Concerned Citizen Mark De Paula asking SMC Supervisors to withdraw Endorsement of Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018

Original post made by Michael G. Stogner, another community, on Mar 10, 2018

This Tuesday March 13, 2018 morning 9:00 AM in the Supervisors chambers.
Mr. De Paula is one of two citizens that I personally know who have recently received a long overdue response from the FBI per a CD-Rom titled Operation Doll House. Most people don't know it but went flew to Las Vegas in 2015 and spent 3 days looking for the truth about what really happened April 21, 2007 that caused the end of a 2 year sting operation.

Please come to the meeting or watch it on live feed, to support Mark De Paula

Apparently you have no problem with your Sheriff being caught in a whore house featuring under age girls. There are some of us who do. What's truly sad is that our elected leaders seem to feel as you do. Actually, it's not sad, it's disgusting.

I am concerned for your well being. Stay safe. Bolanos is not someone who does not fight back.

Thank you,

My information is from the F.B.I. and my statements at the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors is just the facts. This is directed only to appointed San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.
No allegations, just the facts from the F.B.I.
John Ullom is another concerned citizen, he has the same information.
The Supervisors have been shown in advance.
I am going to present the entire F.B.I. data ,and on page 12 & 13 is the information I am going to speak about.
Supervisor Dave Pine is the current President of the B.O.S.
When speaking to the B.O.S. the time limit is 2 minutes, Supervisor Pine has granted me 3 minutes.

Good job Mr. DePaula. Unfortunately, given my past observations of these peoples behavior and ethics, I doubt any of them will withdraw their endorsement. Why? Because they ALL already knew about Operation Doll House unless they've been living under a rock and they went ahead and endorsed Bolanos anyway.

San Mateo County, the most corrupt county in California.

As I stated before, I have 2,559 pages coming from the F.B.I. on OPERATION DOLLHOUSE. Five San Mateo County residents will be getting this data along with myself.

The Supervisors made No comment while Mark and I were in the chambers. Don Horsley couldn't help himself and at the 28:55 minute mark made a Pro Carlos G. Bolanos statement.

I spoke right after Mark gave an excellent presentation of his efforts as a private citizen to get to the truth for the last several years. I reminded the Supervisors that I had given them a 10 page document in June 2017 in public so that they couldn't deny knowledge of a female sheriff deputy asking me for help with upper management Sheriff Officers watching Porn on SMC Computers were she was forced to see because they would leave the photos on the screen for her to see. She also reported them sharing a Rape Video of an African woman. Carlos Bolanos was the UnderSheriff at that time.

The Supervisors are fine with this behavior.

If you are not ok with Abuse of power in your Sheriff's Office and top elected officials.

Vote out Carlos G. Bolanos and his number one enabler Don Horsley starting May 8, 2018.

That would start to make San Mateo County safer for the majority of residents aka Those who don't matter

Sounds like the #metoo movement hasn't caught up with members of San Mateo law enforcement. Perhaps Almanac can investigate that document Michael Stogner cites.

For all Endorsers of Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018 including elected officials in San Mateo County especially Mark Berman, Rich Gordon, Kevin Mullin, Jerry Hill. The residents of SMC are watching and counting the days since Mark De Paula has contacted you with his information received recently from the FBI.

The OLD News is that LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes who were both there working the Operation Dollhouse Sting publicly stated in April 2007 that Carlos Bolanos was inside the residence. Unfortunately no media in the county ever told the residents. If that information is not enough for you, remember when Carlos Bolanos was called by his son Mike to come to the Pioneer Bar in Woodside California and eliminate a Sheriff' Office Investigation involving him. Mr. Bolanos left his personal residence and eliminated any record of the alleged assault by the newly hired Mt. View Police Officer Mike Bolanos, who now works for the Burlingame Police Department. If you don't think that single action didn't affect the morale of the 700 good and honest Sheriff Deputies who are now the Victims of the Carlos Bolanos Gang, Think again.

This could be true for a lot of so called Endorsers of Mr. Bolanos.

I honestly was not aware he was placed inside until I saw the Depaula/Ullom posts re FBI the other day and read about Depaula at supes meeting. I knew about Munks. In any case, I should not have endosed even if he were outside the house. But I have to say I had been grateful for his help with a couple of hmb issues early last year when I informally said I would endorse him (never officially did so in writing).

