One of the key items in the attempt to bully me by Mohammad Ali Mazarei was the assertion that Ali Mazarei got preferential treatment for a CCW Permit. It has been long known amongst the rank and file. Since I had no super-concrete proof I had to back off of the claim somewhat while being of the opinion that Ali Mazarei was lying to cover himself.

Since then, Mazarei has been publicly threatening candidates for office, making self-promoting posts on social media, acting like he runs the Riverside County Lincoln Club and the like. Mazarei is a recent addition to the political landscape even though his donor relationship with Stan Sniff started in 2011. When he posted the legal demand letter on facebook, complete with publishing my home address, (getting others to share it in an attempt to intimidate me and gain political advantage), he claimed that in 2009 when he got his CCW he did not know the sheriff. Several sources inside the department dispute those claims.

Pictured, Sheriff Stan Sniff looking all tough and stuff with a silenced automatic weapon. Mohammad Ali Mazarei, circled and looking all tough and stuff with body armor on. Then, three unnamed deputies that are obviously on the Good Boy’s list are also pictured. The location is a range that most of the rank and file are not allowed to go to – even though our tax dollars pay for its’ operation, maintenance and upkeep. Yet, we are supposed to believe that Ali Mazarei is NOT getting special treatment from the sheriff?

Mohammad Ali Mazarei bragged in his legal demand letter that he sells stuff to a lot of people inside the Riverside Sheriff’s Office. I wonder how long Mr. Mazarei would be able to keep his Federal Firearms License if the ATF was given a nice fat file complete with information on Mr. Mazarei’s personal conduct? I wonder if the sales of stuff to the folks he brags about selling stuff to have any other consideration involved in them?

Remember – Mazarei has donated $50K+ to the Sheriff (that we know of as the last $9300 check was reported 3 months late, so there could be others not reported yet).

Yet, we are supposed to believe that the now 2nd largest donor to the Sheriff who lists several of the Sheriff’s subordinates as customers is NOT receiving any sort of special treatment?

Enter two sources who have asked for anonymity:

I recently received a fund raiser flyer to Stan Sniff’s Southwest Riverside County Campaign Kick-off. On one page of this flyer there was a description off Sheriff Stan Sniff. I have attached a picture of that description and I hope you can read it. Upon reading this description I immediately recognized that these bullet point descriptions were missing two key words. Words that should be used to describe a person who holds the rank of Sheriff. Can you guess the missing two words? Those two words are  “Leader” and “Ethics” or any of their derivatives (leadership, ethical etc.)…this is sad, very very sad.

The department is in complete turmoil because we have not had strong leadership from Sniff nor Diyorio. When the leaders don’t lead, all the rest of the nonsense that you have been writing about begins to happen (thermal station scandal, cheating scandal on the detective tests in 2015, then cheating on the Lt and Caps test in 2016, sergeants and lieutenants in admin positions not working full days…which has become part of the culture at those ranks etc etc). This agency has been a ship adrift for years now and it is sad.

Second word, ethics. It is true (and I have witnessed it first hand) that if you are a FOS (friend of the sheriff) you will go to the front of the line to get a ccw. If you are john q citizen, it’s a 18 month to two year wait. All department members know about this, from the office staff, to the deputies and above. We see the Sheriff campaigning on duty or having his people do it for him (Purvis on the dept owned gator with a Sniff campaign sign etc. etc) and know full well that if we were caught doing something like that for Bianco we’d be gone.

This lack of leadership and the hypocritical ethical environment that sniff has created has left this department in shambles. We no longer encourage our friends or family to apply here. We tell them about Corona PD, or Riverside PD, or Ontario PD, but not RSO. Why? Because the pride is gone. The morale is terrible, and this place has become so divided that it is now toxic. There is a gulf between the true workers and the admin, the haves and the have-nots. Over the years, the only deputies that Sniff has spoken to are ones being promoted or ones at dui checkpoints on Friday nights. Ones that will never ever confront him, and rightly so because their whole career is ahead of them.

Two words left out of sheriff Stan Sniff’s description of himself in his fund raiser flyer, Leader, and Ethics. And that is exactly why our RSO is such a mess. I hate to keep using this word over and over, but I must use it one more time…..sad!

