SENATOR CLINTON CONDEMNED BY CENTER FOR JUDICIAL ACCOUNTABILITY, INC.

For Constitutional Violations In Not Protecting Her Constituent’s First Amendment Rights

When Her Own Staff Counsel Acted To Prevent Opposition Testimony At Judicial Confirmation Public Hearing


On May 22, 2003, White Plains, NY resident, Elena Ruth Sassower, Co-Founder and Coordinator of the Center for Judicial Accountability, Inc, rose, as the closing gavel came down at a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Public Confirmation Hearing Richard Wesley nomination to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and respectfully asked: “Mr. Chairman, there’s citizen opposition to Judge Wesley based on his documented corruption as a New York Court of Appeals judge. May I testify?” Without answering the question, then Chairman Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) had Ms. Sassower forcibly removed from the hearing room by D.C. Capitol Police. She was handcuffed behind her back, arrested, incarcerated for 21 hours, and thereafter prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for “Disruption of Congress.”

Prior to the hearing, Ms. Sassower visited Senator Clinton’s Washington, D.C. office and requested her to withdraw her announced support for the Wesley nomination. Ms. Sassower supplied documentation substantiating his corruption of the NY Court of Appeals. Instead of probing the very serious documented charges of her constituent, a longtime judicial reform activist, Senator Clinton’s Staff Counsel called the Secret Service. In turn, D.C. Capitol Police telephoned Ms. Sassower threatening that if she came to the Public Hearing and requested to testify in opposition to the Wesley nomination, she would be arrested.

On June 28, 2004, despite recommendations of the Probation Department and the U.S. Attorney’s Office that there be NO jail-time, D.C. Superior Court Judge Brian F. Holeman sentenced her to the maximum six months in jail, with a maximum fine, without bail, and denied her repeated requests for a stay pending appeal, after she declined his long list of probation conditions. These included a direction that she “stay away from and inside the United States Capitol Complex,” have no contact with Senator Clinton and her staff, and “write and send letters of apology to Senator Clinton,” among others, “…which state…your remorse for any inconvenience caused.” When Ms. Sassower said she would not write such letters because she would “not lie,” Judge Holeman ordered her taken straight to the D.C. Jail, with no opportunity to go home and settle her affairs. There she spent the July 4th weekend in solitary confinement. She was not released from prison until December 23, 2004.

By contrast, at a May 7, 2003 U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, during testimony of then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, a group of eight protestors, loudly and repeatedly shouted “Fire Rumsfeld for war crimes!” and unfurled a banner that read “Fire Rumsfeld” before the protestors were escorted from the building. None of the eight were arrested or charged with “Disruption of Congress.” Ms. Sassower’s arrest on May 22, 2003, a mere 15 days later, was an unprecedented violation of her First Amendment and other constitutionally guaranteed rights.

In all that time, before, during, and since Ms. Sassower’s arrest, imprisonment, and release after her six-month incarceration, Senator Clinton did not lift one finger to help her constituent, whose arrest and imprisonment her own office had instigated – closing her eyes and ears to the appeals of other constituents and outraged members of the public from all over the country and abroad that she initiate remedial action. Ironically, following Ms. Sassower’s release from jail, she was voted 2004 “White Plains Person of the Year/Defender of the Constitution” in her hometown. Still no word on the subject from now Candidate Clinton. Yet, husband Bill says she is a “world-class genius”… with an unbroken record of making decisions that have had a positive change in other people's lives.”

I m not surprised by Clinton FROM WNY! This lady is very, very tight with the HUGE ,STATE political family of ARTHUR EVE. HER CLOSENESSis tightly tied to OCA through THE MARRIAGE OF EVE;S SON.... to the DAUGHTER of the only BLACK CHEIF CLERK IN OCA'S HISTORY...here in BUFFALO CITY COURT! This family of EVE'S, ONLY daughter also worked and was hired by CLINTON, as an atty for HER IN DC! THIS EVE DAUGHTER just made an attempt too run for A MAJOR STATE office in albany this past year!
Will Clinton attack OCA with these connections..HELL NO! MY VOTE IS FOR OBAMA AND LEAVE THE CLINTON'S ALONE REGARDING THE NY COURT SYSTEM....THEY ARE WAY TO BIG POLITICAL ASS KISSERS TO INTERFERE WITH THIS ENTITY!

