Update: Supervisor Adam Hill removed his name from the online petition sometime on Saturday. A second name Patty Truin was also removed. One name is currently left on the petition.

Original story: San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill launched a petition Friday afternoon on Change.org protesting KVEC radio talk show host Dave Congalton’s coverage of recent allegations surrounding the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo (CAPSLO).

As of Saturday morning, the online petition, “Dave, Domestic Violence is no joking matter” has two signatures, including one from Hill.

“Radio Show host Dave Congalton has given comfort and credibility to a man convicted and jailed for beating women,” the petition says.

Hill is apparently referring to Ralph Almirol, an ex-boyfriend of Dee Torres, the CAPSLO Homeless Services manager. Almirol and other former boyfriends of Torres claim she routinely took gift cards intended for the needy and homeless for her own use. Almirol was arrested 14 years ago for domestic violence against Torres. Following the assault, Almirol said he sought help. The couple reunited and spent several more years together.

Hill and Torres are engaged to be married.

Congalton has featured numerous segments regarding the CAPSLO allegations on his afternoon radio show, defending the right of the ex-employees to be heard. He also devotes an entire broadcast every December to raise money for the San Luis Obispo County Women’s Shelter.

“I’m at a loss to explain Supervisor Hill,” Congalton said Saturday morning. “As I said on the radio, I’ve never seen a pattern of behavior like this from an elected public official in my 25 years on the Central Coast. I wish Adam Hill well. And I wish he would focus on county business.”

DAVE CONGALTON, We love you…..


Sue Adam for all that crap he posted on Topix about you and the anonymous e-mails he sent out from his IP address. Talk about slander and outright lies, what a ” bankrupt tecky” he is. It would be so easy to sue him from here to Timbuktu. Give him a taste of his own medicine for real.

I just saw this on the petition page:


“radio host, tiny market am station”


I can only conclude that Mr. Hill is an expert on all matters *tiny*.


kettle

Tiny is as tiny do

I’m reminded of the time Adam Hill defended Annie the dog. I thought he was a good guy for coming forward. Right now all I can say is that he sure is a defended of DOGS.


PaulJones

defended s/b “defender”

I automatically ignore politicians that use animals, children and elderly. It’s a no-brainer, and most would jump on the bandwagon to “support” these things. Well, duh! Of course they do. Just because a politico says, “I love dogs” (or whatever) only means s/he is being a politico at that point.


Never, EVER take them at their word. Watch what they do, and what they have done. Hill was a small man from day one, but he was the pedigreed liberal, so got the SLO libs to vote him in. Now the blinders are falling off many people to his true nature.


r0y’s rule for politicians: Never vote for Lawyers or Professors. Period.


Cindy

She got back together with him for a few years and now she is calling him a woman beater for something that she obviously had no concern over after he got help for that one incident ! Talk about reaching.


I think we should all start a petition against Adam Hill for intimidating all the whistle blowers who state that his girlfriend pilfered gift cards intended for the homeless and then spent the money with her other boyfriends and her children.


mkaney

Oh my Lord I cannot tell you how much I LOVE that picture of him flanked by Clinton and Bush. That right there tells you a lot about Mr. Hill


racket

This just keeps getting weirder.


Will we, the governed of SLO County, have an opportunity to sue the County for damages once our elected leader is proven mentally incompetent and harmful to his constituency?


kettle

So sad, suing ourselves.


More weird to come…….


korie

Oh… my… god…


This has reached the “look away” point.


taxpayer

Maybe Dave Congalton should sue Adam Hill for defamation.


DemandTransparency

Oh Lordy. It’s official. Mr. Hill has left the land of the mentally competent and now meanders the back roads of Crazytown.


Seriously though. What a NUTTER! At this point he no more represents me than if Shirley Ardell Mason herself was sitting in that seat.
