Wherefore the Mitt Hate?

Snow Pond, NH -

Here in New Hampshire, I am a transplanted Massachusan. But when I lived in Mass, I was a transplanted Washingtonian. Although I lived in the Bay State for two years I have never voted in a major election (opting out of the 2006 foregone conclusions of Ted Kennedy, Deval Patrick and John Olver). Furthermore, while there, I had my eyes set North and West, up to New Hampshire and perpetually back to Olympia. Mass politics never really interested me outside of the Presidential candidacy of John Kerry, the legend of Teddy Kennedy, and the olden hijinx of Willie Weld.

So Mitt Romney never really concerned me, especially since it was clear from the day I set foot in the state that he wouldn't run for a second term in a race he certainly would have lost. But the thing that really struck me was how much disdain my friends had for Governor Romney. Maybe they were just a bunch of single-minded liberals who repulsed at the thought of their Republican governor, but it always seemed like more than that. There was real, genuine disdain in their voice. I guess familiarity breeds contempt, for I know my own feelings toward the likes of Slade Gorton.

Nevertheless, it has remained a pebble in my boot ever since. What's the deal with Mitt Romney? I haven't followed him too much on the trail, and if anything I have preferred his commercials to those of any other GOP candidate, whether he is presenting himself as a fresh face or implying vigor and wisdom. I mean, the GOP has to pick somebody. Well, today's Washington Post has a long article about Governor Romney. While it highlights many of his strengths, it also details the political betrayal felt by many in Massachusetts and sets the tone for what we may be able to expect in the future, should he last beyond February 5.

There is a chance to battle big and see the issue in lights.

Please look below at the foward message which was sent Directly to Colm F Connolly himself

We have provided proof of over 100 statutory violations in the bankruptcy matter of eToys 01-706 (Del Bankr. 2001)
The Dept of Justice did not seek disqualification of the attorneys who admitted to filing multiple, intentionally false, Rule 2014 affidavits.

Contrary to their oath of office, 28 USC 586(a)(3)(F) and in direct violation of 18 USC 3057(a) the United States Trustee actually & speciously sought immunity for the felony violations and the US Trustee has aggressively sought to assist defrauding our Court approved contract work by seeking to strike and expunge our proofs of fraud and perjury by powerful law firms connected to Mitt Romney.

The Asst US Trustee Frank Perch did motion to disgorge Traub $1.6 million, but mentioned nothing about the false affidavits of Morris Nichols (MNAT)

The Director of the Dept of Justice EOUST emailed us that he would take care of the issues.

The the US Attorney for the new Region 3 Trustee, Mark Kenney offered the right to circumvent the law and a "get out of jail free card" to the perpetrators.

MNAT represented both Bain and eToys when it the court approved the selling of the eToys assets to Bain. This is Collusion to defraud the estate for tens of millions of dollars.MNAT now represents Bain in the KB bankruptcy case (Del Bankr 04-10120).

We have now found the missing link, just this past week, that offers explanation of the "nolle prosequi" of the Dept of Justice, that being the reason why the US Attorney's office has refused to prosecute MNAT. For the US Attorney for Delaware is Colm F Connolly. Connolly was (and may be still) a partner at MNAT when eToys sold the assets to MNAT's other client Bain.

Lawrence Friedman, Frank Perch and Debra Yang (Pres Bush Corp Fraud Task Force) have all subsequently resigned from their key positions at the Dept of Justice, without providing an sufficient remedy of the matter.
The US Attorney in Delaware who has refused to prosecute MNAT or Bain is Colm F Connolly, who is now being considered for a Fed Judge position. As such Connolly's resume is now public knowledge.
While it seems to be a good career move not to investigate or prosecute your partners, associates and clients. Especially when such is connected to your future boss, a Presidential hopefull. (Miit Romney owns Bain,KB, eToys, Stage Stores, SanKaty)

It is however, a matter of grave concern when eventually get "caught"!

(please see and the US Trustee Disgorge Motion eToys Docket item 2195, the Dept of Justice Settlement and immunity motion eToys docket item 2201 and the Court's Opinion approving the Settlement motion docket item 2302 which can be seen here
The Disgorge motion only addresses 3 of the more than 100 statutory violations we have proven. They seek to cover up all the others with the Stipulation to Settle providing illegal permission to Circumvent the Law with the following clause agreed upon

"WHEREAS the United States Trustee shall not seek to compel TBF to make any additional disclosures"

Such latitude to deliberately circumvent the Law, specifically 327(a) is not even permitted of a Federal Justice, as can be seen in the cases such as In re Middleton Arms, First Jersey Securites and In re United Artist.
Which states, the Courts are forbidden from contravening clear, unambiguous statutory mandates of 327(a).
A finding of non disclosure of conflict of interest mandates disqualification.

Subject: I would not count on that Delaware Dist Court position if I were you

Dear Mr. Connolly

The attached item has already been received by the Post, the WSJ, the Times and 40,000 other entities
including US Government entities, law professors and more.

It continues to be broadcast at 5000 at a time.

You can of course, put a halt to everything, state you made a mistake and stop the fraud.

Or you can hope that those whom you have been protecting will get Mitt Romney elected
and increase your powers, their powers and abilities to make this all go away.

The failure to prosecute or appoint an independent fiduciary is a criminal violation when it
involves over $300 million in fraud and perjury issues of multiple states, multiple cases, similar
parties, over mutliple years by admitted false Rule 2014 Affidavits that has facilitated
Racketeering efforts on a grand scale directly connected to your former firm and clients.
(by the way, the former part is an assumption - I hope for your sake it is former)

While it may be quite possible that the multiple threats against my life will be successful
the fact that we have now discovered your conflict of interest in not prosecuting the etoys
matter will not remain unaddressed.

You can quash Haas as it is well established how little our significance is.

Such logic is how all these nefarious acts were discovered.

As it now seems that your staunch refusal to prosecute is an all or nothing
refusal in reckless disregard of the facts.

One must therefore assume thatI have little time left before the collective team of appellee's, including the
imprimatur of Washington D .C now entering full handedly in the Dept of Justice
task of silencing us, one way or the other.

Therefore we shall continue to shout from the rooftops until remedy or damnation.

It is harsh enough a reality that our own attorneys are guilty of MisPrison in refusing to
address the Fraud upon the Court to the proper authorities. Which was compounded by
an email threat of a former Trustee Henry Heiman warning us to "back off" stating that
Susan Balaschak of TBF warned me the failure to back off would result in our failing
to be paid our Court approved monies, that our career would suffer and further retaliations
would occur.

Thus far all those threats have been achieved, combined with Paul Traub's boasting of being
"connected" one has to take the new series of threats as probable.

When it crosses the line of "or else" threats of liberty and physical well being,
with Dept of Justice complicity and breach of fiduciary duty, then we have no choice.

If they had done the right thing, settled and made some amends previously,
when we told them no to their gratuitous offer, this all could have
been avoided. The closing of Kronish Lieb and Traub firm is not a sufficient remedy.

You have violated your oath of office.

We ask that you act appropriately or resign!

If it means you will "get me" then by all means, let's go at it!
