The full text of the FPPC's response to Tim Stoen's letter regarding "Raising Funds for prosecution of District Attorney Lawsuit Against Pacific Lumber Company." is included here as the first comment on this post.
While you read this, and the other posts detailing Gallegos and Stoen's efforts to fund the PL lawsuit, think about the important programs in Gallegos' office that have gone begging. Think about the services that have been lost. Think about the people who have lost their jobs in the Victim Witness Unit. Think about the jobs that could have been saved if one iota of this effort went into seeking grant funding for those positions and programs.
Think about Gallegos' claim to be "doing more with less."
Think about that as you see Gallegos planning concerts to raise funds to go after one business, see Stoen asking if he can contribute personally to fund a lawsuit he is prosecuting.
Maybe you'll agree with me that Gallegos claims of impartiality are patently false.
