The fat lady is singing on the end of the political career of Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach.
The Indio Police Department has made a charging referral to the California Attoreny General requesting that Zellerbach be charged with various crimes, including two felonies, related to the one-term District Attorney’s use of county resources for his reelection bid.
It’s the final nail in the proverbial coffin for Mr. Zellerbach.
The offenses were uncovered when Zellerbach, a former Superior Court Judge, was caught, not once, but twice, messing around with the camapigns signs of his opponent, Senior Deputy District Attorney Mike Hestrin.
Don’t expect any action by the Attorney General until after the June 3 primary.
