Only by the grace of God am I still alive sending you this message. I remain in New York City where I am advocating for a federal investigation of the Oneida County Sheriff, Family Court and certain judges who engaged in an unprecedented attack upon my free speech. So horrific were their abuses of public office that my life and family were placed needlessly in danger. It is reminiscent of Deputy Kurt Wyman who was also placed needlessly in harm’s way under the administration of Sheriff Robert Maciol.
The public admission of a “leaked” APB to the media by Sheriff Maciol, his deputy who abused security duties to provide free service of process to a private litigant (Kelly Hawse-Koziol) and a Utica, New York city judge who abused judicial office to avenge a public censure by the Judicial Conduct Commission are only the tip of the iceberg. New York’s corrupt Fifth Judicial District is at the center of it all, those attorneys whose livelihoods are being threatened by my reform efforts. There are also those who made defamatory public statements that will face a civil lawsuit when my work here is done.
Recently, New York 22nd District Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney, leaked out her own memo depicting opponent, Anthony Brindisi, as some kind of mobster whose family would react with violent acts upon her staff. She claimed this would occur because his political career was coming to an end (evidently by her presumed victory in November). She gave only vague events and possibilities of retaliation, thereby proving that this was all a scam to dredge up dirt by association and ethnic heritage.
When called to task by the New York Post, Claudia back-pedaled, claiming she did not mean to refer to the younger Brindisi (law partner and Assemblyman), and not even his father who was charged at one time with seven felonies stemming from a drug ring operated from his law office. She was referring to unnamed “thugs” somehow connected to the Brindisi family. The elder Brindisi was a reputed mob lawyer. A young attorney in the same law office was found tied to a chair, gagged and dead in the basement.
Welcome to my home town where I served as city councilman and corporation counsel. Known once as “Sin City,” the abuse inflicted on me for exposing corruption here should not surprise you. When news was “leaked” to the media behind this major man-hunt against me for “child support” (a conscientious attorney never even accused of a crime), there was no concern expressed by Claudia for me as one of her constituents. She knew my ordeal when interviewing me in my home in 2010 as a secondary media representative prior to winning her first election. She knew the stand I was making for abused fathers and non-custodial mothers. But evidently it was only her own interests that were important.
I filed complaints with Sheriff Maciol, the Judicial Conduct Commission and Chief Judge Janet DiFiore in January of this year outlining the crimes committed against me and even predicting what was to come. Not a single one gave me the courtesy of a reply, leading to the logical conclusion that crimes by judges, lawyers and court staff were perfectly acceptable. Under these circumstances, and our Constitution, the citizenry is entitled to fend for itself. That is how our nation began.
Now it is all before the United States Supreme Court. Today, I received notice that my motion for stay filed during the time of Judge Gerald Popeo’s warrant was formally docketed (dated September 4, 2018). It is currently being considered by Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg. It has interesting parallels to the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings with the twist that men are now becoming a discriminated class in America. Indeed the first issue presented asks our high court to take up that very question. You can view the entire petition on-line on the Supreme Court website, search docket, Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, et. al. Case No. 18-278.
In closing, I want to thank those around the country who sought to give me support and assistance, most importantly those who combined to make the support payment needed to lift the Popeo warrant. We need to share this post and wage a campaign for accountability never seen before. Corruption is growing at all levels of government while the rest of us who follow the rules are abused as victims. I got no calls from my daughters. The alienation for money waged by their “custodial parent” Kelly Hawse-Koziol would make Satan herself cringe.
