I saw your response to someone else that you are not a paid consultant to anyone involved in the Colonies scandal. Okay, I believe you. But that leaves a ton of other possibilities. Are you an employee of anyone involved in the Colonies scandal? Are you a subcontractor for anyone who is a consultant or employee of anyone involved in the Colonies scandal? Is your firm, if incorporated, the actual consultant, subconsultant or employee? Are you paying back debt from the $300,000 the Colonies partners spent on your election campaign? Are you a volunteer in a capacity for anyone involved in the Colonies scandal? And there are a gazillion other possibilities.
Why do I doubt your sincerity in all of this? Well, I can’t answer that except to say that San Bernardino County may be the largest county in the contiguous United States, but when it comes to certain things, we are still a Mayberry. Word travels fast and your actions and deeds say otherwise.
Then when you tie in what happened with Gutglueck’s paper along with the fact that the paper was used to promote your re-election (and Grover Merritt’s too if I remember correctly), something is fishy. We can also add to that Lou Desmond, who you work(ed) for as well and who seems to be in the back pocket of the Colonies defendants. Then there is Steve Lambert. And the list just keeps growing.
Of course, to all of that we can add all of threats and intimidation that continues to go on over on the other blog. And it is all one big cluster. I ask again, if they are all so innocent, why do they have to stoop to these methods to try to influence the potential jury pool?
If your account of being able to discuss what happened in closed session is correct, you’ve had a long time to discuss it. Why now? I think that answer is obvious.
