San Mateo Board of Supervisors Called to Act.

Several San Mateo County citizens of note have called for the San Mateo Board of Supervisors to take action in matters related to the conduct of District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Sheriff Greg Munks, and Undersheriff Bolanos.

Mark DePaula and Michael Stogner -- who were both recently candidates for County Supervisor,  and citizen Lamont Phemister have submitted to the Board of Supervisors a request that the Board consider the following:


1) That the Board should call on Sheriff Munks to resign as Sheriff.
2) That Bolanos be dismissed.
3) That DA Wagstaffe make public the report of the investigation into samTrans accounting.
4) That DA Wagstaffe resign.
5) That they call on the FBI to open the Operation Dollhouse report.
6) That they call on the US Department of Justice to investigate samTrans.

Please click here for a full copy of the request submitted to the San Mateo Board of Supervisors. The document contains the full text of their letter, along with comprehensive supporting articles and notes.


This new expression of citizen concern and lack of faith in San Mateo County officials comes on the heels of recent significant citizen concern and press coverage about the revelation that former San Mateo County  prosecutor Alfred Giannini (who was to serve as second chair in the william ayres criminal re-trial before he changed his plea, and was found guilty of 8 counts of child molestation), and who was the subject of a 2011 report on prosecutorial misconduct, is now training discipline prosecutors for the California State Bar. 

For additional information on the Giannini matter, see the following recent resources:

Wagstaffe Double Standard

On KTVU Channel 2 News Feb 23, 2015:

  KTVU -

San Mateo District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe was on the Channel 2 news at 10pm on Monday night, demonstrating for the public the double standard that he observes in prosecuting crimes:

On the prosecution of Juan Lopez who ran for Sheriff against Greg Munks, and who is accused of watching a prison inmate use a cell phone, DA Wagstaffe has this to say:

"It's simply: If somebody violates the law, they have to pay the consequences."


After DA Wagstaffe's friend Sheriff Munks was busted by the FBI in an illegal brothel in an "Operation Dollhouse" investigation on potentially trafficked and underaged prostitutes, in a  residential area described as "run-down apartments and homes with mattresses on the floors and the stench of cigarettes, urine and feces in the air," DA Wagstaffe had this to say:

"To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not in the slightest marked (sic) by the modern media's efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think now, remember it will by yesterday's news and irrelevant by tomorrow"


Also, don't forget the Wagstaffe Double Standard we mentioned just the other day:

If you're a county employee who engages in sex crimes -- we don't prosecute you or remove you from office (like many of the recent law enforcement officer sex crimes -- including Greg Munks) or we actually do the RIGHT thing (for the wrong reasons?) and allow an outside agency to prosecute -- as in the case of Chief Probation Officer (and longtime juvenile hall employee) Stuart Forrest's large collection of little boy child porn. (By the way -- did you know that he's not locked up anymore? Nor is he on the Megan's Law public list.)

If, on the other hand, you're a county employee who has caused some heartache with the higher ups, because you noticed and want to fix some improprieties, we throw the book at you if you may have had the opportunity to notice that a jail inmate had a cell phone.

Appeal Update and other Screeds

Trust me! I'm a Shrink!
Two items of interest today: One covered by local bird-cage-liners, the other not.

Issue One: The ayres’ conviction appeal; current status –

As things went with the ayres trial, so things go with the appeal of his conviction. The child molester’s shysters told the court that they’d need lots of delays; the court promised that few would be granted; and then the court grants all of the delays.

The current deadline for “Opening Brief” to be filed is now April 20, 2015. The molester’s shysters have also now submitted a few exhibits -- reports from various stages of the incompetency malingering gambit, including reports from two doctors: One from ayres’ stay at Napa, from Dr. Erin Warnick  During the competency trail (which did NOT convince the jurors that ayres was incompetent) Warnick fronted the opinion that ayres was suffering dementia (in the areas that are most frequently faked, when dementia is faked) but she also stated that ayres was definitely inflating the severity of his dementia. She also noted that he was unpleasant, irritable, with poor judgment, poor emotional control, and poor behavioral control (maybe it was the fact that he was grooming an inmate with actual mental deficits for sexual contact that lead her to this conclusion?) Warnick’s scoring of a “Global Assessment of Functioning” test also called into question some of the lower results of one of the other Napa Doctors.

