Here's something to consider which indicates that the San Mateo County DA's office is not independent of the Sheriff's Office.

Back in 2007, Sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos were caught in a FBI raid of an underage prostitution house in Las Vegas, a.k.a. "Operation Dollhouse".

DA Wagstaffe wrote the following to Munks once the media started reporting on this travesty:

"To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media's efforts to make a story out of a non-story."

This was a hovel in which underage women were being kept against their will as sex slaves.

Is that comment really the reaction of an independent criminal prosecutor?

Come on.

It is the comment of a corrupt DA, which is what we have.
