After the fall

As last week’s losing ballot propositions went down to the wire, the list of political losers began to mount. Among them, San Diego district attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who showed up on a list of those endorsing Props 1A and 1B. A Republican, Dumanis’s future attempts at higher office in GOP primaries may be severely hindered. One politico who probably doesn’t care is Bill Kolender, who also endorsed 1A and 1B, according to the website of the “Yes on 1A and 1B, Repay and Protect Our Schools” committee.

Glad a message was finally sent by voters. But sad it had to take an expensive and poorly scheduled election to get the disillusionment to the Sacramento crowd.

The government gyrations to be made after voters rejected those measures may be most curious.

There are little-used and little-known provisions in the California Codes that may require dusting off... especially as parts of the state militia are moving between California and overseas deployments.

Any members of the Governator's senior miltary staff care to comment on any legal authority to seize parks, schools, prisons, and other state property for re-directing their use as the militia commander-in-chief so directs, in the interests of "safeguarding and protecting the state"? (Wouldn't have brought this up if I didn't have a recent letter on Military Department stationery over some colonel's signature...)

Please, a2z, there's a big difference between implied and exercised powers. For all Ahnold's faults, he's not going to declare martial law and build fortresses in our schools. Wonder who wrote that alarmist letter. (Stationary is easily spoofed to make something look official.)

Bonnie, on the other hand, does have her eyes on higher positions in the government apparatus, and considering her disappointing performance here in San Diego...I hope she's disappointed.

We should be educating others about how she has overlooked serious political malfeasance, while simultaneously acting less than fair in her refusal to seriously investigate police abuses of authority during her tenure.

San Diego is famous for corruption now. Who has Bonnie brought to justice?

Oh. Right. Medical marijuana providers.

So, a2z, turn your considerable investigative and writing talents to more local and pressing matters. Such as how the city and county can reform itself so that it actually does the job without so much waste and abuse.

Best,

Fred
