Hot off the press!

San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Chairman James Ramos has endorsed the reelection bid of San Bernardino City Councilman Tobin Brinker.

Combine the Ramos endorsement with that of San Bernardino Mayor Pat Morris and Brinker may as well just quit now.

Brinker, who is hell-bent on slashing the benefits of the city’s police officers and firefighters, is expected to have a rough go of it this time around.

Ramos’ support of an anti-public safety candidate is of no surprise.

What’s also interesting here is Ramos’ self-perceived status as a “King Maker”.

Kiss the ring please!
