The source of this letter asked for anonymity due to their fears of being retaliated against similar to Chad Bianco. It is clear in the rank and file that unless you are on bended knee in front of the Sheriff, you are wearing a target.

Over the past two-decades social media has changed the way we communicate with one another.  The various communication platforms, such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook continue to be used not only by citizens, but law enforcement agencies throughout the nation, including the Sheriff’s Department.  Social media can have both a positive and negative influence on one’s career.   Specifically, Facebook affords a way for people to communicate with friends, co-workers and family. Facebook is used by our Department to inform the communities we serve on crime prevention programs, significant arrests and community events.

Caution, the Sheriff Department has made it clear there should be no nexus on an employee’s personal Facebook account and the Department.  A profile photograph of you in uniform or listing the Sheriff’s Department as your employer creates that nexus.  Thus, from Administration’s perspective any perceived negative, or criticizing comment posted on your personal Facebook account could be viewed as a violation of General Orders.  Therefore, you could be subject to a personnel investigation and potentially disciplined.

The Department is without a doubt monitoring many of our employees Facebook accounts for such a nexus.  I arrived at this conclusion based on a number of co-workers describing how a supervisor admonished them about a criticizing post or an election related comment.  Also, sergeants, lieutenants and the captain warned us to delete any reference to being employed by the Department on Facebook at numerous briefings.

Based on comments by peers and their counseling experience, it my opinion that Department resources are being inappropriately used to monitor personal Facebook accounts with to goal of identifying employees who post criticizing comments about the Department, or expressed support for Lt. Chad Bianco.The reality is we are in an election cycle and I have opined the monitoring of personal Facebook accounts appears to be for the sole purpose of identifying Lt. Chad Bianco supporters and intimidating them. If you were on the Department four years ago, then you might recall the perceived retaliation after the election cycle, such as unwanted transfers and hopefully understand what I am talking about. 

To avoid a negative experience for exercising your right to free speech afforded under the Constitution of the United States, remove any nexus identifying your employer.  Replace your photograph with one where you are not wearing a uniform.  List your occupation as, “Law Enforcement,” “Peace Officer” or “Public Servant.” Do not use Riverside County on any posts. Set your settings to private to allow only family and friends to read your honest posts without fear of retaliation.  Do not post comments from a county computer or while on-duty.  Take the necessary steps to protect yourself, protect your rights and don’t be subject to any form of intimidation.

Chad Bianco challenged Stan Sniff in 2014 and has been on the receiving end of retaliation ever since. Others that supported Bianco then have also had their careers affected. There is more to this series coming. If you have been retaliated against by this Sheriff, we want to hear from you. Comments are moderated and do not display publicly – let us know what happened to you, you can remain anonymous and we will delete the comment rather than display it. We are also on Facebook and you can message us there as well.

Since we’ve taken on the cause of defeating Sheriff Sniff, it has taken on a life of its’ own. Hardened Police Officers / Deputies have been coming forward to tell their stories. They are emotionally disturbing, it is unnerving as a private citizen 25 years removed from Military service to hear and see the palpable fear in the deputies. These people see blood, gore and the absolute worst in society and, yet they are mortally afraid of Sheriff Sniff.

Sniff is aided and abetted by a series of Captains and Lieutenants who have compromised their personal integrity for a paycheck so they can retire with maximum benefits. (Not all of the Riverside Sheriff Office management personnel are like this, but it appears most are) The deputies have to tip toe around them all to avoid retribution.

Worse, when there are chances to show even minimal levels of leadership, we are all met with failure, which compounded with the psychological environment created by the Sheriff is a devastating legacy of abject failure.

This brings me to the latest outrage. By now, you’ve heard about the horrific case of two psychos that chained their 12 children ages 2-29 to a bed and were starving them to death.

I received a tip that sheriff sniff was MIA when this story broke as national news. In fact, a check of local media reveals no pictures or videos of the attention-starved sheriff at any of the initial or follow up media events surrounding this case. This is a video of the actual press conference at 10AM featuring the Captain of the Perris Station.

Where was Sheriff Sniff for this breaking news story?

He was at a Republican Woman’s meeting at a winery.

That’s correct, the embattled sheriff was out campaigning.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a mystery groupie.

She is in the foreground of this photo.

Our expose’ on Sheriff Stan Sniff has focused on his traditionally poor choices and bad judgement. Our concerns are quite simple.

As it pertains to the mystery woman who has multiple photos of the Sheriff on her facebook page, who is she, why is she so close to the sheriff when his wife is usually separated by a significant space in photos?

What is the nature of their relationship?

Another character is in this photo. His name is Ali Mazarei. Mohammad Ali Mazarei (his new legal name as of a few years ago) is a member of the Riverside County Republican Central Committee. I wonder if his fellow Riverside GOP Committee-members know he is under a license revocation and potential felony investigation for fraud.

I see Mazarei on facebook, a lot. Ali Mazarei is a local political activist who wants to be at the cool kids table in Riverside County.

