KingCast continues to applaud NH State Rep Peyton Hinkle as Cold Case bill (HB 690) moves toward passage with a public hearing on 30 April.

The Honorable Peyton Hinkle wrote me yesterday to inform me of this: The Cold Case Bill is set for public hearing April 30 at 2:15 in Rm. 102. I doubt it will be canceled like the Right to Know hearing, ha. Read the comments. Now coincidentally I have some work to do in NH that day so it sure would be nice if I could make a visit to provide my testimony about the Dow Murders and Gregory Floyd's unsolved murder of Liko Kenny, as well as the fact that Kenney's shooting of Bruce McKay was mislabeled as a murder when it was really either manslaughter or self-defense.

What Dr. John P. Brown says about Kelly Ayotte:"RE: Kelly Ayotte, Against reappointment as Attorney General

Dear Governor Lynch:

I urge you to nominate someone other than Kelly Ayotte to serve the next full Attorney General term. Ms. Ayotte may well be an exceptionally competent staff attorney but she does not appear to have the requisite leadership or management skills to ensure integrity and compliance with law throughout the Justice Department. The still accumulating record indicates an abysmal failure of leadership on her part with respect to my own area of expertise.......

......During Ms. Ayotte’s watch, the Board [of Mental Health] became the only professional licensing board in this state to ever undergo a legislatively ordered performance audit. As a direct result of the audit’s critical findings, HB 420 was recently enacted into law to statutorily specify recusal and accountability requirements universally accepted elsewhere but long rejected by Board members and agents. An even stronger Board reform bill, HB 688, is presently being worked on in the House. The Board is also presently undergoing an audit-instigated, painfully overdue rewriting of its administrative rules. The Board’s massive violations of the right-to-know-law are awaiting litigation under circumstances almost certain to expose serious violations of public trust knowingly abetted by Justice Department attorneys. All of this can be traced to leadership failures that made integrity and impartial law enforcement optional within the Justice Department rather than accountably required.

On March 21, 2005 I personally wrote to Ms. Ayotte drawing her attention to the serious continuing problems at the interface of the Board and Justice Department. There was no response to this letter, not even perfunctory acknowledgment of its receipt. Since then her subordinates have continued to misleadingly resist essential legislative reforms, to repeatedly reject legitimate right-to-know requests, and to non-accountably shut down the Board’s disciplinary process rather than injecting impartiality and lawfulness into timely complaint resolutions."