I would assume that the defense is using Warnick’s report because some of her conclusions make her appear less biased than those of other “doctors” at Napa.

Also appearing in the list of reports are the reports from Dr. Simon Tan of Stanford, presented at the time of the “No Contest” plea in the last ditch effort to show that ayres’ alleged dementia had “grown worse” since the competency trial and his subsequent stint at Napa. The judge found that there was nothing new in Tan’s report to indicate that things had deteriorated, and in fact, she said that based on her observations of ayres over time and based on the analysis of entirety of the transcript from a very recent civil deposition, she did not feel that ayres had any change at all in levels of comprehension even dating back to early hearings BEFORE the first criminal trial.

Dr. Simon Tan, PsyD is just another in the line of shrinky-dinks duped by ayres – Perhaps Psychiatrists ARE more talented than Psychologists after all!


Issue Two: Juan Lopez, Deputy Sheriff and one time contender to replace Sheriff Munks via write-in ballot.


Hi! I'm San Mateo County Sheriff Munks: Happy Ending?
Hi! I'm Sheriff Munks; Happy Ending?
As you’ve probably seen in the fishwrappers lately (links to recent articles below), Juan Lopez, a Sheriff’s Deputy, was recently charged with crimes related to the supply of cell phones and drugs to a local prisoner. Charges were also just added relating to his place of residence as it relates to elections, misuse of election funds, etc.. The details are all a bit confused as others (corrections officers) were included in charges as were Lopez’s fiancée, and another Lopez friend or two.


Here are some facts as best I can make them out:

1) There does not appear to be any link between Lopez and the drugs provided to the prisoner. These charges appear to be directed at one or more of the corrections officers.
.
2) The DA appears to have stated that Lopez didn’t supply the cell phone to the prisoner. But the DA does think that Lopez had reason to know that one had been supplied to a prisoner.

3) Lopez appears to have ownership/financial responsibility for a residence inside San Mateo County (Redwood City) and one outside SMCO (Newark) Lopez claims that the Newark residence is rented to a cousin, and the DA states that Lopez’s fiancée lives in the residence in Redwood City. Fraud charges relate to the assumption that Lopez lives in Newark, but he filed to run as Sheriff (against his boss Munks) as a resident of SMCO. (What do you suppose the odds are that Lopez lives with his cousin rather than his fiancée? -- I know it's a legal point, but to some extent, aren't we reaching here?)

4) Embezzlement charges apparently relate to Lopez’s campaign treasurer (and fiancée) who allegedly used campaign finances for personal use.

My observations:

1) Sheriff Munks was busted by the FBI in 2007 with his undersheriff Carlos Bolanos in an illegal Las Vegas brothel in which some underage prostitutes were involved. Munks has never spoken publicly about the bust other than to say that he thought he was getting a massage, and that he would not be talking about the incident. There was an “actual” massage parlor down the street from where Munks and Bolanos were busted, but the place of the “Operation Dollhouse” bust was actually a residential area, described by the FBI this way: "run-down apartments and homes with mattresses on the floors and the stench of cigarettes, urine and feces in the air"

2) DA Fox at the time of the bust issued an email stating that he sympathized with Munks and Bolanos: 
“Greg and Carlos [--] "I just want to let you both know how sorry I am for what you are going through with the media frenzy. It isn't easy getting beaten up in the media, but hopefully it will all be yesterday's news by tomorrow, If there is anything I can do to help or provide support, please know I am more than willing. Hang in there. Jim”  

3) Current DA Wagstaffe is also “in support” of Munks and in recent articles calls him his “friend.” Wagstaffe also states that he considered his relationship with Lopez to be friendly in his years of dealing with him professionally. As a follow-up to DA Fox's email, Wagstaffe also sent an email to the boys:
“To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not in the slightest marked (sic) by the modern media's efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think now, remember it will by yesterday's news and irrelevant by tomorrow”  
* The emails from DA Fox and ADA Wagstaffe (Now DA) were provided to private citizen and victim's advocate Michael Stogner by San Mateo County Counsel Michael P. Murphy per Stogner's Public Record Request in June of 2008.