That is pretty definitive, isn’t it? Since Mohammad Ali Mazarei is an elected member of the Riverside County Republican Central Committee, and thusly is an elected official he has to prove I had reckless disregard for the truth when I suggest that he is one of those that received special treatment for a CCW Permit from the Sheriff. Good Luck Ali.

I know of one elected officeholder who is retired military that waited 2 years for his interview and was turned down for a CCW Permit. The man had not donated a dime to Sniff before or since.

It is also well-known in the department that the case related to the corrupt operation of Mazarei’s smog check business was re-opened right around the same time as Mazarei’s last donation of $9300 to the Sheriff on 10/5/2017. (one account says the case was re-opened 10/11 another says two weeks later) Also, it is well-known that Ali Mazarei believes that the employee being prosecuted will allow him to sue everyone he is mad at for blasting him publicly. It sure looks like Mazarei himself thinks he’s getting special treatment from the Sheriff, let alone what I think?

Well guess what? Another one of my anonymous sources sent me a choice facebook message pictured here.

Well isn’t that special? I now have plenty of basis to level the charge that Mohammad Ali Mazarei did indeed appear to be buying influence via his financial largess to the Sheriff. (look at the photo, look at the written comments about ccw’s) All Mohammad Ali Mazarei has accomplished with his attempted bullying of this blog with the typo-laden ESL failure of a legal demand letter was a guaranteed ass-whupping on the Right on Daily Blog, because this is how we deal with bullies.

As a side note, I was told Paul Aguirre was recently hired onto a part-time consulting gig. Given the pattern of behavior I’ve seen from the Sheriff, it would not surprise me if this was done to pin Aguirre down from talking about the abuse of the CCW process under Stan Sniff. It’s ok though, I can pick from dozens of witnesses to write declarations or to come testify in Auburn if needed.

Coming soon – even more smoking guns related to the conduct under Sheriff Stan Sniff and undertaker Diyoyo.

P.S. The “Pro Gun” Sheriff has disarmed the Jail staff too, something the local papers seem to fail to mention when they call him “Pro Gun”.

P.P.S A recent comment by a Daniel Shays sheds ever further light:

let’s talk about what 40-50k buys for Mohamed. He has free access to the range when employees can not even take their spouse. We know know he doesn’t call 911 like a normal person he calls his friend Stanley. He gets special CCW treatment for himself and his friends, who unlawfully use his business as their “good cause” even though they don’t work there. And he gets his very own tax payer funded private security. That’s right, the residents in Woodcrest get to sit without law enforcement services for an entire afternoon while both deputies sit watch Mohamed load up all his guns and move them to another residence in the city of riverside. Both of them should be charged with embezzlement and misuse of government funds. Unethical and illegal. Great job Sheriff!!!

Ever tried to get a CCW Permit in Riverside County?

A comment on a gun rights group page CRPA sets the stage for the Stan Sniff versus the constitution fight.

Thats true.. I mean 2018 till an interview is what one guy said….. you know how many deputies are on limited duty and on disability ect they could throw in that division? they could put like 20 guys in there.. BTW, the two deputies that are in there now are super super guys .. Frank Yezzo is a great guy and one of the JUST TWO deputies in that division… and very easy going in the whole process but again, its almost like you should just CCW on your own at that point of waiting.

Unpack the comment. In a county of 2.4 Million people Sheriff Sniff has limited the number of people processing CCW Permits to 2.

I have a current CCW from another county. I’m told by Riverside county that I have to begin the process over in their county, taking the safety course from one of their vendors and I have to interview. They gave me an appointment in January 2019!!

I also have to surrender my CCW to the issuing county because of my change of address.

Got it? Someone with a CCW is going to have to give it up for 2+ Years because of the artificially created backlog by Sheriff Sniff.

Perhaps the Sheriff’s affinity to the ACLU, SEIU, LIUNA and the Carpenter’s Union is no accident? Perhaps his endorsements of extreme left wing democrat Cheryl Brown was really ideological? Richard Roth is no slouch at grabbing guns either.

Kevin Johnson says: Just got my interview appointment. First available was April 2019. Over two years away. The problem is worse since this article was written.

Because the Sheriff has done such a poor job for 10 years on issuing CCW Permits, cities within the county that are not contracting with the Riverside Sheriff’s Office are attempting to take matters in to their own hands to issue permits.