Many of Harvey Weinstein's alleged assaults occurred decades ago. The Munks/Bolanos incident is fairly recent by comparison.

Do Cheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg know that the Sheriff of the County where their headquarters is situated was caught at a brothel with underaged trafficked girls? Can't imagine they would be Ok with it. Someone needs to educate them.

Thank you, Mr. Melville, for bravely running for sheriff in a county that, as you've pointed out, doesn't often bother to have such elections. Or when it does, the opponent for the incumbent is arrested on a boatload of trumped up charges, and his girlfriend is too.

Misbehaving in sexual matters (or just allegations thereof) may warrant not watching House of Cards unless such actor is fired, or not going to the opera or symphony unless such conductors are fired, but a sheriff going to an underage brothel doesn't make SMC citizens or a multitude of its elected officials bat an eye?

Melville's comments are articulate, intelligent, and enlightened. More transparency and accountability for law enforcement? Treating everyone with dignity and respect? Wanting the democratic process to play out for elected offices? Do these ideas have a place in this county?

We can only hope. There is a very curious disconnect between the very high education level here in San Mateo County and how this issue is being treated. It's really bizarre.

I said why? Carole's response was " Carlos is doing a good job". I said I would like to show you the FBI data that was sent to me on January 8, 2018. Carole's response was I will talk to to Carlos, and I said I have the FBI data. This conversation was by her private phone 6 weeks ago.

This front page of Endorsements for Carlos Bolanos for Sheriff 2018 says it all about most Elected Officials in San Mateo County. They all Know now thanks to Mark De Paula's efforts That UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos was Inside the Illegal Brothel that had Human trafficked Sex Slaves including a child.
He was detained as a Customer and they are all fine with that.

He should have been FIRED on the spot.

They are fine with the fact that in January 2011 UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos Obstructed Justice when he left his personal residence and interfered with a SMCSO Investigation involving his son at the Pioneer Bar in Woodside. The Palo Alto Daily Post had a front page story in it's Feb. 2, 2011 edition. "Undersheriff: Son victim in bar fight." by Ryan Thomas Riddle

Story is not online yet, but Half Moon Bay Review story is out on the Sheriff's race: "2 Law Enforcement Veterans Seek Sheriff's Race"

Excerpt: "Melville is calling for honesty and transparency in the Sheriff's office. He is critical of Bolanos' relative silence about a 2007 incident the FBI called 'Operation Dollhouse.' In the course of that investigation, Munks and Bolanos were briefly detained at an illegal brothel in Las Vegas.

"He actually lied about where he was," Melville said."They found him inside the house."

For his part, Bolanos refers to an earlier statement made by then Sheriff Munks indication [sic] that Bolanos was never in the establishment.

"I don't know that there's much to say about nothing that happened 11 years ago," Bolanos said.

___

"Nothing happened?" That's weird. Could have sworn that Bolanos was detained along with Munks. Incident and names of Munks and Bolanos were cited in a report funded by US Justice Department called " Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking- Las Vegas, Nevada' that faulted media for not mentioning that a 15 year old minor was found at the brothel

Incredibly arrogant and ill-advised comment from Bolanos. This is not going to go away

These sex slave women and children would be rotated from house to house, meaning sex slave brothel.
Per the Las Vegas Police Department-they do not charge johns, but LVPD charges the Prostitutes, in OPERATION DOLLHOUSE none of the women and children were charged, why? They were SEX SLAVES!

April 12, 2018, the show ABC NIGHTLINE. A 15 year old teen named Jessika was sold on the Web page BACKPAGE. Jessika now a young woman has a new life, and she feels she is a survivor.
New Federal Legislation has been signed on this day to prevent such SEX TRAFFICKING on the internet.
Sadly, this did not help the sex slaves (women and children) of OPERATION DOLLHOUSE. I believe the attention was hindered because these children and women of OPERATION DOLLHOUSE were not American Citizens, they were from Asia, Mexico, Central America and South America.
DOMESTIC MINOR SEX TRAFFICKING Las Vegas, Nevada-Report By Dr. Kennedy-States on Page 9 -column 4 ---Similarly, in April 2007, there was minimal local coverage in Las Vegas when the San Mateo County under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was found at an illegal brothel during Operation Dollhouse and allowed to leave the scene without arrest. Media seemed to accept without question the response when he stated that he thought the establishment, located in a private home in Clark County, was a “legitimate busines. Additionally, most media failed to highlight in their coverage of Operation Dollhouse that minors were also found among the prostituted women in one of the illegally operating brothels.
WHEN ARE THE CURRENT ENDORSERS OF CARLOS G. BOLANOS GOING TO REMOVE THEIR NAMES FROM HIS WEBSITE FOR SAN MATEO COUNTY SHERIFF -ELECTION JUNE 5, 2018. SO FAR THERE HAS BEEN 4 ELECTED OFFICIALS.

