CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS ASKS DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO INVESTIGATE ROBERT SAND'S OFFICE...

CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS HAS OFFICIALLY ASKED THE UNITED STATES ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL RONALD WEICH TO INVESTIGATE THE VERMONT WINDSOR COUNTY PROSECUTORS OFFICE FOR IT'S HANDLING OF THE PROSECUTION OF VINNIE'S MURDER. CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL TO ANSWER OUR PLEA FOR HELP. WE HAVE WRITTEN TO 4 SENATORS, 2 GOVERNORS, ATTORNEYS GENERAL AND MANY OTHER GOVERNMENT AND LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS. ATTORNEY GENERAL SORRELL EVEN KICKED US OUT OF HIS OFFICE! WE HAVE HEARD FROM NO ONE...EXCEPT CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS! HER AIDE, VANNA HOWARD, ANSWERED ME IMMEDIATELY AND MET WITH ME PERSONALLY TO DISCUSS OUR CONCERNS OVER THE HANDLING OF MY SONS MURDER.

THIS WAS AT THE BEGINNING STAGES OF OUR INVESTIGATION. VANNA WAS VERY UNDERSTANDING AND SYMPATHETIC YET, AT FIRST, A BIT SKEPTICAL. AFTER ALL, IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT A JUSTICE SYSTEM WOULD DO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. BUT SHE LISTENED TO MY STORY. THEN I GAVE HER THE EVIDENCE I HAD AT THAT TIME. SOON HER SKEPTICISM TURNED TO DISBELIEF. I COULD SEE HER ASTONISHMENT AT SEEING WHAT THE DOCUMENTS WERE SHOWING. AT THAT POINT I WAS GLAD SOMEONE EVEN TOOK THE TIME TO SIT AND LISTEN TO ME.I FELT GRATEFUL FOR THAT COURTESY ALONE. I DID NOT EXPECT MUCH, AFTER ALL EVERYONE ELSE HAD TOSSED ME ASIDE, IGNORED MY CONCERNS BUT NOT NIKI TSONGAS OR  VANNA. SHE WAS DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING. SHE TOOK MY PACKAGE OF EVIDENCE AND PROMISED TO GO OVER EVERYTHING AND GET BACK IN TOUCH WITH ME. I LEFT THERE FEELING VINDICATED. THAT SOMEONE HAD FINALLY BELIEVED ME.

OVER THE NEXT YEAR AND A HALF SHE KEPT IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH ME. I KEPT HER UPDATED ON ALL EVENTS OF THE CASE AND OF ALL NEW EVIDENCE THAT HAD EMERGED. SHE REQUESTED I SEND CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS ALL THE INFORMATION I HAD. IN MARCH OF 2011 I SENT VANNA AND CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS A LARGE EVIDENCE PACKAGE OF FACTS AND INFORMATION I HAD COMPILED. IT CONSISTED OF POLICE STATEMENTS, GRAND JURY TESTIMONY, COURT DOCUMENTS, POLICE DOCUMENTS, NOTES, E-MAILS, TAPES, MEETING MINUTES, AND CD’S. A MOUNTAIN OF INFORMATION I HAVE GATHERED OVER 2 ½ YEARS. A FEW DAYS LATER I RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM HER, ALONG WITH A LETTER FROM CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS TO ASST. ATTORNEY GENERAL RONALD WEICH, SAYING THAT THEY WOULD BE SENDING THE PACKAGE OUT WITH AN OFFICIAL REQUEST FROM THE CONGRESSWOMAN ASKING FOR A REVIEW OF THE PROSECUTION OF THIS CASE BY THE VERMONT WINDSOR COUNTY PROSECUTORS OFFICE HANDLING OF THIS CASE.

WE WERE ELATED! FINALLY SOMEONE LISTENED! SOMEONE CARED ENOUGH TO TAKE ACTION! CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS IS THAT RARE POLITICIAN, A RARE BREED THAT SAYS THEY CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE AND REALLY MEANS IT! SHE HAS PROVED THAT TO US. OUT OF EVERYONE I HAVE WRITTEN TO, AND THERE WERE DOZENS, SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO CARED ENOUGH ABOUT ONE OF HER CONSTITUENTS TO TAKE ACTION. THE ONLY ONE WITH ENOUGH GUTS TO GO AGAINST A SYSTEM OUT OF CONTROL. A SYSTEM THAT HAS RELIED ON THEIR STANDING OF OFFICE AND THE RELUCTANCE OF ANYONE TO GET INVOLVED TO, UNTIL NOW, ADMINISTER THEIR OWN BRAND OF JUSTICE. CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS, A LEADER WITH TRUE VALUES AND A GENUINE CONCERN FOR ONE INSIGNIFICANT FAMILY, THAT STOOD UP TO A JUSTICE SYSTEM OUT OF CONTROL AND SAID “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”

FOR THIS WE WILL ALWAYS BE THANKFUL TO CONGRESSWOMAN TSONGAS FOR MAKING US FEEL THAT WE DO MATTER. WHO HAS GIVEN MY SON SOME DIGNITY IN DEATH WHEN ALL OTHERS HAVE FAILED HIM. FOR THAT WE WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL!
