Rutherford

You know the saying.

How does it go?

What tangled webs we weave.

Looks like the saying may apply to Joshua White.

White is a paid staffer for San Bernardino County Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford.

As a matter of fact, the same White who recently was afforded an increase in salary courtesy of his boss.

Most likely a pay raise for a job well done.

According to sources, White is a writer for www.iecrookwatch.com.

A Internet website started several months ago and initially designed for the sole purpose of attacking the former chief of staff to Third District Supervisor Neil Derry and this blog.

But, since it’s creation, the site has expanded to attacking several politicos, including, Fourth District Supervisor Gary Ovitt, former supe Paul Biane, Ovitt’s former chief of Staff Mark Kirk and others.

White, who initially entered San Bernardino County government and political circles with the help of former mentors Bill Postmus and Adam Aleman, seems to have learned well.

His most notable work product was writing the one and only 2007 Assessor’s Annual Report at a cost of around $40,000 to produce.

White also spent time blogging for www.redcounty.com during Aleman’s stint as editor of the site.

White’s blogging was on county time of course.

It’s going to be hard for Rutherford, a self-proclaimed Mormon, to claim ignorance on this once.

But, please try and do so.

P.S.: It’ll be interesting to see how much of White’s new endeavour is being done on county time.
