DA finds another Nutting conflict of interest

Supervisor Ray Nutting

By
From page A1 | July 31, 2013 | 45 Comments

A July 29 letter from District Attorney Vern Pierson to Board of Supervisors Chairman Ron Briggs revealed there may be more conflicts of interest in the Ray Nutting case.

“Last week our office discovered that District 2 Supervisor Nutting applied to be certified for Public Housing (Section 8), Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a landlord for property he owns in El Dorado County,” the letter read. County staff had “correctly” rejected the request on Aug. 31, 2010, due to “statutory conflict of interest.”

Pierson continued, “As a supervisor he also sits on the Public Housing Authority, and the federal regulations state that no member of the PHA is eligible to receive Section 8 funds as a landlord.”

Records indicate, Pierson wrote, that Nutting also used his position as supervisor to appeal to the then-director of the county Health and Human Services “who serves the will of this board.” Nutting, Pierson wrote, used official letterhead to obtain $1,400 in rental income from a detached residence in Grizzly Flat, “apparently desperate to secure this rental income.” The letter was sent to the regional HUD director, Stephen Schneller, seeking a waiver “of an obvious conflict of interest. It appears the waiver was never granted under federal law; even if it had been, there is no such waiver of Section 1090 violations under state law.”

In the letter, Nutting wrote that “I have a home in Grizzly flat (sic) that I have owned for four years. My current renter is leaving and I have advertized (sic) my home for rent.” A response to his ad asked if the home would qualify for Section 8, and Nutting said he was “willing to help her with much needed housing.”

“However, I have a conflict of interest as an elected official. My intent is to eliminate the conflict by not voting on any issues dealing with section (sic) 8 housing in El Dorado County. This is a very small part of my overall responsibilities. Most of the vote’s case on this matter are solely to pass through revenue for overall programs. Who is allowed in the program or not is handled at the eligibility determination level and not at the governing board level.” He added that he would abstain from voting due to a conflict of interest as long as the renter remained there, using his house as Section 8 housing.

Pierson sent the letter to Briggs “so that you can take the actions you consider appropriate.” He noted that, at Nutting arraignment hearing in South Lake Tahoe, “Mr. Nutting sought and obtained a postponement of his case even though they were provided discovery and grand jury transcripts in early June and despite the fact that deputy attorney general Peter Williams attempted to set the case for trial. While any defendant is entitled to file all appropriate motions, it is now becoming clear that this case is going to go on for a long time.

“Given the pending charges and this new information and Supervisor Nutting’s seemingly cavalier attitude toward conflicts of interest, I felt an obligation to advise the board.”

Nutting will return to court on Sept. 20 at 1:30 p.m. in Department 3 in South Lake Tahoe for a hearing regarding a demurrer and a 995 motion to dismiss charges.

    How many times do enough people have to ask for him to resign? How many times, by his own hand, are his actions apparent. Trying to help himself by obtaining govt. sec-8 rent subsidies? Trying hard at pretending to be serving the public by staying in office, delaying his case instead of a quick trial, and now requests a conflict waiver to be a govt. sec-8 housing landlord? Seriously? Sometimes when you think it couldn't become more of a joke, it does.

    Two statements: 1. El Dorado County is the most conservative county in California. 2. El Dorado County is the most corrupt county in California. Are both statements true?

    Colonel, the most conservative California county looks like Modoc with San Bernardino county winning the most corrupt award. The state of Georgia looks like they win 1st place as the most corruption risk state. Point being....

    Another saga unfolds in the life and times of Ray Nutting. And no one has caught onto his connection with Teresa Marty the tax preparer under Federal Indictment for a $60 million dollar scheme to defraud the IRS. As you should have guessed by now Mr. Nutting and Ms. Marty are tied together in multiple trust documents. Stay tuned for more.

    Just the tip of the iceberg, the information is now becoming fact and no one can make this an attack on Ray. He has done all of it and more, he alone used his position to obtain money and he put people in positions to benefit himself. He evaded tax reporting and took the money he stole to buy houses in and out of this state, he alone has used his position to bypass the requirements for new businesses to start up and by his own admission he took money for it. The past 15+ years have shown that it's all about Ray and the out of control Money, Power and Greed he has feed upon. He has been caught and when the investigation is complete everyone will see just how corrupt and controling he has become, no one else but Ray did this and he alone can stop the bleeding by pleading and leaving. His hands are in deep in illegal activity and those who have benefited will also be exposed as they already know they are known to the DA and will also be held to answer. Thanks to Joe Harn and Vern Pierson for not backing down and to the Grand Jury for the inditment and seeing past the smoke screen Ray tried to present, no one to blame but Ray....

    James, 5 sentences to answer your 8:20 question. 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because someone else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    RJ: That wasn't a drone your friends saw. It was a guy suspended from a motor driven glider that sounded like a lawnmower. He flew low over Coloma yesterday following the river toward Bacchi Ranch. We'll probably see an aerial view in the news soon relevant to watershed land acquisitions or something reminiscent of Orwell's 1984.

    Cookie, re. my 8:20pm. I asked whether the statement is true. Do Tea/Republicans want program cuts so tax rates of the rich can be cut? Your response centered on the alleged folly of taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Instead, if the statement is true, it is the reverse -- taking from the middle class/poor and giving to the rich. Transfer of wealth to the rich leaving the serfs to eat dirt.

    James E What program takes from the poor and gives to the rich? Does Tea/republicans want program cuts to give tax breaks to the rich? Nope. 99% of Tea/republicans are not rich. In fact the richest politicians are democrats. So why does President Obama want to reduce corporate taxes by 20%?

