Does “public service” include fronting a Judge for re-election who fixed her own red light ticket? Ariadne Symons was aggressively promoted by Fred Keeley (in my opinion, to redirect public opinion from looking at proof of corruption) for re-election in 2020 until Annrae Angel announced her challenging candidacy. Symons soon withdraws—even with her Keeley-hustled brand name support and endorsements. Leader Keeley moves on, no questions asked, like it never happened.

“The Double-Plaque Cover-Up of the Santa Cruz County D.A.” 9-4-17. Some core documentation: DA cited in accident, Victim cries foul in crash probe, Resolution #114-95.

“Find a way to disqualify the Recall,” said then-District Attorney Art Danner to Santa Cruz County Clerk Richard Bedal in 1995. “I can tell you this now,” said the former County Clerk to me at a memorial service we serendipitously attended December 29, 2016 for Carolyn Busenhart, more than 21 years after the fact.

“I just want to find 11,780 votes,” said then-President Donald Trump to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

“It doesn’t matter what the truth is, it’s who discredits whom.” I heard that from two different sources that couldn’t have possibly known each other. There is neither morality nor virtue, there is only appearance. I will open up as provoked about a former Santa Cruz County Chief Deputy D.A., who later became the D.A. in Lake and then in Humboldt County, who blatantly lied to the Santa Cruz Sentinel about me in 1994 and got away with it. It took the blessed Sentinel 6 DAYS to run a puny correction. The damage was done. They didn’t care about me or the truth. I was expendable. Truth was/is their casualty.
