Confirmed, Jeff Van Wagenen is still trying to place Sniff Management in the under age 50 range. The pernicious rumor of Van Wagenen placing the reviled Kevin Vest in a place where he will be able to monitor all of the communications and data of the Sheriff’s Department is painfully real. As recently as two days ago, Van Wagenen and Vest were seen together.
A few weeks ago, I got a tip that Dave Brown was working as a consultant for the City of Menifee regarding spending their windfall from their fiscally irresponsible 1 Cent Sales Tax Increase. One of the items was Matt Liesmeyer’s lifelong dream of a Menifee PD. No issue with Dave Brown getting paid, in fact, since the Menifee City Council post Neil “Nuclear” Winter was determined to get their own PD why not have Dave Brown involved in starting it? The issue with the Menifee sales tax increase is what the Council has been doing with the money (such as allowing unionization of City Employees and taking on more long term obligations).
The presence of Brown in the Menifee PD picture basically means that the interviews the Menifee City Manager was having with Sniff management personnel may as well have never happened.
There has been limited info on the status of Yvonne “Eggplant” Varela or Jessica Gore, wife of now Sergeant Jason Gore (A central figure in the massive cheating scandal). Both worked for the Corrupt Sheriff, both are expected to get the assistance of Jeff Van Wagenen in to another taxpayer funded job. If anyone has any information on the status of these two, please reach out to us. Many of their victims over the years are curious to know where their soft landing will be…
An interesting note: Donald Vincent Brooks was convicted of a Felony and a Misdemeanor. It is always interesting when you criticize cops, because even a known racist like Mike Cornett can be an effective investigator. While Cornett does not have a good reputation in any facet of police work, it sure appears that what he was telling people about Brooks’ situation was accurate. Cornett is still on the Brady List and will forever be remembered for getting away with being a major figure in the cheating scandal at the expense of Lance Colmer. (Who was basically made the scapegoat)
Chad Bianco will be sworn in on January 8th.
