Some readers have asked me about disgraced former Councilmember Dominic Caserta. He finished 5th in the Supervisorial race, with seven percent of the vote.
Caserta hasn’t been seen around town since the stories broke about his sexual harassment allegations. But people are still talking about him. Here are the comments I’m hearing:
- Some people say that he’s moved out of the area.
- A few people are speculating that he’ll sue the city for forcing him to resign.
- A lot of people think he’ll sue the Santa Clara Unified School District for releasing his personnel records. That’s how we found out that he has a history of sexual harassment allegations that goes back years.
As of yesterday, with 72 percent of ballots counted, Caserta got 2,868 votes. SanJoseInside.com wonders how many of them are from voters who voted before they broke the Caserta sexual allegation stories.
It’s possible that those were early votes. Or those were voters who don’t read or watch local news.