    Mr. or Ms. C&C: The richest politicians are Democrats? What is your reference for that? And, the President proposed a 20% cut in corporate tax rates to get the Tea/Republicans to support his jobs plan. Guess what, they refused. If programs are cut (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, pre-school education, etc.) and those savings are given to lower tax rates for the rich (which is the Tea/Republican plan), then the rich benefit while the people suffer. Now, don't forget to tell me how you came up with the Democrats being the richest politicians.

    According to the Elections Office records Joe Harn (who ran Unopposed) reported on May 9, 2006 that he received: $1,500 Alexandra Tsakopoulos, $1,500 from Anglo Tsakopoulos, $1,500 from Katina Tsakopoulos, $1,500 Chrysanthy Tsakopoulos, and another $1,000 from Anthena Tsakopoulos...... That's a grand-total of $7,000 from the Tsakopoulos alone.....when he ran for office in 2006..... So what did he do with the $$$$$ since he didn't have an opponent???..... That is where the question of who did he pass the $$$$ off to and ...... to do what?

    Wow, the gall. Let’s review. Starts annual illegal fires in one of the most remote locations in the County that taxpayers got to pay for extinguishing (wasn’t he connected to a fire fee increase out there?). Paid $$$$ to have prevented such an event to happen, by the taxpayers. His tax accountant/family trust trustee is doing time for tax fraud. Shakes down his own staff and a respected county contractor for bail money (by the way who tipped Ray off he was going to be arrested?). Says repeatedly he wants a quick trial to clear his name but has already stalled his own trial at least twice. Just exposed information that he tried to file for a variance on section 8 housing assistance for a rental property he owns USING HIS COUNTY OFFICE LETTERHEAD (no conflict of interest here). And now he gets to cry to the public through the Mt Democrat and Chris Alarcon for money. Dear BOS get this idiot out of the workings of the County until this gets sorted out.

    Curiouser and Curiouser.....You asked: "What program takes from the poor and gives to the rich?"..... Let me give you one example..... Water Subsidies. Water subsidies were set up to help small farmers (Less than 160 Acres) get water to their crops at a reasonable price -- because the Rich Agra-businesses had built their own .... According to the Congressional Record-Special Task Force on San Joaquin Valley Farmers, by 1979 the ONLY people receiving the water subsidies + Farmland Security Zone property tax rate (at 37% of the lowest property tax rate, and -134% for Cotton farmers per the Farm Bill).... so the Billionaire Corporate Agricultural Businesses (which includes Standard OIL and Southern Pacific RR) are PAID tax $$$$ to use water shipped to them..... the water that was suppose to ONLY be for the Small Farmers.... They TOOK the $$$$ that was for the small farmers so they could compete ..... That's just water. Don't get me started on crop insurance and crop subsidies.... Once the Corporations get these tax + subsidies.... no poor farmer can compete...

    Are there people who believe today that Ray is an honest man? I have read statements from Supervisor Nutting that his indictments are a pay back against him for supporting the Sheriff. I suppose his political consultant partners Alarcon and Dillinger believe that their indictments and convictions lately were political pay back also. The facts are that the DA has had a long friendly relationship with the Sheriff. I here he likes what the Sheriff has done while in office. The DA did not like the phony web sites hosted by Alarcon Dillinger and Nutting. Those sites were despicable, making horrible statements regarding the Sheriff's opponent, his wife and daughters. The Supervisor last desperate defense is to try to rally Sheriff supporters. Because Nutting endorsed the Sheriff. The Sheriff had nothing to do regarding the crimes Nutting has committed. And his name should not be linked in any way to Nutting's crimes. I don't think the DA placed stolen license plates on Alarcon's vehicle. Or was involved in their ill advised bilking of tax payer monies regarding the Pioneer Fire district. And I don't think the DA has the ability to con the Grand Jury who indicted Nutting. The Judge presiding over the case or the State Attorney Harris who's team is prosecuting the case. Conning people is more closely related to the good ol'boys Alarcon, Dillinger and Nutting.

    Phil, when speaking of standard oil and farming subsidize we must be talking about ethanol (corn). It isn't the rich taking from the poor, it is the econuts taking from the food producers to create greener fuel. Of course they don't mention it takes 1.5 gallons of gasoline to make one gallon of ethanol.

    Someone brought up apples vs grapes...they felt that the only reason apples were the number one crop in El dorado was because in the "crop report" Aplles are also counted with apple products...and grapes stand alone--so I asked at a meeting yesterday--the opinion of a couple of people who know something about AG. I was told there are not really any grape products--no jelly, vinegar, oil...just wine. (There was a person that does have concord grapes for eating and using for dye. What say grape people? I understand there are many kinds of grapes--my family over in Europe make wine in some regions.

    Fran, the earth contains the same amount of water it always has minus what ever the Astronauts have taken into space. It is either solid, liquid or gas and continually cycling. In 1976 you could step across the biggest puddles in the bottom of Jenkinson Lake. And back then the wacko's were screaming about the end of the world. Here is a recent end of the world scenario from the world of Make-it-up-as-we-go-along control freak leftists. I should mention they have been stealing money from the producers for 40 years selling this bunk. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/07/29/sea-level-rise-cities-towns/2593727/

    Cookie, I saw moonbeam's stuff. I'm conflicted on the delivery system. Right now we "waste" HUGE water pushing back the salt from the aqueduct pumps. We release extra stored water to push back. Tunnels deliver direct to the pumps. On the other hand, the more we deliver the MOre they take.----- use it or lose it (here). Beneficial use.
