“We used the money for what it was intended. We put all of our people back to work,” said Don Chapin Jr., president of the Don Chapin Co. “We provided work from home and multiple training opportunities. We did exactly what the (government) wanted us to" montereyherald.com/2020/07/09/cor…

DON CHAPIN and others are under @FBI investigation for their money dispensary - the @SVLGroup.

Who did SVLG pay as their on retainer consultant?

PLASHA WILL, @RepJimmyPanetta's consultant.

I wonder what sort of political pressure the FBI is under (we all know that

exists) from Leon Panetta (the most powerful politician in California and life long enabler of the mafia/OC)?

Leon Panetta and Monterey County is no stranger to manipulating the FBI. When young copper Sue Stryker arrested a now extinct FBI resident agent for DUI multiple

times in MoCo, then DA Flippo made Stryker his Chief investigator.

Leon sat on a budgetary committee that oversaw @FBI compensation. FBI agents are woefully underpaid compared to their $150,000 a $400,000 + local LEO counterparts. FBI requires a college degree - local

LEO's? They can be high school drop outs.

What was the faustian bargain? Diminished FBI presence in the region with a very small resident agent office that was once in Watsonville - next to a dinky Sundean Foundation office.

Why would our favorite local politician want to

keep the FBI out of the region?

And yet, no one has every asked this guy: Image

Congressman @RepJimmyPanetta,

Can you explain your relationship with Plasha Will and her relationship to Chris Marohn, his wife Megan, John Fickas & others?

What was their relationship to the Democrats in Monterey County, the Republicans in San Luis Obispo County and the RW? ImageImageImageImage

What was Plasha Will and John Phillips' role with "Californians for Law and Order PAC" which registered in San Benito County to hide their role in the Miller/Bernal 2014 Sheriff's race?

Did John Fickas, @SupervisorAlejo and Sergio Sanchez run phone banks using disposable

cell phones (as they were known to do for fmr. Supe. Lou Calcagno & fmr. #Salinas Mayor Dennis Donohue) later claiming they knew nothing about nada?

Do you see?

This isn't a great look for the incoming.

"Neither candidate seemed very interested in talking about the money that went into the campaign. McShane didn’t respond to an email, and Root Askew said only that she looks forward to serving her constituency." voicesofmontereybay.org/2020/11/20/the…

Wini Chambliss, the one Black, female candidate was frosted out by the local machine.

"[Alex Miller] said he and Wini Chambliss, the fourth candidate, spent a total of about $20,000. “We couldn’t compete,” he said."

#BlackLivesMatter , unless of course, they don't.

This should get a lot more play because Alex Miller is right on this issue.

“I really think that we need a limit on campaign contributions for county supervisor, like our neighbor county has,” Miller said.

Compare and contrast.

2006-2019 the MoCo DA (Dean Flippo) hired Tara Reade. Presumably they vetted her. (but this is a County that elected a low rank deputy, Sheriff - so.

Then, AFTER they get caught they "investigate" their expert witness.

Tara Reade started as a staffer

This is Leon Panetta.

There is a mountain of bad acts in Monterey County committed by the rich and powerful, as in every community.

What reality check are we really living in? The quick fix? We voted Trump out, ignore the rest?

How did we get to Trump?

... imagine Trump is as dangerous as we believe.

imagine he is more dangerous than Putin or the CCP.

imagine that blackmail material is a real thing, which shouldn't be too hard since we have been talking about something as dumb as Russian sex slaves urinating on him.

if you are a Californian - imagine all you know about @GavinNewsom (the morally bankrupt parts he always apologizes for, not the better things)

Imagine you are @RepJimmyPanetta who has been rolling around with some questionable investor types and other terrible sh••.

Now imagine you are a psychopath with the full force and weight of the US GOVERNMENT at your literal disposal. Imagine you are the guy who called a dictator "little rocket man" then met with him. Imagine cut throat ruthless.

Wonder what Trump's River card is?
