Figueroa Investigation Forwarded to AG’s Office

NO RECOMMENDED CHARGES DESCRIBED BY SAN MATEO D.A.; NO TIMETABLE SET FOR FINDINGS
Four days before election day, the San Mateo District Attorney’s office has forwarded its findings into whether Liz Figueroa lied about her primary residence on voter registration forms to state Attorney General Jerry Brown, according to the East Bay Express.

There is no timetable for a determination on the allegation Figueroa ever lived at the dilapidated, tarp-covered home on Kilkare Road in Sunol, despite listing the address on her registration forms for her run for Alameda County supervisor. She denies living in San Mateo County during the past three years and instead rents a home in Sunol. An anonymous resident of San Leandro is believed to have made the complaint against Figueroa.

The investigation was transferred from Alameda County to San Mateo to ease concerns of a conflict-of-interest. Nadia Lockyer is endorsed by Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley in addition to being employed by the office. Consequently, Attorney General Jerry Brown has also endorsed Lockyer and is featured prominently in several mailers and on her website. No specific charges were described against Figueroa by the San Mateo D.A.’s office.
