Well, well, well… I got sent a copy of a Grand Jury Report attacking (DRUMROLL) Ron “Mik” the supervisor in El Dorado’s First District.

It just so happens that “Mik” is all that stands between termed out Beth Gaines and her next government paycheck. Cozy.

The Grand Jury Report starts out like a political hit piece:

Before he was elected, Mikulaco was not known for his background and qualifications, but best known for standing on El Dorado Hills Boulevard with a sign urging drivers to vote for him. At first, that Depression-era sandwich board tactic seemed ineffective to many. Yet, Mikulaco was elected in 2012.

I guess Grand Juries are not subject to the rules of the real jury system? Or, perhaps, they can engage in the same sort of shilling and yellow journalism that the Placerville paper is famous for?

Well – I started asking questions as to why I felt like I was looking at a campaign hit piece.

I poked around and found out the shocking details – Local mega-donor and wealthy El Dorado County Businessman Ken Steers is an actual member of the Grand Jury!

I can write with a high level of confidence that Steers and Gaines likely have each other on speed-dial. Heck, Beth may be renting one of Steers’ rental properties in El Dorado Hills!

What did Ken Steers do to influence the outcome of this “report”? It really does not matter what eeeeevil things “Mik” is alleged to have done according to the report. The fingerprints of Ken Steers should make anyone take pause – especially with his political conflict of interest and the unprofessional language that the report starts with.

It would be like me sitting on the Placer Grand Jury recommending the disbarment of Jack Duran for eating too many donuts.

Missing from the Grand Jury Report is any mention of the malicious prosecution of Dan Dellinger. Things that make you go hmmmm… I wonder if Steers and company are going to ignore the pending lawsuit(s) against Mr’s. Pierson and Harn?

I also hear that the fish is starting to spoil…

To be continued…

El Dorado County Sup D2 Update: Clair(no e) McNeal Gets Her Turn in the Pierson Gazette

Dear Lawyers and Thin-Skinned People, this is called political commentary and free speech, get over it. (Today, this disclaimer is atop the post)

Today’s edition of El Dorado Confidential features a threat from Local Political Figure and Donor Ken Steers:

Mr Park,
I just checked out your web site. I see you’re in Placer county. Yet you act as if you know me. I also see you’re a friend of Chris Alercon and you two exchange, corroborate stories between your two web sites.
You have made some seriously erroneous statements that have impugned my character.
Does your father know you are pulling this BS? You will be hearing from me directly shortly sir.

I am wondering if Mr. Steers is planning on funding Clair(no e) McNeal’s campaign? McNeal says she is self-funding to be free of other people’s influence, or something like that.

I read the drivel once before the subscription hammer dropped on the article.

Apparently, Ken Steers is now supporting Clair(no e) McNeal’s campaign as the above threat was delivered on a facebook thread on the article. I have no clue if Steers left the threat up there or if he pulled it down – I also have no clue if Steers intends to lavish large amounts of cash on McNeal like he has other candidates. (This practice is commonly referred to as “buying” a candidate)

As I sit here trembling in fear over all the horrible things Ken Steers could do to me – I went back to the article.

In it, it appeared that Clair (no e) McNeal was trying to pander to developers.

Also – Clair (no e) used the term drinking the Kool-Aid to refer to a group of anti-growth activists in El Dorado County. This is just plain stupid. (Maybe Clair (no e) McNeal will send me a nasty letter, too?)

I write stuff to piss people like Ken Steers off because I want to effect elections. I am not a candidate and never will be. Clair (no e) just made the previous criticisms I wrote about her award-winning personality much more valid with this amateur campaign blunder. You don’t deliberately piss people off if you’re a candidate!

It appears that Clair (no e) McNeal really is spending a ton of money – amounts on the order of what Ken Steers donated to the psychotic El Dorado County DA Vern Pierson in 2006 and a loser Sheriff Candidate in 2010.  (McNeal reported $17k+ in loans to her campaign).

Clair (no e)’s $17,000 in a small county supervisor race is a staggering sum of money.

I have strong aversion to candidates attempting to buy seats. I also have a strong aversion to donors attempting to do the same. $17k in personal money or chipping in between $20,000 and $53,000 in combined contributions in small-county races easily qualifies for the “attempting to buy the office ass-whuppin” from the Right on Daily Blog – no matter what the spin is.

Claire McNeal needs to lose badly and it seems like she is well on her way with her staffing decisions and her own words in the article. Ken Steers is doing her no favors with his apparent support of her.

Breaking News Update: El Dorado County Political Leader Ken Steers Gets Arrested for DUI

Ken Steers was at a wounded warrior event last night and appears to have had too much to drink.

Steers is a Past President of the El Do GOP, donor to Vern Pierson and was a leading critic of Sherriff D’Agostini. According to several sources, Steers is also supportive of the rampage by Vern Pierson against Supervisor Ray Nutting.

Pictured here is the snippet from the website.

Steers appears to have been in the lockup for about 8 hours.

With the ongoing rampage against political enemies by El Dorado County DA Vern Pierson, all eyes will now be on the department to see if Mr. Steers is prosecuted as aggressively as El Dorado County does other DUI offenders.

… something about tossing stones in glass houses?
