Pest Control E.O. Bill Douglas accused by prosecutor of targeting CSAC office

Originally posted on July 25th. Updated on July 30th with the court filing document. Scroll down to the bottom of the article for the court complaint.

When Armando Garcia departed from the California State Athletic Commission, he did so under terms in which the Department of Consumer Affairs had to pay out $75,000 to settle a sexual harassment case. Bill Douglas & Dave Thornton ended up taking over as Executive Officers. After DCA personally & professionally destroyed Chief Athletic Inspector Dean Lohuis, Douglas got a lateral transfer from CSAC to the Pest Control board. Frank Munoz, who was also at CSAC’s office, got a transfer to the Pest Control Board as well. When Dave Thornton took over CSAC, he had retired from the Medical Board. Thornton left the Medical Board under incredible circumstances, as highlighted by this Sacramento Bee article.

You read that correctly — Armando Garcia, who was jettisoned out of CSAC after the $75,000 sexual harassment settlement, was replaced by someone (Dave Thornton) who DCA had to settle a sexual & racial harassment case to the tune of… $750,000.

As for Bill Douglas, here’s the tax records to prove his transfer from CSAC to the Pest Control Board:

And now, there’s news that Bill Douglas is joining Armando Garcia & Dave Thornton in the legal trouble club. The difference? Armando & Dave’s cases were civil cases. Bill’s facing criminal charges.

Last Wednesday (one week ago), Bill Douglas was charged with seven different misdemeanor counts relating to California Penal Code 530.5(A) (one count), 528.5(A) (five counts), and 529.2 (one count).

PC 530.5(A):

(a) Every person who willfully obtains personal identifying information, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 530.55, of another person, and uses that information for any unlawful purpose, including to obtain, or attempt to obtain, credit, goods, services, real property, or medical information without the consent of that person, is guilty of a public offense, and upon conviction therefor, shall be punished by a fine, by imprisonment in a county jail not to exceed one year, or by both a fine and imprisonment, or by imprisonment in the state prison.

PC 528.5(A):

528.5. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any person who knowingly and without consent credibly impersonates another actual person through or on an Internet Web site or by other electronic means for purposes of harming, intimidating, threatening, or defrauding another person is guilty of a public offense punishable pursuant to subdivision (d).

PC 529.2:

(2) Verifies, publishes, acknowledges, or proves, in the name of another person, any written instrument, with intent that the same may be recorded, delivered, or used as true.

There will be a hearing on August 30th at 8:35 AM at the downtown Sacramento courthouse on 720 Ninth Street.

When we get the court filing, we will update this post with all of the pertinent information.

And now we have the filing.

    I checked with Network Solutions and the domain names CSACToday.com and AstheCSACTurns.com are both available. If you’d like to transfer the site there, I will purchase the fightopinion.com domain for a reasonable cost.

      I lol’d at this.

      When things implode and major political names get hoisted on their petard in the end, I suspect there will many who will look back at all of this and realize they should have jumped into the ballgame on reporting the situation much sooner.

      But what do I know, I’m just a simpleton…

        Hey, remember when you said Dana taking on Anonymous was a horrible mistake on his part and that he and the UFC would pay dearly for it? Remember when many people, including me, told you that you were full of shit and had no idea what Anonymous was actually about?

        Your take back then was “Eventually I’ll be proven right.” Why should we pay any more attention to ‘when things implode and major political names get hoist on their petard’ now than we did then?

        • Zach Arnold says:

          You seemingly know everything about everything, which gives me great confidence that I am on the right path.

          As the tax records, lawsuits, and investigations starting mounting up, I’m sure you will return and revise your remarks. Right.

          As for Dana’s Twitterfest with Anonymous, he showed reckless disregard when it was unnecessary. If you want to defend his actions, you’re on your own.

        • fd says:

          “As for Dana’s Twitterfest with Anonymous, he showed reckless disregard when it was unnecessary. If you want to defend his actions, you’re on your own.”

          Yes, Dana’s disregard for Anonymous was incredibly reckless because the big, scary hackers were going to seriously damage his company.

          Tell me, how did that work out?
