Thanks to some extremely bizarre legislation in California, you can self identify as anything these days. It does indeed appear that my friends within the Riverside GOP have failed to do their due diligence on the Sheriff who is self-identifying as a Republican.

Mr. Sniff appears to be all over the board on a variety of issues. When doing research on the Sheriff, I learned that he appointed an LBGT Liaison Officer. I wonder if this was widely advertised?

It was buried in a retirement announcement for the assistant sheriff. (Click the picture of the officer to enlarge the text)

Whether or not gay rights is your issue, the point here is one of priorities. The Good Sheriff has a bizarre set of them. A brand new jail has been languishing for quite a while due to “budget cuts”, yet we have an LGBT liaison officer. I’d assume to deal with the after affects of felons allowed to go free who assault them?

As I’ve been looking in to the Sheriff, I’ve identified a slew of things that are causing me to question everything everyone thinks they knew about him.

Let’s start at a basic question, Is Stan Sniff a Republican?

He is deign to give out CCW Permits, this is a proven fact we will discuss later, he has also given short shift to jails and corrections, another fact we will discuss later. Guns and Law / Order are two pillars of even the most moderate Republican’s platform.

It gets better – in the competitive State Senate District 31 in the middle of Riverside County, tax-raising left-wing “General” Richard Roth can count of Sheriff sniff to endorse and help re-elect him. Richard Roth voted to jack up your vehicle registrations, jacked up your gas taxes twice and helped usher in Cap and Trade which will light up the sky with your energy bills. Cap and Trade is the reason why Riverside County “Republican” Chad Mayes became public enemy number one and is expected to be in the fight of his life for re-election. So why not Stan Sniff? Sniff endorsed Roth in September of 2015, some 10 months before election day, in an effort to discourage any viable Republican from running against Roth, while in the same area Republican Assemblymember Eric Linder was ousted from office.

Sniff called Richard Roth a “True Champion for Public Safety”, yet Roth supported Prop 47 and Prop 57, get out of jail free cards for habitual career criminals. Under those propositions, you can visit the local markets and steal up to $950 worth of stuff and get an infraction. You can then do it repeatedly as those crimes do not pile up. Roth also supported making transmitting HIV a misdemeanor.

Lest you think Stan Sniff’s democrat tendencies are limited to the above, the good sheriff also added another disaster to his endorsement quiver. In 2012, he endorsed leftist democrat Cheryl Brown. Ms. Brown has been like Richard Roth on acid. Brown is so far out there that she has supported legislation so bad that even Governor Moonbean has vetoed it.

It is fair to say that Sheriff Sniff has no clear core convictions. It is also fair to say that Sheriff Sniff aided and abetted the largest tax increases, fee increases and regulatory increases in state history, in addition to the disasters known as Prop 47 and 57.

Does the Sheriff believe that the leftist Social Justice Warriors will come to his aid now that his tenure is seriously threatened? We are seeing an emerging pattern with Sheriff Sniff… stay tuned for more.

Sheriff Stan Sniff has had a history of fighting with his cops. Sheriff Stan Sniff has had a history of fighting with the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, blaming all of them for every bad decision he has made. At the same time, Sheriff Stan Sniff is providing no leadership for the deputies he still has on the beat.

On the 8th of July, a couple of Riverside Sheriff’s Department Officers responded to a DUI. Here is a link to a quick hit in the local paper.

The officers on the scene did the following:

Unfortunately, Sheriff Sniff will not be able to delete this from the internet as he has with other items that were controversial.

This picture of Sargent Robert Garcia and Community Service Officer Stephanie Perez was actually on Perez’ social media account.

In the three month’s since, there has been nothing out of the Sheriff’s office about this.

Six Firefighters are working on the wrecked car and this is the contribution from Mr. Sniff’s troops?

Maybe the Sheriff needs to take a break from going to the rotary club dinner, the women’s luncheon, the chamber of commerce crab feed and his regularly scheduled bashing of county board of supervisors to actually attempt to enforce some discipline?

It is a fair question to ask.

Everyone is looking for reasons why the CAGOP is losing market share. There are a ton of them beyond the recent foibles of the legislature to look at.

Riverside County, once a county with 44% GOP Registration is now plurality democrat. In a search for answers beyond Chad Mayes, I went looking through the ranks of GOP leaders in Riverside County, and stumbled upon one of Riverside’s most “beloved” Republican Officeholders – Stan Sniff.

On the surface, Sniff looks like the prototypical GOP Sheriff. Once you take a closer look, you will agree with me that Stan Sniff needs to be retired.

I am told by GOP friends in Riverside County that Sniff is popular. I’d contest that for a variety of reasons, but there is one group Sniff is indeed popular with, the ACLU. The ACLU loved Sniff’s ieda of scapegoating the Riverside Sheriff’s Deputies with an extreme plan of implementation for body cameras. It appears that our Sheriff turned politician was trying to score points with social justice warriors.

Perhaps this desire to reinvent himself as a social justice warrior informs us as to why Sniff endorses democrats and tax increases in Riverside County, yet I am told he is popular. I will bet that Chad Mayes believed in his own popularity in Riverside County as well before he collided face-first with the reality of the desires of his constituents. I believe that once informed, the voters of Riverside County will help Stan Sniff have a similar collision.

It is my goal to inform as many people as possible about Stan Sniff based on the facts about a variety of issues as my investigation is turning up a non-stop cavalcade of disaster.

You can not simply declare war on your men and expect no consequences. For those of you on the right fixated on the “Sheriff’s Union”, allow me to give you a concrete, real world example – my Mother served 6 years on the local High School Board before resigning to move to Nevada. She is probably to the right of me, yet was proudly endorsed by the teacher’s union without compromising who she was. She was involved in a long contract negotiation where the Union got a fraction of what they wanted, but everyone left friends and on amicable terms. This is what leaders do, they tell people the way things are without insulting them or turning them in to permanent enemies.

Sniff apparently missed the memo on how to negotiate. He also appears to have cared more about his own office and massive compensation package ($330K+ a year in total stuff) then attempting to focus on staffing levels, trying to eliminate furloughs or resolve long term contracting issues.

Stan Sniff could have done a variety of things to try to mitigate some of the effects of the democrats obsession with undermining criminal penalties and incarceration, he did not.

It appeared instead that the Sheriff was content to refuse to cooperate with ICE, overseeing releases of hardened criminals by the thousands in excess of the already mandated releases, slow rolled the opening and staffing of the new jail, spending money on a variety of things not related to incarceration or enforcement of the law and of course a pathetically slow number of CCW permits being issued while Crime has been escalating by double digits in recent years.

Stan Sniff has not faced a sustained, funded and serious challenge to his failed leadership. Perhaps in 2014, he had a stronger platform to run on. 2018 is not 2014. Incumbents are on the line and the unwashed masses are awake and understand their government has failed them. Stan Sniff is about to experience this dynamic full force.