Have all San Mateo Board Supervisors been given a copy of "Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking- Las Vegas, Nevada" put out by Shared Hope International, and funded by a grant by the U.S. Department of Justice? They need to see Munks and Bolanos singled out and cited on Page 9 in the report, which notes that media did not report that MINORS were found at the brothel.

Bolanos's "I have nothing to say about nothing happened 11 years ago" statement is entirely insufficient for voters.

TO ALL SAN MATEO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS,
I request all 5 of you read page 9 column 4 of this report, it mentions our appointed current San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. Amazing that all 5 of you are endorsing Carlos G. Bolanos for San Mateo County Sheriff in the election June 5, 2018.
Sincerely,
Mark DePaula
District 2 resident of San Mateo County

Everyone needs to go to the Helf Moon Bay Review story on Bolanos and Melville and read the explosive comment by "wasserdamen" on what really happened during Operation Dollhouse. I suspect that the person who wrote it works at the San Mateo Sheriff's office: If true, just explosive. Hope there is a reporter out there with guts who can chase it down

Here it is.

Here is what you don't know.

There were four people in the limo that Munks and Bolanos took to the brothel at 3474 Eldon Street. Two of those Deputies went from Sergeant to Assistant Sheriff in a span of just a few years before retiring out. Their pay went from ~$130,000 to $220,000 per year in that short span of time.

Why did that limo become the most effective promotion tool in the history of the SMCSO?

Because not only was Munks in the bedroom and Bolanos near the front door when the raid happened, after being placed in handcuffs they both provided a fake ID to the LVMPD. When LVMPD could not identify them they took them downtown to holding.

While that was happening the other two Deputies who escaped the raid and one other female Lieutenant went to the Mandalay Bay to get Munk's and Bolanos's real ID before going to the station to bail them out. (Yes, we (and they) know who they are, just not saying here…)

Presenting a false ID in Nevada is a Class E Felony. When Munks and Bolanos provided a false ID hoping they would be let go they broke the law. They committed a felony. They were taken downtown, unlike the others caught in the sting, because no one knew who they were and their ID came back zero.

Conspiring to conceal a crime is a crime in California. Even a crime in Nevada. A crime everywhere.

Now you know why those two deputies in the limo and the Lt. who went to bail out Munks and Bolanos rocketed through the leadership structure of the SO until they retired after being third in command.

It’s the crime and the cover-up that should make any of the four horsemen and Bolanos ineligible to be a Sheriff or Deputy. If the County was less corrupt this would have been properly handled ten years ago. Instead County leaders, Including the DA and Sup Horsley looked the other way. They had to have heard the rumors, even if they didn't know the details.

It is past time to stop looking the other way.

Hey reporter’s!! Ask why they used forged ID and what they did after that. Ask who knew about the concealing of the use of fake IDs and the following trip to the holding tank. Ask Karen Hughes for the details!!

If you want proof of the promotion chain look at the employment history and compensation for recent Assistant Sheriff’s and work backwards.

And look at the top right now. One of the five (“The Dish”) is sitting there in plain view.

She knows everything.

Two women "at the top": Captain Alma Zamora and Captain Christina Corpus. My money is on Zamora. She's married to retired Assistant Sheriff Tom Gallagher. Easy to connect the dots.

So in 2017 Gallagher retired as Assistant Sheriff making $212,671 per year so that Jeff Kearnan could be promoted to Assistant Sheriff from Captain, making $214,185 a year, thereby leaving a Captains slot open for Gallagher's wife.

Kearnan then retires a year and a half later.

