In the latest installment of The Corruption Chronicles, we bring to light the documented misconduct of County Manager Eric Brown, also known as Eric Brownstain. Through internal documentation, we unveil a troubling incident in which an unqualified individual, under Brown’s direction, made an improper placement in the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). This unauthorized placement, by an unauthorized worker, involved a tier 3 sexual predator with a criminal background that should have rendered them ineligible for inclusion.
In order to safeguard the privacy of the individuals involved, we have redacted the names of county employees and homeless individuals referenced in the documentation. Our focus remains on exposing the corruption facilitated by County Manager Eric Brown.
Improper HMIS Placement by an Unqualified Individual:
Within the documented timeline, a disconcerting event unfolds, revealing that an unqualified person, lacking the necessary expertise, was instructed by Eric Brown to place an individual in the HMIS system. This individual, a tier 3 sexual predator with a criminal background, that should have been disqualified from participation in the system altogether.
Violating Regulations and Prioritizing a Sexual Predator:
This incident raises grave concerns about Eric Brown’s decision to disregard established regulations and prioritize the placement of a sexual predator within the HMIS. The fact that an unqualified individual was given the authority to facilitate this unlawful placement reflects a clear breach of proper procedures and a disregard for the safety and well-being of the community.
Unethical Conduct and Abuse of Power:

The community demands swift and thorough action from its leaders to address these documented acts of misconduct. The prioritization of a sexual predator and the involvement of an unqualified individual in the placement process cannot be overlooked or tolerated. It is vital that a comprehensive investigation be conducted to hold all parties involved accountable for their actions.

Why is Brownstain still our county manager, despite manipulating the system and leveraging his position to keep his wife out of jail? She was caught with a blood alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit, involved in an accident, and yet received a mere slap on the hand. If it were you or me, we would be behind bars. How much more is too much? When will enough be enough? We have only scratched the surface of what we know, reserving our evidence for the courtroom. The fact that Eric Brownstain continues to hold his position as county manager speaks volumes about the state of corruption in Washoe County. Those we entrust with leadership roles seem to be turning a blind eye. Why?
We will win. People are going to be fired, at a minimum. Jail is coming for many as well. I’ve been right about everything, and I’m right about this too.