The bottom line is that Sheriff Sniff is anti-gun and places no priority in issuing CCW Permits. He may be able to play politician to fool some of the gun rights groups for an occasional endorsement, but unpacking his horrific record on gun rights will tell the real tale.

As of Early 2015 here is your count on CCW Permits. Riverside County is a County of 2,400,000 people.

Riverside County: About 1,200 (including 258 new permits in 2014)

San Bernardino County: 3,361 (including 720 new permits in 2014)

We’re going to lead in to the second post about the Sheriff’s Abysmal Record on Gun Rights with this 2014 Story right after the 9th Circuit amazingly hammered San Diego County for adding several layers of barriers to CCW Permits that were ultimately ruled unconstitutional.

But a gun rights group contends that the ruling, centered on concealed permit rules in San Diego County, also is proof that Inland counties aren’t following the law. The executive director of the Calguns Foundation is threatening legal action against Riverside County if it doesn’t ease its rules for civilians who want to carry hidden guns in public.

Instead of changing to accommodate the ruling and the will of the people, Sheriff Sniff has passively-aggressively doubled down on making CCW permits nigh-on-impossible in Riverside County. In essence the Sheriff has told would-be CCW permit holders “Up Yours”.

The pattern of our leftist “Republican” social justice warrior sheriff is well established as you will see in the next installment of “Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff to Gun Rights Groups: UP YOURS”…

The definition of passive aggressive is to tell someone you are going to do something and the second they take their eye off of you, do the exact opposite. Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff is full of excuses for why Riverside County is extremely difficult for law abiding citizens to obtain a CCW Permit in.

The Sheriff has blamed “The Budget” and staffing for his stubborn refusal to increase the pathetic number of approvals for CCW Permits in Riverside County.

When attempting to defend his horrid record on CCW Permits, Sniff set fire to himself: “Around 1,100 residents countywide — not including law enforcement — are currently licensed to carry firearms, according to the sheriff.”

1100. Out of 2.4 Million people. This is an astonishing .045% of the residents.

Now, of course, another excuse from the Sheriff: “California is a very anti-gun state,” Sniff said. ”I’m not sure the idea of ‘shall-issue’ is ever going to wash here.”

So, the solution of the Sheriff? Only one person on staff who processes permits. This is called passive-aggressive behavior while rightly bashing the state of California to keep people off of the scent.

You see, in 2014, Sniff’s stubborn refusal to grant many CCW permits was a campaign issue for his opponent Chad Bianco. (ahem, it is again in 2018, too…)

An Article in 2014 had some pretty irritated Gun Rights Groups lighting up the Sheriff for his #EPICFAIL on granting CCW Permits:

The head of several pro-gun organizations today threatened legal action against Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff over an alleged policy of arbitrarily withholding concealed weapons permits, which the sheriff denied, pointing to evidence that he’s always been a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights.

Brandon Combs, who runs the Calguns Foundation and the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees, announced the ”Fix-Riverside Initiative,” aimed at spurring Sniff to loosen up the issuance of concealed gun licenses in the wake of a U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in February.

Now, you have perspective for the 2 year waits that people were complaining about in 2016 and 2017. Stan Sniff does not care. If he did, he could pull excess administrative staff over to processing CCW Permits. Instead, he prefers to cry poor and pick fights with the county board of supervisors… while hauling in $330k in total compensation at all of our expense.

IN January of 2016, in the wake of one of many acts of Radical Islamic Terror in this case that was a massacre in San Bernardino, there was a surge in applications.

In neighboring Riverside County the wait now stands at 18 months after just two members of the police department were left to process the hundreds of applications being received each month.

Note, I have been informed that there is now only one officer. Once again, pattern recognition takes over here as the previous post shows us the following:

I have a current CCW from another county. I’m told by Riverside county that I have to begin the process over in their county, taking the safety course from one of their vendors and I have to interview. They gave me an appointment in January 2019!!

Kevin Johnson says: Just got my interview appointment. First available was April 2019. Over two years away. The problem is worse since this article was written.