UPDATE: On February 23, 2015 in an interview on KTVU Channel 2 News at 10, Wagstaffe confirmed that he did indeed send this email back in 2007, and stated that he stands behind it to this day, and seconds later talked about prosecuting Lopez because it was right to do that when someone breaks the law...

4) Wagstaffe says that his friendship with Munks is no reason to recuse his office from prosecution.

5) When Chief Probation Officer (and longtime juvenile hall employee) Stuart Forrest was busted for possession of large quantities of little boy child porn, Wagstaffe recused his office from prosecution based on their professional relationship – he didn’t even claim to be friends: 

“We asked to avoid the appearance of a conflict. We do not have one but I have served on so many different commissions and committees with him that we want to ensure the appearance of impartiality. That is why we asked an outside agency, the attorney general, to handle it"

My opinions based on presented facts and observations listed above:

Wagstaffe is good friends with a man (Munks) who was busted for apparently reprehensible, illegal sexual behavior -- and was apparently not prosecuted due to his political stature -- inside sources say that all of the Johns had to be released because of Munks' and Bolanos' involvement.

Wagstaffe does appear to have the wherewithal to make intelligent decisions about allowing outside investigation/prosecution when there is potential for professional/personal bias, as indicated by the Forrest case.  And yet, he claims that there is no reason for outside involvement in the Lopez matter, even though Lopez tried to put Wagstaffe’s buddy Munks out of a job, in part because Munks disbanded the special sex crimes unit shortly after his bust, which Lopez seems to have thought was important.

Seems exactly like conflict of interest / personal bias, and retaliation to me. I would NOT be shocked to learn that all of these charges against Lopez were, in fact, trumped-up, unsubstantiated bullshit intended to send a warning to anyone trying to oust Munks.

Another thing to think about:

Wagstaffe never once appeared in the courtroom during the 6 years that the ayres child molestation case was at trial.

Wagstaffe wanted nothing to do with the prosecution of Stewart Forrest for possession of hundreds of child porn images.

Wagstaffe supports his friend Munks who was busted at an illegal brothel that was employing child “prostitutes.”

Wagstaffe constantly declares that lowball sentences for child sex crimes are “reasonable.”

When an older adult male rapes a young teen girl, Wagstaffe frequently calls this a “sexual relationship” in comments to the press.

Why does Wagstaffe keep doing all of this? Maybe Spokeshole Michelle Durand can tell us what the county’s “story” here is?

San Mateo County Gets New Spokes-Hole

SMCO Spokes-Hole
According to San Mateo County's website (pdf), the County has hired a new spokes-hole to help them develop "communications strategies for a wide variety of projects and initiatives and identifying new ways to help San Mateo County deliver its goals of collaboration and transparency."

She is Michelle Durand, long time reporter with the San Mateo Daily Journal; a paper which has long seemed to be skeptical of our criticisms of San Mateo County's handling of some of the more controversial sex crimes cases against former County employees and contractors, and which appears to routinely use tear-sheets from the County District Attorney as the basis for accurate reporting, rather than digging into the stories directly.


Michelle tells us that she has "spent nearly 14 years telling San Mateo County’s stories and this position is another opportunity to continue doing so."

Bad Justice - Marta Diaz

Bad Justice:

The San Mateo County Court has re-appointed Judge Marta S. Diaz (pdf) to the Juvenile Court after having removed her as a justice of that court several years ago.

Some highlights from Judge Diaz’s bio: 

Diaz appointed Stuart Forrest to the head of the Probation Department after Forrest's long history of working with youth in San Mateo’s juvenile justice system. Recently, Stuart was found guilty and convicted of being in possession of hundreds of pornographic and sadistic images of young boys.  Here’s what Diaz had to say in a county news release about Stuart at the time she appointed him to head of the probation department: "I've known Stu for a very long time. His modesty and leadership skills are only exceeded by his ability and integrity."

