Yup – Hard-Core Stan Sniff supporter, internet troll and “Master Investigator” Tony Pelato is out on Sick Leave. This is conveniently timed as Pelato is under fire for his well known (but not well documented) use of the N-Word and hostility toward minorities. It is also a fairly well-known rumor that another team Sniff Member, Robert Cornett is on his way to Sick Leave. It is now being widely discussed that both men are “Brady Listed”
The “Brady List” is a list of law enforcement officers with a documented pattern of dishonesty. As you recall, Cornett was spared anything more than a hand-slap in the massive cheating scandal he was in the middle of.
Another fundraiser fail:
Stan Sniff had a fundraiser event at Mohammad Ali Mazarei’s house. It was not well attended and the 24 hour report that followed said fundraiser was anemic.
$5000 from Carmen Mariscal, his Barber whose brother and business partner is a convicted felon.
$2500 from Undertaker DiYoyo – suggesting DiYoyo is in line to be Sniff’s anointed heir should he get re-elected. (Another rumor is that Sniff is going to tap out medically)
$1000 from a previous donor known for giving Sniff rather large checks. This time it is a paltry $1000.
Mohammad Ali Mazarei’s last event for Sniff was attended by something like 200+ people and raised an alleged $50K+
Stan Sniff Refused a Federal Grant for Body Armor?
This information is from another former deputy. The former deputy wanted the truth about Sniff to come out. This is first hand knowledge. Here it goes.An unnamed deputy worked to acquire military grade ballistic vest, aka, “Body Armor”, for all the Department members. The body armor was lighter, and capable of defending a rifle round. Unlike the current ballistic vest issued to deputies, which are heavier, and are not designed to defend a rifle round. If a deputy wants the higher level ballistic vest the deputy has to pay the difference. The deputy worked with Congress man Raul Ruiz, who represents the eastern part of Riverside County, to get a grant to fund the equipment. Raul Ruiz obtained the funds to purchase the upgraded vest. The deputy just needed to get Stanley to sign off on the grant. When Stanley found out the grant was from Raul Ruiz, a democrat, Stanley said, I am a republican, I don’t work with democrats, and denied the grant.Stanley put politics in front of the safety of his deputies.
