Friend of the blog and legit crazy person, who used to double as the goalkeeper of the women’s USA soccer team, Hope Solo, announced she has entered alcohol rehab Friday. Solo is a decorated member of the soccer team, but also has had more than enough run-ins with the law. This is a very good positive step; I am saying this because she was the best goalkeeper in women’s soccer history.
Here is a look see at Hope Solo’s rap sheet.
6/21/2014 she was arrested for a domestic dispute involving her half-sister and nephew. The carnage was so bad Sen- Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut sent a letter to US soccer blasting them for not taking the charges seriously. The charges were later dropped. Solo was quite intoxicated that night.
1/19/2015, While it was her husband (compete dirt bag former NFL player) Jeremy Stevens who was arrested for DUI, he was driving the women’s soccer van, with Solo in tow. The van was not supposed to be used for non-team events. Rules don’t apply to Solo. Solo was very intoxicated, I will give her credit for not driving, but being a passenger in a car with a drunk usually doesn’t end well in a crash.
3/31/2022 Solo was arrested for DUI when police found herself passed out in a Wal-Mart parking lot with her twins in the backseat. Yikes.
While I understand folks will say she made a mistake, or what not, it shows a pattern, and a bad one at that. The domestic violence is a major problem, likely fueled by alcoholic rage. Being a DUI passenger in the team van shows a massive judgment error. The last one however is indefensible. Being passed out drunk with your two young offspring in the car is horrific. This usually leads to divorce or separation instantly; I mean think about it. You couldn’t wait until you got home? Of course, not you are a drunk.
That all being said, the point of this blog is not to go after her, she made a very wise choice. Choosing to enter rehab as a public figure is tough, as scrutiny will follow. She is smart to get out in front of the DUI charges as judges tend to look favorable on choices like this. We here at the blog wish her the best, she was unceremoniously kicked off the woman’s soccer team and was drug through the media for seemingly every mistake. The only advice I would give her, be a better wife and mom, your kids need you to make good choices not horrible ones.
Alcohol and drugs are destroying the lives of many, and yet this country wants to make it easier to gamble? Sheesh.
PS in an ode to Troll, Hope is pretty hot, and she has “cray cray eyes” basically meaning crazy in the head = crazy in the bed.
Editor’s Note: Due to a vacation, this post fell thru the cracks in my In Basket. Troll was on time, but I muffed the handoff and failed to get it posted when he submitted it.
Well, well, well. It was an unspeakable tragedy but one of those arrested is getting smoked by the Troll. Look at this idiot!
Sacramento police announced a third arrest Tuesday stemming from Sunday’s mass shooting downtown, saying they had taken into custody a man seen carrying a firearm after the incident. Daviyonne Dawson, 31, was arrested late Monday and a gun was recovered, police said, adding that Dawson will be charged as possessing a firearm despite being prohibited from having one. “At this time, Dawson is not charged with crimes directly related to the shootings,” police said. “Based on the type of firearm recovered, detectives do not believe that this gun was used in the shooting. Detectives are continuing to investigate this crime and identify additional suspects.”
Bah Gawd that’s the Troll’s music…. get after him!!!!
First off that’s a crazy way of spelling Davion, like wow. I will say this, that name in the game Scrabble is worth several triple point bonuses! Hat tip to your parents though, your name has more characters than your IQ has points.
Also, boy must that suck, here you are on a Sunday morning hiking around downtown with your AK draped around your neck, and some jacka** is taking photos of you. The NERVE! Here is Daviojetjngmshr or however the hell you spell his name just going for a stroll on the Sabbath, and it ends in his arrest! On the Sabbath no less!
My sources tell me Dawson was out with his gun just keeping watch, he was going to call the police, and do the right thing. He has been quoted saying variations of that during his sentencing hearings of which there have been many. Or maybe did he want to return to jail because he craves the oatmeal? Or wanted to find true love in the bathhouse wing of the jail?
BTW how rude of those gang members to unload all those bullets with you in the area! It’s like when the red-light camera catches you, when someone else was guilty! Dawson was caught on camera with the gun walking near the area. Since when is America a police state? I thought this was America? Where is Ron Paul and Ted Cruz on this issue!
Sacramento Superior Court filings show Dawson has felony cases from 2012, 2014 and 2015, and documents say he was charged in 2014 with the Halloween assault on a man as a member of the Starz street gang.
Dawson subsequently was released from the jail Tuesday after posting $500,000 bail, a law enforcement source said.
I thought we were supposed to be giving young innocent black people money…. not taking it away! This is just another obvious move by the white privileged folks to take money away from a black man!
Hmm normally one would say the third time is a charm…apparently for you, it wasn’t, as your luck hasn’t changed. Also, great name of the gang you joined, Starz street gang…. sounds like a makeup group for trans people. Maybe when you are committed to jail you can join the sparkle cupcakes shower gang?
Regarding the Halloween assault, gotta give my man Dawson some credit dressing up as a gang member, makes you incognito.
He also was charged with being a street gang member who “engaged in a pattern of criminal gang activity and did willfully promote, further and assist in felony criminal conduct by said gang members,” court documents say.
When reached for comment Dawson said he “dindu nuffin” in regard to these alleged crimes … are we inclined to take his word for it? In addition, all that shooting, and Dawson couldn’t even get a shot off? He is destined to be a Sacramento King!
Dawson, I will say this, I am not a very religious person. However, I do feel the need to set aside some time in my life for prayer to thank god that I’m not you. Most folks go to jail to tell a tale about how they got in. Your story basically sucks. Yeah man, was walking by a crime scene, had my gun over my shoulder. Dindu shoot nobody. Then deez dumb azz cops be poundin on my door. They dun arrested me for nuthin man. I din du it! Little advice Davioduensgf or however the heck you spell it, keep the back door closed at all times. Keep your head on a swivel, and if you drop the soap, let it go brother. Stay strong.
