Criminal Indictment for PA Governor Tom Wolf

I just left this as a comment on post about the "opioid epidemic" on Governor Tom Wolf's Facebook page:
I added photos for the blog. -- BH

LEGAL NOTICE: This Indictment is solely the work of William Huston. I am speaking on behalf of no one named in this complaint, except for perhaps Raymond Kemble, whom I believe would agree substantially.

I gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Craig Stevens, Vera Scroggins, and Bret Jennings in building the historical timeline, along with some confidential sources.
The persons named herein are well known, and have been written about in press articles for nearly a decade. Some people named here are under gag orders. Ray Kemble, Craig Stevens, and I all intent to legally challenge the legitimacy of these gag orders, as they impede the investigation into a suspected Public Health Crisis. However, none of us would intend to place others in jeopardy by publishing statements which would violate their agreements

Please do not infer that anyone (named or unnamed) endorses these statements other that myself or aided in the authorship.  I alone take sole responsibility for the statements and materials herein.

[I] just [cried as I read this]." -- a reader


Recognize those harmed by the Oil and Gas industry, Tom Wolf. The time has come. This no longer just a matter of whether you get reelected. This is an indictment of HIGH CRIMES.

How is it that your dreams are not haunted by visions of Victoria Switzer's brown water and her warm smile? How can you harm her, and her family, through your negligence, inaction, or worse? Is your heart made of stone?

Is money worth more to you than clean water?
Mni Wiconi. Water is Life.

Victoria is entitled to CLEAN WATER DELIVERIES under Title 58 § 3218 of the 1984 Oil and Gas, as amended by Act 13 (2012). 

So is Ray Kemble. So are Ron and Jean Carter, The Elys and the Huberts... and many others. 

Can you explain why these families are not receiving water AS REQUIRED BY LAW? 

I hope the faces of Nolen Scott Ely's children HAUNT YOU. Everywhere you go, you see them. Even if you close your eyes, you see images of Randy Moyer's body.

You close your eyes, but you still see Terry Greenwood holding a stillborn calf (RIP, Terry). You see Carol French holding a Ball jar of her greenish-brown Sheshequin water over on Paradise Road in Terry Twp, in front of homes contaminated by fracking a well 4,000'ft away.

You try to block your ears, yet you hear Rebecca Roter whispering, "It's 9-4-4-2, Tom".

But what does it mean!?

I want the voice of Vera Scroggins echoing in the back of your mind, reminding you that Cabot Oil & Gas has 661 violations in Susquehanna County alone. Just 5 more to signify the Mark of the Beast.

What's the limit? When do we pull the plug? Clearly it's more than the 63 people (including minor children) in Dimock (pop 1500) with contaminated wells. Clearly its more than the 400+ families who were receiving replacement water in 2012 JUST IN ONE COUNTY (Washington)?

It must be more than the 661 violations issued to Cabot Oil & Gas. Clearly it's more than the 973 PA DEP determination letters found by Laura Legere and published by The Scranton Times-Tribune? Clearly it's more than the 9,442 air and water quality complaints found by Public Herald? Clearly its more than the $11,664,180 in fines paid by Cabot Oil and Gas according to MarcellusGas dot org?

SO what does it take Tom? How many violations and fines to an individual operator before you SHUT THEM DOWN? How many adults minor children must be gagged by Non-Disclosure Agreements before you say that there has been a COVERUP of a Public Health Epidemic? How many people should get sick or die before you declare a moratorium on the entire industry?

Maybe there is no limit. Why mess up the Gravy Train? Ca-ching, baby! PA DEP needs to use a rake to wrangle all the $$$$ coming in from Permit Fees.

Candidate Wolf meets with Impacted Dimock Families 8/8/2014
L-R: Rebecca Roter, Brooklyn Twp, Barbara Clifford, Montrose, PA, Candidate Wolf, Victoria
Switzer, Dimock, Frank Finan, Hop Bottom, Jean Carter, Dimock, Nolen "Scott" Ely, Dimock.
And I especially want you to keep hearing the words of DEC EHB Judge Bernard Labuskas in your head, telling Ron and Jean Carter, and 18 other families,  

The Environmental Hearing Board denies a petition for supersedeas filed by several homeowners in Dimock, Pennsylvania because a supersedeas is only available if a party is threatened with unavoidable, irreparable harm before the case can be resolved, and these parties need not suffer any such harm. Although Cabot terminated temporary water supplies, temporary water deliveries will resume immediately for any Petitioner who simply indicates that he or she is willing to at least try a whole-house gas mitigation device (proven to be ineffective -- Editor) paid for by Cabot and installed by plumbers hired by Cabot.
But this was 12-9-2011, nine days AFTER the water deliveries had ceased, as ordered by Scott Perry, PA DEP Undersecretary of Oil and Gas.The water deliveries NEVER resumed.

