Sentencing News – Politics

Moffatt Media, Palmdale, California

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fortenberry served as a Congressional Rep., from 2005-2022 (17 years) and resigned on March 26, 2022, after pressure by Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader.    

June 28, 2022 Fortenberry is to be sentenced.  Fortenberry’s sentence was prompted by a federal Jury that found Fortenberry guilty on March 25, 2022.

Along with a Grand Jury Indictment, filed against Fortenberry back on 10/19/2021, in the United States District Court Central District of California. JEFF FORTENBERRY NEBRASA CONGRESSMAN GJ JUNE 2021

But Fortenberry pleaded not guilty for supposedly giving False Statements to FBI agents (2016) on $30k Foreign Campaign Donation, at a California Fundraising Event. 

Fortenberry has served as a Nebraska Congressional Rep., who now finds himself facing “Excessive Sentencing,” for alleged nonviolent offense.

  • Public Interest Concern Question:  Why did Tracy Wilkison, Prosecutor-Acting United States Attorney,  NOT affix her own signature onto the Indictment, against Fortenberry

Because Wilkison was not officially appointed as a United States Attorney for the Central District until November 16, 2021, by Merrick Garland, United States Attorney General.  

  • Second Public Interest Concern Question:  Why is Fortenberry facing a statutory “Mandatory Maximum   Sentencing?”

Because President Biden has failed to restore the United States Sentencing Commission, since January 21, 2020.

Did you know, that both Congressional Representatives Armstrong and Raskin said the lack of quorum also meant the commission cannot update the advisory sentencing guidelines needed to help implement the law, resulting potentially in its uneven application by judges across the country.  

Sadly Biden’s intentional act not to appoint ANY commissioners on the Sentencing Commission, takes another toll on our American criminal justice system!

Installing a new Sentencing Commission would help prevent “Excessive Sentencing” to reform criminal Mandatory Maximum Sentencing, that contribute towards: “Massive Incarceration,” even against alleged nonviolent offenders including Fortenberry.

Since Biden’s failure to restore the Sentencing Commission, Fortenberry’s Sentence should be put on STAY.

In consequence, Fortenberry’s landmark case is an example to now call on Congress with evaluating and reforming 18 U.S. Code §1001, that imposes a Mandatory Maximum Sentencing 5 years.  In Fortenberry case (5 years x 3 counts)=15 year sentence Fortenberry is facing in prison.

Noting, without restoring the United States Sentencing Commission, confidence in the uniformity and fairness of our criminal justice system is gone!

With a broken criminal justice system American Citizens like Fortenberry are now becoming the target of  false criminal charges conjured by American rogue prosecutors.   

Fortberry, will be sentenced on three felony charges, that carries Maximum 15 years in prison, which is an “Excessive Sentence,” even if Fortenberry were to serve one day in Prison away from his family. 

Now as a Congressman who understands the absolute abuse of power brought by a select few corrupt individuals within the Justice Dept … my heart goes out to Congressman Fortenberry and his family for the injustice they have suffered,” said Rep. Rick Renzi

The Judge in Fortenberry’s case can do the right thing by issuing Court Ordered Community Service to Fortenberry with preventing another “Excessive Sentencing,” scheme.

Congress, it is time to bring more attention to “Mandatory Maximum Sentencing,” laws!  Because these same laws cause cruel punishment and “Excessive Sentencing,” where logic does not hold especially towards nonviolent offenders. 

Thus, a 15 year “Mandatory Maximum Sentence” against Fortenberry would be an “Excessive Sentence.”

Kevin McCarthy Congressman had no immediate response.

Military Veteran No Vote for Lisa McClain Congressional Representative

INTERVIEW BY MOFFATT MEDIA WITH MILITARY VETERAN

Moffatt Media, Palmdale, California
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Updated 5/21/2022, Saturday

Interview by Moffatt Media, Voting Insights with Randy Hayes, U.S. Military Veteran, says Vote “NO” for Lisa McClain for (2022) Congress.

Veteran Hayes said he will also be encouraging other Military Veterans to Vote “NO,” for Lisa McClain, during her upcoming  Congressional Reelection Campaign.

Moffatt Media: Randy, why are you voting “NO” for Lisa McClain Congressional Rep.?
Randy Hayes: I reached out to McClain’s Michigan and Washington DC Congressional Offices.   Because I was asking for Veterans Assistance and  was told that their offices weren’t able to help me even though I am a Military Veteran and live in her district.

I was only asking for Lisa McClain, Congressional Rep. to make a Congressional Inquiry to assist me with Visiting my Mother (Betty Hayes).  Since the Michigan Wayne County Probate Court, is causing Age Discrimination against my Mother.

My Mother is a protected class member under the Older Americans Act.  From what I have learned the Michigan Probate Court can’t discriminate against my Mother, who is age 87, while in receipt of Federal monies. 

Now back to Congressional Rep. McClain, all I wanted from her was to assist me as a Veteran, but both her Michigan and Washington D.C. offices claimed they couldn’t help me!

It’s really sad when McClain Congressional Rep. was not even willing to make a telephone call on my behalf as a Military Veteran.   Guess I was wrong to think that McClain Congressional Rep. provided Veteran Services.

I have no criminal record and I have never been arrested.    Again, how hard would it be for Congressional Rep. McClain to even make a simple telephone call to the Court, regarding visitations with my mother?
 
Moffatt Media: Randy, what military branch did you serve in?
Randy Hayes: I served in the Marine Corps Reserve from 1982-1988 and I missed Desert Storm.  From 1992-1995, I was in the Navy Seabees.

Moffatt Media: Randy why did you join the military?
Randy Hayes: I wanted to serve my country and be the best.

Moffatt Media: What age were you when you joined the Military?
Randy Hayes: 18

Moffatt Media: Randy you mentioned that you will be encouraging other Military Veterans to VOTE NO for Congressional Rep. McClain, what steps are you taking to spread the word, vote no on McClain?
Randy Hayes: I am a member of The American Legion, Post 351, Member of The Marine Corps League and I have over 2,000 friends on Facebook, who are mostly military veterans, that I will encourage them to VOTE NO for Ms. McClain.

Moffatt Media: Randy do you have any final words?
Randy Hayes: I have in the past supported Congressional Rep. McClain and  listened to too many of her speeches. Now I will gladly go to Ms. McClain’s opponents to discuss how she has no regard for supporting Veterans.  Because  Ms. McClain has the power to assist me and my mother with a simple telephone call due to the outrageous actions by the Wayne County Probate Court.

It’s time to stand up for those that have lost their “Elder Rights” by the Michigan Wayne County Probate Court.

Congresswoman McClain’s office had no immediate comment.
