San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday because of an apparent suicide attempt, just hours after FBI agents raided his office at the County Government Center.

At 1:22 p.m., emergency personnel responded to Hill’s Shell Beach home for a medical emergency. He was then transported to Arroyo Grande Hospital.

On Wednesday morning, the FBI served the County of San Luis Obispo a search and seizure warrant under seal and searched Hill’s office on the fourth floor.

For more than five years, multiple credible sources have reported corruption surrounding Hill, several developers and a group of marijuana businessmen. This includes allegations of pay-to-play, harassment and threats.

Hill is currently ahead in the District 3 supervisor race. Hill leads Stacy Korsgaden 51 percent to 49 percent, or by 528 votes. There are currently 817 uncounted ballots.

Considering Hill’s admitting to manic depression and now an attempted suicide,is this not the obligatory grounds for the county to place a person such as this into supervised custody in a medical facility? How could he have been turned loose to possibly do harm to himself again or others if this is true? Is it more of the good ole boys fart butterflies and are holier than thou power?

I’m willing to bet Mr.Gong is a little worried that the FBI has been watching over Adam Hill.Maybe the citizens of SLO County will receive an honest counting of the votes seeing how his wife needed to borrow money .Possibly Mr.Gong was aboard the Adam Hill gravy train

Did anyone else notice that on Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning after the election there were 24,500 remaining ballots to count as reported by the 2 news sources (CCN one of them)…and mysteriously on Thursday’s “Remaining Ballots and Counting Schedule” report, the tally jumped by 10,192 to 35,692? Where do 10,000 ballots suddenly show up? If they have 24,500, with (guess) 250 ballots/tray it is 100 trays of ballots. Then in the middle of the night they “find” 40 more trays?


Is anyone else concerned? I hate to invoke ballot box stuffing, but….If I could paste things I would paste the report here…

he still leads Stacy!!! How many dumb people are actually voting for this guy? This guy needs mental health help, I don’t want him deciding anything for my County

I wonder what the people who voted for this crook think now? “It’s a frame up, it’s Trump’s fault?”


Unfortunately he will remain on the BOS until he pleads guilty or is convicted.


The Governor will appoint a replacement, but it being the start of a new term a special election will be called at some point.


This episode is the best evidence I can think to demonstrate corrupting influence of money on our elected officials.


I wonder when Heidi Harmon, Jeff Lee and John Shoals will get a visit from the FBI?

Jeff Lee’s Home was recently raided by the FBI, computers were removed by agents.

What do you have to say Dan Dow?


KAG2020

What is he supposed to say? He is probably the one that got the feds involved.

It’s weird when you guys act like Dow & Adam are connected. They are as different as two human beings possibly could be.

One thing they have in common, both think they are above the law.

““Supervisor Hill was taken to the hospital yesterday,” San Luis Obispo County spokesperson Whitney Szentesi told The Tribune Thursday morning. “As recognition of his right to privacy, we’re not going to answer any questions about his personal health.” https://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/local/article241128456.html

There is the historical parallel to that attorney out in Morro Bay, Lee Broshears, a few years back. He committed suicide when he found out the feds were on to him.

This new situation should not surprise anyone who has paid just a bit of attention to Hill’s activities. Everyone who voted for him should ask themselves why they place their trust in such an obviously flawed character.

For many it was the Dem after his name.

The vote blue no matter who mentality.

Period.

Climate change is to blame, along with racism, homophobia, xenophobia and white supremacy. Adam Hill always tried to fight against these things. He only took those many bribes and quid pro quo thingies in order to save the planet, etc.


Ditto Heidi Harmon and all the other super-caring, compassionate folks who do the same kinds of things. I wonder if any of them are nervous? What if Hill survives and starts talking? Who will save the planet if we lose our wonderful leaders?
