Elena Sassower – New York’s Joan of Arc

This school teacher and judicial activist is one strong patriotic lady. She has been fighting to fix the corrupt New York State justice system for over 25 years. She has a very important lawsuit working its way through the system right now to help clean up the mess. Ms. Sassower has testified before the New York Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline. This is the same committee Mr. Kochan testified before back in 2015 on the corruption in the Cattaraugus County District Attorney’s office and how it was covered up. One courageous Senator in the 2009 had a hearing to look into the corruption in the in the disciplinary committees. They refused to doing anything because they corruption was so bad. The evidence showed that “New York’s court-controlled system of attorney discipline cannot survive an evidentiary presentation”

center-for-judicial-accountablityElena is a co-founder of Center for Judicial Accountability and maintains the website judge watch, an activist organization who is at the forefront of fighting judicial and attorney corruption in New York State and exposing how the disciplinary committees are nothing more than tools to keep good attorneys and judges under their control of a corrupt system and do nothing to help we the People, the citizens of New York. Both her mother and father were attorney’s and they lost their license to practice law because they tried to fix system for We the People. She was jailed for her activism. Her crime? Asking a question at a judicial nomination hearing;

“Mr. Chairman, there is citizen opposition to Judge Wesley based on his documented corruption as a New York Court of Appeals judge,” she read aloud. “May I testify?”

For reading a 24-word request to testify at a judicial appointment hearing on Capitol Hill, an act that qualified as “disruption of Congress,” Ms. Sassower was hit with six months’ incarceration—the maximum allowed by law. Despite the grave constitutional implications of her case, not one of the dozen civil rights organizations she’d asked for help came to her assistance: not the ACLU, not Public Citizen, not People for the American Way, not Common Cause. Jonathan Turley, who teaches constitutional law at George Washington University Law School, finds the Sassower case “extraordinary.” Her punishment is unprecedented for a congressional disrupter; it’s rare that even raucous outbursts result in charges, let alone jail terms.

Listen to her testimony before the same committee Mr. Kochan appeared before;

After discussing the issues we the people face here in New York with Ms. Sassower we will be teaming up with this courageous lady and help her get the word out here in western New York. She presently has a very important lawsuit proceeding through the court system to help bring it under control, and be looking into how corrupt county court clerks rig juries by stacking them with public employees.
