Humboldt County District Attorney Not Recalled Despite PALCO's Efforts

PALCOgate: Humboldt DA not Recalled
March 3, 2004: Humboldt County voted yesterday to keep District Attorney Paul Gallegos in office. 61.21% of voters said no to Measure F, which would have recalled Gallegos. At a victory celebration, an Assistant DA vowed to continue and win the lawsuit against PALCO.
Feb. 25, 2004: Eureka, CA -- The District Attorney's richest defendant poured more money into the DA recall this week. A statement filed with the Humboldt County Elections Office reported that Houston based Maxxam dumped another $75,000.00 into the campaign to recall Paul Gallegos.

In recent weeks, assistant DA Tim Stoen, who will lead prosecution of the Fraud lawsuit against PL, had confidential documents related to the Fraud suit stolen from his computer in the DA’s office.

As PALCOgate continues, District Attorney Paul Gallegos' house was broken into a second time. As the March 2, 2004 election draws near, the community is further subjected to Maxxam's expensive and misleading media campaign that aims to demonize Gallegos and steer attention away from the Fraud.

Ralph Nader weighed in on the recall campaign prior to announcing his bid for president. Former California Dept. of Forestry director Richard Wilson recently submitted a declaration stating he would not have agreed to the Headwaters Deal had he known the true probability of landslides connected with the high rate of timber harvest.
