The DLSE has known the blogger's identity since June-2006, so why do they continue to disrupt DLSE office operations?

Today, DLSE peace officer/Senior Special Investigator Lee Pearson interviewed Santa Ana Wage Claim and Bureau (field enforcement) staff about this blog...are you friggin' kidding me? The DLSE is wasting taxpayer dollars on sending Lee Pearson all over California to ask people about rumors of the blogger?
BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU ASK---Lee Pearson came to Santa Ana prepared, maybe a little too prepared. He had a copy of the blog posting previously discussing Mr. Broadwater, and Pearson asked him if it was accurate. Bruce pontificated, and it was all on tape. From what was gathered, there is now the possible allegation that the DLSE-through Greg Rupp, Abigael Calva (or both?) might have prevented Mr. Broadwater from ever having been promoted while employed at the DLSE.
What do we know? Rupp tried to fire Broadwater because Rupp assumed that Mr. Broadwater lied on his state employment application. Broadwater sought legal representation to properly respond to Rupp's accusation, and Rupp subsequently halted his action. Ever since that time, Mr. Broadwater has never been promoted.
Acting Labor Commissioner Robert Jones and Deputy Chief Lupe Almaraz need to concern themselves more with the actions of Assistant Chief Greg Rupp and less with the content of this blog; they are wasting taxpayer funds (time, resources, equipment) with improper investigations. Isn't the public better served by the DLSE weeding out retaliatory managers who abuse their authority than attempting to harass, discriminate, and retaliate against a blogger.

VANESSA HOLTON is wasting taxpayer funds. Jones, Pearson, Rupp are just puppets following her orders.

It's no surprise to me or anyone else that's been around for a while - DLSE is very good at retaliation. It's sure time for a change, but doesn't look like it's going to happen in my lifetime. DLSE never wants to promote anyone qualified. If you dare to speak out against their blaring injustices, you're forever doomed and put on their list. I know that from personal experience - I don't even bother to try to promote any more- it's so biased and so obviously stacked. Why in the world would they want a well-qualified person as a manager? It would just make them look bad.
