In some ways the Andrew Lamberto scandal died down today but not by much. What we lacked in quantity was made up for in quality. Four newspapers and KFI continued with their coverage on the scandal.
The best of the best today came from Lauren Leichliter, president of SEBA, the union representing the San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies. If you don’t read any other, read this one. It covers a lot of points other publications missed. It was printed in the Highland Community News.
Cassie MacDuff came through as well. She actually spoke with San Bernardino County CEO Greg Devereaux. Her pieces are always intelligent and well written but she seems to have lost that fire in her gut she once had. In a bygone era, she would have called for the termination of both Lamberto and Devereaux. She did not today. But at least she used an appropriate photo! Here is her column.
Shea Johnson redeemed himself tonight in my book. He interviewed two candidates for the First District, Rick Roelle and Bill Holland. Both weighed in on Lamberto scandal. They both called for Devereaux’s firing. And, the Daily Press finally admitted who broke this story. Thanks for the plug. Here is his story.
Finally, the Los Angeles Times got into the act. There is not anything new in its story but it is important simply by virtue of the fact it is the Los Angeles Times. Here is the link.
KFI continued with its coverage both as a news item and on the Bill Handel Show. I cannot verify if this link works, but here is what I sent for a clip.
And finally, Jim has another story on his blog.
Someone sent this to me. It’s what you get when Google Lamberto’s personal email address.
Update: I found one more story. I guess Mark Gutglueck couldn’t wait until his next edition. I don’t blame him. Here is the link to his story.
I found yet another. This one is pretty funny. It is over on CactusThorns.
