OPEN LETTER to: New York State Governor Kathy Hochul
OPEN LETTER TO:New York State Governor Kathy Hochul
Dear Soon-To-Be-Governor Hochul,
Do you know what’s better than you being sworn in as New York’s next Governor?
That’s right, NOTHING !
New Yorkers deserve a leader who will restore their faith in their government, and as soon as you are legally authorized, it is imperative that you take immediate action regarding the widespread corruption in and about New York’s System of Justice.
Sadly, New York’s judges, court employees and those seeking “justice” in New York are disgraced everyday by the lawlessness that exists in and about New York’s state legal system, where ethics oversight and proper accountability does not exist.
While the structure of the state justice system is sound, it has, in practice, been unhinged by self-dealing corruption, and abused by those who can- leaving a total void of any legal integrity or legitimate oversight.
It is respectfully requested that you immediately shut down The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct (the “CJC”) and all NYS Court System so-called “ethics” oversight committees. The Murphy Report, describes a courageous act conducted under another Governor named Cuomo, and where an Appellate Division Presiding Judge ordered armed officers to shut down the corrupt Manhattan attorney “ethics” committee (the “DDC”). New Yorkers need a Governor who will exercise her leadership and order the NYS Police into action.

You should know that since 2008, now Co-Governor Andrew Cuomo and Co-Governor Joe Percoco have been fully aware of the extent of the corruption of New York’s “ethics” oversight entities. They advised that they “couldn’t do anything for political reasons.” Imagine that, huh?
All the best as New York’s 57th Governor !
