For the benefit of some of the readers of this blog – Yountville is a study in real corruption. Take notes.
You have a hotel – the Villagio that is used as a primary destination for Democrat Party Fundraisers. The owners of the Villagio have a vested interest in having only their own cronies on the local City Council.
Enter Robert Stryk.
Mike Thompson and Nancy Pelosi both live within 5 miles of Yountville – and they are freaked out over Robert Stryk running for Mayor.
As I have written before – they have paid two private investigators to try and turn up dirt on Stryk.
If Yountville was the size of Rocklin – their City staff would be over 500. Rocklin currently sits in the 250 range.
The Owners of the Villagio along with reporters from the Yountville Sun and the Napa Valley Register flew an employee of Stryk’s across the country thinking they would get some dirt of Stryk.
They got more than they bargained for.
The Napa Sentinel references documents that show people who are desperate to keep Stryk out of office and people who are trying with everything they have to prevent ordinary questions from being asked.
The bottom line – Stryk has uncovered a massive pay-to-play scheme that involves local officials and could possibly involve tax evasion by the villagio hotel.
No one has denied anything Mr. Stryk has implied or asserted – they are simply trying to shut him up.