PS anyone whose parents spell their kids name like that belong on a government list.
Sometime last year, a customer of mine got a speeding ticket. Shortly thereafter, they did traffic school. Recently, said traffic violator came into my office and literally argued with me about his consequences for the better part of an hour. As a result I was unable to assist anyone as he had me cornered while he vented.
In cases like these, the issue flows in this pattern…..the court where you got the ticket….the DMV….your insurance company. The order I just listed is the order of who can help you alleviate the issue. In essence you need the court to notify the DMV that you did traffic school, and DMV removes the ticket…then we (the insurance company) remove it from your record. Like any other interaction with a government entity, don’t expect the issue to resolve quickly. Also expect to spend many hours trying to just get to someone who can help.
The story I am recounting in this blog post is a true one, and will show why if you cheat, you do not win.
To set the scene, the customer and his spouse are immigrants from North Africa. While they speak English, they tend to use a massive accent or claim they do not understand when the outcome isn’t favorable. Since they did do traffic school 3 days after paying the ticket, I thought they might have a shot at getting this ticket overturned. I suggested going to the court house in Jackson, and essentially pleading ignorance about not knowing you had to pay an extra fine for traffic school. Since they literally did the traffic school 3 days later, and the cost of the ticket hitting your insurance is roughly $400 a year, it’s worth the fight. My suggestion of pleading ignorance, basically meaning you don’t speak the language well enough and you made a mistake probably would have worked, but since we were in February and the ticket happened in July time was short.
Rather than head to Jackson, they wanted to try their luck at DMV. Again they did not go to a group that could help, but once again wasted a day arguing with folks who cannot aide them. They came back to my office saying they were at DMV for 4 days arguing with different people, and they all said you must go to the court. So we are back to step 1, and it’s like nothing happened….because nothing did. Worse yet, more time had elapsed between the day of the ticket and present. I implored them to go to the court, of course they waited yet another week. Finally they went to the court where they were told they were out of luck, because too much time had passed. The ticket stands as paid, and it will hit their driving record, did they plead ignorance? Of course not.
They pointed out they do not speak or read English well, and had their English proficient granddaughter navigate the website and pay the fine. Strike one, look at the red lettering on this screen shot regarding paying your ticket vs traffic school.
Secondly, they said their granddaughter did traffic school online on their behalf….that’s illegal in CA. Strike 2.
After hearing this, they went into full scorched earth rage, blaming their granddaughter, and everyone else, making a very public scene at the court. (They volunteered this info to me upon returning to my office to argue some more, even though it was established of all the people who could help, I was least able.)
Folks I’ll wrap it up this way, if you are going to cheat the system, you’d best make sure you think it out prior. Make sure if questioned you have a reason for your actions. These two were trying to scam the system. Like anyone else, they see the USA as the land of opportunity and can tell any story and get away with it. They had their granddaughter pay the fine, and do the traffic school, yet somehow they didn’t think their plan through. Who’d think it could backfire? Literally on the traffic school paperwork you have to swear under penalty of perjury it was you who took the tests. However my favorite part of the story was how they threw everyone but themselves under the bus! I know who suggested that, I work with him, it never works in a setting like this.
If you want to be a winner in the game of life cheating is not a good way to start. Own your mistake, people will have a better respect for you. No one likes the guy that always blaming others. Also who had the idea to argue with all the folks who cannot help? The insurance guy and the DMV can’t overturn the court, why would you go to them first? And do the damn traffic school yourself! Lying sack of crap. You got what you deserved!
It has been a while so we will update the goings on of former Windsor Mayor Democrat Dominic Foppoli, not that anyone cares, but here goes. Dominic bizarrely declared himself “cleared of all wrongdoing” and decided to run for office in 2022 as mayor. Yes, some folks maybe delusional, he is just flat out dumb.
Foppoli did not respond to requests for comment. But a source close to Foppoli told KTVU that he is running for his old seat – and that Foppoli says he’s been cleared of any wrongdoing.
Town councilmember Debora Fudge said, “I’ve seen the paperwork and I have no clue what Dominic’s real intentions are because we have not spoken.
Fudge said the fact that Foppoli filed the paperwork without any explanation “is not being able to take the temperature in a room.”
She added, “I can’t see that Dominic would have any support for running for any office in Windsor or anywhere at this point.”
Thank god you weighed in Debora, I was waiting with baited breath to hear from you. I’m so very sorry Dominic didn’t disclose to you his future plans in advance. Since you know you’re the benevolent queen of Windsor. As far as Dominic not being able to take the temperature of the room, he took what he wanted from his victims you douche. As far as not having support, well Bill Clinton got re-elected, stranger things have happened.
Yes, folks that’s right, he was declared innocent apparently, no press conference by the California AG or the Sonoma County Sheriff. Sadly, that was wishful thinking. It got bad for Dominic in November, as the Sheriff raided his home; taking several pieces of electronic media.
The objects taken from Foppoli’s home last Wednesday include two laptops, three iPads, a cellphone, a recording device, camera, USB drive and a DVD or CD, according to the filed search warrant, which SFGATE obtained from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. The warrant reveals the items were singled out as potential “evidence that tends to show a felony was committed.”
Allow me to explain this one, innocent people, myself included, routinely have our houses raided by the police, its standard operating procedure here…ok, I can’t anymore.
Folks this is really bad news for Dominic, judges don’t just sign off on warrants for police to raid someone’s house. They do so after being convinced the crime was committed and the evidence seized will result in a forthcoming arrest warrant being issued. This is because if zero evidence is obtained, the judge has mud all over his face. Also, another person came forward with allegations against Foppoli, the story is behind a paywall so I couldn’t access it.