Diaz also was a significant figure in the career of convicted child molester william hamilton ayres:

Diaz is observed to have been personal friends of the ayres family, and was responsible for referring many young boys to ayres for “evaluation” during her career in the DA’s office and as a judge. (Note that there were OTHER judges who also referred cases to ayres; many of whom have expressed regret for having done that).  In spite of the fact that at least four reports claiming sexual abuse had been filed (pdf) with the county between 1987 and 2002, and, in spite of the fact that Diaz was aware of the investigation by police who were building their criminal case against ayres, she continued to refer boys to ayres for “evaluation” for another fifteen months. Convicted child molester william ayres himself testified that this was so in depositions given in 2004.

Further, Diaz is reported to have tried to get the police to stop investigating ayres, claiming that she and ayres were very good friends. More than two decades ago, it is said that a defense attorney for a young boy told Diaz (then a prosecutor) that his client had been molested by ayres. Diaz denied that that could be happening, that she knew ayres well.

In March 2009, Diaz was asked about these claims by reporter John Roemer of the Daily Journal, and she responded that certain private citizens have a little “jihad” against her – She said: “I don’t care. I know it’s all bullshit. All will come out.”  (Yup, you stupid bitch – the truth did "all come out", and your sick-fuck friend is rotting in jail.)

After making the above statement to the press -- and shortly after the conclusion of review and action on a complaint filed with the Commission on Judicial Performance -- Diaz was removed from the Juvenile Court and reassigned. 

I guess the San Mateo County Court feels that now that people are no longer focused on her extraordinarily poor judgment, they can put Diaz back to work making devastating decisions for the county’s youth.

Get your Head Checked

Phineas Gage

If you've heard about "Operation Dollhouse" and you voted for the re-election of Sheriff Munks in the June 2014 election, then you should know that it's well past time to have your head checked. 

Go ahead and schedule that CT-Scan with your neurologist; there's at least an off chance that the progression of the damage can be abated.

Lopez, Stogner, De Paula and more!

Election Day is nearing.

The Mercury News(pdf) has refused to endorse incumbent Sheriff Munks, and instead has recommended Write-In Candidate Juan Lopez.

Even though Lopez is new to the political scene, according to the Merc, "He has worked patrol, jails, gang investigations, sex crimes unit, community policing and inmate transfers" in San Mateo County since 1987. Additionally, Lopez launched the San Mateo County Sheriff's office community policing unit. I feel that it is significant to note that Lopez is championing bringing back the County's sex crimes unit -- Something that the current sheriff discontinued due to "budgetary concerns" a few years after being busted by the FBI in the "Operation Dollhouse" raid on an illegal brothel said to be employing underage prostitutes. (For which no apparent investigation of Munks happened, and for which Sheriff Munks has never clarified for the public, beyond saying that he wasn't going to talk about it...)

The Mercury News reports that Munks refused to come in for an endorsement interview, "noting in his response that he is "running alone on the ballot.""

Michael Stogner and Mark De Paula have both spent some time during their campaigns pointing out the importance of writing in Juan Lopez. If you are in Stogner's (District 3) or De Paula's (District 2) voting district, you should thank them for calling attention to the Munks issue by voting for them as your County Supervisor!

NOTE: To vote for Juan, (and you should) you need to select the "Write-In Candidate" option, and fill in the name "Juan Lopez."


----- On different tack, but one not completely unrelated: -----

On June 14, 2014, USA Swimming is slated to induct executive director Chuck Wielgus to the "International Swimming Hall of Fame"

Many victims of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of swimming coaches within the organization have stated that Wielgus has in many of the cases helped to quash knowledge of these abuses from spreading, acting to protect the abusers; much as bishops and cardinals in the Catholic church have downplayed or covered up abuses in order to protect the organization.

These victims have started a petition that is worthy of your signature, asking that this induction into the "International Swimming Hall of Fame" not occur.

You can read a story about the matter on Yahoo.
You can read and sign the petition on change.org.

My Election Recommendations

De Paula, Lopez, and Stogner
The upcoming Election on June 3, 2014 gives us three opportunities to positively change politics in San Mateo County.

Generally I hesitate to make recommendations on how, and for whom people should vote, as I tend to piss people off with my angry, biased, and too-frank comments.

But, as all of the local papers have made their ill-advised, County-Mouth-Organ recommendations, I figured I’d make some recommendations of my own, and hope that you’ll vote for these good folks in spite of how miserably intolerable I am….

