The content of the following e-mail to the parties greeted gives the update:
Senior Media Advisor Steve Whitmore recommended I contact both your offices to respond to a criminal complaint that I am simultaneously reporting as an economics journalist. Steve is also requesting guidance from the Sheriff’s administrative finance director; I will request Steve inform me of that status, and I will advise you of their findings.
Please read the initial e-mail below for the content and documentation of the complaint, and the questions I request answers for regarding what appears to be a massive crime.
Please acknowledge receipt of this e-mail, and advise me when I can expect an official response. Please also note what I stated to Steve that all our conversations will be published regarding this public matter of the public’s literal trillions of dollars.
I am willing to work with anyone to understand the data you’ll find documented below; please feel free to call on me.
Steve Whitmore provided prompt, thorough, and professional response that I am proud to report to the public. I would be delighted to do the same for the Office of Ombudsman and Office of Independent Review. Indeed, this process has begun (here, here, here to start, overall CAFR articles here).
Respectfully as a Los Angeles County resident standing for the public good,