Commentary: The USS Foppoli continues to circle the drain, and it won’t be pretty for him nor his supporters. That is a lot of electronic media that was seized, which tells me quite a bit of video/photo and other evidence exists. That is gross and disgusting. Anyone who films themselves, their partner or both having/doing/partaking in sexual acts has major issues. First of all, the idea of watching someone else having sex is gross, the idea of watching yourself on instant replay is disgusting. Think of not just you but your partner. However, the truth is Dominic is such a loser he is used to watching other people have sex online, it’s called porn. Sadly, it leads to bad habits/beliefs etc. being formed i.e., the idea of “rape fantasies” and the like. You get so used to watching it on movies or YouTube that it becomes real, much like politics, violence, etc. it’s not the real world, it’s quite literally fantasy. Dominic likely filmed these acts figuring it would exonerate him later…quite the opposite will be occurring. It may be fun with your group of guy friends, maybe even the occasional female to joke about filming your sex acts, even using it as blackmail…but to normal people it isn’t funny…it’s a crime.
Most of these women who have come forward have brought up some aspect of being filmed/possibly being filmed, never with their consent. This is likely another crime, similar to a warrantless wiretap, CA is a 2-party state, and if one party didn’t consent it’s a crime. We believe evidence exists, quite a bit of it. We also believe an arrest warrant is forthcoming. We also believe Florida wants to move but California is taking the lead since the majority of the crimes took place here.
To speak directly to his followers (I know you read this blog, you forwarded it to an attorney who accused us of Libel Per Se) how do you all feel now? I hope you feel good. Congrats on defending an alleged rapist, serial sexual harasser. Apparently, you all feel recorded porn/photos/videos etc. are taboo and funny? I’m sure you feel like Dominic still has done nothing wrong. I’m sure you believe the videos will clear him; he is a nice man right? I doubt that will be occurring, actually I hope he does the perp walk Christmas Eve! Sadly, your leader is vacationing in Italy right now because he knows his freedom is short lived, he is on borrowed time. The joke is on you…this blog is headquartered several counties away, none of these bloggers have been to Windsor, and you were convinced it was a conspiracy. You even had a low rent lawyer write a mean comment on the Sabbath no less!
Now if I can speak to Dominic…not that you would listen but here goes. I actually feel sorry for you, from some who I spoke with in Santa Rosa you were a dorky, awkward loser in high school at Cardinal Newman. You were a loner who tried to fit in too hard, you had rich parents, so you compensated that way. When you struck out with the ladies you aimed younger, and younger, and younger. This was the start of your undoing. Your actions at your’s and my Alma Mater say it all, we met a few times, always a mid-twenty-year-old hanging with the freshman and myself. I know you fancied yourself a ladies’ man, and you had a car and ability to ply us with booze….it made you a disgusting creep. After the ill-fated night I had with you I was done. After George W Bush got re-elected, you insisted, I fly with you and several freshman girls to DC to see his Inauguration, I declined. You called me a loser among other things…and maybe I am. Yes, I passed on a trip where you promised me booze, girls, and other things…congrats you are a better partier then me. You developed a taste for the grape and had money. You infiltrated groups with no intention of doing good. It was about “getting lucky” and in essence picking out a trophy…it’s sad. You became a public official and you just got worse. Dominic read the SF Chronicle Article; the stories are flat our cringe worthy. Then to find out you filmed these acts is gross, but I guess you analyze your performance and give a breakdown Monday Night Football Style? That’s about as bad as taking a girl’s underwear as some kind of trophy. Hope you had your fun, because its curtains for you soon. I would start Googling countries with no extradition laws, because I don’t think you will be having a good year in 2022. But the good news is you aren’t a loser!
Thanks for helping our blog here go viral, we average double digit hits per blog, but my stuff on Foppoli generated earth shattering records! We were contacted by the local paper, and a prominent attorney (one who I would not want to face in court mind you!) life is good here for us at the blog.
PS The enablers of Dominic had better hope a) I never get elected in this state and b) hope my preferred party never takes power. Because I will be introducing legislation to change CA rape laws. First it would be a boomerang back law, so if a case is discovered the statute of limitations would go back 5 years prior for any further crimes, and so on and so on. This stops creeps like Dominic from running out the clock, or threatening victims. The second change would be any and all enablers who knew would get charged with rape crimes as well and go on the registry. This stops the “well I saw a lot of bad things, and wish I said something like his ex-campaign manager told me. You may not have penetrated or forced yourself into the girl, but if you didn’t stop it, you’re an accomplice.
Editor’s Note:This was sent to me prior to the beginning of today’s Black Friday looting in select markets.
As the country waits with bated breath as the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial debates his faith. Will he walk? Be found guilty? Or will the jury split the baby?
Sadly Mr. Rittenhouse is not at fault for his actions, and he is being slandered in the media. Most are calling him a racist, even though he shot 3 white men. Others are calling him a deranged far right anti-government zealot when zero proof of that exists. Some are even saying he crossed state lines with a banned firearm…also not true.
Mr. Rittenhouse is guilty of one thing, being a hardo. The optics of him walking about with the AR-15 slung over his shoulder were unnecessary. However, he had no choice, as the local government failed. Government, much to the dismay of Tea Party/BLM types, has a role in our lives; it is to keep us safe. In Kenosha that did not exist. The local Police and City Leaders decided to stand down and let the protestors create a chaotic scene. When “reasonably prudent persons” (it’s a law school term for a normal person) decide the government won’t protect them, they arm themselves for protection. When an angry mob is running amuck, like we have seen so many times before, normal folks get scared. Look no further than the scene at the CHAZ or CHOP in Seattle. In that autonomous zone, people were killed as paramedics and police were not allowed to enter.
