Look close. Anyone that reads any of my stuff for any length of time knows I am easily to the right of most all sane Americans. I would not align myself with a Union (or in this case several Police and Fire Unions) under normal circumstances, if ever.
Chad Bianco is Pro-Life. He is a “Shall Issue” CCW guy. He is a traditional values Evangelical Christian. He is a prototypical Conservative Republican candidate. He is also endorsed by a slew of Law-Enforcement Unions.
The race between Stan Sniff and Chad Bianco for Riverside County Sheriff is one of stark contrasts. Even the photo of Chad Bianco with his wife speaks to one of the biggest moral contrasts – Stan Sniff is rumored to have slept with several staff members of RSO and even if the rumors of infidelity are false, he has been featured on this blog in a slew of inappropriate photos for a married man. You don’t hear about Chad Bianco leaving his office in an unmarked Crown Victoria with his arm around another man’s wife.
Chad Bianco is an Evangelical Christian. Stan Sniff is an Athiest.
Chad Bianco supports strong borders and ICE. Stan Sniff ended cooperation with ICE in 2013.
Chad Bianco wants to solve the Early Release of Felons crisis. Stan Sniff has complained about it for years and when he had a chance to do something, he sided with the NIMBYS and donors in the desert (and the feckless late John Benoit) in torpedoing a 6,000+ bed jail.
Chad Bianco wants to restore integrity to the Sheriff’s Department.
Stan Sniff has covered up Kevin Duffy’s serial child molestation, Jailbreaks, DUI’s on Duty, felonies committed by special team leaders, massive cheating on advancement exams, sexual dalliances department wide and is currently trying to scuttle a transparency audit by KPMG.
Chad Bianco has endured years of retaliation because he had the temerity to run against Stan Sniff in 2014. Bianco is not alone, your intrepid blogger is aware of at least 5 employment practices lawsuits and I have over 20 sources requesting anonymity who have all detailed dozens of cases of retaliation. This is why I name names of supervisor level employees – these are the minions of Stan Sniff that are either acting on direct orders or conversely are doing it because they are not being supervised.
One of Stan Sniff’s first acts as Sheriff was to retaliate against Chief Deputy Randy Throne.
Chad Bianco has earned the loyalty of the rank and file Sheriff Deputies. Stan Sniff demands it.
Chad Bianco wants to restore the SWAT Team to it’s original purpose and make sure teams like the Bomb Squad have the best people on them – not tyrannical cronies. Sniff’s legacy has been to subjugate and decimate things that were not his idea.
The equipment of the Riverside Sheriff’s Office and Department is dilapidated and in disrepair.
The Worker’s Comp System is being abused repeatedly by the Stan Sniff regime who are devoid of reason and discard injured employees playing an actuarial game to shave pennies off of claims – only to pay out 10 times as much in the resulting lawsuits.
A lot of people in the Riverside Sheriff’s Association (that is the Deputy’s Union) have a lot of skin in the game. They are desperate for change. They call me telling me about their cancelled vacations, “Yellow Days”, Double Shifts, arbitrary actions of management, injuries where treatment is being denied, legal games, retaliatory discipline, cover-ups for Stan Sniff loyalists, couples being broken up, families being retaliated against, gestapo-like surveillance or computer snooping, and the list goes on and on and on.
My wife has been attacked by Sniff and Crew. My Brother has. My Insurance Business Has. Some of my best sources have come forward once it was known I was paying a personal price for taking on Sheriff Stan Sniff. I am aware of at least 2 instances of private investigators looking in to my personal affairs. I’ve had more than one person tell me to look over my shoulder as they fear Stan Sniff so much they think he’d have people try and physically harm me.
Any idiot who stays fixated on who I know (or take photos with) or which mythical figure is paying me is involved in the corruption. No sane person could read everything posted on this blog about Stan Sniff and ignore it or dismiss it otherwise. This is the moral compromise required to swim in the corruption of Stan Sniff.
Chad Bianco represents more than a Sheriff Candidate – he represents the hope of a generation of good cops hanging on to their original passion for law enforcement. He also represents the hope for the beleaguered people in Riverside County suffering from the effects of feckless law enforcement. He represents the hope of a future generation of Police that want to pick up the pieces of the Riverside Sheriff’s Office and restore law enforcement.
Chad Bianco is fighting against a political establishment that prefers inertia and the status quo in a numb comfortable bubble. He just so happens to be the most conservative candidate that ran for sheriff. It is those clear values that make him stand out so much.
I do not regret for a second getting in the middle of the Riverside County Sheriff’s race. The more I talk to people and the more I learn about the situation – the more I am convinced I made the right choice.

Chad Bianco will inherit a colossal mess. It is being made worse daily by Stan Sniff as he is in a Narcissistic Rage as he sees his tenure slipping away and his legacy has been shattered. Sniff is promoting cronies, not based on merit, but because he can. Sniff is playing games with Staffing, not to actually improve police service – but rather to circumvent the KPMG Audit. Sniff and crew are actively snooping on the computers and desks of people they think are supporting Chad Bianco in order to terminate them. They are transferring people in a time honored practice known as “Freeway Therapy” to try and get them to quit.
Sniff has played budget magic “finding” money hidden in years of cooked books, but none of the money is spent actually trying to improve conditions or service levels. The money is being spent trying to put political band-aids on a decade of failure. The last 60 days of the Sniff regime will be a manic rampage as will the lame duck period through the day Chad Bianco is sworn in (if Bianco wins).
This is the time to re-double your efforts and sustain it through election day. Ballots will be in the mail in about 5 weeks.
