AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for January 23, 2014

Many San Diego politicians are returning money donated to them by a Mexican National that is accused of using a straw man proxy to make the illegal donations.

D.A. Bonnie Dumanis returned $700

Interim Mayor Todd Gloria returned $500

Congressional candidate Carl DeMaio gave back $500

California State Representative Juan Vargas says he’s giving back any money illegally donated to him. Reportedly that could be as much as $3500

The UT San Diego identified the Mexican National attempting to make the illegal donations as Jose Susumo Azano Matsura. He’s accused of using a political social media company run by Ravneet Singh. Federal authorities arrested 41-year-old Singh in Washington DC last week and brought him to San Diego. It is alleged that Singh conspired to funnel as much as $500,000 from Azano Matsura into the coffers of San Diego politicians. Ex San Diego Police Detective Ernesto Encinas is accused of conspiring with Singh in the government’s complaint.

And a third man, lobbyist Marco Polo Cortes was charged yesterday with conspiracy to finance campaigns with illegal money. Court papers describe Cortes’s as a business associate and friend of Encinas.

More on this San Diego Political Novella is sure to follow.

A man is in Federal custody and accused of smuggling weapons into Mexico hidden in a motorized wheelchair. The 52-year-old was trying to cross at the Otay Mesa port of entry with parts for assault rifles and 64-box’s of ammo. Firearms are illegal in Mexico and American authorities say they will work hard to prevent smuggling from the states south. In my opinion he’s lucky he got caught in San Diego and not in Mexico.

The National Weather service has two warnings for San Diego. First: dense fog is blanketing our cost and make the morning commute very scary, so slow down.

And second a fire watch is in effect for San Diego’s inland valleys and mountains. High winds and low humidity are creating the dangerous conditions.