In 2014, Sniff only granted 258 new CCW Permits in a County of 2.4 Million people. In 2017, people are reporting 2+ Year waits for an interview due to Sniff’s Passive Aggressive Behavior. We deserve better in Riverside County, instead of a Politician that lies to Gun Rights Groups to get their endorsement by answering questionnaires – we need a Sheriff that understands public safety and what real gun rights looks like.

P.S. The people that threatened to sue Sniff in 2014, should do so now.

Remember when we told you about the Sheriff’s control issues and his lack of prioritization of CCW Permits? Remember when we suggested that it was a passive-aggressive back-dooring of Gun Control?

On 10/23/2017, we introduced you to the Sheriff’s passive-aggressive resistance to giving anyone a CCW Permit in a timely manner. Then on 10/30/2017, we followed up with even MORE evidence spread out over several years that the 2 year wait was not an aberration.

When Chad Bianco ran against the Sheriff in 2014, he lit in to him over the passive aggressive resistance to CCW Permits. It appears that the problem has gotten worse, not better.

By most accounts, Riverside County’s CCW backlog began in December 2015, shortly after a mass shooting in the neighboring San Bernardino County killed 14 and injured 22 others. A radicalized Islamic couple, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, attacked a government holiday party with assault rifles and handguns.

Then, the Sheriff did NOTHING to solve the problem. However, he does blame the budget, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, the tooth fairy and every other imaginary goonie for the problem.

Historically, this whole process took no more than two or three months, said Sniff, who has served as sheriff for a decade.

Nowadays, applicants may wait eight times that long just to get the interview.

“Two years is ridiculous,” said Justin Luhrs, 38, of Riverside. “Even six months is too long.”

The article takes pains to paint the Sheriff as pro-gun. Apparently, he is not pro-gun enough to even attempt to address the backlog.

Perkio turned in his application for a concealed weapon license and asked how long the review process would take. A polite sheriff’s deputy showed him several two-foot stacks of unprocessed applications, each one just like his.

They would all have to be reviewed before Perkio’s turn would come, the deputy warned.

The wait would be about 28 months.

“It was a shock,” said Perkio, 56, who is licensed to carry a gun in 26 states, but a year-and-a-half later is still waiting for his application to be processed in Riverside. “If something happens in the meantime, this is a Second Amendment opportunity to protect myself that I simply don’t have.”

Sheriff Sniff did not plan to fail. He failed to plan. The previous articles on this issue show that the CCW Permit process was a problem long before two of Obama’s “Refugees” decided to kill infidels. Sheriff Sniff will get unseated as Sheriff because he has failed to do his job.

When presented with evidence he has failed in his job as Sheriff, his preferred course of action has been to retaliate against anyone suggesting a different course of action and to fight the Riverside County Board of Supervisors at every juncture. (Even the Desert Sun article shows the effects of the Sheriff’s intimidation as they tried to blunt the effect) The Sheriff has had over 10 years to direct the ship and instead the problems are getting worse, the new jail will be empty and good people are retiring or jumping ship to other counties. It is time for a change.

What If I told you that in 2015, there were 800 CCW Permits in all of Orange County, yet over 9,300 today? Wouldn’t that make you wonder what Stan Sniff’s problem is in Riverside? Orange County went to a municipal bankruptcy in the 1990’s and is only marginally better off than Riverside County. Yet, Somehow they have figured out how to have a 10-fold increase in CCW Permits to accommodate demand.

A little more than 2½ years ago, there only were about 800 active CCW permits in Orange County, with two professional staff members handling the application process.

Now there are more than 9,300 active CCW permits in O.C. — an avalanche-like surge in demand that has forced the creation of an entire department within the OCSD, the Carry a Concealed Weapon (CCW) Licensing Unit, which employs more than two-dozen sworn and professional staff.

Applicants for CCWs run the gamut, from students to owners of Fortune 500 businesses to plumbers, lawyers and elected officials.

In 2009, in one of Sheriff Sniff’s many arguments with the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, Sniff was admonished to start issuing more CCW Permits. Back then, there were about 500 of them. Today, there are about 2700 – 3.5 times less than Orange County over a period of time three times as long. This is a key quote from the 2009 article:

According to Undersheriff Valerie Hill, roughly 500 county residents have concealed carry permits. “We take (the issuance of permits) very seriously,” she told the board. “Every time we issue a permit, it’s a liability for the county.”