Where was the local government? Where was the governor? They allowed this mob to run amuck. I saw a similar mob in Sacramento, they tried to throw a Molotov cocktail into the DA’s office. They tried to enter and burn the local jail. Mayor Darrell Steinberg told the police to stand down.
The situation descended into chaos and as a result, we have abandoned store fronts, and businesses with boarded up windows. Folks like us here at the blog refuse to travel there because the situation could get chaotic again and any time, and we have no trust in the local official’s will to do anything about it.
While I disagree with Mr. Rittenhouse going to Kenosha and doing what he did, let us take a step back for a moment. Rittenhouse was threatened by all 3 men he shot, killing 2 of them, lawfully I may add. The “victims” Joseph Rosenbaum, who was a convicted pedophile and Anthony Huber a convicted domestic abuser, Gage Grosskreutz who is a felon, aimed a gun at Rittenhouse. Folks these are not the martyrs they have been made out to be, as is the norm when a black man is shot by police these days. Could we please stop making these folks out to be innocent victims? In the case of all 3, not one of them would have died if they weren’t there provoking trouble. I’m sorry, but running about and threatening violence, is a good recipe assume room temperature quicker than most. Even more so when threatening someone with a high-powered weapon.
Frankly I feel Rittenhouse will walk, and once again chaos will begin all over the US. It is very preventable, but local politicians will pander to the mob, and as a result normal law-abiding folks will suffer. The news media should be asking a simple question to all. Isn’t the main role of government to keep us safe? Why did the local police or leaders create a protest zone? It is due to the local government failing to do its duty that 2 men were killed and 1 was wounded, Mr. Rittenhouse is just the collateral damage.
Now an entire city hangs on the verdict of a jury (who by the way has only 1 minority on it) regarding the fateful events of that night. Even the judge has been scapegoated by the national media. Chaos is set to happen again, and the question we all should be instead of why? Is How come our government isn’t keeping us safe?
Folks have you heard the words “defund the police lately?” Of course, you haven’t, since our inner cities are now crime riddled utopias, the idea of calling to removing police from the streets is toxic. Key word in my last sentence was “idea.” You see the liberals in the country don’t change their beliefs, they change a buzz word.
What is happening in big cities nationwide right now is a massive crime surge, violent crime especially. You don’t need to watch the news; you can see it with your own eyes. We have been releasing “non-violent” folks from prison. These folks mixed with reduced morale at the local precinct, and city councils who are pressuring the local DA not to charge on certain offenses. The result is a powder keg about to blow. The Democrats saw all this, and they know the suburban moms (aka the ones who supported Trump the first time, not the second) are having second thoughts on “defunding.” So, they changed the rhetoric, now it’s a vaccine mandate.
Cities got smart, why call it defunding when the word mandate works just as well? It’s not about your health and safety, right? That officer standing guard on the corner? The officer who pulled you over? Well, they better not be unwashed! So as a result, a mandate works here. Again, it’s a public health crisis, right? Most know the public safety workers voted overwhelmingly for Trump and are most likely to be resistant to a vaccine. The answer is simple, order a mandate, if they don’t comply fire them. Why not, we get to shrink to police force and blame the officers not elected Democrats.
This is playing out all over the country, there is discussion of entire firehouses and police precincts shutting down. Look at New York City a place where crime has skyrocketed…the answer is less police due to a mandate! Remember when NYC cut one billion in police funding.
San Francisco has become a lawless region, parts of LA have vigilante justice. The problem will be getting worse not better, as these mandates are set to go into place over the next couple weeks.
Do not kid yourselves loyal readers, defund the police is alive and well, it just exists under a different name. Calling it a mandate and invoking public safety is the new buzzword. This is playing out in all big cities, hopefully it won’t come to one near you. We used to believe in freedoms here, sadly since 9/11 we have given those up, and put them in the hands of bureaucrats and a media that selectively reports and edits as they see fit. The virus isn’t killing the masses, it seems like it targets specific groups. Also why is it that today we have entire generations who want to go after people’s livelihoods? I think some do not understand the loss of a job leads indirectly to a loss of housing, transportation, food and mental state. Aren’t those things what the Left and BLM argue so much that they are in favor of?
Hiring police is not easy, it costs a ton of money and time. The candidate pool for recruiting has dried up. Now we have mandates. What will they mandate next?
Folks we have chronicled the fall of my fellow Dominican University of California alumni Dominic Foppoli over the last few months. We are putting a bow on the series today with a summary and concluding thoughts on the former mayor of Windsor.
Dominic has been accused of rape/sexual assault by 9 women publicly, we believe there have been at least 30 privately. We also believe that number is closer to 60 or 100 when you take into account most survivors never come public with their story. Foppoli finally stepped down as Mayor when a celebrity of MTV fame, Farrah Abraham, came forward publicly and said she had turned over digital, and I believe, video evidence to local police in Florida.
Like any coward, Foppoli resigned on a Friday, the slowest day in the news cycle and one most folks pay zero attention to. However, this does not stop the upcoming criminal and civil suits against Foppoli, the town of Windsor, and his family winery. Truth be told, his resignation should have come a long while ago.
You see Dominic is a larger-than-life character who fancies himself relevant, he wore a sash emblazoned with the word “mayor” like he was Mayor Quimby or something.
He also had polo shirts and a jacket custom made with his name and the word “mayor” on them. This is typically not sanctioned, but Ken McNab doesn’t have a brain, so Dominic got a free pass. Seriously Windsor has a population of around 30k, my hometown has one over 170k and hardly anyone cares about our mayor. Dominic wanted the title and the power that comes along with it. This was evident when he was telling folks to “mute or unmute” when they spoke at the infamous council meeting where the council was voting to ask him to resign. It came to my attention last night that Dominic tried to bully out Rosa Reynoza when she was going to run for mayor in 2020. Dominic told Reynoza that he would “get way more votes than her, and he would make several campaign donations in her name to local charities if she bowed out.” This is illegal use of campaign funds and speaks to the character of this wannabe “Godfather type character.” All this for a job paying 10k a year by the way. Makes sense when you find out he drove a Range Rover with a custom plate reading “DOMSRANGE,” he was also quite proud of his white Tesla.
