In yesterday’s Z107.7 news, we questioned why the names of many area residents, including mine and my wife’s, who had not endorsed him, were included on a 17 page on-line list of those endorsing San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon’s election. McMahon is currently serving as the appointed Sheriff and seeking election in November. After I sent a formal media e-mail query asking how my name got on the list, the entire list was removed from the campaign website. I called a number of individuals in the Twentynine Palms area I personally knew on the list and asked them if they had endorsed McMahon; two said absolutely not, and three others had doubts. In a follow up to that story, McMahon contacted Z107.7 news yesterday saying he was sorry and confirmed that mistakes had been made on his endorsement list. He explained, saying, “The best we can tell is that volunteers inadvertently merged a campaign mailing list with a list of people attending a campaign event.” McMahon apologized for the error and said they had taken the page down to “review and sanitize the list” and fix the errors. McMahon said after they have determined which names were listed in error, he would issue each a formal letter of apology. He thanked Z107.7 News for bringing the faulty list to the attention of his campaign committee.
