|Sheriff should resign in wake of 'Operation Dollhouse'|
Your San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks has been nabbed in a prostitution sting. As if that weren't embarrassing enough, he has the temerity to lie about it.
Bay City News is reporting today that Munks -- and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos -- were both briefly detained at an alleged Las Vegas brothel Saturday night. They were not among six people arrested at the alleged brothel two miles west of the famous strip. Neither man was charged.
The two top cops were in Sin City for a law enforcement run known as the Baker to Vegas Relay. They were detained as part of "Operation Dollhouse," a two-year investigation spearheaded by local and federal authorities aimed at putting a dent in the city's prostitution business.
But here is the most shameful part. Munks told reporters he had no earthly idea he was at a suspected brothel.
"I believed I was going to a legitimate business," he said. "I would not, nor did I, break any laws. Neither did the undersheriff."
Well, of course. Who hasn't been detained by police, the FBI, the IRS Criminal Enforcement Division and the Customs Enforcement Bureau because they thought the brothel they were at was, say, a cafe or perhaps a library? Who does he think he is kidding?
Munks went on to apologize for the embarrassment he brought his office. Now he should resign.