In 2012-2014 Gallagher went from Lieutenant to Assistant Sheriff in approximately a year and a half!

Kearnan went from Lieutenant to Assistant Sheriff in a little over two years.

Does everyone at the SO get promoted so quickly?

Speaking of social media misuse , why is the San Mateo Sheriff office Facebook page posting paid ads about themselves on the actual Facebook page? Who is paying for these paid ads? Bolanos election campaign? Or the County? Either way, there's something wrong and someone needs to investigate who or what that paid for these self promoting ads on content page of SMC Sheriff Facebook page

Under the Bolanos endorsement at the San Mateo Daily Journal in comment section, a commenter named "Citizen" wrote: ..." I dont think Mr. bolanos liked what was written in here, someone on Twitter got blocked by the Bolanos campaign for quoting word for word the text of this specific editorial to him."

The Residents are getting Involved, Somebody with a great e-mail list sent this to most elected officials yesterday.

Subject: Carols Bolanos and You

If you are receiving this email it is because you or a friend have endorsed a man who has either a) As a career lawman stood outside an obvious illegal brothel while his boss, the Sheriff of San Mateo County had sex with a probably minor sex-slave inside, or; b) Waited inside the brothel for his turn at the child sex-slaves while his boss was busy in one of the bedrooms.

There is no upside for you here. Add in the fact that it has now been alleged by an apparent SMCSO Deputy that Bolanos and Munks offered false IDs and were arrested and taken downtown before being bailed out by Gallagher, Kearnan and Sanchez and then add in the fact that the people who bailed them out appear to have been promoted ahead of grade and position up to the point of retirement as Assistant Sheriffs.

Carlos Bolanos is a toxic waste heap that is going to devour you if you remain supportive of him. Several smart local politicians have already pulled their endorsements of him. You must do the same or you risk deservedly and ignominiously going down with him in the fallout of your support for law enforcement officers who facilitated or solicited child-slaves in the service of their “needs.”

Dump Bolanos now. It is the only even remotely smart political choice you have. And announce it to the world when you do. Anything less and you risk being associated with Carols Bolanos forever.

On Friday, Mr. Bolanos Tweeted his thanks to the San Mateo Daily Journal for their endorsement. A short while later, a citizen posted this Tweet in response:

"Half the piece discusses your detention in an FBI sting at an illegal brothel " in decrepit condition, and had prostitutes there from other countries. An FBI report on the investigation provided to the Daily Journal reveals there was likely a juvenile involved."
__

Although the citizen had simply quoted the SMDJournal story verbatim, Mr. Bolanos immediately blocked them.

Yesterday, First Amendment activist Angele Greben, who sued San Mateo PD, San Mateo Mayor and city of San Mateo about their misuse of Twitter last year, and got them to comply, Tweeted about Bolanos's blocking the citizen and questioned his use of Twitter, suggesting he had misused it.

Not long after Greben Tweeted about Bolanos, Bolanos deleted his entire Tweet thanking the Daily Journal for their endorsement along with the Tweet from citizen quoting from the story. Citizen is still blocked at this point.

Unless we know who was part of this conversation- five, ten, people or more?,it's just an unverified "story." Person who said Bolanos said this, should speak to media. These kinds of things need to be verified.


Seems to me Bolanos sounds scared, not threatening.

A number of people have written to all of the Board of Supervisors, asking them to withdraw their endorsement of Carlo Bolanos. A number of people have written to Jackie Speier, asking them to speak out against Operation Dollhouse once again and to endorse Mark Melville.

It was Speier who blasted the Supervisors in 2016 for appointing Bolanos, 3-2 and she has NOT endorsed Bolanos.

Advocates could always use more people to contact Supervisors and Speier and Eshoo.

The Congresswomen wanted the appointment process opened up/started applications taken etc.. They had a favorite in mind.

Their silence proves they are not interested in the Residents choosing the Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Video of 2007 Channel 5 segment on Munks and Bolanos caught in Operation Dollhouse. Shows the sad young trafficked girls being led out in handcuffs; the filthy brothel where Bolanos and Munks were detained in the FBI sting; a neighbor describing the suspicious activities at the house "24/7" and how men paid limo drivers to take them to the brothel for a "happy ending."

Anyone considering voting for Bolanos needs to watch this. Pay attention to the trafficked girls.
