Bob Barr rips into a very unethical Ken Buck: An under the radar story

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Here are some fascinating tidbits:

--Ken Buck, Colorado's Republican Senate candidate, was once an assistant federal prosecutor.

--There was an Aurora gun dealer who sold guns illegally and had 37 counts thrown at him. This was a violation of federal law, nothing to sneeze at.

-- Ken Buck didn't pursue the prosecution.

--Ken Buck shared information with the defense team. That's right, he tipped them off.  How's that for law enforcement? Then he resigned. Was he forced to?

--Ken Buck was reprimanded... by a Republican U.S. Attorney.  A partisan witch hunt? Not so much.

--The illegal gun dealer benefited from Ken Buck's unethical, sleazy behavior.  He was convicted of a misdemeanor.

--The gun dealer donated to Ken Buck's campaign.

Bob Barr, former Republican Congressman, a former prosecutor, someone who is on the board of the NRA, has written a piece for the Denver Post:

When an assistant federal prosecutor is reprimanded by the Department of Justice for improperly disclosing internal government deliberations about a pending case to a defense attorney, it is not something that can or should be sloughed off as a youthful indiscretion. [...]

This is unfortunate, because the episode raises legitimate concerns about ethics, professionalism and loyalty in one of the most sensitive of public jobs — that of a federal prosecutor.  [...]

Buck's clearly improper communication to a defense attorney about a pending prosecution was not only contrary to ethical and professional standards that govern attorneys; it also represented an act of disloyalty toward his superior — U.S. Attorney Strickland.

There's your fine, upstanding GOP patriot. Law and order all the way.

Let's put this story back on the radar.

    This pattern of behavior seems to be the norm for Ken Buck. My former employers, Dream Stone, Inc. filed a fraudulent lien on my home. I am now being prosecuted for harassment by Mr. Buck for strongly demanding that the employers release the fraudulently obtained lien. Despite irrefutable evidence of fraud by the employers, obtained form Ellen Golombek, Director of the Colorado Division of Labor, and the employer's own sworn testimony before the Court proving they had fraudulently obtained a lien on my home, Mr. Buck has refused to prosecute.  I had begged Mr. Buck for almost a year for help: by mail, by email, and by phone. On March 31, 2011 my wife and I met personally with Mr. Buck, at which time he stated (of the fraudulent lien), "you just need to get over it, and move on with your life". On April 7, 2011, I attempted to meet with Mr. Buck again, newly acquired evidence in hand, that Dream Stone, Inc. had committed class 3 felony theft by deception, criminal conspiracy, wire fraud, and mail fraud. Mr. Buck menacingly stated, "I don't care, that's not my problem". I was then immediately forcibly escorted out of the building by 5 armed Weld County Sheriff's Officers, and ordered never to attempt to contact Mr. Buck again. Mr. Buck has violated my Constitutionally guaranteed rights to equal protection under the law, and is currently aiding and abetting multiple felony acts committed by my former employers. 

    I am still facing criminal charges for demanding that the fraudulent lien be released from my home, and Mr. Buck has proven that his stance is that the former employers will be allowed to commit any felony act they so choose, and may seek the protection of law enforcement when they decide they don't like the way their victim reacts. 

    Mr. Buck is a pompous, arrogant sociopath: wrong for Weld County, and definitely WRONG for the People of the State of Colorado. My family and I are merely going to lose our home, in large part, due to this corrupt individual. In my case, matters could be worse. I could be gay, or I could have been a rape victim. Neither scenario is without extreme bias and prejudice  in Mr. Buck's demented little world.

    I was excited reading this post. The authors also wrote that he is very good. I am very fond of such posts

    A lot of Colorado people know Ken Buck is as crooked as a dog's hind leg, but that seems to make him the candidate of choice because he is so corrupt. It is a lot easier to control a crook than an honest man. Although Michael Bennet has some pretty shady dealings in his past, he does not have the crazy gene.

    He will still get a lot of votes from Republicans who could care less about what he did in the past. Of course, if it were a Democrat, the Republican media would be all up in arms about this.
