Traficant Alleges FBI Inproprieties in 2001
AFFIDAVIT OF MICHAEL TERLECKY
By James Traficant
AFFIDAVIT OF MICHAEL TERLECKY -- HON. JAMES A. TRAFICANT, JR. (Extensions of Remarks - January 30, 2001)
Mr. TRAFICANT . Mr. Speaker, today, I am submitting an affidavit by Michael Terlecky of Mahoning County for the record. The affidavit, signed and sworn on the fourth of January, 2000, alleges Federal Bureau of Investigation corruption in the Youngstown, Ohio area.
Terlecky, as a Mahoning County Deputy Sheriff, worked exclusively with the Youngstown Police Department Special Investigations Unit (SIU) to raid and eliminate illegal gambling rings in the Mahoning Valley. He was removed from active duty in 1988 because of a physical disability.
The affidavit alleges gross misconduct on the part of FBI agents Robert Kroner and Larry Lynch. As the affidavit illustrates, Terlecky was manipulated and neutralized by the local FBI agents' efforts to protect the FBI's participation in illegal activities. Michael Terlecky was dangerous to the local FBI. He was also an unlucky man for having stumbled upon the connections of the Prato/Naples faction and the FBI.
The Terlecky affidavit is being submitted today to the CONGRESSIONAL RECORD as supporting documentation for my bill H.R. 4105, The Fair Justice Act. This bill would create an agency to oversee the U.S. Department of Justice and prosecute those involved in any wrongdoing. Today, when something is amiss in the Justice Department, it investigates itself, much like the fox guarding the henhouse. An independent oversignt agency would eliminate the conflict of interest that exists today when wrongdoing occurs in the Justice Department.
After having been duly sworn in accordance with law, I, Michael S. Terlecky hereby depose and say:
Further affiant sayeth naught.
Sworn to and subscribed before me, a notary public, in and for the County of Mahoning, this 4th day of January 2001.
M. Suzanne Falcon, Notary Public, State of Ohio. My commission expires Sept. 13, 2005
