Illustrative Correspondence to SENATOR HOYLMAN,
establishing what he knew & when

 

---------------------------------

BACKGROUND -- PERSPECTIVE
Hoylman's self-dealing by his repeated introduction of a bill to establish a Commission on Legislative Compensation -- all the while "sitting on" the proof that such commission scheme is a vehicle for fraud and unconstitutionality, first presented to him by CJA's below June 4, 2013 letter.  The cost of that commission scheme, to date, is approximately HALF A BILLION DOLLARS in monies stolen from the taxpayers.