Mazarei owns an AM/PM franchise with a Travel Plaza and auto repair. (He also owns several other businesses)

Mazarei ended up on my radar screen after I was sent the following meme by one of his “fans”:

Why would someone make such a meme about Ali Mazarei?

The other allegation we are leveling here is that Mazarei received special treatment for a CCW Permit in Riverside County. Did he have to wait two+ years like most people? We’ve been told that his financial largess moved him to the front of the line.

Mazarei is also known for posing for photos with a variety of weapons. Some of his photos look downright scary.

So here we have a nexus of two very mystery Stan Sniff supporters.

But wait, there is more.

Mazarei has written Stan Sniff checks totaling $40,500. (Not) coincidentally, he is one of the just over 2000 CCW permit holders in Riverside County. (A county of 2.4 Million people)

Does Sniff know that Mazarei has a checkered business record? Are there more issues out there?

Ali Mazaeri is named in the document and his business is accused in this complaint filed by The California Bureau of Automotive Repair (featuring Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s letterhead) of Dishonesty, Fraud and Deceit. If you read the complaint, you will see that Mr. Mazarei got stung for making bogus smog checks. (They reference 15(!) instances) We were sent photos of his shop recently that indicate that the auto repair garage parts are shut down. It is clear that Xavier Becerra may take a break from filing frivolous lawsuits to nail a wanna-be Republican kingmaker to the wall.

If you take the time to read the complaint, he (Mazarei) got caught lying multiple times over the course of several days – again 15 references to rigged smog checks in the complaint.

When one is running for a top law enforcement position, fraud complaints / prosecutions against top donors become an issue in your campaign.

So, the Sheriff has a public problem as a major donor of $40,500 who has had events for him at his house, is subject to administrative action for 15 instances of Smog Check Fraud, has a suspended license and may well be subject to a felony prosecution. 

So now we have Ali Mazarei in the middle of serious legal trouble, chummy with the Sheriff, cigar in hand with the mystery woman in the photo. What a team the Sheriff has assembled!

Let’s add a few more photos (beyond the five in the first post about the mystery woman) to the mix.

Ask yourself – is this the look of friends? Is this what you’d expect from a candidate and a donor? A candidate and a volunteer? Or does this look like an indicator of a physical relationship? If this is “OK” then ask yourself about the judgement of the Sheriff in this toxic environment of sexual harassment claims for far less, If I was in office, I’d have photos like these with my wife only. Any photo with another woman would look different.

It sure makes you wonder what is going on down in Riverside County with the Sheriff.

If anyone reading has any information about the nature of the relationship of the sheriff and the mystery woman, please reach out to us as you can remain anonymous. Please be prepared to provide documentation, photos and/or videos to back up anything you share.

If anyone has any information about the Ali Mazarei CCW permit caper including info on how fast it was issued, please reach out to us as you can remain anonymous. Given that Mazarei is in serious legal trouble, the overriding issues here become a direct impact on the re-election of Sheriff Sniff. Given that Sheriff Sniff is in a near panic over his fading re-election chances, we 100% understand the need to protect people from retaliation.

Embedded in this post, you can see here a graphic of all the donations between Mazarei and Sniff. It is clear they are close politically.

Ask some obvious questions here, what does it look like regarding Mr. Mazarei’s CCW Permit? Does it look ethical? Moral? Appropriate?

Will Stan Sniff return the dirty money from Ali Mazarei? How does a sitting Sheriff look anyone in the eye knowing that a top 5 donor of his is a fraudster? If Sheriff Sniff has any integrity, he will return the $40,500 to Ali Mazarei immediately

What does the Riverside GOP do, knowing that an elected member is being rung up for fraud after being implicated in a sting by the California B.A.R.?

P.S. Given that Mazarei is under civil/legal action related to dishonest and fraudulent auto repair operations, I wonder if ICE is going to raid his AM/PM like they did 7-11? Just asking as you can’t donate to ICE like you can a sheriff…

When you are out of creative ideas and your ego is personally bruised, you send emails demanding your opponent drop out of the race. When you have excellent ideas, energy and resources, you respond with stuff like this.

Travis Allen will probably be better served going back to blocking people on social media.

Worse, he may need to tell his crew that the illuminati did not make up my screenshot of being blocked. (It is going to be an entertaining 5 months for sure…)

Now back to the order of the day:

(The issue is – what happened to the money…)

Request for Autopsy Report

Office of the Political Coroner 

January 14, 2018

To whom it may concern,

On January 8, 2018, the Join Travis Allen to Repeal the Gas Tax Ballot Measure Committee passed away of lethal lack of momentum in Huntington Beach, California as noted in the obituary published two days ago.

At yesterday’s USC gubernatorial debate, Travis Allen remarkably criticized Mr. John Cox for contributing $250,000 into the real effort to repeal the gas tax, while Travis Allen only siphoned $87,188 out of donors and didn’t submit a single signature by the January 8, 2018 deadline.

