The below is my comment to [this Opednews.com article] called, "How to Regain Our Democracy" by Cenk Uygur:
I spent two decades building a contracting business and then obtaining investment properties. I then spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and 5 years fixing up boarded up investment properties. Since, I wasn't connected police used prostitutes, drug dealers, and vandals to set me up for prison. I was against the cop run crime ring and drug dealing operation in Stafford Springs, Connecticut.
I was raising a family. Police were out to cause my divorce, estrangement from my daughter/family, and for me to lose my retirement, credit, home, and security. I was told before I was retaliated against that I was not allowed to write letters to the editor nor talk to elected officials about my concerns by police. I was threatened with arrest and prison for starting a Crime Watch and talking to elected officials. I was railroaded to prison.
I have zero faith in the organized crime that is an excuse for government. [my story and pics]
I have contacted Joe Courtney, the incumbent Democrat US Congressman in the Stafford Springs, CT, area, we'll see if he is for us, or against us, and we'll act to support, or vote him out asking key questions. We should do that nationwide and consider voting all incumbents out and voting independent only.

To whom it may concern:
Rob Simmons asked for my help in getting him elected the first time. I made a simple request of him before the election he lost. I asked all the divorced fathers, those who are members of a judicial reform network, and all my carpentry, painter, journalist, blogger, and other friends not to vote for Simmons, or to not vote. Simmons lost.
I am in Connecticut with others organizing, deciding who is for us, who is against us to be out in numbers at the polls.
My number one concern is my own case.
I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars acquiring, and then fixing up boarded up rental properties. I was a co-founder of the now defunct Stafford Springs Crime Watch. I was told by police officers that I wasn't allowed to speak at Crime Watch Meeting and was not allowed to propose legislation to help youth go good, not bad. I was told I would interfere with the police, court, and lawyer revenue collection system with my proposed legislation and that I would lose my property, contracting business built over 20 years, my daughter, go to prison and then be kicked out of Connecticut if I talked to state and federal elected officials. I was.
I had 2 druggie felon police informants threatening my life, harassing my then 14 year old daughter, even sexually, and I knew that if either was able to attack me on my Somers or Stafford property, only I would be arrested and could spend the rest of my life in prison for being attacked and beaten up on my own property. I would run from my vehicle to my back door, until I wasn't fast enough one day. I was attacked, only I was arrested, and I received a year in prison for resisting being beaten up by a felon who left death threats on my voicemail, stalked me, and would beat on my door yelling he was going to kill me waking my neighbors and tenants. I got a year in prison with no previous record for pepper spraying the knife wielding felon. I am estranged from my daughter, most of my family, can't own a home, and am barred from most jobs due to bogus criminal record.
I would like to become anonymous, changing my name, taking all of my blogs/videos down. I request help in expunging my bogus criminal record. Will you, or your people help, and/or write a letter in my behalf to the Governor? I need my record expunged to live. I would also like compensation for my nightmare, pennies on the dollar if possible. No money can compensate for my loss in faith of government, the police, the courts, AND loss of my family, retirement, credit, and the knowledge I may never meet, see, or talk to my own grandchildren because of police perjury and a rigged court case with no way out.
Will you help? Please acknowledge receipt of this email with a voicemail or email back.
