The ink wasn’t even dry on the ‘filed’ stamp affixed to the criminal complaint against San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor Neil Derry before the recanting started.

Recanting by key witness Bill Postmus.

Postmus, after seeing the actual declaration and complaint filed by Attorney General Kamala Harris, immediately started telling several persons the documents are wrong and have mischaracterized his statements given to investigators.

Postmus’ new contradictions of the statements have now made it to criminal defense attorneys representing various individuals tied to the District Attorney/Attorney General investigation of San Bernardino County government and the Colonies settlement.

Whoever snowed Attorney General Kamala Harris into wading into a mess started by her predecessor ought to be pretty pleased right about now.

All to hurt a good man, a public official and his family.
