It’s too late!

The clock struck midnight at San Bernardino International Airport (SBIA) last month when federal agents walked through the doors with search warrants.

Now San Bernardino County Supervisor Josie Gonzales, who is also vice-chair of the San Bernardino International Airport Authority, is trying her best to re-write history and un-ring the bell as to her role in the lackadaisical oversight that went on.

A federal task force is exploring for evidence of possible criminal misconduct between airport authority officials and contractor Scot Spencer.


And Gonzales is trying to throw everyone and everything under the bus to shield herself from scrutiny.

For those people that know her best. The “I didn’t know” excuse is commonplace with Gonzales.

Of course, now everyone can expect heads to roll at the airport, with former director Don Rogers being the first to go.

Yes, Gonzales is going to get to the bottom of this, just as she does everything else after the cats out of the bag.

And one can expect Gonzales to use a flame thrower in this saga.


Just ask San Bernardino Mayor and former Superior Court Judge Pat Morris what it feels like. Morris sits as the current airport authority chair and he’s getting the full spread from Gonzales.

Machine guns and all.

From left to right, Morris and Gonzales

Everyone can see the political blood gushing from Morris’ neck and Gonzales holding the knife.

And the more they try to shut Gonzales up the more she pours it on.

Go Josie go!!!

Even though Gonzales has a tough time at grasping complex governmental matters, she’s still a very shrewd politician.

And Gonzales also has an arsenal of four-letter words and is unafraid to use them in private.

What’s amazing here is the fact that, until the feds showed up, Gonzales was hammering everyone including the San Bernardino County Grand Jury for daring to hurl criticism at the airport’s management oversight.

How dare anyone speak up against something Gonzales has blessed?

Even the lack of transparency in airport business dealings didn’t phase Gonzales until now.

How about no one answering the phones during regular business hours at a $200 million taxpayer-funded boondoggle?

I would use the word gullible to describe Gonzales. But I will reserve that label until after further analysis.

I’m sure she has no idea how that $200 million was blown on the airport to nowhere.

It’s quite likely that Gonzales will be answering many troubling questions regarding the airport in the coming months.

But then again, based upon other law inquiries involving her, she’s use to it by now.

For starters how about giving the public the names of any commercial airlines that, let’s say the past two years, have shown an interest in operating at the airport.

I mean real interest. Not make believe.
