Two pages before the major dick-smack Hank Sims gave Paul Gallegos over the latter’s blatant misrepresentation of county crime stats, the world’s dumbest district attorney had already moved on to his next fictional accomplishment.
This one came in the form of an advertisement which states Gags “won” a million-dollar judgment against Big Oil and Tire Co., litigation in which neither he nor his office was meaningfully involved.
Instead, the case was assembled and managed by the state Attorney General’s Office on behalf of the State Water Board in conjunction with the California District Attorney’s Association of which, presumably, Gallegos is one of at least 58 members.
Arguably not the sort of thing to toot one’s own horn over.
Insiders, however, were quick to note that Gags was not entirely uninvolved.
While it’s true his office did not conduct an investigation, did not file motions, did not prepare briefs and did not participate in settlement talks, we’re told a secretary in his office did forward to the AG documents assembled by the county’s Environmental Health inspectors.
Oh, and he also lobbied to get added to a news release two months before an election.
What a leader!
When reached for comment, Gallegos said he would take credit for his own accomplishments if he had any.
Okay okay, we made that last part up.
