Sorry about that Ryan. I never even looked. I knew Joe got the tip and thought he wrote the story.
What that means quite bluntly is that Lamberto cannot now be fired now that his crime is out in the open. That would be double jeopardy. Lamberto gets to keep his job and Devereaux gets to keep his hatchet man. And no, Devereaux did not tell the Board of Supervisors about this.
Board members can plead ignorance, righteous indignation, shock, whatever they want. It is all meaningless bull shit because there is not a damn thing that can be done about Lamberto and they know it.
Everyone wins except for the public and the employees. We are all stuck with someone running Human Resources who has been convicted of a crime of moral turpitude making a few hundred thousand dollars a year in salary and benefits so he can buy all the prostitutes he sees fit. Where else but San Bernardino Couny?
And some of you don’t believe me when I write that Devereaux is a brilliant and devious man. Does anyone really believe San Bernardino County is any more “transparent” than it was ten years ago? Or any less corrupt?
BTW, for those new to the blog, if you Tweet, the hashtag for the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is #milkduds.
