It is not just on the hard right where I experience people drinking their own Kool-Aid. Gavin Newsom has a text message system where he loaded in the voter database and he has volunteers sending out semi-customized form texts all over the state.

Newsom is attempting to turn around the Trump endorsement of Cox. It is my opinion that they are bugging Republicans in an attempt to boost Cox in to the top two, similar to attacking Mr. Cox for being a “Conservative Businessman”, Pro-NRA and Pro-Trump. Meantime, Antonio Villiariagosa and his lackeys in the Charter School Association are savaging John Cox in the misguided notion that attacking Cox will drive GOP voters to Antonio.

Newsom should train his staff better, unless they were seeking out the responses they are getting.

What a mess the jungle primary is.

These text messages are, however priceless.

Sheriff Stan Sniff has no platform from which to make any judgments about the County Budget. Let’s start in order of what we’ve chronicled about Stan Sniff and the County Budget:

We warned about the FY 2018 fiscal disaster coming on 11/15/2017.

We did an expose’ on a $104,000 (now over $120K a year) position dedicated to Legislative Affairs. That job is currently held by the wife of Jason Gore, a central figure in the cheating scandal, who is also high on the list to be “Friend of Stan” promoted to Sergeant.  Mrs. Gore and another county employee known as Eggplant Yvonne haul down a cool $250K between them (in total compensation). Both are reputed to be actively engaged in campaign related activity during business hours.

In 2011, Stan Sniff threatened mass layoffs and empty jail space to try and gain leverage in a county budget negotiation.

In 2016 Stan Sniff raked in $335K in total compensation!

In 2015, the overtime problem and the resulting budget issues came to light.

ON 2/8/2018 – we introduced you to the infamous Leonard Purvis and the machinations of Stan Sniff to sabotage the KPMG Audit.

Stan Sniff: I will leave the new jail empty. That’s right, he said it.

Even after getting another $18 Million from the County for the Department, Sniff Could not stop whining.

The consequences of Stan Sniff’s Jail Decisions, Empty Space, Fed Kicks and Sexual Harassment Lawsuits.

Even back in 2009, Sniff was getting blasted for things like $52-$60 an hour part time jobs that were costing Hundreds of Thousands out of the budget.

We learned that Rancho Mirage got affected negatively by decisions made allegedly related the the budget excuse.

Frank Drone Boy Taylor and overpriced drones, with cost overruns and undisclosed conflicts of interest? 

And there is this:

3039 total offenders*

375 in current violation*

*California Department of Justice – Megan’s Law Database, December 2017

Sheriff Stan Sniff is unaware of the location of at least 375 court-certified sex offenders.

More than 12% of all the registered sex offenders in Riverside County have gone missing and the sheriff has failed to correct this embarrassing threat to our children and wives.

To put this into perspective, even Hemet, the crime violent crime Capitol of Riverside County has only lost track of 4% of their registered sex offenders.

Sniff has lost track of sex offenders at a rate three times that of Hemet.

Crime remains at unacceptable levels throughout Riverside County even as the Sheriff plays politics with Jail Staffing and staffing levels at key county sheriff stations.

Stan Sniff can not look at anyone and claim fiscal responsibility. The myriad scandals, many that relate to milking pay and misappropriating County Resources will be detailed again in future posts. Suffice to say, the scandals add an exclamation point to the disaster that has beset the Riverside Sheriff’s Office under Stan Sniff’s leadership.

Sheriff Sniff continually blames others for his inability to effectively manage and lead the Sheriffs Department while failing to keep Riverside County residents safe. Meantime, the Sheriff Sniff department is overrun with corruption and cover-ups. What else are we going to find out about Stan Sniff’s department?

Remember, as always we will talk to anyone with information and you can remain anonymous.

Remember when we told you about the county’s maintenance contracts and vehicle lease arrangements? These have been in place for a while, which adds to the absurdity of the following article. Remember, also the run-and-gun battle between Stan Sniff and the Board of Supervisors who he has attacked incessantly over the years about his budget. Then you see things like this 5-0 vote on some stupid spending requested by Stan Sniff and start wondering if Stan Sniff suffers from schizophrenia in addition to being a garden variety Tyrant.

Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff today received the Board of Supervisors’ OK to make a $2 million purchase of vehicles and equipment slated for use by deputies who work in the court system.