Vote for Mark De Paula for County Supervisor in District 2, Vote for Michael Stogner for County Supervisor in District 3, and WRITE-IN Juan Lopez (deputy Sheriff) for the office of Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Read more...

Sheriff  (For voters in ALL San Mateo County Districts):

The current Sheriff (Sheriff Greg Munks) is running uncontested on the ballot. (He’s the only candidate listed.) Munks was busted along with his Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos in Las Vegas in 2007 in an FBI sting at an illegally operated brothel that was using underaged, possibly trafficked prostitutes.

Munks with his scholarship recipients.
Munks and Bolanos were released, and have never spoken publicly about their status, other than Munks’ comment: “I believed I was going to a legitimate business -- it was not. (I won't) be answering any more questions or talking about this anymore in the future..” (Even though the brothel was at a private residence, not a massage parlor, and prostitution (adult) is not legal in that part of Nevada. Authorities describe the location (pdf) this way: "run-down apartments and homes with mattresses on the floors and the stench of cigarettes, urine and feces in the air") A credible source has indicated that the ensnarement and release of Munks and Bolanos  poisoned the sting operation, resulting in the release of other men who were there to take advantage of sex slaves -- some of whom were underage. Two of the several people running the brothels were convicted and received suspended sentences. Bolanos said that he didn't go in, he was just waiting in the limo; as there was no apparent investigation, I suppose we can either assume Bolanos is either lying or telling the truth.

Sometime subsequent to this (2010), the Sheriff disbanded the County Sex Crimes Division citing budgetary concerns, in spite of the fact that the San Francisco Peninsula is one of the most significant areas of rampant trafficking activities in the entire country.

An article in the Palo Alto Daily Post has documented a recent incident that occurred in a public venue in which Mark De Paula (running for District 2 County Supervisor) asked Sheriff Munks what his status was with regard to the “Operation Dollhouse” sting. Munks’ reply was to suggest to an officer with him that De Paula “probably doesn't belong here.” The other officer escorted De Paula out so that they could “discuss” De Paula's undesirable presence.

Munks is clearly not the guy who should be in charge of investigating trafficking crimes or sex crimes against children.

Write In: Juan Lopez (Website, Video Statement, Mercury News (pdf)): Fortunately, there is a formal write-in campaign for Juan Lopez. Look around – you’ll see his flyers posted in the local Starbuck’s etc…

His name won’t appear on the ballot, but HE IS a REAL and viable candidate. Just write his name in on the write-in line rather than voting for Munks.

Juan Lopez is, and has been, a hard working Sheriff’s Deputy in San Mateo County for many years. Here are just a few points from his platform. Lopez has said that he wants to run a clean campaign, and indeed, does not appear to have spoken ill directly of Sheriff Munks, but he has made clear his intention to run things a bit differently:

Analysis of Crime Trends
Currently there is no crime analyst or sustained analysis of crime trends in the County. I will change this by creating a full time position to direct the resources of the county efficiently and inform you of crime trends which need to be address.

Protect Against Sex Crime
Currently there is no sex crime unit at the Sheriff's Office. It was disbanded several years ago. This decision was short-sighted and flies in the face of reality on the ground, with approximately 300 such cases received a year by this office. Not to mention the need to pro-actively monitor sex registrants in our jurisdiction. I will change this, restore and fully staff the unit - to protect our children.

Protect Against Domestic Violence
Currently there is no dedicated domestic violence unit. I will change this and fully resource what county leaders have already identified as an important issue.


District 2 County Supervisor:

The incumbent is Carole Groom. Carole was very recently caught in a significant lie with regard to the protection of Sam Trans accounting whistleblower Ling La, who was terminated after she reported hundreds of thousands of dollars in accounting discrepancies. (Mercury News (pdf))

This kind of behavior is reprehensible, and Carole should not be re-elected.

Vote Mark De Paula (Website): Fortunately, De Paula (The very same guy who was trying to get to the bottom of Sheriff Munks’ bust detailed above) is running against Carole Groom. Mark IS on the ballot, so just tick the box next to his name if you're a voter in District 3.

Mark has been a longtime resident of the area – he grew up here. He’s promising to serve only one term, and is for transparency, independent oversight and auditing, and balanced budget, among other things.

