Doorbell Video Catches El Dorado County Supervisor Candidate Ray Nutting Taking Opponent’s Flier

EL DORADO COUNTY (CBS13) — Ring doorbell video shows El Dorado County Supervisor candidate Ray Nutting canvassing at a Cameron Park home and taking his opponent’s campaign literature from the door, putting it in his pocket, and walking away. Nutting read a statement over the phone about the video explaining his actions. “I saw a political flyer,” Nutting said. “I wanted to read it. I should have read it there and put it back. I made a mistake and I apologize.” Nutting’s opponent is former Cal Fire Chief Ken Pimlott, who says the video speaks for itself. “I don’t want to read into what he was thinking,” Pimlott said. “That was very disappointing. It just really speaks to integrity and ethics, and it’s really hurting the voters who want to make good choices.” The video shines a harsh spotlight on Nutting in his first attempt to re-enter politics after he was removed from his El Dorado County Supervisor office by a judge’s order in 2014 when he was convicted on 6 misdemeanor charges. The ruling came after Nutting was found not guilty of felony charges…

Children’s Receiving Home Of Sacramento’s Troubled History

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A 12-year-old girl is dead after being struck on Business 80 while trying to help a friend who ran onto the freeway. Both girls had come from the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento nearby on Auburn Boulevard, which has a long history of problems. The facility reportedly had more than 120 recent citations, according to reports published in 2017. But when CBS13 went to review those records on Thursday, they had been wiped clean from the state’s website. Officials said that’s because the facility was recently re-licensed last year. That means their records essentially started over. But, even those recent records give some indication of how those girls managed to run away on Wednesday night. Records reveal kids repeatedly left the home without permission, citing understaffing and staff sleeping on the job. In November, one resident brought someone back into the facility with them, and they were found in bed together. That resulted in the facility’s first citation under its new license. However, records show dozens of other concerning incidents. One child recently ended up in the emergency room when “staff failed…