The board without comment voted 5-0 to authorize the sheriff to draw budgeted funds from an internal account in order to acquire 36 vehicles, as well as radio gear and other hardware. In documents posted to the board’s policy agenda, sheriff’s officials said the court services fleet is in need of replacement and upgrades.

The board-approved purchase will enable the sheriff’s department to procure 28 Ford Interceptors, five Ford Expeditions, two Chevrolet Tahoes and one Toyota Camry hybrid.

The Camry retails for just under $30,000. However, most of the other vehicles average between $58,000 and $60,000 each after modifications.

Thirty vehicles will serve as standard black-and-whites, but five of the vehicles will be designated for “stealth” operations, sheriff’s officials said, without elaborating.

Court services deputies sometimes take part in undercover stings in which they stake out courthouses and wait for known unlicensed motorists or those with suspended licenses to leave hearings and attempt to drive away — only to be arrested for violating their probation.

Deputies assigned to the sheriff’s civil division are also responsible for serving bench warrants and other writs.

Some of the existing court division vehicles have not reached half the county’s 115,000-mile replacement standard, so those vehicles will be transferred to patrol stations for use after the new units arrive.

The $2.09 million purchase will include acquisition of gear to network each vehicle into the county’s Public Safety Enterprise Communication System, as well as equipment to directly  facilitate “civil process operations,” documents stated.

All the funds will be drawn from the Sheriff’s Write Assessment account. Every time a deputy serves a court order in a civil matter, the sheriff’s department collects a $12 fee, officials said.

We’ve written at length about the consequences of Stan Sniff’s fiscal bungling, so we are asking the obvious question – why are they incurring more leases of $500-$850 a month each to the county, more $60 a car parking fees, more $125 Oil Changes, $500 brake jobs and the like when criminals are being “Fed-Kicked” every day because Sniff refuses to staff the jails?

Yet, here we are buying equipment to be used to track unlicensed motorists and people with expired tags when drug dealers are released regularly 24 hours after arrest.

Then there is this:

The Board of Supervisors today approved Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff’s request to purchase an armored truck for SWAT operations at a cost of just under $300,000.

The Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck — BEARCAT — is needed to supplement the sheriff’s current fleet of three armored vehicles, according to Undersheriff Bill DiYorio.

“This is becoming standard equipment with SWAT units,” he told the board. “We use these vehicles because of the types of individuals we’re encountering.”

The customized BEARCAT will be procured from Pittsfield, Massachusetts-based Lenco Armor without seeking competitive bids from any other entity. Officials said Lenco is premier in the industry.

(Blogger’s Note – sounds like the overpriced drones or Bob Epp’s choice of Bomb Squad Equipment, doesn’t it?)

“Lenco’s passive multi-hit armor system provides ballistic protection and is built with military specifications,” according to documents posted to the board’s policy agenda. “With the use of the Lenco BEARCAT, law enforcement officers, crisis negotiators and tactical medics can safely roll face-to-face with an active shooter or barricaded gunman. In the past, negotiators and medics remained outside the ‘hot zone,’ several blocks away.”

The four-wheel drive armored truck features a camera system to cover all angles surrounding the vehicle, a topside turret system, bullet-proof windows, an intercom for use in and out of the vehicle and a 6.7-liter, turbo-charged engine.

The armor plating is the same used on military and U.S. State Department vehicles.

Officials said that in the last 18 months, the sheriff’s current armored vehicle fleet has been taken out of service 27 times because of maintenance and repairs, leaving tactical units with no means of heavy-duty transportation.

The new BEARCAT will help fill the gap, DiYorio said. “We have to have a reliable piece of equipment,” he said.

The total cost, with modifications, will come to $299,917, covered by asset forfeiture funds already in the sheriff’s budget.

The sheriff’s SWAT personnel are centrally located in Banning for deployment to all corners of the county, according to DiYorio.

Take careful note of the above – with their current fleet in disrepair because Sniff is not smart enough or engaged enough to recognize the broken system for maintaining vehicles, the solution is to buy another vehicle.

I also take note that Leonard “Lenny” Purvis also bought something like this when he was running the Banning PD in to the ground. It sure seems there is something in the DNA of Team Sniff.

