The chief of staff for San Bernardino County Supervisor Paul Biane said in a letter Monday that he has been the victim of repeated harassment and retaliation for cooperating with prosecutors in an ongoing corruption probe.
In the letter addressed to his boss, Brown outs himself as a witness in the criminal investigation of the county’s $102 million legal settlement with Rancho Cucamonga-based developer Colonies Partners LP in November 2006. State and local prosecutors allege the settlement was tainted by conspiracy, bribery and extortion.