District 3 County Supervisor:

Vote Michael Stogner (Website, YouTube) who is running against incumbent Don Horsely.

Stogner is a long time victim’s advocate and taxpayer advocate, and champion of removing corruption from local government. He was one of the first people that I can recall to really call attention to Munks’ misbehavior in Las Vegas, and question his current status, as well as question why the County's District Attorney  in communication with Munks about the issue would call it a non-issue, and that it would all blow over.

Stogner’s platform includes focus on elimination of corruption in San Mateo County government, as well as many critical budget reform oriented goals: balanced budget, pension reform, etc... as well as  elimination of prosecutorial misconduct, single-point database for whistleblowers, and many other good and necessary reforms.

Go read his website and watch his position videos; you'll see that he is motivated to serve the people of this county, and serve them with integrity and passion and respect. 



VOTE Mark De Paula District 2 County Supervisor
VOTE Michael Stogner District 3 County Supervisor
WRITE IN Juan Lopez for Sheriff

San Mateo County - Come have sex with our Children!

Sick Fuck
San Mateo County: "Come have sex with our children!"  (the Allan Wayne Meaney Edition)

According to the San Mateo Daily Journal (pdf) This perverted sack of shit just got sentenced to some prison time for the (plead) crimes of Felony indecent exposure and child annoyance.

He was out on bail (for masturbating in front of a 6 year old girl and her mom) when he was apprehended for hanging out near and flirting with 9 year old girls and such...

Because he has a couple of other prior offenses, he was eligible for special 3-Strikes treatment: potentially life in prison. Fortunately (for the twisted freak) the San Mateo County Courts tossed that silly notion, and with (I imagine... I wasn't there...) less than convincing objection by the DA otherwise, the Court saw fit to go with the maximum 8 years in prison deal...

Let me list for you his convicted offenses so far:

288(a) Lewd or Lascivious Acts with a child under 14 years of age.
288(b) Prior Code -- Lewd or Lascivious Acts with a child under 14 years of age by force or fear.
288(c) Oral Copulation with a minor under 14 years of age by force or fear.
647a Prior Code - Annoy or Molest a child (with priors)
288 Prior Code - Lewd or Lascivious Acts with a child under 14 years of age.
647a Prior Code - Annoy or Molest a child under 18 years of age.

According to the Daily Journal, a State of California detention facility has labeled him to be a "Mentally Disordered Sex Offender," a label which has since been replaced with the label: "Sexually Violent Predator."

San Mateo County, in their careful consideration, sentenced the "Sexually Violent Predator" to "nearly" seven years in prison (So.. that would be SIX years, San Mateo Daily Journal...) with 756 days of  credit -- that would be MORE than TWO years of credit (In case the Daily Journal needs some math help...) for time served.

So, let's see: Three Strikes Candidate, Sexually Violent Predator label,  CONVICTED (God only knows how many were NOT convicted) for count them: (one, two, three, four)... FOUR priors. with a chance to get the established repeat offender off the street forever, and San Mateo County leaps at the chance to put him in jail for:

Maybe 3 years by the time you give him all of the time off credits..

DA Steve Wagstaffe (who will be running UNCONTESTED for DA again) called this:

"a good outcome."

Uh... good for who, exactly? Whose side are you on, Stevie Baby?

San Mateo County: Come have Sex With Our Children!

Sunday, March 2, 2014


San Mateo County's District Attorney has generally run against no opponent, for many, many years.
San Mateo County needs a fresh perspective for its District Attorney Office. The deadline for filing for candidacy for the Office of District Attorney, to run against the current DA Steve Wagstaffe is drawing near.

San Mateo County needs a DA who will not be lax in prosecuting sexual crimes against children, as the current DA's record  proves. We need a DA who will prosecute child molesters to the fullest extent of the law, rather than allowing sex offenders to avoid registration, and serve overly short jail sentences.

We need someone to run who has compassion for the LAW ABIDING citizens of the County of San Mateo, and who won't bow to the wishes of the powerful and wealthy criminals in our midst.

We need to have a candidate who will truly "seek justice and accountability for all who violate the law in our county." and  "also seek to provide assistance for those victimized by criminals."


We need a person of compassion, action, and understanding.
