#1 Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Hillsborough said:
"I don't think the
public is naive, and I don't think they're stupid."
Comment: Public servant Munks believes he has gotten away with outrageous
behavior because the Attorney General, his supervisor, is far away.
But, in this democracy, we, the voters are the ultimate bosses, and we
have the political power to make a judgment in this case.
- #2 Munks said:
"I believed I was going to a legitimate business ...""
Comment: No one believes Munks. He is not THAT stupid. If he were, it would, by itself, be a reason to remove him.
"... evidence that both men violated their own department's orders ..."
Comment: We believe Greg Munks has surely failed to adhere to the code of ethics in
the General Orders of the San Mateo County Office of the Sheriff.
We believe he failed to protect the sex slaves against oppression.
We believe he failed to keep his private life unsullied as an example to all.
We believe he has attempted to deceive the public.
The code of ethics declares that his badge is a symbol of public faith which
he as betrayed, and is therefore forfeited.
It would appear to observers that the General Orders do not apply to the boss. For the preservation of justice in this society, it is critically important that we, the voters,
act to remove this unfit sheriff.
- #4 "...
"Munks and Bolanos spent the weekend at the Mandalay Bay ...
[which offered] more than a dozen types of mssage..."
Comment: So, public servant Munks, you want us to believe that you
skipped legitimate massage places in downtown Las Vegas and paid
much more to a limo driver to take you to a such a filthy operation?
Who can trust such a person as you? In another age you would be
tarred and feathered and driven out of the county.
#5 "Although no official record exists that Munks stayed at the
Mandalay Bay, a clerk at the hotel confirmed that Bolanos
booked a room there ... the weekend of the relay race."
Comment: Public servant Munks, disappearance of the record of your
stay indicates COVER-UP. Your cover-up not only fails, you, it
#6 ... home fitted with barred windows and furnished sparsely with a couch and TV in the
front room and nothing but mattresses on the floors of the bedrooms
Comment: So, you want us to believe you thought you had gone to a legitimate business?
#7 "Most of the women working at the six brothels
were indentured sex slaves, said Las Vegas police Lt. Dave Logue."
Comment: Public servant Munks, we don't send a man to prison
for paying for sex with a willing prostitute (and lying to his spouse, and exposing himself and his spouse to venereal disease.)
But, using sex slaves is embrace of a vicious crime.
These women are forced to submit themselves by
physical violence and threats against their families.
This is one of the ugliest crimes known to humanity.
As a customer you are complicit in that crime. We must remove you.
#8 "When the news first broke, some deputies
felt ashamed to be part of the department. ..."
#9 "It was the worst thing that could have happened to the office."
Comment: Munks and Bolanos, you are a stain on law enforcement and honest officers will rejoice when you are gone.
#10 "If the sheriff is not held to the standards of conduct that
he expects of his officers, the deputies lose their credibility and
their ability to enforce the same codes"
the chief executive said.
Comment: Public Servant Munks - many voters might want to see you punished. But, your removal is not a punishment. It is an imperative that we voters must perform for the sake of this society. Conduct and arrogant cover-up such as yours is destructive to this nation.
#11 "I have the support of my men and women of the Sheriff's Office,
... and I have the support of the community"
Comment: Public servant Munks, you deceive yourself to think you have support. Your staff told the journalist interviewers they were ashamed and this was the worst thing that could have happened to the department.
#12 I [Greg Munks] didn't break the law.
Comment: Public servant Munks, you were not arrested but you have done far worse than visit a brothel that is illegal in Las Vegas. You have abused your office and our trust. We say to you now, you should be removed.
