As predicted, Warnie Enochs was reprimanded by the Murrieta City Council last night. The only councilmember to remain standing with Enochs was Ostling (who still has not resigned his seat despite promising to do so if last year's Recall failed). Enochs was sanctioned by his colleagues on a 3 -1 vote.
But Warnie wasn't the only show in town yesterday. Things were really hopping in Murrieta yesterday. Former Councilmember Jack Van Haaster, the only elected removed in the 2005 Recall, was arrested on 5 counts of perjury and 5 counts of filing false documents. It all seems to be related to his daughter's day care center that he voted on that led voters to oust him from office.
If you've noticed a strange aroma in Riverside County today it's the smell of fear? And what does fear smell like? It smells like elected officials soiling themselves because someone over at the DA's office actually cares what is reported (or not reported) on the Statements of Economic Interest that they're required to file each year.
