San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos is at it again.
He’s going to form another special unit to garner some free press and try and throw a lifeline to his reelection bid.
This time around it’s not a dog or snake abuse unit.
Now it’s a unit meant solely to help his foundering campaign, with just fifty-seven days until voters show him the door.
Ramos’ new “Prevention and Intervention Unit”, will be the so-called community outreach arm of his office.
In other words, it’s another free PR maneuver on the taxpayer dime!
During his long-in-the-tooth tenure as district attorney, Ramos has created so many special units that if they actually functioned there would be no one left in his agency to carryout the prosecution of violent crime.
It’s pathetic that county supervisors decline to exercise their authority to intervene when this obvious abuse takes place.
But then again. They’re scared of Ramos.
So, if Ramos can’t raise money for his own campaign, which finance disclosure filings show he cannot, then why not use county general fund money instead!
After all it is the San Bernardino County way!
