D.A. Ken Thompson… Contributions Speak Volumes

ken thompson
Advocates are furious he has taken thousands in campaign donations from bigwigs in the Satmar community, a Hasidic sect that strenuously opposes any secular oversight into sexual molestation accusations. The donations were first reported in The Jewish Week.
“Our frustration is that we feel he needs to talk to the victims and the community and not to those politically affiliated,” Miriam Nockenofsky, an advocate for Jewish sex abuse victims.  “Why is that he’s only talking to the leaders? It’s not right.”  The Daily News

 

Does D.A. Thompson’s Campaign Contribution List Reflect a Cottage Industry of Protecting ultra-Orthodox Serial Child Molesters, Fraudsters and Other Criminals Within the Ultra-Orthodox/Orthodox Community?

Lost Messiah, July 11, 2016

We began looking at DA Thompson months ago, having been alerted that he has a penchant for setting serial child abusers free, accepting reduced sentences (link to an article about the 60-day sentence given to someone with 52 counts and 4 victims) and even ignoring cases.

With the request for assistance in identifying Moses Friedman, we looked more closely.

In 2015, D.A. Thompson’s NYS Campaign Finance Disclosure (12th Name down) showed a $1,000.00 contribution from Attorney Aidala, who is representing Friedman. Since the payment of a $10,000.00 bail by Friedman, there have been 14 adjournments for an incident dated September 1, 2013. The children Friedman allegedly hurt will never be free from reliving this abuse and yet Friedman remains a Free-Man, the irony.

On October 26, 2015, Howard Fensterman contributed $5,000.00 to D.A. Thompson.

On January 11, 2016, D.A. Thomspon received a $5,000.00 contribution (2nd name down) from Israel Goldberg. Israel Goldberg represents Yeshiva Lev Bais Yakov, a Yeshiva which is no stranger to controversy. On July 9, 29015 an article in Vosizneias reported that a Brooklyn Judge “Appears Shocked that Anonymous Unsubstantiated Tip Prompted Orthodox Girls School to Expel Student.” The girl was expelled for apparently texting “an inappropriate picture” to a boy, an allegation that was unsubstantiated. As early as 2011 there were reported incidents with Yeshiva Lev Bais Yakov. Adkan published the account of a girl’s abuse at the hands of her teacher. (http://www.adkanenough.com/survivors-letters/bais-yaakov-girls-frightening-story).There are many other accounts. It is handy to have a D.A. in the pocket of a yeshiva.

 In 2015 Bent Philipson contributed $10,000 twice. Jack Basch – partner to Joel Landau (Allure, Rivington and Deed Revisions fame) gave D.A. Thompson $10,000 (not pictured).

The list of the notorious, the accused, the never-convicted, the convicted and freed all of whom have contributed to D.A. Thompson’s campaign finances is a veritable smorgasbord of people whose fate would likely be quite different but for Thompson’s morally challenged lack of conscience.

We ask you, D.A. Thompson:

  • What price would we have to donate to gain convictions for those who deserve to be convicted?
  • How much would it cost to have you put a serial child molester behind bars?
  • What currency would you want to respect the position for which you have been elected and apparently generously compensated?
  • What is your price for…?