Is it just me or does it seem felony stupid to buy more equipment when you can’t or won’t maintain what you have?

Is it just me or does it seem felony stupid to enforce traffic stuff when felons are getting released from jail before and after conviction due to budget issues?

Is it just me or does it seem felonious as in the stuff we’ve uncovered about the abuses of budget, time cards, cheating, maintenance and budgeting? Doesn’t it seem like yet another coverup with regard to the war between Sniff and the Board of Supervisors (in particular the war against the KPMG Audit of Sniff’s department)?

It seems to your intrepid blogger that just the dozen or so documented examples of fraud and waste, if remedied would free up millions.

Yet the latest reason to fire Stan Sniff.

The amount of mental gymnastics that is required to stay on the Travis Allen train is astounding.

Travis Allen has had 11 Traffic Convictions in 8 years. According to things I have seen but don’t have copies of the total may be as high as 19 tickets when you add the 5-7 more he has gotten in the last 6 years. Even 11 traffic tickets is 3 lifetimes for most people.

His corporation was suspended because he did not pay his bill, no big deal they say.

He had two tax liens because he did not pay his bills (One for a two year old income tax bill and the other on his boat).

He has two verified sexual harassment claims (and is rumored to have several more)

He donated to Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom, Barbara Boxer and others

He has missed over 500 votes in the legislature including the lead ammo ban, illegal alien driver’s license and a host of others.

Several stories in the media have documented his absentee record. Conversations I have had with capitol insiders are even more detailed as they knew most of the time Travis Allen was skipping work to Surf. Two media stories we uncovered detailed 36 absences in 2015 and missing 25% of the committee votes in 2016.

He lost a civil lawsuit because of his driving habits ($10,500)

He got an administrative fine for sloppy business practices ($8,000) amongst three complaints in total.

What does team Travis say? Oh those dem donations were meal tickets. Those fines, they don’t mean nothin! They were years ago… yet they care about John Cox being a democrat in the 1970’s.

Being absent? That ain’t nuthin!

Sexual Harassment, oh that was BS, it was a dem plot. Nothing happened, playing footsies and putting your hand on someone’s shoulder ain’t nuthin!

Tax Liens in 2017? It ain’t nuthin, nuthin, nuthin… he paid them!

Tons of Traffic Tickets? Who cares they say!

Before Travis Ran for Assembly in 2012, he missed voting in half the preceding elections dating back to 2004.

Who relates to one person having all of this baggage? Anyone? Who relates to the mentality that defends this as it relates to someone wanting to be governor of the largest state in the union?

Then there is this gem from a Team Travis conference call I was on, Friday 5/18/2018… Think this through, Travis Allen said the future speaker of the House got bought off and then he tricked the President of the United States in to Endorsing John Cox. This is insane. I am not the only person that heard this, others were on the conference call as well.

Given the out of control personal behavior of Travis Allen, it is no surprise to see the emotional and spiritual manipulation he is exerting – with toxic results – as he even invoked the story of Gideon from the Old Testament to reassure his troops in that conference call post Trump endorsement of John Cox.

Many of Travis Allen’s supporters are raging on President Trump now.

Here is a sampling of yet more of the behavior of Team Travis:

On the heels of our announcement of 800,000 hits since 1/1/2018, we were made aware of some misinformation. Allow your intrepid blogger to set the record straight. I am re-posting something I put on the RightonDaily Facebook Page:

Please note that there have been efforts to suppress the flow of information to RightonDaily by the second floor. These include searching the office computers of RSO Employees, setting up anonymous facebook pages to spread disinformation and of course claims that I tape all phone calls. Please note that taping a call without someone’s consent is illegal. There have also been several attempts to plant blatantly false information with your intrepid blogger as well. Since no one edits my page but me, the opinions and facts presented on the RightonDaily Blog are mine. AND – when I say you can remain confidential, it means just that. #FREERIVERSIDE #FIRESNIFF#COXFORGOVERNOR #COLEHARRISFORLG Rock On.

There have been a variety of things going on behind the scenes, some of which I have written about (Including their attempts to attack my wife, calling her employer, several attempts to hack this site, trying to attack my insurance business and the like).

It is apparent that Team Sniff is running low on options to try and stop the bleeding. It is our mission here at RightonDaily to provide him and his crew political proctology. Remember, you can remain anonymous.