Oh by the way, EVE'S son moved his entire family from their newly purchased home in Maryland, to NYC in 2005, to work on CLINTON'S campaign, as he did with BILL'S. I knew CLINTON was running for the presidency...one year before she announced, because of this move. This person's job was obtained by BILL CLINTON for his work on BILL'S campaign and he can take a leave whenever he wants for THE CLINTON'S political efforts. POLITICS is a far reaching and nasty intertwining. Fighting OCA takes alot of inside information and great investigation...with tons of back watching! Always good to have a mole who plays ahead of these monsters! You do know that there are people that are not political and have tons of money..find and use them!

years ago i contacted her senate office about something my former lawyer did that was illegal.
Her staff member found i funny when i asked them to have the Manhattan disciplinary commitee
review my complaint.
I will still vote for her if she is the party pick.
(R) or (D) neither will do anything or turn down thier money.

Hillary only wants to help her agenda of going back to the White House. She is just like the rest crooked.

OH MY GOD ! I never knew any of this stuff was going on. Look at www.judgewatch.org - I can't believe this.

I'm very, very disappointed in Hillary by ignoring our own problems in Westchester and New York concerning ethics.

Sassower is largely considered a HERO to ANYONE who knows the facts about her. Though I've never met Sassower, but I have met Hillary, I say toss Hillary's butt in jail and make Sassower the NY Senator!

I have had the pleasure of speaking with Ms. Sassower and she is an angel, and yes i would vote for her in a New York Minute. Unforunately, they would never let her in because she is toooo honest, and morally correct.

I have written Ms. Clinton several times and have gotten no replies. She allows corruptions to continue with the judge. To me she is not an honest person. I would be afraid to have her as president.

HILLARY is in Iowa...she doesn't care about NY...NO WAY! Her phony ass is pretending to represent us...check her record and success!
Again, Hillary will never put a check on OCA...too many close connections that are sensitive to many, especially JUDY KAYE OF OCA!(KAYE WORSHIPS THESE WNY'ERS THAT THE CLINTONS ADORE)
If HILLARY ever becomes PRESIDENT, we will never see a cleanup of the NY COURT SYSTEM. Remember, Bill Clinton started the closeness with the people, still sensitively intertwined FROM WNY, with OCA, so he will also be a souce to reckon with! To me, HILLARY can never be my president because she ,as a woman, is raised to please....and that unfortunately means lots of corruption she does not have the wish to offend any of those involved and then will keep them hidden as a political feature she dreads to handle...... much worse than Bill! HILLARY will replace cigars and mints with laughter and secrets.

Boy oh boy. I would like to see some justice to finally go to Sassower. I admire how she stood tall admist the lawyer-gangsters in Westchester.

I say we should have a protest at Clinton's Office. How the hell is she going to run this country when she can't even TALK about the court corruption in her own state or even the friggin county where she lives ?!?!?!?!

I e-mailed HILLARY in Aug of this year ,about an SSD claim that Soc. Sec. tried to settle before a hearing..which would have been held in Nov. 2009! In this e-mail, i requested that her office e-mail me to let me know how long the reply would take and if they could work on this issue, (the STATE a person lives in handles Soc. Sec. using federal guidelines, until the administrative hearing officer renders a decision).
Since i heard nothing from her for weeks, i worked on the claim using 2 lawyers, myself and my local soc.sec office and resolved the entire case to my satisfaction... long before HILLARY'S office called.A 20- something BOY eventually called me and he had no clue why HILLARY could not handle this unusual mis-handling of a soc.sec. claim as my senator. He dis-interestingly responded, that he did not know why she could not and what she really did handle, but certainly it was not my case. After this response, i was postively convinced i would never vote for HILLARY for anything! If you want to be someone, at the very least....surround yourself with intelligence! I group her with the infamous judy de-kaye.... make them disappear!

I now see what people think of HILLARY in the mid-west! She dumped in third place...wow... people sure are a lot smarter than we think! Do you think they tried to call her about some issues too? I hope this momentum continues!

Anonymous said...

Does HILLARY think that NY is a shoe-in for her? Maybe she should check her office to see how many calls for help were answered by her or directed to an appropriate agency....or answered at all! She truly takes her constituents for granted...she better look out...i"M WAY TOO impressed with OBAMA and have been for months. Clinton is too overtly political and phony and will find the NY court system too much of a hot bed to investigate. I think we may have to deal with her as a senator until her re-election! OK with me!
