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.
