Subject: First Amendment
To: Attorney JoAnne Denison, NASGA, Probate Sharks, and all who are interested in the Human and Civil Rights of senior citizens and the disabled.
This flood of prosecutions of by the Illinois ARDC against attorneys for ‘whistle blower’ activities is mendacious in that there are certain activities that are inheriently wrong. In light of Himmel to deny a lawyer the First Amendment Right to voice continuing concerns over provable open and notorious (and repeated) miscreant activity occurring under color law is intolerable.
It is particularly aggregious when statements under oath during an evidence deposition by a presiding judge confirm the misconduct. The perpetuation of the wrong is obvious when these sworn statements are ignored and the efforts of the Illinois ARDC and other public officials are reasonably calculated to obfuscate facts that everyone knows to be a fact.
In my exceptions to the totally wrong recomendation of the hearing panel, is attached a copy of the deposition pages to which I refer. This testimony as well as the affidavits of respected citizens are of record as well. The key portions of the Sykes record are now ‘on line’ at this point in time there is no legitimate question that the Sodini notices required to protect the liberty and property interests of senior citizens were totally ignored, and there is no question that Mary Sykes and other persons similarly situated had their liberty and property rights taken from them by ‘judicial officials’ knowing that their action was wrong and without jurisdiction.
The Recent Chicago Tribune article disclosing the process of obtaining a Judgeship which placed into the context of the attempt by the Illinois ARDC to silence lawyers from speaking out is reprehensible and inherently wrong. The question by the Illinois ARDC attorney at my hearing as to whether not I would repent for communicating these facts with the Attorney General of the United States, the Honorable Eric Holder, gives emphasis to the problem.
(The deposition pages that I refer to are now on-line and can be accessed through various web-sites – Mr. Larry Chambers of my office will be happy to forward a copy of the entire deposition referred to or just the pages referred to supra)
