There is quite a potential for bombshells dropping this week in a number of ongoing corruption-related issues.

On Monday, we have the arraignment of former San Bernardino County Assessor Bill Postmus and former Chief of Staff Jim Erwin.  It is expected that the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office will turn over discovery for the case.   This may very well prove to be interesting.  First, the rumor that the District Attorney may ask for a gag order would be funny if it didn’t keep popping its ugly head up.  If true, it begs the question, “What is the District Attorney trying to hide?”  Well, that has birthed a few more rumors, the most prevalent of which is that among the discovery will be information showing that Second Supervisorial District Chief of Staff Matt Brown dropped a dime on his boss, Supervisor Paul Biane.  Rumors of Matt’s pending termination have been running rampant for a couple of weeks now.

Depending on the amount and content of the discovery, a preliminary hearing date is expected to be set.  Attorneys for the defense say the hearing date will be written in stone.  They will not waive time beyond the set date.  This could prove more than interesting for the District Attorney’s Office who has said they have not even completed the investigation and cannot do so until the county waives it attorney-client privilege.

On Tuesday, we expect the Board of Supervisors to make a decision regarding waiving attorney-client privilege.  That is a darn near “damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don’t” decision.

On Friday, Rex Gutierrez will be in court.  It is expected attorneys for both sides will be arguing over the witness list.  Among the names we’ve heard are Mark Kirk, Gary Ovitt, Mark Uffer, Mike Ramos, and some serious surprises that will be a bombshell for sure.