In reality, he was just a real-life version of a character from the movie Wedding Crashers.
He never wanted to be involved in that dance club or Active 20-30 for legitimate reasons, he couldn’t care less. He needed dumb titles and meaningless committee assignments in order to go to the conventions and pick up chicks. He would find a victim, ply them with alcohol, and likely add a date rape drug, and wait for it to take its course. If that failed, the only other play in his playbook was to wait until he found someone too drunk to stand and “become the good guy” by walking them to his room or diverting the Uber/Lyft cab to his personal residence. Thus, giving the victim no chance of escape. Even more cowardly, he would claim he had video footage of the deed that he held over the head of the survivor as leverage. Quite the sick human this Foppoli is huh?
We interviewed a former girl friend of mine who is a criminal defense lawyer in the Bay Area County of Alameda. She told me Dominic is in a heap big trouble and he didn’t realize it until it was too late. His comments about the women amounted to “they wanted it” or “well they seduced me” are not going to work in front of a jury. Worse yet, he instructed Robert Stryk to make claims of a sex tape and he has, in a sense, called the victims “alcoholics, philanders, and adulterers.” Hate to break it to you, but none of that matters, only the events of the night in question matter. She told me the firm she worked for would likely only take a case like this on a large retainer and would need to convince the client that he likely is looking at an unfavorable plea deal at best. If he thinks attacking the survivors at trial is smart, he will get an even harsher sentence, most judges are none too lenient on sex crimes, especially a serial rapist like Foppoli. Worse yet Foppoli thinks a defense of “it was all consensual” will work, not likely when 9 women are all reciting the same story without any of them knowing one another. It’s over Dominic.
What we think will happen: We think Dominic is toast as far as Florida is concerned. It seems as if Abraham handed over plenty of evidence and likely it comes down to how many crimes he will be charged with. The holdup is they are likely waiting on California. We feel CA is dragging its feet because Dominic has played so many games in the past. As things sit currently in CA, it comes down to 2 witnesses the night Esther Lemus was assaulted/raped. The two folks are Amy Holter and Chris Grabill. Holter and Grabill are not being charged with any crimes, nor do we believe either will be, but both were present during the assault/rape of Lemus. Holter is a former girlfriend of Foppoli’s and Grabill a friend. Both are saying the right things publicly and are “cooperating with the police” but what does that really mean? Seems like, if they were cooperating fully, Dominic would be in handcuffs doing the perp walk? Florida is waiting, and will swoop in if CA fails to act, or do anything. Remember this, Deb Fudge, Ken McNab, and Ruben Martinez have helped Dominic at every turn so far, why would they stop now? Think I’m joking? Ask yourself this question, how many folks do you know like Dominic who were allowed to roam free after 9 women have come forward accusing them of rape/assault? Bet you can’t name anyone.
The good news is FL has no allegiance to Dominic hence the reason he stepped down immediately. He now knows his number 1 job is to fight these charges and he is dispatching his small group of friends to do so. One thing is for certain, he will be charged and convicted in CA, FL or both places. We feel he will be getting about 10 years of hard time in jail and will be forced to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life. It seems like both states are trying to feel each other out, if CA moves first, FL likely hits him with a fine and minimal jail time to be served at the same time as CA and a felony. If FL moves first, it will be a very strict, as the crime with the most evidence happened on their soil. Disclosure: I am not an attorney, nor do I play one on TV. I’m going off what my friend told me.
Some closing thoughts on his enablers: I really hope some of you take the time to grow up or disappear from this earth. Dominic, through your aiding/abetting and ignoring, has raped/sexually assaulted 9 women. To the former editor who spiked the story at the Press Democrat, by my count 4 additional women were assaulted/raped after you refused to run the story. Deb Fudge I hope your career goes up in flames. You are a joke of a human and a horrific actor. You personally enabled Dominic by spiking the emailed complaint directed to you about your “protégé.” Ken McNab, you are lucky that government jobs exist because in the real world, I don’t think you would even be hired to work the overnight shift at a Jack in the Box once folks find out about you covering Dominic’s rear better than an adult diaper.
Ruben Martinez and Mark Essick, I truly hope for both your sakes that Dominic is charged and convicted in FL and CA. I guess you could save face slightly if your department ends up arresting him. What truly is sad is that Fudge, Martinez, and Essick took an oath upon being elected/sworn in as an officer/councilmember to protect your fellow citizens from all enemies both foreign and domestic…. Just to point this out, you allowed a domestic enemy (rapist) to wreak havoc on your home city/county. Let that sink in.
Just for the record here, I want to let you in on some of the witnesses/people I spoke to regarding Mr. Foppoli. A Lyft driver who constantly ferried folks to and from his parties at his Christopher Creek Winery after hours. This person told me that the parties were constant, drunken debauchery with Dominic making crude comments toward most women present. A vendor who made frequent stops at his winery now refuses to step foot anywhere near his properties after hearing the way he speaks to his own staff and talk about other women. Some of Foppoli’s comments (to his female staff mind you) included: “What is your cup size” “Do thongs hurt you or feel like a wedgie?” “Let’s have a guess what underwear you’re wearing contest!” and my personal favorite line of his “are they real or fake? Can I touch them?” Yeah, this guy is one sick puppy dog. Keep in mind these statements were made to staffers likely between the ages of 21-30 by a male who was 33-38, this makes him a disgusting creep. I was also told he would threaten termination or retaliation should they go to HR. I would love to see the personnel files and get the opportunity to reach out to former tasting room workers between say, the ages 18-33, as to why they voluntarily separated from the winery. Dominic fancied himself as a real-life Van Wilder of National Lampoon fame, too bad this ain’t Hollywood.
