In case you have not heard – a Placer County Supervisoral staffer, Brian Jagger got arrested for embezzlement. Jagger was the campaign manager / treasurer for Scott Owens for DA.
I first heard of the story on Placer County Online. (PCO is a good local website that is devoid of the neurosis of Gold County Media)
Naturally – I figured since Jagger happens to be Kirk Uhler’s Chief of Staff that the left would try to smear Uhler.
I was not disappointed. Two stories on the Auburn Journal basically started with Kirk Uhler’s name in the first 25 words. Ironic, since it is Deric Rothe that was convicted of a felony (dealing Cocaine), not Uhler and at this point, not Brian Jagger.
What is interesting are the conspiracies that Canyon Rat (a DailyKos / MoveOn operative), Jack Sanchez, Zeke Tafoya and other Dem Central Committee types are promoting:
Since Kirk knew Jagger since he was a teenager – he must have known and excused Jagger’s behavior pattern.
They are all dutifuly promoting the erroneous and deliberately un-corrected Auburn Journal Story that said Uhler’s then company Solar Power Inc got the contract – when it was Solar Power Partners, Inc out of the Bay Area that got the contract. Since when did facts matter to the left or the convicted Cocaine Dealer Editor of the AJ?
Unlike the Solar contract which is a proven falsehood – Deric Rothe’s conviction for dealing drugs is a proven fact.
Kirk Uhler was notified by Tom Miller of the arrest – but the left alleges that Uhler tried to cover up Jagger’s actions and when Uhler and Owens could not cover it up anymore, only then did Owens go to the authorities.
These people run the Placer County Democrat Party.
Even dedicated Kirk Uhler hater Ken Campbell did not take the bait on this story – instead he nominated Jagger for a stupid criminal award. (of course, denying Jagger due process in the post)
This is another installment in why it sucks to be part of Placer County’s left – classless and dedicated to destroying people without merit.
P.S. On a personal note – I hope Jagger is not guilty of this, I really do. It would be a crushing fall for a man who is going through a really rough time in his life in other areas right now.
