FROM CARONA CHRONICLES

5/16/2006 10:00:31 PM

Since the topic of mailers came up, I received a mailer for Mike Carona. It said that Sheriff Carona "is the only candidate who has implemented a plan to deport illegal aliens." Correct me if i'm wrong, but A) the Sheriff hasn't implemented a plan, and B) Isn;t that the very issue that the sheriff ordered an immediate investigation of in RSM.

Come on, Skippy. What exactly do you want. And don't reply with the obvious "votes". You are such a deceitful piece of craparona.

PSR's with guns and badges
Charlie Gabbard, felon, bribery, misuse of county resources
Master-Yi
Illegal campaign contributions
Money laundering and tax evasion
Organized crime connections (with pictures!)
Television series scam/misuse of County resources

The below post from amother blog is part of an on-line discussion of how the current Sheriff's administration demands education for consideration of promotion to sergeant and lieutenant. They even factor it into the formula. Yet for captain and Assistant Sheriff there is apparently not only a double standard but much lower standards. Uncanny.

"I too have had the same experience with other agencies. Many of us have gone after our Masters here. Why?

What a waste of money and time away from family and for what? An Assistant Sheriff and new Captain with high school diplomas as their highest education.

Carona lies when he tells us what we need to promote in this department. All you need is to bow to him and you are in.

The growing trend is more and more people who do not and will not promote under this man. Style over substance never lasts."

Confused in the Big Orange

So help me out here anon poster(s). Does this mean you are supporting or opposing Mike Carona.

Ralph Martin has been quietly behind the scene gaining ground while Carona loses weight and Hunt/Whittacre file into court on meaningless lawsuits because it's the only way to get publicity.

The Lewis group knows America's Sheriff is vulnerable and his 50% plus one vote is not going to occur.

When the TV adds hit for Martin, he'll easily pass Hunt and force Carona into a fall runnoff. He might even take it June 6th!

Who would Lewis etal rather face in the fall? Whittacre the genius consultant or John Shallman?

Martin will not only get the Dem vote, but Hunt's and all the anti Carona voters. It could be a long hot summer for Carona. Fortunately, the court rooms have air conditioning!

Don't make me Ralph

Ralph who?

Is that the guy that has been in LA Sheriff's dept. for over 30 years now, but is not runnig for Sheriff in LA???

Is that the guy that Capt. Ken Masse, a retired fellow LA Sheriff Deputy with 30+ years experience, who is running for Sheriff in LA, declined to endorse in this race and instead has endorsed Lt. Bill Hunt for OC Sheriff???

I thought so...

Where's the proof that Martin is gaining ground? He may be ramping up his campaign, but that doesn't necessarily mean anyone is paying attention.

Right now he's just a guy with a dream. He damn well knows he can't beat Lee Baca, and I'm guessing he's decided to make a run down here cuz he thinks Carona is vulnerable.

Opportunist or carpetbagger? Hmmmm

Part of an article from the online story in the OC WEEKLY that came out today. There's some reproductions of some cards reportedly authored by Carona in the WEEKLY:

The card, depicting a female bunny in underwear, includes the message, “How quickly they creep up! Happy Birthday.” Carona added, “Unless of course you wear the butt-floss style. Happy, happy birthday from the entire Carona clan—Mike, Debbie, Matthew & . . . the Little Sheriff.”

A year later, in a card inscribed, “Bad news, Birthday person . . . Apparently it is illegal to look as good as you,” the sheriff wrote, “So says the sheriff—see I told you it was good to be sheriff. Happy B-Day from the Sheriff, Mrs. Sheriff and the Little Sheriff . . . oh, yeah & Matthew too!”

That’s America’s Little Sheriff.

New OC Weekly

Just read the new OC Weekly on line. There on two birthday cards to women, (not Debbie), in the Sheriff's very recognizable handwriting. He flirts with these woman making sexual comments about the "little Sheriff"...even writing that it is not Matthew.

Pitiful. Absolutely pitiful. Can't believe how duped I was.

What a piece of work. I feel like I need a shower just working for this bastard.

Too bad Sgt. Rich White is deleting comments like the above from his censor controlled Tin Star blog as quick as the views are expressed.

Thank God for freedom of expression and THIS blog.

Wow,

Rich White at Tin Star can't delete the posts as fast as they come. About 6 posts deleted in 10 minutes. All were comments about the published articles covering Carona's handwriting on birthday cards to women.

So print the truth...unless it hurts.

shrill is good

The more shrill Carona haters become is a pretty good indicator of their dwindling chances. I'd be nervous also if I had been conned by Hunt's promises of a real campaign.

