I heard from the FBI three weeks ago!
Everything is just fine.
Who is your source "Deep Throat" and define what fine is ?
clearly the investigation is still under way. [Portion deleted. Discuss the topic, don't go after other posters, please.] ... have some patience. I've known FBI agents that spent FOUR years on an investigation. It took that long to interview everyone, develop who all the players were, interview them, etc., etc., etc. The FBI doesn't run on your schedule. [Portion deleted. Discuss the topic, not other posters.] You seem overly concerned about this invetigation that you think is baseless. If it is, you'll never hear another thing. [Portion deleted.]
Years ago the FBI was after my co-worker. Of course, none of us knew this. I was the closest to her & frequently gave her rides home & sometimes we socialized a little. You can imagine the surprise when the cops came a-knockin' at work & then did an undercover sting operation. However, she was likely tipped off & we didn't see her again. The FBI got involved & then, a couple years later, involved again doing follow up work. Actually, the orig agent was busted for something bad (I recall reading about it) & the f/u was a new agent on the case. But all told, even though they moved fast, they were crossing i's & dotting t's.
The other times I've dealt w/the FBI it was in longer-term cases as MV mentions above - figuring out the Who's Who in a case, tactics, strategy, crimes committed, etc. - it's complicated. They also have budgets, bureaucracy, red tape & their own way of doing things. When they have a lot of rocks to turn over, they also check out the surrounding flora & fauna, in my limited experience. It's a whole other playing field, so even if it's in familiar turf, it's a different set of rules & different rule-makers.
How odd that the FBI hasn't kept all of San Mateo about what they have discovered and the departments and offices of San Mateo County and government were manipulated by a handful of elected officials.
Maybe if you write their offices and ask if they are through investigating those who DID do bad things.
Rumor is in billions hidden and a sort of nepotism if the COUNTY OFFICIALS could be called "brothers and sisters" and things did move in favor of a special few. It is odd that nobody questions how so many terrible decisions were made in a long period before this recession. Investments from locals in places like Oakland and off shore monies. A few rich folk got taken by Madoff who did no favors for those who he undoubtedly has mentioned and are pissed off.
He falls in the cuckoo category as much as some important locals who might be a bit too comfortable.