More disturbingly, we spoke to two folks who witnessed the same behavior from 2 campaigns of his. One while running for mayor, the other for State Assembly. During the campaign for mayor, Dominick made crude comments to two 17-year-old volunteers. Check this statement out “I want to apologize for my large (manhood) and I’m sorry if it makes you uncomfortable, but I do like showing it off.” WOW. I spoke to another person who was on the ill-fated Assembly campaign. This person spoke of Dominic making similar crude remarks. Again, to underage co-eds, saying he “only buys magnum sized condoms (if you’re curious, magnum is the largest/biggest condom made) so it’s a reference to his large “manhood.” He also spoke about how he likes wearing tight pants to show it off. The sick part, his campaign manager, who he named by name (her maiden name), was a couple feet away, laughing and joking about the matter. Disgusting.
Is there a single grown adult around Dominic? The answer is no. The folks—McNab, Fudge, Martinez, Essick, and his former Assembly campaign manager—feel a close connection to Dominic. They ignored his behavior and in the case of some, encouraged it more. You see, around rapists like Dominic, there are naïve folks, just the way the rapist wants it. Dominic needed you more then you needed him, he could comp you wine or whatnot, he just needed you to look the other way. Each of you willingly did. Sadly, if any of you were to jump from the height Dominic has inflated your ego and fall the distance necessary to land on your actual IQ, the fall would kill you instantly. Dominic needed a group of useful idiots. You all had no idea, but he carefully recruited you, vetted you, and lured you into his web of deceit. How else would you explain McNab, Fudge, Essick, and Martinez stonewalling investigations and papering over email complaints from constituents? How would you explain this one? Shortly after the Chronicle article, his former campaign manager called me hyperventilating as she told me that she saw “so many bad things” during Foppoli’s campaign for Assembly yet in the next breath saying that I can’t use her name on any post about Dominic because she still communicates with Dominic on social media and wants to remain his friend! This was less than 3 months ago! The answer to all these questions is easy, you all support his lifestyle and behavior, only when he became toxic did some of you publicly denounce him. Shame on all of you, you all have blood on your hands.
We consider this the final post on this issue. Thank you for your time, and mostly I want to thank the former campaign manager for sharing my blog with Dominic and his “friend.” I don’t want to name his name since apparently just the word “Liam” triggers a “cease and desist letter.” Keep in mind I never knew Liam’s last name, nor his involvement with Dominic necessitated hiring a lawyer until the lawyer told us. Due to your wanting to alert Dominic and his friend, this blog went viral. We got over 900 hits in one day! Even better, 2 local papers picked it up, as well as the attorney for the survivors. I was even told it was the “talk of the town.” Thanks to you helping Dominic, you made this blog famous in a county I think I have only stepped foot in once! Even better, I can say I have never been to Windsor, and I couldn’t likely find it on a map! Not bad for a tiny blog five counties away.
PS to the campaign manager, you lied to me about your involvement with Dominic. I have a request in to the CA Secretary of State Elections Division as to when you separated from the campaign, I hope for your sake there is a termination form on file. If not, as the kids say, I plan on “firing you directly into the sun” on this blog.
We will be putting a bow on this series next week barring any late breaking news. This blog will be tough to read if you are an enabler of Dominic’s or an elected official in the Sonoma/Windsor area, I even land a clean blow on Windsor City Manager Ken McNab. Reader warning for triggering is advised.
Sonoma Sheriff Mark Essick: Essick is the top law enforcement official in the county, while he denies being “bros” with Dominic, hearsay says he helped squash 2 investigations into his past behavior in Windsor, more on that later. Essick rose through the ranks and when he was a captain in the department, he ran for the top job, winning in 2018. Prior to being elected, he oversaw the contract town of Windsor. (This means Windsor has no formal police department, they pay the county to provide it for them, this is quite common.) Essick and Foppoli overlapped quite a bit in Windsor, as Dominic was appointed to the planning commission in 2013, prior to getting elected to the town council in 2014. My understanding is while the Sheriff may not be good friends with Dominic, they collaborated a lot. Essick recently has come under fire for bullying and harassing Sonoma Supervisor Lynda Hopkins. Back in August, during fire season, sounds like the phone call got heated and the Sheriff threatened the supervisor. An investigation took place and the Sheriff has sued to block the release of the results of the probe…seems kind of like Dominic’s behavior, right? Deny, deny, and blame others. Sheriff Essick, according to a couple sources of mine, is a bully and is known for making disparaging comments about women; even those on his own staff. Essick’s office is leading the probe into the allegations against Dominic, we here at the blog believe he is stifling this or putting his thumb on the scale to delay justice from occurring.
Windsor Police Chief Ruben Martinez: The “chief” can best be described as a real-life Barney Fife or Colonel Klink. While Windsor has no formal police department, he heads up the group of detectives and deputies in charge of the town. Martinez has been described by 3 sources as “not the brightest bulb on the tree” and “seems like more of a political appointee then chief material.” Interim town manager Ken McNab could not be more ecstatic during the press release: check this out!
“Ruben’s background and experience in law enforcement and knowledge of the Windsor community are a perfect fit for us. We are excited to have Ruben serve as our Police Chief and I look forward to his leadership and contributions as he engages with the community. Ruben’s appointment continues the tradition of law enforcement excellence and service that we have come to know and rely on through our relationship with the Sheriff’s Office.”
Think he may regret that statement just a little? But it gets better folks, look at Martinez’s qualifications and past work in the Sheriff Department. Law enforcement assignments during Martinez’s career with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office included service with the City of Sonoma Police Department, the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault unit, Special Operations and SWAT units, the Henry 1 unit, and his current assignment as a Watch Commander for Northern Sonoma County. Pay attention to the bolded statement please.