The purpose of this letter is to formally request the official autopsy report. As you know, these reports are essential in the completion of a thorough and accurate cause of death investigation and confirm there was no foul play.

In comments to the The San Jose Mercury News, Travis Allen promised to give the money collected to the real campaign led by a coalition including John Cox, Carl DeMaio and several others. While the chance of that occurring may be zero, voters request to know how Travis Allen spent that money, how much is left, how many signatures were ever collected and when it will be transferred to the successful effort to repeal the gas tax.

Just nine days before Travis Allen failed to submit a single signature he sent out the following  misleading fundraising email:


Voters deserve to know the truth and donors deserve to know what Travis Allen did with their money.

Travis Allen has had a bad week. His garbage Gas Tax initiative failed to even return a single signature.

In a face-saving move, Mr. Allen has attempted to indicate that he is “Joining” the Carl DiMaio / Howard Jarvis effort to overturn the Gas Tax.

While Travis is claiming to have “Won” the USC Debate on Saturday, the truth is he was booed more frequently than a bad act at the $1.98 beauty show.

Travis Allen got owned bad and since then has been on tilt using democrat talking points to attack John Cox. Just how bad did Travis Allen get owned?

. goes after other Republican in the CA Governor race “I want to give my young and immature compatriot a little lesson here.”

Man, it sucks to be Travis Allen. Daddy took him out behind the woodshed.

Not to be outdone, the John Cox campaign has trolled the youngster (who wears Jeans and no Tie when all others are in a suit for a debate) with an epic campaign email:

Obituary
The Join Travis Allen to Repeal the Gas Tax Ballot MeasureCommittee passed away quietly in its sleep at 11:59 p.m. on January 8, 2018 after submitting zeroof the required 365,880 signatures.

Born on May 4, 2017, the “effort” was primarily used to justify Assemblyman Travis Allen’s smoke-and-mirrors campaign for Governor. It will be best remembered for deceptively collecting $87,188 from innocent, well-intended donors that just wanted a more affordable California, but Travis Allen just made it cost more of their hard-earned money.

Its passing generated the attention of news outlets throughout California.

The Sacramento Bee:Gas tax repeal appears headed for failure – but voters may get another shot
The San Jose Mercury News:Gas tax repeal sponsored by Assemblyman Travis Allen fails to qualify, but another effort could reach the ballot
The Los Angeles Times:Assemblyman Travis Allen fails to qualify initiative to repeal gas tax, will support campaign for similar measure

Travis Allen’s “effort” is survived by the Stop The Car Tax initiative, which is chaired by John Cox and supported by Carl Demaio, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and most members of the California Republican Congressional Delegation. The legitimate effort chaired by John Cox has already collected over 400,000 signatures and has until May 21, 2018 to submit the minimum 585,000.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to StopTheCarTax.org if you want to contribute to a real effort to repeal California’s regressive gas and car tax.

Carl DiMaio got in to the act, excoriating the Sacramento Bee – and highlighting how Allen’s self-serving effort hurt all Californians. While Allen was siphoning off much-needed resources from the real effort to overturn the Gas Tax (and volunteers), his duplicate and competing effort was causing confusion. DiMaio did not mince words for Travis Allen either:

Aaron-

I have heard from some of our supporters that they are disturbed about a very confusing story in the Sacramento Bee today with a grossly-flawed headline “Gas Tax Repeal Initiative Fails.” THIS HEADLINE IS DEAD WRONG. The SacBee supports the gas tax hike, and we believe they ran an intentionally misleading headline to dupe voters into not returning the signatures they may still have.   

If you read the story, you realize that they are not even talking about our Gas Tax Repeal Initiative. The story is all about Travis Allen’s fake gas tax petition and how he failed to submit even a single signature for his effort. Let me be clear: Travis Allen’s failed effort has had nothing to do with our broad-based coalition.

The REAL Gas Tax Repeal Initiative has collected over 400k signatures in record time, and we are well on our way to the 584k signatures we need! We are collecting signatures at a record-breaking pace.

Please continue to do the AMAZING work you are doing to get and return signatures on this petition. Even as the article concedes, we are well on our way to winning this thing!

Help us SUCCEED with qualifying and passing the REAL Gas Tax Repeal Initiative by contributing today

Reform California – Gas Tax Repeal Initiative

But wait – there’s more! Travis Allen’s crew created a page to highlight all their trolls that had been blocked off of John Cox social media. Embedded in this post, you will see that Mr. Allen’s glass jaw got the best of him 5 months before election day and I was blocked. If Travis Allen can’t handle Aaron F Park, how can he handle governing California? Perhaps he should tell his crew that having an I’ve been blocked by page up while they are blocking people makes them look ridiculous.

It really sucks to be Travis Allen. He should call Tyler Diep and tell him he is running for re-election to AD72. Tyler Diep should tell Travis Allen to retire. Heck, I might shake young Tyler’s hand if he did that…
