The scuttlebutt on the street is Larios still can't read blueprints so he is shooting in the dark a lot. Same is true of another commissioner, but she adds value by knowing the market and why a developer might be given some latitude.

A few years back, maybe ten, a San Mateo County Sheriff was "fired" for partaking in some sort of prostitution "Sting."
Does anyone remember his name?
I do not not know if he and a deputy were guilty or not. I do not care either.
Thank you for any consideration.

Munks and Bolanos both were at the Las Vegas massage parlor operating out of a private home when it was raided as part of Operation Dollhouse in 2012. If I remember correctly, they claimed they had no reason to believe it wasn't a legitimate business (even though there was no name and no signage at the establishment). I believe all they were found guilty of was poor judgment -- and their only penalty profound embarrassment.

Oops -- got the year wrong! https://www.paloaltoonline.com/news/2007/04/24/sheriff-detained-in-las-vegas-brothel-raid

This article has a photo of the "establishment" -- yeah, this sure looks legit 😂

Just another sinner

Funny how no one actually reads the things Joe links to. Simon reminded everyone that "he was never arrested or detained by police." If his name was Weiner or Newsom or Lieu or Harris this would be buried 12 feet under. Newsom had an affair with his chief of staffs wife and went to rehab. Then had a 12 thousand dollar bar bill at the laundry. Had another affair last year that was buried in the blink of an eye. Maybe it all happened in Vegas.

Funny how people don't read the things Joe links too because they are behind a pay wall. And not everyone is savvy enough to read the story by going to the page's source code.

Thanks, HMB. That is my cue to suggest to everyone that they get a subscription to the Daily Journal. If they are coming to the Voice, they are interested in local affairs and the subscription is $60/year. That a bit over a buck a week!!!!

The second cue is to respectfully ask that we get sort of back on topic. My original premise was that the fundraising of any candidate and their racial make-up should not determine our next sheriff--or any other elected selection.

What is the perception of the sheriff's performance? I never hear anything like what I read down in San Jose (although I give that sheriff points for sticking to her guns). How is the unsolved crime rate in the unincorporated County? (Like Millbrae, LOL). How well is the jail being run? What other criteria are important?

OK?
