It’s been a tough week for County Supervisor Dave Roberts.

His former staffer Diane Porter filed a legal claim Wednesday against her old boss, alleging he misused funds, inappropriately delegated campaign responsibilities to government employees and carried out a personal relationship with his driver, Harold Meza.

NBC 7 has been leading the way on that story as it unfolds, so we had intrepid reporter Wendy Fry on the podcast this week to break down the allegations.

Also on the show: Liam Dillon’s in-depth profile of Mark Arabo, who’s making big political moves in El Cajon and beyond (read parts one, two and three, and a little extra nugget here); what to look for in the Chargers stadium task force’s plan next week; where our readers stand on installing solar; fact-checking DA Bonnie Dumanis; L.A. Times reporter Tony Perry’s dude-bro fest of a story on the U-T sale and why El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells earned Goat of the Week. And if you missed it earlier this week, make time to listen to Scott Lewis’ interview with labor leader Mickey Kasparian to get a grasp of some fascinating political dynamics in town.
