Seriously Claudia? Did we read that correctly in the Syracuse Post Standard? You’ve come a long way since 2010 when you sat at my dining room table as a tabloid reporter claiming to be concerned about parental equality. That’s when I took my sacrificial stand against child support abuse and father discrimination.
Now you claim to be concerned about our veterans but have done nothing to even look into the “many” veteran suicides, father alienation and seizure of parental authority which has led to fatherless freaks of both major parties who commit these mass murders. That’s because you are a divorcee who once benefited from the Title IV-D entitlement program known as the Child Support Standards Act which is costing federal taxpayers billions of dollars.
Claudia has yet to respond to my reports of Title IV-D abuses and my petition to New York’s Legislature when she served as my Assemblywoman. But her politicizing of a horrific event was horrific enough, and I cannot allow such generalizations to go unanswered. I remain one of her constituents, a Democrat who served the largest city in her district at one time as an elected Democrat councilman and corporation counsel.
Her news quote came while I was preoccupied in Manhattan last week assisting victims of corrupt courts, an issue she should familiarize herself with considering how she has relied on her father’s reputation to be elected to public office after numerous failed efforts prior to her visit at my home. As a state judge, John Tenney was no honorable man as I can prove after winning my first two appeals against him right out of law school.
The Syracuse Post Standard newspaper arrived at my New Hartford home with a February 22, 2018 article (page A16) which informed Claudia Tenny’s 22nd District constituents that mass murderers are primarily Democrats. For whatever bizarre reason, she made those remarks on Talk 1300 Radio in my now neighboring city of Utica, New York.
When called to task by a Syracuse reporter about her non-existent proof to support such a brazen conclusion, she simply responded with a prepared statement which dodged the proof issue altogether saying: “I will continue to stand up for law abiding citizens who are smeared by anti-gun liberal elitists.”
Say what? I am a lifelong Democrat who despises liberal views but I don’t label my political party adversaries, be they Liberal or Republican (as Claudia is), mass murderers. She claims to be a Conservative, but I was endorsed as a Democrat by the Conservative Party in my last run for major public office. So what’s up with this Democrat generalization Claudia?
We need to take a closer look at this woman as a member of Congress because she may well be a hater of numerous ethnic groups not just entire political parties. When her former colleague in the New York Assembly, Anthony Brindisi, announced his run against Claudia last summer, she replied with generalizations about his dad, Louis Brindisi, a reputed mob lawyer (read all about it in my recent book, Satan’s Docket). Her scheme to label the son was answered by Italian-American groups outraged by her stereotypes.
It makes you wonder what Claudia thinks about German-Americans, Native-Americans, Arab-Americans and African-Americans, among others, which comprise the majority of her constituents. I was present at a Rome Polish Home event when Claudia was campaigning for Congress in a failed primary against then incumbent Richard Hanna. What sort of undisclosed stereotypes lurked in her mind among those “type” of people?
As my 6,000 plus followers have been informed time and again, I supported Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton. I did so to the point of filing a motion to disqualify Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from my then pending case before the Supreme Court due to her political attacks from chambers against Donald Trump, then a private citizen not yet endorsed by the Republican Party for president.
Over the years, I was there supporting candidates, federal, state and local, regardless of party affiliation for principled reasons, not the almighty buck. Meanwhile elitists like Claudia were hiding on the belief such candidates would lose. It’s called courage, the kind demonstrated by great Democrats such as John Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Edmund Muskie.
For Claudia’s benefit next time she stumps for votes at the Polish Clubs of her district, Edmund Muskie was a Polish-American, United States Senator and candidate for Vice President with Hubert Humphrey who lost to one of the most corrupt politicians in American history, Richard Nixon, a Republican. As a Republican herself, does that mean we should label Claudia a corrupt politician?
As concerned parents we must get involved in politics and the election process before our rights are forever lost to the state. We see the”evidence” of it everywhere, a veritable silent and suppressed epidemic at the root of most other societal problems. As an elitist herself, Claudia just doesn’t get it on her high horse today. It’s time to knock her off. Won’t you join me. Call anytime at (315) 796-4000.

Having just returned from a whistleblowers summit and conference in Washington D.C., I had the privilege of meeting numerous victims of government abuse. Of all that were featured, few exceeded my ordeal. Indeed, because I heard about the summit at the last minute, the sponsors could not get me on the speakers agenda which had already been formalized. However I was allowed to present my case followed by an interview with Summit sponsors for future publication.
My focus was different than most presenters who decried retributions by federal and state agencies (executive branch of government). I was determined to obtain protection for that unique category of citizens known as judicial whistleblowers. These are the ones who expose corruption in the judicial branch, the forums created by the people to bring justice for all the other whistleblowers. At present, there is no real protection for us as my ordeal has abundantly demonstrated.
From my pedophile custody judge removed from family court (Bryan Hedges) to divorce judges soliciting bribes to fix custody cases (Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo), we have a growing crisis on our hands. These are judges taken down only because of courageous whistleblowers. One was a father-attorney in divorce. Another was a mom who lost custody of her child. How many more have never been caught? Without judicial whistleblowers, the other types may never see justice even with the federal Whistleblower Protection Act now in effect.
For this reason, Judicial whistleblowers need legal protection and monetary compensation for the risks and injuries they endure. After exposing widespread corruption among wealthy Americans dodging tax liabilities in Swiss banks, whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld was wrongly prosecuted by the IRS and sent to prison for a thirty month term. Ultimately he recovered $102 million as part of a new IRS whistleblower protection program.
His ordeal has striking similarities to mine, wrongfully prosecuted by unethical ethics lawyers who were ultimately allowed to resign for falsifying their time sheets (Albany chief counsel Peter Torncello, Steven Zayas and Elizabeth Devane). My children, licenses and livelihood were all seized in retaliation for the widespread corruption I have been exposing to no avail before a self-regulating profession and court system. Less than 10% of all commission complaints in New York and California are even looked into.
This autumn, my book, Satan’s Docket, will be published. It exposes my shocking ordeal while serving as an instruction manual for all parents affected by our nation’s divorce and family courts. Unsure whether the title was a good one, all doubt was removed this past week in Washington with the presentation and release of Birkenfeld’s book titled, Lucifer’s Bank.
In an effort to pave the way for judicial whistleblower protection in New York, I presented a 25-page, $25 million claim before the New York Legislature. After personal visits to legislative offices, I finally got a call from legislative counsel for the Assembly Judiciary Committee (Weinstein). The uphill battle I faced was mutually detailed.
I have yet to receive replies of any kind from my former Assembly representative, Claudia Tenney, campaigning for Congress at the time, my Senate representative, Joseph Griffo, who declared me his friend time and again, or Anthony Brindisi, Assembly representative in the district where my law practice was shut down. All this occurred within the span of a few years after 23 unblemished years as a successful civil rights attorney and ten years as a model parent without even a complaint before any child protection agency.
Please share this post for the general benefit of all Americans. As U.S. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley stated at a recent Whistleblower Day celebration, “You can’t fix something if you don’t know it’s broken. That’s just common sense.” But it’s much more than that for judicial whistleblowers: “You can’t get justice if corruption is being concealed by those who are supposed to deliver it.”
