As of 8 p.m. November 2, 2010, Janice Rutherford led the race, capturing 51.59 percent of the vote to Biane’s 48.41 percent.
Why would the good people of San Bernardino County give Biane one vote? I can not beleive they gave him 48% of the vote!
Biane is the incumbent supervisor representing Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana and Upland and the mountain communities of Crestline, Lytle Creek and Lake Gregory. Less than two weeks ago, Biane announced he would be turning in his county-issued Yukon Denali when news surfaced he was arrested in Chicago in 2005 on suspicion of drunken driving. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving, paid a $750 fine and completed 12 hours of alcohol treatment. In addition, his driver’s license was suspended for 3½ years. Earlier this year, Biane was implicated in what state and local prosecutors are calling the “biggest corruption scandal in San Bernardino County history.” Biane was identified in a criminal complaint as “John Doe No. 5,” who was alleged to have helped conspire with former Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Postmus and several others to secure a $102 million settlement in favor of Rancho Cucamonga developer Colonies Partners LP in November 2006 in exchange for monetary bribes.