Martinez made an appearance on the special Windsor council meeting to address Mayor Foppoli’s sexual assault and rape allegations. When asked to comment about 2 letters, one sent in 2017 and another in 2020. Martinez, while never speaking to the author of either email or bothering to follow-up, said the comments amounted to political hearsay and the author did not want to press charges. The author of one email categorically denies not wanting to press charges. Let me again remind you, Martinez worked in the sexual assault and domestic violence unit for several years. Coincidentally, Martinez decided the other day to step down for “health reasons” [health of his pension maybe?]. We wish you best on luck in retirement “chief”, but we here think you stifled an investigation.
Oh, by the way, here is that Essick guy again on Martinez getting the job as Police Chief. Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick stated, “I am very happy that Lt. Martinez has been selected as the next Windsor Police Chief. The Sheriff’s Office is proud to be a partner with the Town of Windsor in providing top quality law enforcement services to the community.” That didn’t age well Sheriff.
Council Member Debora Fudge: Deb you will get my sharpest criticism so far. You have always referred to Dominic as “your protégé”, or saying “you were like a mother for him.” Well time to face the music for your transgressions. First the letter in 2017 was addressed to you, as you were the “rotating mayor” at the time. Fudge brushed it under the table and instead decided the best move was to “handle it internally.” The email detailed Foppoli sexually assaulting a group of ladies who had rented the guesthouse at his winery, as well as forcing his 2 tasting room employees to join in and “strip off your underwear and don a bed sheet toga.” The allegation happened 4 years prior, but you decided this was not material since it would have blocked your protégé from climbing the ladder. Fudge threw her weight around and persuaded the other council members that a measured response to these allegation of rape was to put of Dominic’s turn as mayor off for a year and proclaim that justice was served. Seems like a fitting punishment, right?……NOT. Dominic served as Mayor and then got a second one-year term with Fudge voting for him! In 2020 another email made its way into the City Hall, it went to City manager Ken McNab (Ken you may want to stop reading now) the email was sent to the town council, who predictably did not act. Fudge not only didn’t act, but according to my source she told those looking to investigate and I quote “it may hurt Dominic’s political career, he paid for his actions already.” Ouch. Keep in mind this email detailed how Dominic has a reputation of sexual harassment and allegedly raping a few girls around town. Deb Fudge you are the good ole boy network, nice job sticking up for your buddy Foppoli.
Fudge, being the political operative she is, gave in essence a “no comment” answer when the Chronicle reached out to her after the story on Dominic raping and assaulting 4 different girls came out. She claimed she “was out of the country for surgery and hadn’t read the article yet.” She then wound herself up and decided she, and only she, could fight for the rights of women in Windsor! She railed on Dominic at the special council meeting, saying she hated him, adding she was brought to tears by his actions, and he needed to resign. Deb Fudge is a woman who wears many faces. When Dominic turned into a political liability, she cast him aside. She objected to Dominic leaving the meeting early and voted for him to resign. No one on the Zoom meeting was fooled, #firefudge was trended on Twitter. Everyone knows you are full of crap Debora; your eyes were solid brown. Your political career is over as well.
So, you asked Dominic if he ever raped or sexually assaulted anyone, and he denied it? Oh my God, it’s a miracle! What great investigating Ken. Holy crap, just give this guy the Pulitzer for investigative journalism! CNN could single handedly save their ratings if they put you on during the prime-time hours. My God you are dumb, or are you just that tone deaf that you thought he would spill the beans to you?
McNab was on the council meeting Zoom call, custom background and all. Even though this was a serious matter, he hee hawed like a donkey about how he works for the council, not the other way around, and he couldn’t fire or prevent Dominic from emceeing the meeting. You made a bunch of other dumb statements, but I was far to fixated on your custom Zoom background to hear what you said. Oh, it’s nice to see that you spent more time on picking a Zoom background than actually … I don’t know, investigating Dominic! Maybe make a statement or two about the allegations, mention the email in 2017. Thanks to your background, Debora Fudge was only the second biggest clown of the night! Maybe you found you’re next calling if the car sales job, or pyramid scheme hocking jobs fall through! However, I’ll give McNab a little credit, he did make a statement that Dominic agreed to not enter the city hall unless Ken gave him permission and that the rank-and-file workers didn’t want his presence virtually or physically. Ken thank you for your service on this, such a gentleman, protecting the workers from an accused serial sexual assaulter and rapist! Ken you should be in the infomercials about why we no longer allow lead-based paint in this country.
On a more serious note, the connection between McNab and Foppoli runs quite deep. I have spoken to 3 very reliable sources and all agree that McNab and Foppoli are drinking buddies and are known to enjoy cigars together. McNab was a regular at The Christopher Creek Winery and was out with Dominic and Esther et al. the night Esther was “allegedly” (we use allegedly as he hasn’t been charged or convicted yet) raped. We are not saying McNab had anything to do with the events of that night, we are merely pointing out that he had a chance to be an adult and instead he passed. Deferring yet again and enabling bad behavior. McNab according to Transparent California made about $280k last year for his incompetence. But focus on the positive, the man had a custom zoom background for a serious meeting about Dominic!
The Press Democrat (minus Andrew Graham) this paper is a colossal failure, it’s very sad. The former editor spiked the story about Dominic, which ironically the larger SF Chronicle picked up and ran above the fold. I am not sure to this day why the story was deemed not fit for print, but I have a sneaky suspicion Dominic and company made a phone call or two. We do think Andrew Graham is a good one, (full disclosure I spoke to him and he is doing the best he can digging, not an easy job when your paper has the bad reputation it got). The new editor dropped an opinion/editorial piece apologizing and saying they needed to do better in the future; sorry buddy you need to do better now, Windsor looks like Hicksville, USA.
