Letter to the Editor: Hold Capps Accountable on Election Day

I would like to thank Ron Fink for his great analysis of this election.

He did miss Rep. Lois Capps' cover-up of the Mallory Dies murder at the hands of Capps staff member Raymond Morua, a drunk who would not have been in her life path had Capps' inept staff, who hired a three-time DUI arrest and trial veteran, done their due diligence. What were they thinking?

Then Capps allowed her chief of staff to forge Morua's name to two federal documents in an attempt to get him out of jail. Are those in the Capps camp thinking that if they keep these facts away from all the uninformed new UCSB transplants, who mostly automatically vote for Democrats, that they will go to the polls without knowledge of the Watergate-style corruption right here in sunny Santa Barbara? By the way, no one died at Watergate!

Is beautiful, vibrant, talented Mallory's death cover-up going to stay hidden until after the election? Is Capps going to be rewarded with a ninth term?

I was at Mallory's wonderful memorial at Shoreline Park, and I cried uncontrollably at the loss of this awesome lady. Capps, who said, “My heart goes out to the family of Mallory Dies," didn’t even send a staff member to convey even a molecule of concern or remorse to the friends and family of poor Mallory.

Don’t let the truth be hidden in the dark! Get it back in front of the voters.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
