For the first time in 25 years, there are two candidates on the ballot running for San Mateo County sheriff.
Incumbent Carlos Bolanos has been sheriff since 2016, and he has wide support from government officials. But his opponent -- one of his own deputies -- says an incident more than a decade ago casts doubt on Bolanos' character.
Deputy Mark Melville is highlighting a 2007 incident involving Bolanos and Greg Munks, who was the San Mateo County sheriff at the time. Bolanos was the undersheriff and Munks' second-in-command. The two were detained at a Las Vegas home that was operating as an illegal brothel during an FBI sting dubbed "Operation Dollhouse."
Bolanos said he thought the brothel was a legitimate massage parlor and was outside of the building when the raid occurred.
But Melville isn’t buying it.
