Ely-Is "conspiracy against rights" criminal in nature? I am told the FBI does not file simple civil rights suits and cases must be criminal in nature. I am trying to get them to see this case is criminal in nature. This is not about me per se, it is about union members throughout Illinois being deprived of their right to be fairly represented and this seems like it is criminal since it is obvious the saved funds go to union agendas, like getting favored politicians elected.
Ely,I was glad to hear that "conspiracy against rights" is criminal in nature because I think this is what this case is all about. The union and the IELRB act in concert to deny union members their rights to be fairly represented in order to not have to file expensive law suits. This helps keep the crooked unions in Illinois to keep their coffers healthy. I already reported the case to the U.S. Attorney and he referred me to the FBI. The FBI has called me several times and recently asked me to be more specific in my evidence, name names and detail acts I know that are helping to deprive union members of their rights. The union has not provided fair representation for over 25 years and the IELRB dismisses EVERY case for fair rep that comes to it. Does this sound like to you it is a criminal case that the FBI should prosecute? Any other suggestions as to how I can get the FBI to file these criminal charges and not stall me by always telling me this is a civil rights case and not criminal. Frankly, I think they are stalling for time to complete an investigation and I will be disappointed if indictments don't come down soon.
Ely-You have been very kind and helpful- Just a couple more things and I will sign off as a happy client. Why would the feds decide not to file charges in a case that is fueling union power and corruption in Illinois? You said to "get an attorney" I have refused to hire an attorney because I always believed that we did not have to pay for our rights. The FBI spokesman just told me to get more publicity and that might spur the feds he works for to file charges. A Chicago Tribune investigative reporter is coming to my house on Monday to see my documents and I hope he will help me in exposing this case. I have documents where I think these crooks have indicted themselves and think I know how to stay away from defamation. It has been a problem for me all these years because I just don't think we should have to pay to have our rights defended. Where does it state that in the Constitution? I am deathly afraid now that there are many politicians and people in federal agencies who believe that certain rights must be paid for. Please answer/comment and I will not write back and, as stated, I will sign off as a happy camper. Thanks. Respectfully,