Robert Styrk: This guy is a certified piece of work. He is a lobbyist for Bahrain and Somalia, great human rights records those countries have! He has been running around doing interviews from Washington D.C. or London attacking the victims. He made an ill-fated appearance on the “Drive, with Steve Jaxon” where he called Esther a bunch of names, attacked the victim’s lawyers, and kept repeating a line of attacks when asked about the multiple women accusing Dominic. He did neither himself nor Dominic any favors. He is a friend of Dominic and calls Dominic a son to him…for the record Styrk is 7 years older than Dominic…weird! For the record Styrk has gone radio silent since Dominic stepped down as Mayor.
Dominic’s former campaign manager for Assembly: I do not know how you can possibly sleep at night. You figured the best place for an 18-year-old female volunteer was the personal assistant to a 21-year-old male candidate. Apparently, you have no ability to think, or your moral elevator has no bottom floor. Just to re-summarize: the 18-year-old intern was raped twice in one night by Dominic, stopping only for her to turn her head and vomit. I really hope you take some time to reflect and ponder making adult decisions in the future. Your ignorance set up a 16-year spree of rape and assault, whose victims included a fellow city councilmember, a former Mayor, and a former reality TV star. Not the best legacy.
Fellow readers, not a single person in his inner circle, from any walk of life, tried to stop this guy. My advice if you are a female, avoid Windsor as no one is safe while Dominic is free to move about, and you are even less safe with his enablers around. I truly hope the next mayor is Esther Lemus. She will clean this thing up. We have no dog in the hunt, but she is an inspiration for all survivors! Deb Fudge needs to be run out on a rail, her crocodile tears better not fool you, she is just an opportunist. Ken McNab should put his talents to work selling used cars, or at a local meet-up to recruit unsuspecting folks to join a pyramid scheme. Ruben Martinez is retiring, Sheriff Essick is in dire straits. Is there a single adult in Windsor right now outside of the survivors, their attorneys, or those pushing for Dominic’s now unnecessary recall? Please speak up!
Again, this did not happen in Hicksville, USA, this happened in deep blue Sonoma county.
Not that anyone cares about the pathetic life of Jorge Riley, and we here at reallyright.com hate piling on but I came across this gem of a story the other night. Jorge Riley was back in court again last month on 4/16, not for his federal charges but for charges filed in Sacramento, his home county. However, this hearing had to do with Riley turning himself in to police as a bench warrant had been issued since he skipped his court appearance 3/16. For those of you scoring at home, skipping court is one of the stupidest things you can do. Think about it, a judge, and a prosecutor waited around, and you decided to skip, so a bench warrant is issued, and the local sheriff/PD tries to track you down.
Why did I mention the names above? Well coincidently on March 9 Riley was being honored at the SRA monthly meeting. Bill Cardoza made sure to put the photos all over Facebook. The people mentioned are all pictured in several photos. Folks Jorge has a known history of being an alcoholic and having admitted to being a huge marijuana smoker. He was always verbally abusive to any women around him, and it is unknown how many children he has. Read on to see what Mr. Riley was charged with.
A week later he skipped court. I want to focus on a statement his lawyer made:
Riley was before the court for missing a court appearance March 16 on two outstanding felony child endangerment charges—his bail, after Friday’s hearing, is $250,000. It was $500,000 but he claimed he’s homeless and used a $600 government stimulus check to fly to D.C. in January.
According Russ Miller, Riley’s court-appointed attorney, Riley had left the state to protest at the capital and when he came back, all of his property, including electronics, were confiscated by the FBI.
Basically homeless at this point, his attorney claims, Riley had to stay at a friend’s place where he awaited the Zoom information to attend court and a working laptop to video chat.
This is what we call a lie folks, take another gander at that photograph, does the man in the middle look homeless or “basically homeless?” Looks pretty well groomed to me. So the government stole all his clothes and other stuff? Come on, Jorge looks just fine in the photo shared above, with a “drunken glare” I may add, so obviously someone in the photo sprang for the sacrament prior or during this event! Lovely.
Jorge is known to share everything about his personal life, he likely bragged about court being just a couple days away. I find it very hard to believe not a single person there knew about his pending court date, also I had heard rumors of these charges many months before now. Here is what he is charged with:
One Riley felony charge involves an incident where his child nearly drowned when the two went kayaking, and another charge accuses Riley of beating his son in front of bystanders for nearly six minutes straight while intoxicated.
Bill Cardoza has admitted to driving Jorge around and trying to help Jorge legally, as mentioned before Tom Hudson and Sue Blake are licensed attorneys, and Angela Azevedo had a long career in justice. I don’t know much of anything about Justin Hardcastle, Russell Gray or Todd Freeman but tethering yourself to Jorge is not a very wise move. Hat tip to Bill Cardoza for taking this photo, showing a “very homeless” Jorge a week before he skipped court, you can always count on the worthless, useless, idiot Bill to have his camera out.
To quote Joe Biden “What the hell is wrong with these guys?”
By the way, here is the prosecutor of the case on how much trouble Jorge is in:
Deputy District Attorney Daniel Jensen argued Friday Riley is in deep trouble on his Sacramento felony charges, too.
According to Jensen, there were many attempts to contact Riley by calling him and messaging him, and his previous Sacramento attorney even gave him the Zoom information. It wasn’t until Riley was told there was a warrant for his arrest three days later that he actually responded. He turned himself in on March 25.
We will just go ahead and say it, Jorge you can check out, but you can never leave. Sounds like the feds and the state are going to crack the whip on you. Get used to jail house oatmeal buddy. “You will be eating on the payers for a while, but sadly you have lived off the payers for most of your life so not a big deal for you.”
