Re: Leslie Lewis Investigation, October 2010


Dear Mr. Kroger:

By now your offices in Salem have received our letter of June 14, 2011, in which we requested a reopening or reinvestigation into the Yamhill County Commissioner Leslie Lewis wiretapping investigation of October 2011. That letter was received in the Salem office on June 16, 2011 at 12:22 PM. They have also by now received the second raft of signatories of that letter. -

As of this date, we have not received any kind of a reply from you or your Department. We are copying this third letter of request to both your Salem and Portland offices, with the copies of the previous letter and signatories.

In light of the resignation and reassignment of Sean Riddell because of his unfortunate habitual pattern of mistakes made in the "Energy Department investigation and its 2010 contract with a company co-owned by Cylvia Hayes, Gov. John Kitzhaber's companion, as well as the criminal investigation of former Umatilla County District Attorney Dean Gushwa," (http://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2011/06/chief_counsel_sean_riddell_res.html) we again ask that you direct your Department to reopen or reinvestigate the Lewis Wiretapping Affair.

These developments now lend an aura of potential unreliability to all of his work which may reasonably be extended to all parts of his duties, including the Lewis investigation.

We, the concerned citizens of Yamhill County again respectfully and strongly request that you direct that the investigation of this matter be reviewed and reopened.  Thank you for your personal attention to this matter. 

Enclosed please find an addressed stamped envelope for the convenience of your reply. We will assume that if we do not hear from you within 10 working day of receipt of this letter, that you intend to take no further action to prosecute the Leslie Lewis Wiretapping Affair, and will then pursue whatever other options of Justice of which we may ethically and legally avail ourselves.