BY WHAT AUTHORITY does Scott Perry and Bernard Labuskes -- WHO BOTH WORK AT THE PLEASURE OF THE GOVERNOR --- deny these families access to clean drinking water?

PA Government to Carter Road Families:
Your rights to remedy under law are extinguished."

This is beyond being "Civilly Dead."
Without Water, our body will die.

You did not cause these problems, TRUE.

But YOU ARE COMPLICIT in the coverup until you SPEAK OUT and acknowledge the harmed.

You are COMPLICIT while you continue to allow Cabot -- one of the WORST industrial polluters in the Commonwealth, to continue to operate.

You are COMPLICIT IN THESE CRIMES every day you deny Scott Ely's family, and the Hubert's, and all the others, CLEAN WATER DELIVERIES as is their GUARANTEED RIGHT UNDER LAW!

All of the Carter Rd.-area impacted persons, at least 63 in total, if they still living there, are entitled to CLEAN WATER DELIVERIES until a PERMANENT SOLUTION is in place. Title 58 § 3218 of the 1984 Oil and Gas, as amended by Act 13 (2012).

Can you explain why Ray Kemble of Dimock is not receiving water deliveries? His water was determined to be impacted by drilling by the PA DEP 4-15-2010 in Dimock/Springville COSA#2 (of 4). There are at least 63 total people in the Dimock/Springville area who have water impacts, according to the 2009 Federal Lawsuit and 4x COSA agreements.

These are HIGH CRIMES, Tom. These are GROTESQUE violations of law, and of people's constitutional rights. People are getting POISONED by this industry. This is not hyperbole. It is an EMERGENCY. The people did not ask for this.

Dimock is like Love Canal, only Love Canal was EVACUATED. Shale Gas Fracking has produced victims in PANDEMIC proportions! But that would look bad, so the people are sentenced to live over poisoned wells.

There has been Widespread and Systemic water contamination from fracking. IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA. Just check the map I made of a subset of the Laura Legere dataset, showing 313 families in just 6 counties in NE PA with contaminated wells.

The contamination goes wherever this is drilling and fracking. The data is all publicly available.

Unlike the AIDS epidemic, or Ebola, or Zika, or Winter Storm Quinn, the public health response to human+animal health impacts from drilling+fracking has been ZERO.

Worse, the Government of the Commonwealth has been complicit in the COVERUP of the Harmed! There are DOZENS of examples, such as the Suite Code 942 scandal. Or the DOH "Buzzword list", or how the DEP Attorneys developed the "Consent Order and Settlement Agreement" technique to bundle together groups of impacted people in a community, and "make them go away" with cash payouts, gag orders, fines, and stipulations.

EVEN WORSE! The Government of the Commonwealth is ENABLING the poisoning to continue by continuing to issue permits and to allow the worst polluters, who are rogue of the law, to reap profits, while people, forests, animals, fish, an entire Eco-system is irreparably harmed.

This is not acceptable.
You don't have much time, Tom.
There is a giant magnifying glass of inquiry coming your way.
You cannot escape it.

You can be a hero, and get reelected.
Become a champion for the people.
Or you can become unemployed... or maybe worse.
An Inquiry is coming. I promise you that.

It is not to late to save yourself, but this requires prompt action.
What you can do is "Come to Jesus" PDQ.
This means: you must Recognize the Harmed.
Ask Jenny Lisak for the list.
Come to the places impacted.
Meet the people. Listen to their stories.

Meet the people whose family members are sick and dying.
Meet Bryan Latkanich, whose 7 y/o son Ryan emerged from a bath, with bleeding sores covering his body, and then who became incontinent.

Ron Gulla, Ray Kemble, Carol French, Vera Scroggins, Frank Finan and Melissa Troutman can connect you with others.

Do the right thing.
This is a criminal indictment.

It is not to late to save yourself.
