The astoundingly stupid report by the Attorney General's office, supposedly showing that Mayor Jerry Sanders is not corrupt, may put AG Jerry Brown in San Diego headlines for some time. (Can you imagine what would happen if every time one metro politician called another corrupt, the AG would come in to issue a report? In a state that is basically broke?) Why did the AG's office do such a dumb thing? Was it a favor for Brown's wife, Anne B. Gust, a director of Jack in the Box since 2003? (I doubt it, but who knows?) She is an unpaid special counsel in the AG's office with a broad mandate to reorganize the place, which must be a zoo if wants to referee political polemic in every town in the state. Gust is a former honcho of The Gap and a lawyer with a couple of law firms with important San Diego connections, including Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe. Another Jack board member is Michael E. Alpert, husband of liberal former state legislator Dede Alpert.

I want to know how the police chief was able to circumvent the Sunroad search warrant by checking with Sanders before he carried out the court order. It gave Sunroad a chance to hide the evidence. Isn't that obstruction.

Do all of Sanders contributors get that kind of service from the Mayor? Sanders is a crook. This is like checking out the mob connections to Waste Management. It is not a real healthy occupation.

If Aguirre has the guts or the stupidity to go after these guys I wish him the best.

Response to post #6: Neither Sanders nor Lansdowne was ever going to be charged in San Diego. The Incest Preservation League dominates society. Best, Don Bauder

Perhaps you missed Aguirre on KUSI last night saying that he (and presumably his office) was going to spend night and day investigating the investigation? With all the money the City has? And his demand that the AG appear on KUSI to respond to his critique?

And why no comment on Aguirre not even responding to the AG's office when they wanted to talk to him?

Another question: if the AG's report had determined that the Mayor was corrupt, would you be as critical of it, or would you be saying, see, Mike was right! And now we have an unbiased report backing those allegations up!?

For the record, I am not a fan of Sanders, but your bias regarding any criticism (or perceived critism as the case sometimes is) of Aguirre and his minions is ridiculous.

Response to post #1: Somebody should investigate how the AG's office got involved in this goofy thing. I don't think it should be the city attorney's office. I think Aguirre was within his rights not responding, because the whole thing was a dumb use of public funds and the outcome was foreordained. This study was never going to say the mayor was corrupt. See previous sentence. Best, Don Bauder

I said it when it happened, Sanders was guilty of obstruction of justice- PC 148-and he was lucky he was not charged.

Response to post #5: It is specifically illegal to make the contents of a search warrant known. The police chief refused to carry it out and then made sure the mayor knew about it. Then it was leaked to the U-T. Yes, it gave Sunroad a chance to hide the evidence. Also, it gave Sunroad time to negotiate a deal with Sanders; Sunroad's CEO had given heavily to Sanders and had sponsored a big fundraiser for him. Then the judge got Tom Story off the hook and law enforcement sat on its hands, making sure justice would never be done. It is a sordid tale, but typical of San Diego. Best, Don Bauder
