Former Pro Temp California Senator Darrell Steinberg is running for Mayor of Sacramento. You may remember him as the guy who installed an “anti suicide net” on the Golden Gate Bridge. I remember him as an anti-gun, anti-military, anti-American, corrupt “bought and paid for” politician who did not care for its citizens.
For years, me and some friends of mine would go to his meetings and ask him the questions no one wanted to ask. During Steinbergs corrupt reign, multiple scandals were afoot.
One was Senator Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco and his huge scandals. He was the poster boy for the antigun community, The Brady Campaign. He got caught running guns to gang members around San Francisco and to terrorist in Asia and the Middle East.
Another Senator, Ron Calderon, a Democrat from Montebello, and his brother, was indicted in February 2014 on 24 felony charges that include accepting $88,000 in bribes in exchange for official actions.
The other Senator was Roderick Wright. He committed perjury and voter fraud by living outside his district. Wright was sentenced Friday to jail time, a lifetime ban from holding future public office, three years’ probation and 1,500 hours of community service.
While all of these shenanigans were going on, Senator Steinberg did nothing. He acted like it was no big deal during public meetings.
To make matters worst, Senator Joel Anderson proposed that none of the indicted Senators should be paid for there public service. However, Senator Steinberg thought otherwise, and all three Senators were paid in full all the way up until they were charged and only kicked them out of the Senate after huge public outcry. The only Senator that respectfully stepped down was Roderick Wright.
With all of this corruption, it is shocking that people will actually vote for this scumbag as their Mayor and if he is elected, I declare that Sacramento be nicknamed Steinbergs Cesspool.
