Good luck getting any followup before the election as Tony Rackauckas is more worried about Todd Spitzer than doing his job.
Just for the sake of perspective, this is the fourth most problematic power issue stemming from Fullerton that the DA has under investigation. Here are the three items that are more important than the Mayor’s Wife allegedly committing a crime to influence an election.
The DA is looking into Police Chief Hendricks for his antics at a Lady Antebellum concert. Allegations of battering an EMT.
The DA is looking into Police Captain Oliveras for his antics at that same concert. Allegations of battering an EMT.
The DA is pursuing charges against former FPD Sergeant Corbett for his falsification of the Felz incident. Felony charge of filing a false police report.
Which puts Mayor Chaffee’s wife’s potential Petty Theft at the end of this list. Keep in mind that if Doug Chaffee wins election to County Supervisor, he’ll have control over the budget used to investigate and procecute all four cases.
If that wasn’t enough, there’s no reason why the DA shouldn’t be looking into the alleged Pay for Play scandal involving Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva and her husband council-member Jesus Silva as alleged by Ahmad Zahra.
That’s a lot of corruption foe our little berg.
When Lord Acton said that power corrupts I didn’t think he was specifically writing it about Fullerton.
