Rape, pedophilia, and sexual assault/ battery inn any manor is unacceptable! This is a crime, no matter if you are a political figure or not. We are petitioning the Federal Bureau of Investigations and California Gov. Brown to thoroughly investigate the mayor of Stockton CA , Anthony Silva, of multiple sexual assault/battery allegations that have been brought against him from 2004 till the present (2013). In 2005 Mayor Anthony Silva, then a member of the Stockton Unified School Board, was accused of filming underage girls changing their clothes in his bathroom. This matter was investigated by Stockton Unified School District Police, but the San Joaquin County District Attorney never filed charges. We have also learned of more sexual abuse allegations that are said to have taken place in February of 2012. No charges were filed then either. Now there seems to be another?! Once again, we are told that these accusations are being investigated. We don't believe this to be true. It is common knowledge that San Joaquin County has a long, notorious history of political corruption and scandals. This was even stated once by the United States Attorney during the Baxter Dunn scandal. The Stockton Police endorsed and supported Mayor Silva during his campaign. We cannot count on the Stockton Police to investigate one of their own. We feel that Mayor Anthony Silva used the trust he gained serving on the school board, working as an administrator of the Boys and Girls Club of Stockton, and now as mayor; to fullfill his secret sexually deviant driven agenda. We are calling on the F.B.I. and Gov. Brown to step in and take over this investigation at once. We also ask that Mayor Silva be placed on immediate leave from his political seat as the Mayor of Stockton CA w/out pay. We are asking that the F.B.I. also conduct interviews with Silva's victims and bring forth charges against him as they would any other average citizen facing these allegations. Immediate court ordered restraints preventing Silva from contacting the victims personally or through a third party is also in order. Finally, we ask that further court ordered restraints be placed on Mr. Anthony Silva, ordering him to stay away from the Stockton Boys and Girls Club, thus protecting the children there from being potential victims of Anthony Silva