Oh My God!!

Here's the OC Weekly Article that everyone is talking about. Hey, folks at OCSD...how can you respect a guy like Carona?

OC Weekly “Little Sheriff” Article

Glass Wall

My contact behind the Glass Wall tells me there is a reason it is called the "little sheriff". From what he's seen it is not misnamed.

Let's be Fair

Jubal,

I trust you'll link to OCW "Little Sheriff" article in tomorrow's news roundup???

Received another Carona mailer today. This one claims he "created the Amber Alert System." Reeeeeally? Did these politicians learn anything from Al Gore's "I created the Internet" claim several years ago.

Sheriff ("big" or "little", depending on which head you are thinking with today), you did not "create" the Amber Alert. It was created and implemented in Texas. Like many other things you do, you simply ride the coattails of somebody else's success, and try to take all the credit.

The mailer is flat out deceiving and a bold faced lie. When is the public going to wake up?

Jubal

I have great respect for Scott Moxley, but this birthday card thing is a little hinky.

Soctt simply puts the cards out there and encoruages the interpretation that the Little Sheriff is a reference to the Sheriff's...reproductive organ. And given the kinds of accusations that have been levelled at Carona, it's understandable that people would immediately leap to that conclusion.

I don't know what Mike Carona is referring re the Little Sheriff. But I have a hard time believing he would sign a birthday card to a then-family friend as being from him, his wife, his son and "the Little Sheriff."

This is from a period of time when the Caronas and the Jaramillos were friends. they socialized. they talked to each other. As in, "Debbie, thank you for the birthday card from you and your family." And I'm supposed to believed Carona signed a birthday card to Llisa Jaramillo as being from his wife, his son and his unit?

Frankly, it doesn't add up. I don't know what or who the "Little Sheriff" refers to. And it would be nice if the Sheriff addressed this himself.

The Carona Haters out there will believe absolutely anything anyone says about Carona as long as it is derogatory.

Jubal

And in defense of Sergeant over at Tin Star:

It's his blog. You clowns get bent out of shape because he exercises his right to monitor the comments and remove those he wishes to remove.

Everytime I check, there are tons of comments on almost every Tin Star post -- so it doiesn't look like the Sergeant is applying a heavy hand.

He takes the trouble to provide a forum for people to discuss the Sheriff's race and OCSD and law enforcement issues. It's easy to carp and complain when you don't have to do anything but post a comment.

Jubal

And finally, fun time is over with the sinnuendoes.

I've been too busy to police this thread, but that's changing starting now.

What the???

>>>Frankly, it doesn't add up.

I guess those pictures from Russia of him holding that female and of her wearing his jacket don't add up either?

Regardless, the article is news, whether it is because of its content, or Moxley's reporting. Let the readers decide.

The mailer is flat out deceiving and a bold faced lie.

You might want to actually read the mailer before denouncing it as a lie. Contrary to your comment, this is what it says:

"Amber Alert - Created California's first countywide Amber Alert system."

Is that untrue?

Jubal

I guess those pictures from Russia of him holding that female and of her wearing his jacket don't add up either?

Those pictures from Russia show what they show: Carona holding the tour guide, and then posing with her wearing his jacket. That's all they show. Pictures do not necessarily tell the story behind them.

The Carona-haters fill in the blanks and proclaim the tour guide is really a prostitute, or at the very least must be having sex with Mike Carona. Isn't it common knowldge, after all, that when I man picks up a woman to mug for a picutre, it is universally understood to mean he is having sex with her? And isn't it accepted as revealed truth that allowing a women to your your jacket means you are sleeping with her?

Jubal

Jubal,

I trust you'll link to OCW "Little Sheriff" article in tomorrow's news roundup???

I will once I figure out a non-pornographic headline for the article.

Good points all, Jubal. But how many birthday cards from 2002 and 2003 did you keep? My guess is most people don’t keep birthday cards unless they’re of some value (be it sentimental or blackmail.) And yes, the Caronas and Jaramillos were friends; I guess that’s why Jorge felt at ease with showing the Sheriff nude pictures of his (Jorge’s) relatives, as has been reported.

Jubal

Just read the new OC Weekly on line. There on two birthday cards to women, (not Debbie), in the Sheriff's very recognizable handwriting. He flirts with these woman making sexual comments about the "little Sheriff"...even writing that it is not Matthew.

You "just read" those cards? Really? I guess you didn't notice they weren't to "these women" but a single peron, Lisa Jaramillo.

But hey, why worry about accuracy if it gets in the way of your Carona-hating?
