Perhaps Ms. Alexander connected one too many dots leading directly to her own personal bank account?

What about the City of Salinas' deferred compensation plan and Gabilan Mortgage snd the appraisers who worked for Basil and Roger Mills Monterra and King City project? The City kept loaning Mills money even after it was clear they couldn't pay it back. It seems like there have been a number of ponzi scheme hard money lending programs during the real estate bubble created by an even larger fraud, the Wall Street CMO problem.

When will the FBI take all the files from the City of Salinas and analyze that program? Or is that too political? It looks like a twenty million dollar heist rather than just bad business.

Barbara wrote a puff piece in a local magazine for Salinas Mayor Dennis Donohue. Maybe she wanted some of the employee pension fund money. The mayor's friends have made off well thanks to taxpayers' help. In Salinas, when money goes missing in the city treasury, Donohue blames voters for not paying him more in taxes so the heist would go unnoticed.

"Alexander, who owns mortgage and investment companies in Monterey" Call me nit-picky, but wouldn't thorough journalism include the names of those mortgage companies? As consumers, that's what we REALLY need to know, as opposed to just free plugs for her radio show.

Street criminals or white collar criminals, if they are distroying lives both should be dealt with. I agree the article looks like an ad for the radio program instead of addressing why the FBI sent so many agents to investigate this home. I find it hard to believe they just go raid and take evidence on hearsay from an ex-employee if there is nothing to back it up. Let the truth prevail.

I am shocked & appalled, yet not surprised. You know what they say about Karma...well...heres hoping you get yours! How DARE you swindle & ruin OUR lives with YOUR greed. You were trusted & intentionally misled us for MONTHS (years). You have no idea of the grief & financial disaster your intentional misguided mismanagement has created. Here's hoping that the damages you have afflicted on US bite you in the ass.

Still in Monterey from what I hear and NOT paying anyone back. However, making promises as usual. She hurt so many people. The sad part - a lot were friends who trusted her and she took their retirement savings. Shame on her.

Her actions have proved she does NOT CARE how she ruined lives and stole money, does she still have her 24K gold pinky nail and BMW?