Got it? The allegedly pro-gun sheriff looks at CCW Permits as a liability. Wrong answer, but this is the answer of a Richard Roth endorsing anti-gun liberal. People have been banging the CCW permit drum for nearly 10 years and the Sheriff has ignored them.

Stone highlighted the prospective release of 27,000 inmates in the next six months from California prisons and the impact that might have on public safety as one of the motivating factors behind the resolution, which Sheriff Stan Sniff has the option — but not the obligation — to act upon.

In 2009, then Supervisor Jeff Stone was sounding the alarm over “Fed Kicks” and their effect on crime. As we’ve written about ,the Sheriff did not plan to staff jails or address this problem either. This has been a consistent failure pattern with Sheriff Sniff and we will have more to say about the legacy of his leadership on enforcement and incarceration.

Back to Orange County:

Now, Stiverson says, the OCSD — after staffing up and relocating the CCW Licensing Unit to larger offices — usually is able to see an applicant for his or her initial CCW appointment within two to six months depending on fluctuations in public demand and unit staffing levels. The agency’s target goal is to reduce initial appointment wait times to less than two months.

Sheriff Sniff’s department sees wait times of at least 24 months. (Unless you are a “friend” of the sheriff) We’ve documented these horrendous wait times in several articles. The Orange County Sheriff’s department provides an interesting contrast. The bungling of Sheriff Sniff has also caused several cities to spend some of their limited resources processing CCW permits at their local level as well.

If Sheriff Sniff was truly committed to issuing CCW permits to anyone that is not a donor or a buddy, he’d have addressed the issue in a similar manner to Orange County. Nowhere in the Orange County article do you hear their department calling CCW permits a “liability”. This contrast is yet another reason for people once supportive of the Sheriff to fire him from office.

Prologue – your intrepid blogger was provided the documentation and the base draft of this post from a confidential informant interested in aiding our efforts against Stan Sniff. I did edit the post before publishing.

“SNIFFY & THE PEDOPHILES”

No, this is not the title of a defunct new wave band of the 80’s.  It refers to the current sheriff and his business partner. Given that Sniff has endorsers with Prostitution Busts, and Donors with criminal records, there is an emerging pattern.

After the bombshell revelation last week that Stan Sniff oversaw the “catch and release” of documented child sex offender, we began to recognize a pattern when its comes to Sniff and Sex Offenders.  Sniff released a documented pedophile into the county without oversight or regard to the safety of the identified child victims and potential victims at risk of being assaulted by “Sniff’s Sex Offender Buddy.” Sniff has inexplicably and repeatedly sided with child sex predators over the interests of Riverside County residents.

Last month, we also informed our readers about the status of missing sex offenders and Sniff’s failure to locate them in Riverside County.  According to the Department of Justice website “Megan’s Law Sex Offender Database, the number of Riverside County child  sex offenders in current violation of their residence and registration requirements has increased on his watch to over 350 as of March 2018!

See for yourself at https://www.meganslaw.ca.gov

When we first posted about “Sniffy and the Pedophiles,” we called out Sniff’s own supporters to refute our accusations if they refused to believe that Sniffy would play so nice with these child predators.  This blog did not receive ANY comments from Sniffy’s stooges calling our claims into questions.  By now, even the most blindly-supporting Sniffers must have known that “Sniffy and the Pedophiles” is a real problem for the soon-to-be ex-sheriff.

What we did learn is that Sanctuary Stan Sniff is just fine cutting illegal alien sex offenders loose as well.

Unsatisfied with simply letting documented and convicted child sex offenders run amok throughout Riverside County, Sniff has now made a deal with the devil.

According to his own campaign reports, Sniffy sought out a convicted, registered sex offender.  Sniff paid this pedophile $58,102 to trick Riverside County voters into voting for him!  The child sex offender will be sending campaign mailers to hundreds of thousands of Riverside County homes.  With deceptive titles such as “Budget Watchdogs” and “Attention Republicans: Your California Voter Guide” and “California Senior Advocates League” and “Election Digest,” the child sex offender hopes you’ll never find out about the truth behind these fraudulent campaign mailers coming into your homes.

What Is A Slate Mailer?

