Two races are going to go to November in #MontereyCounty. The Sheriff's race and the D2 County Supervisor Race.

A number of people are making money and enabling to corrupt/sleazy candidates - Joe Moses and Kimbley Craig. They are functionaries of the Panetta machine. I gave

Leon Panetta a lot of wiggle room over the years as he slowly revealed that he isn't into Monterey County politics for the greater good. Leon is into MoCo for the benefit of a select few and those interests reach DC and, unfortunately, beyond.

Moses and Craig are

obviously benefactors of the Panetta net. Look at their donors - it's the same people every time. The same people who backed Steve Bernal - a 12 year deputy with an apple pie look. He even plays guitar on the weekends. Dennis Donohue, in his sordid run to unseat Jane Parker.

.@MCoSheriff has the same problem x10.

Run by a crooked Deputy turned Sheriff in 2015, @SheriffBernal should be deported. 😂

"The state Fair Political Practices Commission this month agreed to open investigations into two complaints filed by Schneider. One accuses the Monterey County Counsel’s Office of improper partisanship. We’ll get to that one in a bit."…

"Over the past year, his research has revealed an apparent pattern of campaign law violations throughout Monterey County and an unwillingness by local authorities to take action"…

Imagine un país donde los políticos son tan corruptos que no tienen que ocultar, digamos, a los Kevin DeLeon de su mundo, sin importar lo que piense el @FBI.

Here was the thing with Dennis Donohue as Mayor of Salinas. He was a terrible Mayor. Even Joe Gunter, the current Mayor of #Salinas, was running around investigating Donohue for some crime or walking on crime scenes without permission.

He played fast and loose with the rules

He sent Kelly McMillin a “police officer” over to the #Salinas #Californian (it was a daily paper at the time) to threaten them with zero #transparency if they didn’t stop writing mean articles about Dennis, but more importantly, his buddy Bruce”Troll” Taylor.

Donohue made space for Bankers Casino, a future card room owned by a guy he was on the planning commish with - in a bizarre property transaction - with some deal made over dirt lots on Division St (probation was all abuzz about this, because ...)

He brought #Salinas

Potter is an elected official who has access to millions of dollars - but as the @MontereyHerald reported - when @JoeLivernois & @Calkins_Royal were in charge - he wasn’t a great businessman.

But LH set up a trust to help him get his Casa in the CCBTS. Easy.


Now his job, when he isn’t performing his duties as Mayor of #Carmel, is lobbying for the billion dollar #marijuana business.

Convenient. Friends in #high places.

@mcgreevy99 has written extensively (@latimes) about the 420 industry and allegations of #publiccorruption
