These are the campaign contributions made by Riverside Sheriff’s Department employees to Sheriff Sniff.  Titles are included when listed in the campaign reports.

Its curious that some contributors have bounced up and down at a fairly rapid pace.  Some employees promoted really fast, others not so much. Some appear to have been demoted and re-promoted – at least according to the campaign filings that Sniff signed under penalty of perjury that he examined his filings and they are correct based on the best of his abilities.

Either his abilities to figure out the rank of his employee donors is extremely flawed OR he simply failed to review the document for accuracy – in spite of signing these documents under oath.

Last time I checked, perjury is listed as a felony in the California Penal Code.

Over the years, Sniff has extracted $38,097 from his employees – many from those he promoted or would promote soon.

It sure looks like he was selling promotions to a number of these folks.

Of course, Sniff is likely to respond that these employees contributed freely to his campaigns because they viewed him as the best person for the job.  Fair enough.  Let’s run with that perspective.

So, in Sniff’s world, the $38,097 is just financial validation of the support he earned from these employees.

Well, this is going to sting a bit.

Sniff needs to be reminded that the $600,000+ contributed to Bianco’s campaign is just financial validation of the the bulk of Sniff’s employees telling Sniff that he has lost the support of his employees and he needs to pack his bags.

Sniff complains about unions – especially public employee unions – and how they are spending union dues to oppose his re-election.

Poor Sniffles.  His dementia must be more advances than previously reported because during his prior elections, he had no problem at all taking wads of public employee union money.  I guess now that he’s been cut off, he’s decided that union money i a bad thing.

Please see previous post about Sniff taking $193,000 from unions, with the lion’s share coming from the RSA.

Karma’s a … what?

We’ve made it easy for the world to see who is kissing Sniff’s butt and hoping for promotions before he leaves office with his tail between his legs.

The visual is hilarious, and “sniffs butt” just makes me laugh. Enjoy the numbers.

  1. So it only costs 100 bucks to promote at rso. Well $100 and selling your soul to Satan.

  2. How interesting is it that most of the people that have since retired haven’t donated since retiring. If they truly support Sniff and this wasn’t a pay to play scenario then why not continue to support him in the most contentious race he has ever been in? For years we have wondered why the incompetent people have become supervisors and ROD has put it out there for us to see. Tax the ones that want to promote but need help getting there then control them once they arrive.

  3. This list pretty much explains how Sniff spent RSD department’s money and why he was constantly whining for more. Whores are expensive.

  4. Maybe I’m missing something here.

    Sniffs hounddogs continually harp that Bianco has no experience, so explain to me how a deputy gets promoted to Asst Sheriff.

  5. This is legalized bribery, and mimics the behavior of a criminal enterprise. Money is given to a political figure in return for preferential treatment, or in the case of the Wolf’s Lair, promotions and assignments. I am all for supporting the political process, and donations to a candidate is essential, but not at the expense of ethical principles because the second floor’s behavior portrays them in a Machiavellian light.