Let’s start with a little background – Sniffy bought a bunch of slates.  These are campaign mailers that highlight his name (and sometimes photo) and advertise the purchaser (Sniff) with other candidates who also buy onto the mail piece.  Some slate mailers are legit, others, like the ones Sniff purchased from the sex offender are not.

Mr. Timothy M. Carey.

Tim Carey runs a bunch of slates from his Torrance office and sometimes from his Redondo Beach home. As discussed, expect to see his “Budget Watchdogs” slate mailer with Sniffy’s shiny red face on it soon.  For a man who has repeatedly blown his county-issued budget over and over and ruthlessly fought any attempts to reign it in, it seems like another grotesque lie to many that an organization called “Budget Watchdogs” would be recommending a vote for Sniffy.

As you can tell from the article above, Mr. Carey sells recommendations to pretty much anyone who will pay. Here are the deceptive slates Sniff paid $58,000 Mr. Carey for. See some supporting evidence linked here and linked here, linked here, linked here linked here and linked here. Your intrepid blogger is in to credible sources.

Please remember . . .  This is NOT some type of recent discovery.  See the LA Times article below that highlights a lawsuit by Carey against a man who shared the public information about Carey’s conviction in 1992 for committing lewd acts on a 12-year old girl.

Political Consultant Protests Airing of His Criminal Past

Courts: Letters sent to his clients ruined his business, onetime child molester alleges.

March 15, 1999|JEAN O. PASCO | L.A. TIMES STAFF WRITER

Can a convicted child molester successfully sue someone for damaging his reputation?

That is the overriding issue in a lawsuit filed by political consultant Timothy M. Carey of Torrance against former state controller candidate William Snow Hume of Fullerton.

Carey, 40, contends in the Harbor Justice Center suit that Hume, 41, destroyed his business by sending four defamatory letters beginning last October to clients of Carey’s California Voter Guide, which is a political advertisement sent to voters before each election.

Hume’s letters informed them of Carey’s criminal past: conviction of three felonies in 1992 for committing lewd acts on a then 12-year-old girl.

After receiving Hume’s letters, Carey said, several candidates withdrew from the guide, saying they didn’t want the political risk of being associated with him. Many demanded refunds.

Carey’s lawsuit alleges defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and unlawful business interference. He said Hume’s actions harmed his reputation and triggered an undisclosed medical condition for which he is seeking “lifelong physical therapy, counseling and incidental expenses.”

Hume, a frequent candidate for local office, said he sent the letters because he was “horrified” to learn last year, months after asking Carey to advise his campaign, that the consultant had been convicted of molesting a girl.

“I look at it as a consumer protection thing,” Hume said. “People have a right to know who they’re doing business with. Also, I will admit that I don’t want to help child molesters make a fortune. I’d never voluntarily give my business to someone who’s a scumbag like that.”

Neither Carey nor his attorney, Renee Garcia of Santa Ana, returned calls seeking comment.

One legal expert said Hume’s letters could be compared to Megan’s Law, which allows the addresses of registered sex offenders to be made public.

The problem for Carey is persuading a jury that Hume overstepped his bounds of free speech and made statements that were more damaging to his reputation than information in the public record, said Robert Pugsley, a constitutional law professor at Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles.

Finding sympathetic jurors will be tough, he said.

“A jury’s going to hear ‘child molester’ and they’ll puke,” Pugsley said. “They’ll be back in five minutes.”

However, that doesn’t mean a child molester can’t be defamed or prove injury to his reputation. “You still have some rights,” Pugsley said. “Nobody is totally thrown off the planet.”

California Voter Guide is mailed to Republican voters and promotes candidates through slate cards, which list preferred candidates for state and local offices. Though some candidates are listed free of charge, others, including legislative, city council and school board hopefuls, pay for placement on the slates.

Newport Beach political consultant Frank Caterinicchio said the guide is a reputable slate mailer used by candidates and consultants statewide.

Some political insiders know of Carey’s past, but “I wouldn’t say his personal problems tarnish the viability of the slates,” Caterinicchio said.

“There are a lot of people involved in making it successful.”

(except ended)

BOTTOM LINE:

Sniff needs to hang it up now, as in drop out of the race before he gets prosecuted for what has happened in his regime as Sheriff. Beyond activity your intrepid blogger believes to be criminal, He’s lost the support of the men and women he is supposed to lead. He’s lost the confidence and respect of the voters.

