Grand Jury Report San Bernandino Style
So I was perusing Red County Blog earlier this afternoon and there was a lot of posts over at the San Bernadino Red County site. It turns out that there was a Grand Jury Report released today that drops the hammer on the Assessor's office out there. The office is held by Bill Postmus who
is was a rising star in the GOP out there. I've heard that he is angling for Rep Jerry Lewis's seat when Cong. Lewis retires(or is hopefully defeated one day). If this Grand Jury report is accurate, and I stress the word accurate, then Mr. Postmus will probably not be moving up the political food chain like he may have hoped. His right hand man Adam Aleman was arrested earlier today and charged with six felonies ranging from three counts of preparing false evidence and one each of offering forged or altered documents as evidence, and destruction of public records and vandalism over $400. I was also told that the no bid consulting contract for $49,200that was handed out in the report was given to Republican political consultant Mike Richman. The report asserts that hardly any work was done to justify this expense. These are very troubling charges. These guys are innocent until proven guilty, but my political nose smells trouble for the accused. At the very least, the San Bernadino County Assessor Bill Postmus should not be handing out sweet no bid contracts to political cronies. Who does he think he is, Larry Agran or something? It stinks. It's a horrible way to run a government operation. It saddens me because I know Mike Richman. So far the blogpen over at Red County SB have been very tight lipped about this story. That's not good enough. I can guarantee them that other people will pick up the slack if they don't step up and start writing about this story.
