This was predictable, the Board of Supervisors have been notified and warned for at least 10 years about the corruption at the highest level of the District Attorneys Office. I personally have been with three citizens who spoke about this subject to the board on this subject over the years.
Lurker, brings up an excellent point, and it is pretty simple to understand. Steve Wagstaffe didn't tell the truth to the reporter, The Supervisors couldn't care less.
Wagstaffe said the district attorney's office itself didn't have anything to do with the Public Administrator program,
A murder conviction case was reversed because of Mr. Wagstaffe's personal behavior, here is what one of three Judges said about him.
Hon. Judge Marsha Berzon " The prosecutor's (Steve Wagstaffe) asserted concern about objectivity was not an actual reason for his decision to strike (the juror), but was pretext,"
a reason given in justification of a course of action that is not the real reason....
Most of us ordinary citizens would consider pretext and lie to be the same.
