Stockton politics is a cesspool.
In Placer, our biggest troubles are usually democrats trying to run for local office – or democrats re-registering Republican, then running for local office.
In Stockton, you have convicted felons like N. Allen Sawyer, a former business partner of Lee Neves running campaigns. In San Joaquin County, party affiliation does not matter, there are two camps made up of all kinds of different folks. So, while some will react with glee over a Republican (Silva) getting popped on sex charges… there are always democrats like Sam Fant swimming in the same cesspool.
It appears that Anthony Silva had another hobby (besides what I believe to be corruption), playing strip poker with minors in Amador county versus at the Epic Lounge.
To Sacramento Bee took a break from their Trump-Bashing (Hey, there is an election to manipulate) to inform the world about Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva.
He was charged with recording confidential communications, a felony, and three misdemeanors: contributing to the delinquency of a minor, furnishing alcohol to a person under 21 and child endangerment.
Riebe said the charges relate to incidents Aug. 7, 2015, at the Silver Lake camp in Amador County.
“This comes from an FBI investigation that we became aware of last Tuesday,” Riebe said. “These charges stem from that investigation.”
