of the five (“The Dish”) is sitting there in plain view.

She knows everything.
