Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

My guess is that the people who ordered the notaries to sign are guilty of some crime. Holding out something of value to force a public officer to exercise his duties unlawfully is probably some sort of corrupt influencing or public intimidation . The notaries should have refused, taken the consequences, and sued the ever-lovin' out of the sheriff and his corrupt-influencing , public intimidating staff. I'd say the sheriff and his staff are guilty if there is a criminal statute on the books dealing with their behavior in this case.

Re: “Notary duties by the book

It seems all that which Pam Zubek has so excellently reported (as is usual for her) will be ignored by those being exposed.
This truly proves to me the wrong folk are controlling COUNTY OF EL PASO inc., with the "elected" puppets doing as their handlers direct them. Satan's municipal corporate system of governance needs to be dissolved ASAP, as it is clear they won't follow their own statutory policies and will fake whatever is necessary to continue the plunder of the populace.

Re: “Reader: Trump's not worthy of military respect

That is an opinion, but it is not shared by all veterans or those still active. I never understood why Light Colonels are always the ones to include their rank in any correspondence even in retirement.

Way to pander to your Liberal base!! New low for Zubeck. Why mention Swasey? I know, to grab the readers attention as if it is relevant to Garret's service and sacrifice at Planned Parenthood! Shame on you CSINDY!

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

@MikeRandall ... Dan May is just as bad as Bill Elder. They are a match made in ... well, I think you know where I am going with that one! It's a shame that the elected "leadership" in this county is so corrupt. It is quite sickening.

Interesting note about the KRW report. So, glad you brought that one up!

Hey Pam ... let's get a copy!!!

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

As so many of us know, Bill Elder actually has a black heart. He is driven by evil. He began to show his true colors when he and his boy band started their crap late 2013 before he even took office, but so many thought he was the almighty savior and here today we see another example that he is nothing more than a corrupt demon. He can't run forever. He can't continue to hide in the shadows or point the fingers at others and watch them take the fall. Regardless to the fact that he is an old fat guy, I can assure you, he cannot out run Karma.

The Garrett Swasey reference is a low blow even for Zubeck. It's irrelevant and disrespectful! Shame on you Pam! It has nothing to do with Swasey's sacrifice. Disgusting!!

Mau Piailug practiced Satawalese (Micronesian) navigation. Not Polynesian navigation. He taught these techniques to the Polynesian Voyaging Society, but they are not Polynesian techniques.

Re: “Pikes Peak Market opens to public

The lack of production space is what will doom the folks trying to peddle their wares. That's the reason I decided not to put in a booth for our bakery. You have to sell alot of product in order to pay for the booth and the off-site production facility. I wish them the best of luck and hopefully it will allow them to get a much larger place and production facility.

I didn't like serving under President Reagan and Mr. Trump is the personification of why I despise the G.O.P. in general. They're happy to send young men and women into harms way but we're forgotten once our hitch is up .

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

How can anyone believes the El Paso County Sheriff's Office would changed if you elected a New Sheriff and he allowed the leadership of former Sheriff's Maketa to remain.Former Sheriff Maketa was not along in the alleged corruption within the El Paso Sheriff's Office.

Anyone who has served in a leadership role is aware of, if not all, most things the person above them is doing, especially if its been going on for almost twelve (12) years.

Most of Maketa's Senior Staff, Joe Breiste, Undersheriff, Bureau Chief Mitch Lincoln, Commander Rob King, Commander Tom DeLuca and Maketa's assistant, now Media Service, Jackie Kirby are still employed with the Sheriff's Office at their current position or has been promoted.

I believe the current situation at the Sheriff's Office is, Same Pig, Different lipstick. The alleged corruption you are seeing comes from the same old play book of the past. The same folks that played on Maketa's team is again playing on Sheriff Elder's team and corruption is in their DNA.

In the defense of Sheriff's Elder, I think he's a good guy, his heart is in the right place most time, but you can't keep the same folks that supported corruption under Maketa and expect them to change under your leadership.

The citizens of El Paso County are setting themselves up for a bigger scandal than Maketa's days. If the County Commissioners walk around with their head stuck in the sand, then you the citizens will donate again to potential legal actions.

Citizens and County Commissioners you can't defend those actions this time by stating you were not aware, Maketa left you with all the warning sign.

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

Several citizens have been disappointed the comprehensive audit promised by Sheriff Elder during his campaign has not been released. It's as if there was never an audit completed. The public tax paying citizens would like to know.

Re: “Reader: Either assimilate, or get out

First Patience Kabwasa said:

""Rosalina," who left Honduras when she was 14, and has lived here as a "good law-abiding citizen/immigrant for over 20 years.""

Well, to begin with, if she came here without following the legal processes, then she is here illegally and therefore by the very definition of "law abiding", she is not.

And then, if she is a citizen, then she has nothing to fear from ICE. ICE does not deport citizens.

So Patience really needs to learn what the heck she is talking about.

-----

Then Doug Roman wrote:

"Then Why has Rosalina occupied this country for over 20 years and not applied to become an American citizen?"

Because if Rosalina is here illegally, she cannot apply for citizenship. There is no path to citizenship in DACA.

"People cannot just cross borders illegally and work, pay taxes, etc., and also then choose not to go through the proper naturalization process that millions of others have in becoming citizens."

If they come here illegally, they cannot go through the naturalization process. Only legal residents can do so.

" Either assimilate and become Americans, or get out."

It is perfectly acceptable for legal residents to stay here without becoming citizens.

So Doug, like Patience, really needs to learn what the heck he is talking about.