Stan Sniff’s buffoonery, laziness, personal corruption and incompetence has resulted in scandal after scandal.

Riverside voters will not take kindly to the fact that Sniff has hired a convicted child sex offender to send mail from bogus groups to their homes.  To send out these deceptive mailers for Sniff, this convicted felon has obtained voter lists that include phone numbers, email addresses, age, sex, party affiliation and home residence.

Will Sniffy do the right thing and protect Riverside County voters by cancelling the 600,000 pieces of sleazy and deceptive slate mail that the sex offender will begin sending out within two weeks?

Or will Sniffy simply hope that no one else finds out and his sex offender sleight-of-hand and send out the sex offender slates?

Your move, Sniffy . . . I mean, AFTER you get permission from your child sex offender slate associate.

Just to complete the picture, the same slate mail vendor got popped for campaign violations a few years ago. I am surprised Sniff did not interview him for a job.

May 302018
 

There is this thing called a ballot statement. They are permanent public record and go out to every registered voter in an election. An incumbent would do well to remember what he wrote in his own ballot statement.

In 2014, “I have raised the morale of deputies who protect our neighborhoods …”

There are some other whoppers about dealing with overcrowded jails and keeping control of tax dollars (you know, those outrageous maintenance contracts, abuses of overtime, etc etc etc)

The special one is improving the professionalism of our deputies… Pelato using the N-Word, Cornett’s Crime Scene Tattoo, Lyndon Raymond “the Executioner” Wood’s skull tattoos, Huizinga drop-firing his gun at the gas pump, cheating on advancement exams are just a few of the things I think about when I hear professionalism and Stan Sniff’s RSO.

Have a look at Sniffy’s 2010 Ballot Statement as snagged from a web archive:

Since I was appointed Riverside County Sheriff in 2007, I have been working to increase public safety by investing tax dollars wisely. Under my leadership, the Sheriff’s Department has maintained a balanced budget and kept the county safe through tough, innovative crime fighting techniques.
I have increased staffing levels, reduced overtime and lowered crime despite across-the
board budget cutbacks. I have raised the morale of the deputies who protect our neighborhoods. Weve also improved patrol service levels and reduced our response times.
As a result, we have caught and incarcerated violent and serious felons, cracked down on
gang and gun violence, and protected neighborhoods from drug dealers and quality of life crimes.
Under my guidance, the Sheriff’s Department has become more accessible to all Riverside County residents and improved the language proficiency and educational levels for deputies throughout the department.
I have also worked to improve cultural sensitivity for all staff and deputies and created a Tribal Liaison Unit to improve policing among the 12 tribal communities in Riverside County.
My leadership as your Sheriff is supported by every one of our police chiefs and by community leaders all across Riverside County.
As a retired Colonel in the Army Reserve, with 34 years of law enforcement experience and a strong record on behalf of crime victims, I would be honored to have your vote.
You can use Sniff’s two ballot statements as a thesis for failure. Crime is up. Equipment is dilapidated. 250 Deputies have fled since 1/1/2017. The new Jail is mostly empty. And on and on it goes.
But the most important statement about Morale just happened in a recent 2018 Article:
“I think the morale thing is typical nonsense that comes out election time,” said Sniff about his opponents. “When you don’t have anything else to run on, you talk about morale.”
Interesting times, huh?
P.S. I have been told by sources that Sniff has had Admin Block RightonDaily.com from department computers through an internet block protocol. Looks like people are using their phones because the traffic continues to shatter records.

Burn it all down is the mantra of the Travis Allen for Governor Campaign. If Travis can’t have it, no one can.

They thought they had team Trump all to themselves when West Walker and others signed on to the campaign and handed the keys to the Trump volunteer list to Travis Allen.

Now, with President Trump wisely and rightly endorsing John Cox for governor, cue the meltdown. Howard Jarvis Taxpayers are being attacked, President Trump is being attacked and members of Congress are being attacked by Travis Allen’s flying monkeys.

Some are comparing Travis Allen to Jesus. Others are attacking people being paid by Mr. Cox to do campaign work.

Meantime, Travis Allen is doing nothing and has done nothing to reign these people in.
