Mercury News Endorses John Hirokawa

It appears pockets are empty this election in Laurie Smith’s closet and the Mercury News isn’t willing to further look the fool standing over someone’s body because of Laurie Smith’s established incompetence. Her political capital has been wasted over the last four years, as the DSA told you it would be. She had nothing left…

The State of Laurie Smith’s Internal Affairs

Recently the Mercury News launched a large scale piece covering the sexual harassment of a former Sheriff’s Deputy Gary Brady and the subsequent interference in the Internal Affairs case against the accused, then Assistant Sheriff Laurie Smith. Let’s set aside the sexual harassment charge, because there are disputes as to whether or not it happened.…

Are our memories that short? What she was then, is what she is now. Power doesn’t change people, it reveals them. At…

It’s always about the power, particularly the abuse of power. If anyone knows how to abuse power, it’s Laurie Smith. She could give PhD level presentations on the…

The Most Embarrassing Endorsement

I had to go see for myself if she would really put that endorsement on her page and wear it with pride (she has and is), if the CPOA membership would remain silent (they have) and if the media would raise the bans for this endorsement (they have not).  Interesting. So let me break the…
